Polaris' Cody Bradbury Wins SXS World Finals Overall

Nuevo, CA (1/24/2017) - Polaris’ Cody Bradbury overcame harsh weather, a muddy track and some of the top SXS competition in the country to win the Pro Production SXS World Finals in Primm, NV. The event was the SXS season opener for the WORCS off road series.

The unique event featured a doubleheader race format with a short course event on Saturday, followed by a traditional WORCS off road race on Sunday. Weather was unpredictable during the weekend. Rain canceled qualifying on Friday. Saturday’s race was run under ideal conditions with blue skies and temperatures in the 50s. Sunday’s race was plagued with heavy rain, sleet and frigid temperatures.

In the end, nothing held back Bradbury and his brand new Polaris RZR XP Turbo. He led several laps of the short course race before finishing a close second. Sunday, he ran away with the race, leading every lap. The combined finishes, as well as his fast time, placed him first overall and handed him the $2,500 bonus.

Bradbury was thankful for the extra power afforded by his new #22 Polaris Turbo in Sunday’s race. Bradbury joined Polaris for this season and is running both Pro and Pro Stock in the WORCS series, as well as select Best in the Desert races.

“I was in my 2017 Polaris RZR Turbo and as soon as the boost hit, I was four cars out in front of everyone,” said Bradbury. “I ran the first lap flat out to see how everyone was running. I had a good gap from there and cruised from there. It was rough on Sunday. It was important to get a good start because the track was beat. There were rivers running down the rhythm lanes.”

Bradbury ran a special suspension setup on his RZR in the short course race. Utilizing a shorter travel shock from Walker Evans, he was the man to beat and just lost the lead after the mandated competition caution.

“I tried to run a smooth race and the new Walker Evans shocks I installed helped a lot today,” explained Bradbury. “These shocks were designed with shorter shafts to work specifically with this type of short course. We were able to drive into the corners a little deeper and hold it a little longer.”

Bradbury’s program has grown quite a bit since last season. Along with Polaris and Walker Evans shocks and wheels, he welcomed new title sponsor Wholesale Capital, as well as GBC tires, Grant steering wheels, Gates Belts, DASA exhaust and engine work. Holz Racing built his Polaris.

Bradbury goes into the next round with the points lead. He’s excited to start out the year with a victory and plans to carry that momentum forward.

“The first round always seems to be my Achilles heel,” said Bradbury. “So it would be nice to have the points lead going into round two.”

Bradbury will be back in action and back in front as the WORCS series heads to Honolulu Hills Raceway in Taft, CA February 17-19.
