Las Vegas, NV (5/25/2017) - STV
Motorsports’ Nic Granlund scored his fourth
WORCS SXS Pro Stock Podium of the season,
finishing third at Iron Mine Race Park.
Taking on the challenging Iron Mine Race

track threw at him. With a mix of hard pack,
sand whoops, big and long air jumps, a motocross
track and an endurocross section, Granlund
was quick all weekend.

fourth SXS Pro Stock Podium at Iron
With dusty conditions prevailing at race
time, Granlund drove a smart but competitive
pace. He bicycled his ride once early in the
dust and was moving through the field, ready
to challenge for the lead. While running in
the motocross section, an axle let go and
Granlund fell to third at the finish.
“It was definitely an exciting race,” said
Granlund. “I was just trying not to crash
in the dust; I had a pretty gnarly get off
and almost went over. I was keeping up with
the leader, but on the last lap I broke a
front axle. I slowed down a little and the
car was really squirrely. So here I am with
another podium in a Yamaha.”

early on, including adding its steering rack,
rollcage and other hard parts, STV is now
down to just minor tweaks. The ride has been
competitive all year.
“A shout out to Andrei at STV Motorsports,”
said Granlund. “Michah spent some late nights
prepping the car. We’re just perfecting what
