Beau Baron Nets Three Podiums During WORCS Taft Round
Honolulu Hills WORCS • Round 4 • Race Report
Atascadero, CA (4/12/2021) – CST’s Beau Baron won the Pro ATV race and finished on the podium in both Pro SXS races during round four of the WORCS Series. The events were held at Honolulu Hills Raceway in Taft, CA.
With dry conditions came dust, so Baron knew starting positions were going to be the difference between winning and eating roost. In Pro ATV race, he outgunned David Haagsma for the lead on the first lap and dominated from there.
“He tried to go inside to try to protect his line and I never lifted and went outside on the berm,” said Baron. “I barely got ahead of him and that was enough for me to get out front and hit my lines in the off road. I was riding well today. I like this place and my quad was running really well. The Elka suspension was great and the bike just ripped. The CSTs came off the concrete amazingly. It was nice having a gate drop because it’s super fair. It’s straight up and it’s fun.”
In SXS Pro Production, Baron started sixth and overcame heavy traffic to make it to second early in the race. From there, he ran a hard pace to finish second.
“Haagsma had a 30-second gap early on that I was able to cutdown toward the end of the race, but he drove great and he knew what he had to do,” said Baron. “I took a second and I’m good with it.”
In SXS Pro Stock, Baron earned his third podium of the weekend. After securing the third spot early in the race driving his Polaris RZR RS1, he held the position throughout.
“Back on the box for the third time and I am pumped about it,” said Baron. “It was so dusty we all got pretty spread out and I just kind of rode around by myself today in third place, but these are good series points to get so I’m happy.”
Baron will return to the front of the WORCS fields when the series holds its next event June 4-6 at Cache Valley MX Park in Preston, ID.
