Holz Racing’s Shelby Anderson Takes Pro SXS Podium
Holz Racing's The Orleans Casino WORCS SXS Race Report

Lynden, WA (4/7/2017) - Shelby Anderson finished third in the WORCS SXS Pro Stock race at The Orleans Casino in Las Vegas and made history in the process. Driving a Holz Racing Polaris, Anderson became the second woman in as many races to finish on a WORCS Pro SxS Podium. Sierra Romo became the first woman to win a Pro podium, in the last race, also driving a Holz Polaris.

Anderson started on the second row on the tough track. She ran a strong pace during the event, let carnage take its toll, made some passes, and recorded her first podium of the season. Anderson is now third in Pro Stock points in her first full year of competition.

“I’ve had some pretty bad luck, so pulling off a third in my first year in Pro is probably more than I could have asked for,” said Anderson. “Knowing that I caught all of these guys, I was happy to get this. It’s pretty cool how Sierra and I are showing how we can run with these Pro drivers, especially considering this is our first year.”

The race was staged in the arena and parking lots surrounding the Casino. Combining asphalt, dirt, logs, sand and even a big air jump, the track took out many competitors’ cars, but Anderson’s Polaris held up perfectly.

“The Holz stuff always holds up,” said Anderson. “This was definitely one of the roughest tracks we’ve run. With all of the asphalt turns, the logs, my car hooked up great. The Holz car combined with Walker Evans Shocks and GBC Tires held up so well. I couldn’t have asked for a stronger car.”

Beau Baron finished second in the Pro SXS race. His Holz car was on rails in the event, handing him his first Pro podium of the season.

“The chassis and the setup are awesome,” said Baron. “Mark does a great job making these cars bulletproof. Polaris makes a good car to start with and Mark makes it even better.”

Though unrelated mechanical issues slowed his charge in both Pro and Pro Stock, Cody Bradbury was the only SXS driver who consistently hit the big double jump. Bradbury stuck the landing every time.

“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 ones 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.”
