Primm, NV (2/2/2016) – CST’s Beau Baron won the Pro ATV race at Round 2 of the WORCS Championship at Buffalo Bill’s Casino and Resort. Unfortunately, bad luck struck in side by side competition as driveline problems sidelined Baron in both the Pro and Pro Unlimited races.

In the ATV Pro race, Baron inherited the lead for good when former teammate David Haagsma broke on the final lap. The victory was anything but easy. Baron drove from the back of the pack at the start and picked his way through the field to end up second as the white flag waved.

I ended up fifth off the start,” – said Baron. “Dead engine starts get me sometimes. I battled with Collins for a while, then it was Sloan and Robbie. I wasn’t going to get near David, but sometimes things happen. This is what we work hard for and this is what we want.”

In true show of sportsmanship, Baron actually offered to tow Haagsma in on the final lap.

I pulled over and offered to tow him in,” – explained Baron. “He said ‘No. Go ahead.’ “I like to go out there and win heads up. It’s a shame that happened. I’m bummed. This is a good thing for my points, but I don’t like to win this way.

Baron apparently inherited some of Haagsma’s bad luck in the side by side races. He experienced several driveline failures and didn’t finish the Pro Unlimited race. In the Pro race, he actually drove around in reverse after the forward gears on his machine stopped working and finished 15th, securing important points.


Baron will look for excellence as WORCS heads to Las Vegas February 26-28 for Round 2 of the championship.
