Motoworks / Can-Am DS
450 Racers Notch Wins in WORCS and SCORE Series
Québec, March 23, 2012 – Team Motoworks /
Can-Am® racers Josh Frederick and Dillon
Zimmerman finished on the Pro class podium at
round three of the World Off Road Championship
Series (WORCS) race in Lake Havasu City, Ariz.
Frederick won his second straight WORCS event
and Zimmerman earned his first career WORCS
podium. The two racers also recently teamed up
to win the Pro class on the Can-Am DS 450™ at
the 2012 SCORE San Felipe 250 in Mexico.
“Josh and Dillon have been working hard to put
Team Motoworks / Can-Am and the DS 450 out in
front of the competition whenever they compete,”
said Jimmie O’Dell, Race Manager, Can-Am. “We’re
very pleased with the recent racing results out
west. Both of them battled hard to earn the San
Felipe 250 victory and followed that up with a
1-3 showing on the WORCS podium in Arizona. I’m
very pleased with these guys reaching the podium
and getting victories in two different series.”
Frederick came out of
the dead-engine start in third at Crazy Horse
Campground in Lake Havasu City, Ariz. After a
slight bobble slowed his pace on lap four,
Frederick regained a top-three position a lap
later. On lap nine, he took the lead and never
looked back. He won by more than 40 seconds,
posted his second consecutive victory and is now
the Pro class points leader with 72.
“It was rough out there, but once I got in the
lead, I just kind of cruised,” said Frederick.
“I’m taking it one race at a time and just
trying to give my best at every race. I was
really excited to have Dillon on the podium with
Zimmerman battled back from a slow
first lap to earn his first top-three Pro class
finish. He was in sixth after one lap, but by
the midpoint of the race he was challenging for
a podium spot. His third-place ride also moved
into fourth place in the Pro class standings.
“I got a good start but I got hung up
behind another rider in the third turn,” said
Zimmerman. “I was almost dead last, but put my
head down and kept going.”
Frederick and Zimmerman powered
their Motoworks / Can-Am DS 450 to a dominating
victory in the SCORE San Felipe 250 desert race.
Using a Can-Am ATV set up for WORCS racing and
taller tires, the team completed the race in
6:01:53 and averaged a speed of 41.22 MPH. Its
overall time was around 12 minutes better than
the runner-up team.
“This was the first
time I have raced any of the SCORE races and it
was a really incredible experience. The course
was fun, there were a lot of spectators just out
in the middle of nowhere; it was very unique,
and the fact that we won, makes it even better,”
Team Motoworks / Can-Am
racers compete in the WORCS, SCORE, BITD, GNCC
and AMA ATV Motocross series aboard the DS 450.
Reigning AMA ATV MX Champion John Natalie will
defend his 2011 title Saturday, March 24 at
Aonia Pass MX in Washington, Ga.
