Olympia, WA – MCR/Maxxis Tires’ Beau Baron checked out on the competition at round seven of the 2010 WORCS series to take the Pro ATV win, while Pro-am teammate David Haagsma took the Pro-am win and wrapped up the Pro-am Championship two rounds early.

Track conditions were rough at Straddleline ORV Park, located in McCleary, WA and a challenging WORCS X section put even the best riders to the test, but MCR/Maxxis Tires’ Beau Baron had no trouble conquering the track and the rest of the competition. Baron’s great weekend started off with him taking the win in Friday evening’s WORCS X race, and his winning streak would continue from there.


In Sunday’s Pro main event, Baron shot off the line in the number two spot behind Dustin Nelson and at the midway point of the first lap, Baron took over the lead and laid down some incredibly fast lap times, recording the fastest lap of the race in lap three with a time of 10:47.617. Baron continued to push hard for the entire race and when it was all said and done, he would top the podium and close in on the points lead. “I felt really great out there and my quad was running awesome. I got around Dustin early in the race and just put the hammer down. I wanted to get as much distance as I could between me and everyone else,” said Baron, who is now only two points off the championship points lead.

The ever-consistent Josh Row again put on a strong performance as he went head to head with Pro GNCC racer Johnny Gallagher. Row would battle Gallagher for several laps before he was able to pull away and take a solid sixth place finish. Row’s solid performances this season have his sitting in the number three spot in the Pro points chase.

Team Manager, Mike Cafro was looking good early in the race, but would suffer an injury to his wrist, which ended his race after just eight laps. Luckily, his injury is not serious and Cafro plans on racing again at round eight. “I hurt my wrist and that made things pretty tough for me. I didn’t want to risk crashing or making it worse, so I just pulled off,” Cafro explained.

In the Pro-am ranks, David Haagsma, who has been the dominating force all season in his class, put on a stellar performance as he took the Pro-am win and wrapped up the Pro-am Championship two rounds early. “We’re pretty excited that David wrapped up the championship like this. He did exactly what we wanted him to do and he got the job done. Our goal this year is to get three number one plates, and this is the first one of the season,” said Mike Cafro.

In the Women’s A class, Julie Russell claimed another victory as she went on to take her sixth straight win of the season. If Russell is able to win again at round eight she will wrap up the Women’s A championship one round early. “We’re really happy with Julie’s performance and very stoked that she could possibly wrap up her championship at Glen Helen,” Cafro stated.

Round number eight of the 2010 WORCS series will be held at Glen Helen Raceway on September 24th – 26th, where Beau Baron will try to take over the Pro points lead and defend his number one plate, while Julie Russell will be looking to bring home another championship for the team.
