Moreno Valley, CA (9/13/2017)
- BDR Motorsports’ Larry Heidler he made significant
progress in the development of his Polaris
RZR Turbo during the SXS Pro race at Glen
Helen Raceway in Devore, CA. The event was
round 10 of the 2017 WORCS Series.
Heidler was quickly up to fourth and charged
into third at the start of the race. Coming
out of the wash section, his car experienced
a false neutral. After spending time diagnosing
the problem, Heidler rejoined the field.
Heidler had his Polaris RZR wrapped
over the summer by AVI Wraps with a
chameleon gold to green color changing
“I got a good jump off the line and I was
sitting fourth until the first uphill,” said
Heidler. “I passed Hancock on the uphill with
the power of the turbo. Benchmark Performance
came on board recently and they made my car
really come alive. I was chasing down Cody
and Piplic in the wash section. Coming out,
the car landed funny and my power steering
was acting up. I hit a switch to reset my
power steering and took off again. I got three
quarters of the way through the first lap
and the car stopped. I thought I might have
broken a belt or had a transmission problem,
but I found out I had a false neutral.”
Heidler ran hard from there, but the lost
time took its toll and he finished 13th. What
the results didn’t show was the progress he’s
made with both power and his Fox shocks.
“My results really didn’t show how well the
car did today,” said Heidler. “My Fox shocks
were working awesome. We keep pushing every
round to make the car better and we really
hit a gold mine this weekend.”
Motorsports’ Larry Heidler finished
13th at Glen Helen
Heidler, who lives in Southern California
and works in the Bay Area, was in typical
thrash mode to get ready for the race. He
installed a new set of Fox shocks and received
setup information via Fox’s customer service.
The numbers worked.
“I spent some time on the phone with Dustin
at Fox on Friday and we made some major breakthroughs
on my suspension,” said Heidler. “The car
handled awesome. We had a brand new set of
shocks. We went out in unclassified and I
realized the suspension was so much better.”
Heidler borrowed a car from Darrell Patton
and raced in the Pro Stock race on Saturday.
He used the event as a test session to find
the right lines around the challenging track.
“It was more to get out and see the track
to understand the lines better,” said Heidler.
“Some of these guys are running two classes
and they’re getting a lot more track time
than I am. I was trying to do the same.”
Heidler’s car performed well and it also
looked the part. He unveiled a new “chameleon”
wrap courtesy of AVI Wraps.
“I wanted to have something no one else had
out here and AVI Wraps delivered,” said Heidler.
“That thing is definitely one of a kind. It’s
like a chameleon. It goes from gold to green
and green to gold depending on how you look
at it. I think it looks pretty good.”
Heilder next heads to the WORCS season finale
October 6-8. The race will be held at Adelanto
