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.
Racing's Shelby Anderson became the
second straight women to score a WORCS
Pro SXS Stock Podium in back to back
rounds to make WORCS Racing History
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.”

3rd in Pro SXS Stock & she rounded
out the top five in the Pro SXS class
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.
Racing's Beau Baron scored his first
WORCS Pro SXS Podium of the season in
“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.”

2nd in the WORCS Pro SXS Points Championship
