Beau Baron Leads RZR Podium Sweep at WORCS Round 4
WORCS Round 4 returned to Sand Hollow OHV area in Hurricane, Utah, and Polaris Factory Racers Beau Baron and Mitch Guthrie Jr. finished one/two in the Pro Class.
Sand Hollow presents the racers with a different type of terrain from most of the other WORCS races. The six-mile, hour-long course travels through sand and sandstone and is one of the more scenic races in the series.
Polaris Racing/Holz Racing’s Beau Baron grabbed the holeshot in his RZR XP 1000 and raced virtually unchallenged until lapped racers slowed him down, giving Polaris/Guthrie Racing’s Mitch Guthrie Jr., also in a RZR XP 1000, the lead in the final lap. Guthrie, also dealing with the lapped racers, saw Baron regain the lead and steer his RZR XP 1000 to his second win of the season. Guthrie finished a solid second, Nick Thompson, also in a RZR took third; with Polaris Factory Racers RJ Anderson and Ryan Piplic finisging fourth and fifth. Baron currently holds the points lead for the series with Guthrie in second and Anderson in third.
