Fallbrook CA 9/13/2011 – Washougal WA It's a favorite course amongst WORCS racing regulars; a pleasant change of scenery from the desert terrain that is common with most of the WORCS track circuit. Washougal MX is well known for its loamy corners, dense tree sections and excellent spectator viewing areas - but round six of the 2012 WORCS series proved to be somewhat unpredictable.

First, there was the heat. Record breaking temperatures topped ninety-six degrees during Saturday's racing - with humidity! And if that wasn't hot enough, the WORCS tractor trailer was destroyed in an unfortunate fire. To top things off, Washougal combined ATVs and dirt bike classes at Washougal in an effort to cut costs - two weekends of racing combined into two days, and without a support trailer. Track conditions were brutal, and the dust often hampered racer visibility. However, in true works style, Shaun Reddish and his WORCS crew pulled off a prompt and trouble-free weekend of racing.

In Sunday's Pro-Am Main event, Roll Design/Elka riders Chase Thomas and Garrin Fuller finished first and second respectively, with Keith Johnson finishing just outside of the podium in fourth. Thomas's overall time bested more than half of the pro field, with a fastest lap time of 08:51.95. Fuller was forced into dealing with a flat tire, but still charged back into second.

The Johnson Family put together a Pro-Am Holeshot Award of $200 in remembrance of #312 Casey Johnson.  Roll Design/Elka rider DJ Noerr captured this first award of its kind.

In the Pro class, Can-Am's  Josh Frederick was first through turn one, with the MCR/Roll Design/Elka Honda of Beau Baron in chase. Baron caught Frederick in turn two, and then out torqued the #1 plate holder up hill. Baron led the first half of the race, but arm pump ensued,  allowing Frederick and Jeremie Warnia to close the gap, and then pass him during a pit stop. Refreshed, Baron caught and passed Warnia, but lap traffic only widened the gap to Frederick. This was Beau Barons third podium in a row, all with second place finishes.  He is currently third in Pro class series points.

Other Roll Design Pro Finishers-  Jarrod McClure nearly captured his first WORCS podium with a fourth place finish.  MCR's David Haagsma rode strong and claimed the fifth spot, with Dustin Nelson finishing just behind.

Continuing to prove its dominance in ATV racing, Roll Design equipped machines numbered four among the top six pro finishers.
