Maxxis’ Baron Wins WORCS ATV Round 78/08/2012
With his fourth win of the season, Beau Baron holds a solid lead in the race for the WORCS ATV championship as the series heads into its final round next month. The Team Maxxis H&M rider took the Pro victory at Round 7, held August 4 in Anza, California.
After a strong second-place start, Baron took the lead in Lap 2. Despite battling temperatures in the 90s and a dusty track, he managed to increase his lead during the laps that followed. “It was so hot and dusty, I couldn’t see anything and was just slamming all the square edges,” said Baron. “Our tires lasted so good compared to other tires out there that were just smoked.” Baron is 18 points ahead of the second-place rider in the points race.
Teammate David Haagsma took fourth place at Round 7 and is third in points. Both riders trust the Razr Xc rear and Razr2 front tire combo for these last crucial races.
In the SxS Production 1000 race, Baron remains third in points after finishing third for the weekend on Vipr tires. “In UTV, I got third after a bad start. Another driver came into me, and I was lucky I didn’t flip. I eventually caught up to third and had some chances to pass but couldn’t make it happen,” he said. Maxxis driver Ryan Piplic finished second for the day and remains second in points.
Maxxis congratulates Beau Baron on his victory and thanks David Haagsma for his fine performance.
