Lynden, WA (August 22, 2011) Holz Racing
competed in four classes at two events over the
weekend and enjoyed one first place finish, two
second place finishes and one third.
On Friday, pilot Matt Parks and copilot Mark
Holz were first off the starting line in UTV Pro
Class at this year’s Vegas to Reno race, part of
the Best in the Desert Off Road Racing Series,
billed as the longest off-road race in the
United States. The Parks Racing/Holz Racing RZR
4 was in and out of the lead until mile 420 when
heat and brutal terrain forced mechanical issues
and slowed the pace. Despite two breaks and
repairs, the team managed a second place finish.
“Finishing a 553 mile race through the triple
digit heat of the Nevada desert in August is an
accomplishment in itself” said Parks. “The fact
that we led most of the day and the team
overcame some issues late in the race to get
second is gratifying. We had a chance at the
win, but second still feels pretty good. My Holz-built
RZR 4 was super fast and was able to stay ahead
of machines with 25% more engine displacement.”
After finishing Vegas to Reno, Mark Holz flew
to Washougal, Washington to compete in the 6th
round of the World Off-Road Racing Championship
Series. After a long summer break, Holz was
anxious test the Holz Racing/Motoworks/Can-Am
Commander at the challenging Washougal MX Park.
Mark grabbed the holeshot at the start and
clocked the race’s fasted lap time of 09:18.083.
He led much of the race but fell to second on
the last lap. “It was an exciting race,” he
said. “We exchanged the lead a few times and I
was looking forward to a win, but I got hung up
behind a lapper and let it go.” Mark and his
Commander took second place in Side by Side
Class 1, but still finished more that 3 minutes
ahead of the third place UTV. He is in second
place in Series Points Standings.
Next up were Pro ATV and Pro-Am ATV Classes.
Holz Racing/Motoworks/Can-Am Riders Jeremie
Warnia and Josh Frederick have shared a dominant
season so far, but the day would belong to
Frederick. Josh made an explosive start to take
the holeshot, but dropped to third early.
Frederick fought back to second position and,
halfway into the race took over first place and
remained there through the finish. Teammate
Warnia was sore from a qualifying crash, but
managed to finish third. Jeremie still leads the
Series Points Standings with Josh close behind.
Collins Webster had a strong third place finish
in Pro-Am ATV Class on his Holz Racing/Can-Am
machine and leads his Class Series Points
Mark Holz, Josh Frederick, Jeremie Warnia and
Collins Webster will race WORCS Round 7 at Glenn
Helen MX in Devore, California on September 17.
Matt Parks will Race the BITD Bluewater Desert
Challenge in Parker, Arizona on October 14.
