Atascadero, CA (10/5/2021) –CST’s Beau Baron finished second in the Pro ATV race,and scored his sixth podium in SXS Pro Stock during the WORCS racing weekend at Glen Helen Raceway in Devore, CA.
In Pro ATV, Baron challenged two-time AMA ATV Motocross National Champion Joel Hetrick throughout the hourlong race before finishing second. He used the event as a way to measure his overall fitness. He noted Hetrick was exhausted after the event, while Baron was ready to run the SXS Pro Stock race.“
When we were done, he was just exhausted,” said Baron. “I feel good about that and it made me feel good about my conditioning. Having Joel out here really brought more attention to WORCS and that’s what we need to help the sport grow.”
Hetrick gave Baron his props. Hetrick won the race in his WORCS debut, but he was ever wary of Baron.“Beau was ripping,” said Hetrick. “He was trying to wear me down at the end. He’s a 10-time champ ,so you know he has it figured out.”
In SXS Pro Stock, Baron kept himself in close contention for the championship by finishing third. Baron was driving a brand-new Polaris RZR RS1 in the event with a brand new red and white wrap. It was competitive right out Holz Racing Products’ shop.“
I was so pumped up about the new car,” said Baron. “Though I had some braking issues during the race, it was great to score another podium. We’re looking for that title and it will likely come down to the wire.”
In Pro Production, Baron got a fast start, but immediately got caught up in a crash with a fellow competitor. Though his race was over before it started, he held his head high, remembering that anything can happen in this series.“
It sucks because I may have thrown out the championship at this round ,but that’s racing and I’ve learned to get over it and shoot for next year,” said Baron.
WORCS next heads to Arizona’s Mesquite MX for a Halloween weekend event October 29-31.Beau Baron 2021
