DATS Racing

DATS Racing Report from WORCS Round #5
WORCS Rd#5: 06/12/09 - Toutle, WA

Hurricane. Ut- 6/12/09 - DATS Racing sent a skeleton crew to Toutle, WA this past weekend, actually only Johnny Shafe and Garrett Stucki made the trip. Previous Snow family plans and the late race date move from WORCS made it impossible to go, so Shafe represented the Kawasaki green machine from Utah in the Pro class. Shafe had a terrific race going with a 2nd on the hole shot and then ended up getting bumped off of the track on the 2nd jump losing 3 spots.  He maintained the 5th spot for most of the race until the rubber intake boot pulled away from the airbox and the engine expired.   We are running into issues this year that we never experienced over the last 2 years.

“Johnny has been giving his all for the DATS Racing team and he along with our crew was looking for his best finish of the year.  We are going to continue to work hard to get Johhny into the top 5 and at a minimum the top 10 for year end. These 2 months off will be great to analyze and make the necessary changes to come out swinging for the second half of the WORCS ATV series.” Darin Snow of DATS.

Pro-Am rider and DATS crew member, Garrett Stucki rode well before succumbing to problems as well in the 2-hr monster event. Stucki who was slammed into a tree from behind by an over aggressive blue plate after he got passed by a red plate. The incident injured his knee and hopefully he will be back up and running for the next round in 2 months at Straddleline.

Round 6 will see the return of DATS Pro rider, Robbie Mitchell returning from his shoulder injury.
