First race for Yamaha's new Sport UTV
Yamaha unveiled its new YXZ1000R Sport UTV to much fanfare on Sept. 1. Just four weeks later the YXZ1000R competed in its first race; WORCS Round 8 at Glen Helen Raceway in Devore, Calif.
On his Facebook page, Nelson noted that both his drivetrain and suspension were bone stock. He also talked about using the manual transmission in a race situation.
“I raced for an hour today on a track with very tight sections and never even had the fear of stalling,” Nelson said.
The next and final round of the 2015 WORCS series takes place Oct. 16-18 in Primm, Nev.
