Nuevo, CA (4/7/2017) - Polaris’
Cody Bradbury experienced a bad luck weekend,
but came out in good points position after
the WORCS SXS races at The Orleans Casino
and Arena in Las Vegas. Bradbury now sits
second in Pro SXS points and fourth in Pro
The event featured a unique short course
that was run inside the arena and in the parking
lots surrounding the casino. With dirt, asphalt,
a log section and a sand pit, it definitely
threw a curve ball at all of the competitors.
The real highlight was a big air double leading
out of the arena section and Bradbury was
one of the few competitors that hit it, and
stuck the landing, every time.

In the Pro UTV race, Bradbury, who was running
his non-turbo car, was in contention early
when he hit a block that was dislodged during
a crash. He cut down a tire, pitted and quickly
tried to make up time, especially on the big
double. He finished 12th.
“I got back going and hammered as hard as
I could,” said Bradbury. “I was doing my best
to make up time, so I came around and just
pinned it going into the jump and hoped for
the best. I did a few times and then I lost
front-wheel drive. I got some points, but
it was a little bit of a bummer day.”
In Pro Stock, Bradbury avoided early carnage
that took out several competitors on the first
lap. While battling with another driver, they
touched wheels and Bradbury lost an axle.
He battled back to finish ninth.

“The asphalt was really slippery, I was in
two-wheel drive and I spun out a few times,”
said Bradbury. “It was just one of those days
when points were key. Hopefully, I can get
the win both classes like I did last year
at Sand Hollow. I’m not too far back in points,
and I’m looking forward to getting luck back
on my side.”
Bradbury credited his Holz-built Polaris
RZRs and a special set of Walker Evans Shocks
for allowing him to be the only competitor
to consistently stick the double.
“I ran some shorter shocks this weekend from
Walker Evans and those, combined with the
Holz stuff, made it so I was one of the only
SXS drivers getting the double,” said Bradbury.
“A couple people tried it, but I was getting
it. The Walker Evans shocks soaked it up just
fine. I couldn’t do this without Polaris.
They make an awesome car. You’re going to
have parts fail now and again. Hopefully,
I’ve got that out of my system and we’re looking
forward to some good finishes going forward.”
Bradbury will be back in action and ready
to repeat his double win as the WORCS series
next heads to Sand Hollow State Park in Hurricane,
UT April 21-23.
