With the WORCS Pro 2 Lites Championship coming down to the wire Brandon Leith made the long trip from Eagle Mountain, Utah to Adelanto, California to serve notice that he will be a contender in the future. The road trip paid off with Lieth’s first WORCS Pro 2 Lites victory of his career. Leith was impressive all day, cutting a 9:58 lap-time on his second go-around, to be one of only two Pro 2 Lites riders to cut a lap under the 10 minute marker.

Lake Havasu’s Steve Gibson put in a good ride as well to take second place. Gibson is a two-time WORCS Pro 2 Lites winner and currently sits third in the points chase. Taking third in Adelanto was point’s leader Evan Kelly. Kelly’s Malcolm Smith/Pro Circuit Yamaha is one of a few two-strokes on the grid. He’s used the YZ250’s power to win two main events and a handful of podiums so far this season. Kelly’s consistency and focus on the WORCS Series has him poised with a strong lead for the title.

Fourth place fell to Dylan Wallsmith, with Shane O’Dor taking fifth, Ty Tremaine sixth, Killian Woder seventh, Brandon Wrin eighth, David Broderick ninth, and Starr Savage tenth.

With one round remaining Kelly holds a 20 point lead in the Championship with 168/2 wins, ahead of Tremaine with 148/1 win, Steve Gibson 136/2 wins, and Eric Yorba with 110/2 wins. The final battle will be between Kelly and Tremaine on November 6th, 2011, at the WORCS final at Speed World MX in Surprise, Arizona.
