Atascadero, CA (9/7/2021) –CST’s Beau Baron won the Pro ATV race, scored a podium in SXS Pro Stock, and overcame brake issues to finish fifth in SXS Pro Production during the WORCS weekend in Cedar City, UT. The event was held at Three Peaks Oasis.
While the locale was familiar, the track was new to the series and was one of the most technical circuits thus far this season. Featuring 204 turns in the combined off road and motocross track, Baron was in his element.
In Pro ATV,Baron got a second-place start, and pulled off a big jump in the motocross section to take the lead on the first lap. From there, he led every lap for his fifth win of the season. Baron remains the points leader.
“It opened up from single line in the off road in the motocross track, and I had to over jump a tabletop and land on the flat just to make the pass,” said Baron. “My CST Pulse HT tires worked great. They didn’t look worn at all after the race. The Sparks motor got me off to a great start. I knew I had to leave my suspension on the stiff side because the only place I knew I could pass was in the motocross section. So, the Elka suspension worked great.
”In SXS Pro Production, Baron snagged the holeshot and was building a lead when brake issues slowed his charge. Despite having literally zero brakepressure, Baron still finished fifth.
“I got a great start, got in front and started pulling away,” explained Baron. “Then one of my brake lines began to leak and I lost my brakes. So, I had to drive with no brakes and ended up fifth. I played it safe just to get it to the finish line.”
In SXSPro Stock, Baron again took the holeshot,but climbed a rut and went over the berm in the third corner. He made it back on track behind eventual winner Cayden MacCachren and finished second.
“I got a good start and three corners in I screwed it up,” saidBaron. “I funneled in right behind Cayden. The kid was driving awesome. I don’t know if I could have held him off the whole race, but I sure would have liked to have tried!”
WORCS heads next to Glen Helen Raceway in Devore, CA. That race is scheduled forOctober 1-3.
