      Mitch Guthrie and Mitch Guthrie Jr. piloted their Magnum Off-Road Racing RZR XP 1000 to victory at the 2014 King of the Hammers – one of the toughest off-road races in the world. The victory was the elder Guthrie’s fifth at the event.

      Twenty-six UTVs took the line to try to conquer The Hammer. Branden Sims, in his RZR, grabbed the early lead with the rest of the field in hot pursuit. By the end of lap 1, Guthrie had the lead but lost it due to a steering issue that needed repair. Guthrie’s racing prowess and ability to tame the nasty rock sections of the race saw him, once again, come away the Pro Class winner with Sims following in second. John Duckworth, also in a RZR, won the Sportsman Class.

        GBC Motorsports supported riders competed in Round 6 of WORCS Racing this past weekend, earning a pair of class victories. Weather was favorable out at Pala Raceway, however the rough track proved difficult for many racers both in the SXS classes as well as the ATV classes.

        Mitch Guthrie topped the SXS 1000 class at WORCS Round 6.

        RJ Anderson got off to a great start on his GBC Dirt Commanders, converting a second place start off the line into a solid lead throughout the race. Mechanical issues late in the race dropped Anderson to an 11th place finish. Coming off of back-to-back wins, Anderson holds onto the sixth spot in the season standings.

          GBC Motorsports racers RJ Anderson and Mitch Guthrie Jr. won their respective classes at WORCS Round 5.

          With temperatures breaking into triple digits, WORCS Racing descended on the small town of Taft, Calif. RJ Anderson took the holeshot and the early lead in the hotly contested SXS Pro class, as fellow GBC racers James Hill and Tommy Scranton followed behind in third and fourth. Anderson seems to be back to form as he controlled the entire race and finished with his second straight victory aboard his GBC Dirt Commanders.

          Despite running in the top five for most of the race, last-lap mechanical issues dropped both James Hill to 12th place and Scranton to 16th on the day. Tim Wyatt finished ninth and Wesley Barker finished 14th.
