I had a great race this past weekend with my
co-driver, Robin Fawcett, at the Cahuilla Creek
Round 6 of the WORCS ATV series in my Blais
Racing Services, HRT, Dragonfire Racing, Fox
Shox, Mastercraft, Fluidyne Powersports, FMF
Polaris RZR. Into the first turn, we were
2nd place behind the very fast customer based
RZR of Mark Holz. We stayed as close as
possible to them in the tight, back section and
passed them as we came back into the MX track.
They soon passed us back by out-powering us on
the next uphill. We ended up following
them the entire race, never much more than a car
length behind. We pushed them really hard
in the tight back sections as my car was
handling really well. I bumped them a few times
to pressure Mark but he didn't make any big
mistakes until the next to last lap. I had a
problem in one turn that I didn't make and had
to back up. They were now about 15 seconds
ahead by the time I got going again.
With some clear air we caught right back up to
them in the next mile and then they rolled on
their left side in a turn. The ruts were
so deep that I had to back up twice to try and
get out of them so I could get around the first
place team. By that time, the course
workers had just tipped them back onto their
wheels and I made my way around in the thick
brush and into the lead. I stayed on the
gas and ended up getting in one extra lap with
just 25 seconds left in the race!
Congratulations to Mark for driving an excellent
race. I had a great time racing with him.
Thanks to all of my awesome sponsors that helped
me get back to racing. Red Bull, HRT

co-driver, Robin Fawcett for a good time, as
