It was a great day for Blais Racing Services!
Owner Chris Blais and his brother, co-driver
Nick Blais, would take the Overall UTV win in
his HRT Motorsports, DragonFire Racing, Fox Shox,
Fluidyne Powersports, FMF, TLD, Kenda,
Mastercraft-sponsored Polaris RZR.
"We got the holeshot off the line and held it
for about half a lap until we made a slight
mistake on the course direction which let the
second place UTV by. We got behind him and
followed him for a while until we got on the
large Lucas Oil short course track section at
the eastern end of the course. We made the
pass for the lead and never looked back.
We averaged about 10 seconds faster than any
other machine out there and won by a couple of
minutes. This is the first time my brother
raced with me and we had a blast. Thanks
for everyone's support that helped us go racing
and to all my friends and family who came out to
Blais is now in contention for the WORCS PRO
UTV Class 1 Championship. The final round

Vikings MC Gran Prix Sept 4th
On Saturday September 4th, the Vikings MC
would hold their 6th Annual Grand Prix at
Cahuilla Creek MX Park in Anza, Ca. It was
a hot Labor Day weekend with temps into the
100's. The ATV race was delayed a bit and
would start at 2:00pm in the afternoon.
Patty states, "It was the hottest I ever got
during a race. It wasn't just the heat but
also the humidity with no wind."
Patty would get her best start ever, taking
off from Row 1 with the other Open Experts.
"It was a hand-on-helmet start, live engine, and
I was third to the first turn out of about 10 or
so guys. I was pretty pumped after that!
It really helped having a practice race this
morning. We (ATV's) don't usually get a
practice race but the Vikings made some time for
us and boy, what a difference." Along with
many other racers during this 45-minute race,
Patty was starting to feel a little dehydrated
but motored through the dust and heat to finish
in 6th Place!
Shamrocks MC Desert Scrambles
On Sunday September 26th, the Shamrocks MC
would host their annual desert event, this time
in Barstow, CA just behind the very well known
Slash X Café. This weekend, the Shamrocks
would hold four different races for all the
classes on four different race courses, with a
chance at earning four separate sets of race
points. "I raced the "C" course on Sunday.
It was so much fun! I prefer the faster
courses over the more technical ones, especially
on these 100-degree days. I got a good
start down the bomb-run and was running 5th
overall out of about 10 or 12 ATV's. I
passed two guys in the first lap, which would
put me in 3rd overall. During the race,
another racer had to pull over for a flat tire
which would now put me in 2nd overall.
During our third and final lap in this one-hour
European Scrambles, one of the guys passed me
back so I ended up 3rd Overall and 1st Place
Expert. I was very happy with that finish.
It was a fun race and a great course!" stated
