Granlund only entered Saturday’s Pro race to get a better look at the track prior to the Pro Stock race. Due to wicked weather on Friday, practice was canceled. After the initial start was waived off, Granlund was quick off the line on the restart and went on to finish second.

“I pretty much went out to the see the track for the Pro Stock race tomorrow and I wanted to get a top-20 finish so I could sign up early for the Orleans race,” said Granlund. “I ran GBC’s Grim Reaper tires and my car ran well off the line. I like GBC because they have so many different tires and it makes it easy to get the right tire for the conditions. Off the line my Weller exhaust and Tuned ignition helped a lot. It was rough and choppy, but the Fox shocks were working so well.”

In Sunday’s Pro Stock race, Granlund finished out the weekend by running a strong third for the entire race. Granlund’s third consecutive podium puts him first in points.

“It’s been a good weekend and a great start to the year,” said Granlund. “Today I went out and got a decent start. It was kind of dusty, and I was getting roosted a bit, so I backed off a little. Then I caught back up, I hit a really bad kicker and I had a really scary moment. I got a love tap from behind and I started driving defensively. The car was working great. Putting the Yamaha up on the podium is always a good thing.”

After winning both motos in a DIRT Series race last weekend, Granlund brought his car to STV Motorsports to prep for the WORCS weekend. With a super competitive car already, the team merely made minor tweaks on the Yamaha.

“Andrei from STV has been great,” said Granlund. “We just had the car in there last week. The main thing we’re doing now is cutting weight. We’re just fine-tuning a great product in this Yamaha.”
