CAN-AM DS 450 WINS
PARKER 250 DESERT RACE
Valcourt, Québec, January 13, 2009 – The
tandem of Josh Frederick and Dillon Zimmerman
finished ahead of all other Quad Pro class
competitors, racing a Team Motoworks-prepped
Can-Am DS 450™ EFI ATV at the Best In The Desert
Parker 250 desert race. Cutting across the
desert at breakneck speed, the riders quickly
established themselves as the team to beat
during the three laps of the 83-mile loop.
Frederick and Zimmerman finished the race just
over five hours, nearly two minutes ahead of
"The Motoworks team was testing different
setting, using the Parker 250 as a tune-up race
for the upcoming WORCS series," says Jimmie
O'Dell, Racing Manager for Can-Am ATVs at BRP.
"So it was icing on the cake to get the big win
for the DS 450! Josh and Dillon rode a
blistering pace and we are encouraged with the
great start to the 2010 season."
Frederick is no stranger to success in desert
racing, as he was the Best In The Desert Quad
Pro champion in 2005. His teammate, Zimmerman,
is a relative newcomer to pure desert racing,
but has quickly established himself as a young
talent in the ATV racing world.
Bryan Buckhannon, who regularly races the
Grand National Cross Country Series back east,
took to the desert aboard a Can-Am Outlander™
800R EFI ATV with teammate Richard Goforth. The
two riders raced to the Quad Amateur win and
finished the race 10 minutes ahead of second
place in the class.
The next race for the two Motoworks riders
will be the WORCS opener January 24 near
Phoenix, AZ. Both riders are also racing the DWT
World MX Racing Championship with the final two
rounds February 6 and 7 near Anza, CA.
Buckhannon will race the 2010 GNCC opener on
February 28 in Florida.
