Bulloch Won the Short Course Production
1000 Class at the BITD UTV World Championship
The event featured the largest turnout of
UTVs in BITD history, with over 300 entries.
The three-lap short course race was run on
the 16-mile long course in order to make room
for the record number of entries. Despite
rough track conditions and lack of visibility,
Bulloch dominated in the race.
“We came out here and threw down with the
best guys in the world,” said Bulloch. “We’ve
been coming out here for a couple of years
now and it’s nice to get some good results.”
Bulloch also overcame a blown belt early
in the contest, and drove a perfect race in
his RZR. He thanked his wife, with whom he
celebrated 15 years of marriage the Thursday
before the event.

“We never got a flat; the Maxxis Tires and
Tireblocks were the right combination,” said
Bulloch. “Running with those turbo guys definitely
gets challenging. I had to lean on it hard
and even with the blown belt, I got the win.
I have to thank HCR. Their arms are amazing.
My Walker Evans shocks worked awesome. SLP
clutching kept us up front. I have to thank
my wife, Jody. It was our 15th wedding anniversary
on Thursday, and we only talked for like five
minutes that day.”

Bulloch’s son Skyler celebrated, too, after
winning the 700/800 Class short course race.
The younger Bulloch took the holeshot on the
dead engine start and led every lap of the

“It was a dead start, which I wasn’t ready
for, but I took the holeshot and led the whole
race,” said Skyler Bulloch. “I don’t have
a mirror in my car so I can’t look back so
I just went as hard as I could. The course
was crazy. Half the time I couldn’t see and
the ruts got so deep. I am so excited for
this win because this is the World Championship.”
The Bulloch family has a quick turnaround
as they head for the next WORCS race April
21-23. That event is being held at Sand Hollow
State Park in Hurricane, UT.
