Beau Baron Wins Second Straight at Primm
Primm, NV – H&M Motorsports’ Beau Baron clinched his second win of the season at round two of the 2015 Rocky Mountain MC World Off-Road Championship Series Presented By Maxxis and Dirt Wheels series at Buffalo Bill’s where he was joined on the WORCS Pro ATV podium by David Haagsma and Robbie Mitchell, while Mike Sloan claimed victory in the WORCS Pro-am class.
As the quads left the start line, H&M Motorsports’ David Haagsma and Robbie Mitchell were side by side, with Haagsma edging out Mitchell for the holeshot. Not far behind, was defending Pro ATV champ, Beau Baron in third. Baron, who has been feeling under the weather, was able to make the pass on Mitchell in the third lap and then closed the gap on Haagsma.
Haagsma was riding fast but in the final laps, Baron was able to make the pass and take home his second win of the season.
H&M Motorsport’s David Haagsma pinched out Robbie Mitchell and took the Pro ATV holeshot. Haagsma was looking strong and fast as he kept a blistering pace for most of the race took its toll on his hands, which also began to blister and forced Haagsma to slow down, which dropped him back into the second spot on the podium.
LMR Racing’s Robbie Mitchell, who is known for getting good starts, was bar to bar with David Haagsma off the line, but got pinched out of the holeshot in the first turn. Mitchell kept a fast pace and stayed close to the leader and finished out the day with this second straight podium finish to kick off the 2015 WORCS season.
Duncan Racing’s Garrin Fuller didn’t get the start he was looking for and had to battle it out with Josh Row for the first two laps before moving into the fourth spot, which he held to the checkered flag.
This weekend couldn’t have been more challenging for Josh Row after his father Greg suffered a heart attack during SxS practice on Friday. Mr. Row is expected to make a full recovery, but he remained in the hospital during Sunday’s races. Despite his thoughts being elsewhere, Josh Row lined up for Sunday’s race. “It was kind of on my mind the whole time, but I went out there and just tried to do my best. I’m looking forward to Peoria and I am hoping to turn things around there,” said Josh Row, who rounded out the top five.
In the Pro-am ATV class, Mike Sloan was on fire as he charged off the starting line and grabbed the holeshot. Sloan stayed on the gas and increased his lead with every lap and clinched his second Pro-am win of the season.
Pro Motorsports’ Matt Hancock got off to a great start as well and kept a good pace. Hancock stayed strong through the rough conditions and claimed a second place finish.
Brian Sirevaag made his first ever appearance on the Pro-am podium this weekend. Sirevaag was in the top five off the start and fell back a bit early in the race, but he stayed on the throttle and worked back up for a third place finish.
Joseph Shafe came up from an eighth place start to finish in the number four spot, while Ty Sanders, who was in second in the first lap, fell back to round out the top five.
Round three of three of the 2015 Rocky Mountain MC World Off-Road Championship Series Presented by Maxxis and Dirt Wheels will head to Canyon MX in Peoria, AZ on February 27-March 1st where Beau Baron will be going for his third straight WORCS Pro ATV win.
