Eichner on a Roll!
Chino, CA - April 18, 2008
- Racing legend Doug Eichner is on a winning
streak. He had a great weekend at the Lake
Havasu, AZ round of the World Off-Road
Championship Series (WORCS) winning both the Pro
ATV and Pro Production classes. He is currently
the points leader in the ITP QuadCross Series
with a pair of wins at the first two rounds.
Eichner and his Yoshimura-tuned Polaris are
eating up the competition.
In the WORCS series, seven-time Ponte De Vaux
winner and Polaris Factory racer rode his potent
Polaris Outlaw 525 S for the win in the Pro
Production class in the first round in Phoenix
as well as securing both the Pro Production and
the Pro ATV First Place podiums at Havasu on
The double win at Havasu was sweet for both
Eichner and Yoshimura. "I won the Pro Production
class on my Yoshimura Maxxis Polaris 525."
Eichner said. "I was second off the start and
figured I needed to make a quick pass, within a
few corners I saw my opportunity and took it,
from there I ran a solid race and took the
Doug dominating the weekend's racing by
claiming the win in the Pro ATV race the next
day. "Once again, my Yoshimura Maxxis sponsored
Polaris ATV got me the holeshot, from there I
just put my head down and ran my own race trying
to put in consistent lap times. Typically Lake
Havasu is a physically demanding event due to
the heat, but this year the heat was not a
factor for me at all."
Last weekend, Eichner went to Phoenix to hold
his points lead in the ITP QuadCross Series -- a
totally different breed of ATV racing.
"I finished 1-1 in the Open Pro class at the
Buckey MX Track in Phoenix. The 2 moto formats
are cool. In the first moto I was about 2nd off
the start and made the pass for the lead going
into the 3rd corner. I checked out from there.
The 2nd moto was easier since I got the holeshot
and ran away with the win. It was a good weekend
Doug uses Yoshimura pipes and engine building
services and feels they help give him an edge.
"I can't say enough about the power Yoshimura
products give me on race day - there is plenty
of performance from start to finish."
This weekend all eyes are on Doug to see if
he can keep this streak up by winning the WORCS
in Auburn, WA. Good Luck Doug!
