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 Standings.

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.
