David Haagsma Wins Second Straight Pro UTV WORCS
H&M Motorsports’ David Haagsma WORCS Pro UTV Race Report

Bakersfield, CA (3/23/2017) - H&M Motorsports’ David Haagsma won his second consecutive WORCS Pro SXS race in Lake Havasu City, AZ. Haagsma has now finished on the podium in all four WORCS races and brings his points lead to 19.

With typical rough and hot Lake Havasu conditions, Haagsma used the skills he honed as an ATV racer to dominate the track’s lagoon jump. Driving a naturally aspirated car in a class that allows the higher horsepower turbo cars, Haagsma took the lead late in the race and ran off with the victory.

“The Maxxis Tires and Curtis Sparks engine really hooked up and we led most of the first lap,” said Haagsma. “I decided not to hit the lagoon jump on the first lap and went back to third. I got up to second right away and then battled it out. We went back and forth for most of the races. On the final lap, he took the chicken lane and I followed the lappers through the jump to take the lead.”

While Haagsma has been developing a turbo car all season, his streak is leading him toward continued reliance on his current ride. That move has paid off so far.

“We have a turbo car built, but the more I run the non-turbo, it’s pretty competitive because it doesn’t break,” explained Haagsma. “Everyone with turbos is having issues. The overall dependability of the non-turbo seems to be the way to go.”

Interestingly, Haagsma went into the main with little practice time. “We had some issues in practice; I broke a belt and missed the whole session,” said Haagsma. “The car worked great. This was a great weekend.”

Haagsma’s mechanic Theo Lasardi is pleased with Haagsma’s progress this season. Most teams are happy to get out of Havasu with a finish, so a victory is huge.

“We’re fortunate to have good products on our car and Davie drives so smooth,” said Lasardi. “With the track like this, you have to have a little luck and not break stuff.”

Haagsma will be back in action as the WORCS will next head to a special indoor race at The Orleans in Las Vegas March 31-April 2.
