San Marcos, CA (4/27/2017)
- Polaris RZR Factor Racing's Seth Quintero
continued to climb the point standings in
the WORCS SXS 1000 Stock class by finishing
fourth at Sand Hollow State Park in St. George,
UT. The 14-year-old rising star was competing
in round seven of the series.
Quintero got a great start on the tricky
course. While going through the back section
of the course, however, he lost the course
markers and spent time having to backtrack.
Once he got back on track, he climbed back
through the field to finish fourth.
RZR ’s Seth Quintero lost track of the
course, which sent him back to 5th place
in the first lap
“The track was great, and I got to the first
turn pretty quickly,” said Quintero. “I ended
up taking a wrong turn on the course and had
to battle back. In the back section, I was
trying to find a faster line. We went up and
over the dunes and went back into the rocks.
I came back and finished a solid fourth. It
was a fun race. I thought we had a car that
could win, but the fourth-place finish allows
us to gain some points positions. It will
be close, and it will be a good battle to
Quintero’s Polaris RZR XP 1000 was on point
all weekend. The track was rough, featuring
deep sand with buried rocks, hard pack, and
even asphalt. His CageWrx equipped RZR with
Walker Evans Shocks and BFGoodrich tires took
everything in style.
Evans Racing’s Seth Quintero worked
his way up to 4th place by the checkered
flag, which boosted him to just 9 points
out of the championship points lead
“My Polaris RZR worked great today thanks
to Walker Evans and BFGoodrich Tires,” said
Quintero. “I’m fortunate to have CageWrx.
I saw a lot of people have problems with radius
rods, but my CageWrx radius rods held up perfectly.
Hopefully, next time I can avoid taking a
wrong turn and keep up with the leaders.”
Despite competing in an adult class, Quintero
has had a break-out season with three podiums
in seven races. He’s still looking for that
elusive first victory, something he hopes
to remedy at the next race.
“I’m ready for the next race at Cedar City,”
said Quintero. “I’ve ridden that track a lot.
It really suits my style. I like trail riding
and going through the trees. We’re still looking
for that first victory and we’re hoping to
take the points lead.”
Quintero will be seeking that first win as
he heads to Iron Mine Racepark in Cedar City,
UT for the next WORCS race May 19-21.
