Jacob Peter Takes Canyon MX WORCS Win
Absolute Motorsports’ Jacob Peter WORCS Race Report

Canyon Lake, CA (2/25/2018) – Absolute Motorsports’ Jacob Peter backed up his runner-up finish at the season opener with a hard-fought victory in the SXS Youth race at Canyon MX in Peoria, AZ.

The course was completely different from the first round, featuring more traditional off-road and motocross style racing. Peter started fourth in his Polaris RZR 170 and made his way through the field, taking the lead for good on the final lap.

“It was a really challenging race,” said Peter. “Chase would get in front of me and I would get in front of him. We had a great time out there.  This course was a lot different than Vegas. It had a lot of step-ups that we could clear and on some I went full throttle. My car worked great for me. I was able to get around Chase a couple of times.”

After the mid-pack start, Peter had to work hard to make it to the front, and after an intense battle for the lead, Peter hit all of his marks every lap to nab the victory.

“I had to hit my corners as fast as I could to get around them,” said Peter. “I just kept working my way up. On the last lap, I was thinking I could win this race. After I took the lead, I backed it down to save the car.”

Peter said the win was just another sweet spot during a fun weekend. Peter was happy with the way his Polaris RZR performed, as well as his GBC tires, which handled the tough course with ease.

“It was very exciting to get this win,” said Peter. “I love this track. The corners are huge and it’s nice. My GBC Tires worked really well with the all the rocks out there. The car just ran really well today.”

Peter returns to the track as the WORCS Series next heads to Crazy Horse Campground in Lake Havasu City, AZ. The ATV and SXS only event is being held March 16-18.
