David Haagsma Takes UTV Pro Win, Beau Baron Wins Pro ATV

Bakersfield, CA (6/30/2015) - Maxxis / H&M Motorsports racers Beau Baron and David Haagsma dominated the ATV and UTV races Saturday during Round 4 of the STI Quad X Racing Series at Glen Helen. Haagsma clinched the UTV Pro Championship with his fourth straight win.

The duo were unstoppable in the ATV race, with Baron finishing first with a sweep of both moto wins and Haagsma netting second to pad his points lead. “My Maxxis Tires helped me get off the line really well today,” said Baron. “I got a good jump, rode smart, tried to make it difficult to pass, and I pulled it off. David was pushing really hard in the second moto, but he made a mistake and it pretty much cost him the race. The Elka shocks were dialed in perfectly. My bike was awesome all day.”

Haagsma’s second-place finish virtually guarantees him his third STI Quad X Open Pro ATV title with a seventeen point lead heading into the final round. “Maxxis and Elka Suspension have made this bike nearly perfect all season,” said Haagsma. “Beau always does well here, and I’m always looking for a good race. It’s good to keep getting points, and staying ahead. We’re pretty secure going into the final event, so I’m hoping to just relax in the last race and battle it out with Beau.”

“The Maxxis Tires made all the difference today,” said Haagsma, whose consistency paid off in both motos. “I got second at the start of the first moto and fell back to third. By the time I got into second, first was out of reach, and it came down to the second moto. I got an inside line at the start of the second moto. I got second on the first lap in one of the split lanes. Cody (Bradbury) fell off at the midpoint, and I capitalized on it.”

Baron took out his wife’s bone stock Polaris RZR XP 1000 UTV for the event, and he battled his way to a top three overall finish. “I was just trying to hang with these guys,” said Baron, who finished third in both motos. “I’m pretty timid in the stock RZR, but it is amazing how well they perform.”
