Minneapolis, Feb. 28, 2008 – The Polaris/Lone Star/Eichner Racing team rolled out of the Mesquite, NV WORCS with a win in the “Rhino Mod” class and their second first place of the season in “Women A.”

With 12 side by side units on the starting line, Racing Legend, Doug Eichner, once again, gave a holeshot start in the “Rhino Mod” class aboard his RANGER RZR.  Eichner held off the competition with his aggressive but smart driving style. Eichner’s co-pilot was, George Fickett, his respected motor builder from Yoshimura R&D of America Inc. who claimed, “It was the most fun he has ever had.”  Despite feeling under the weather, Eichner gave a hard charge leading the race from start to finish.  Eichner’s RANGER RZR is equipped with FOX Racing Shox, Fullbore Innovations body, MasterCraft seats and harnesses with a red roll cage, arms and bumpers by Lone Star Racing. Eichner is leading the “Rhino Mod” standings with 39 points.

Angela Butler continued her winning ways by getting her second win of the season, on the Polaris Outlaw 450, in the “Women A” class and ran tenth in the “Pro Am” class. Butler sits atop the point standings in “Women A” with 42 points and seventh in “Pro Am” with 25 points.

The next WORCS race is scheduled for March 21-23, in Lake Havasu, Arizona.
