A at Round 2 of the WORCS Series
On Saturday, Sanders charged his way through
the pack to take battle for the lead when
he flipped his Honda after colliding with
another competitor during the Open A race.
Despite having to flip his ATV back onto its
wheels, he held onto the lead and won by over
“He got underneath my nerf bar and ended
up flipping us both on our heads,” said Sanders.
“I got back upright, took off and managed
to stay in first place. We finished first
overall and first in class.
Still hurting from Saturday’s crash, Sanders
ripped off the holeshot in the Pro Am race
and led several laps before fading toward
the end. He finished fourth.
“The Art Works engine started on the first
kick and we had a great start,” said Sanders.
“I led for quite a while, but my back and
neck were injured in the crash on Saturday
and they started stiffening up. I was doing
my best to breath after my back started hurting.
We didn’t get the finish we wanted, but at
this point we’re salvaging points. We stayed
in the top three in points so we’ll go to
Taft and get it back on the box.”
Sanders results were indicative of just how
competitive Gold Speed Tires are. He was also
pleased with the extra horsepower provided
by Art Works.
Works' Ty Sanders grabbed the Holeshot
in the Pro-Am class
“The Gold Speed tires got me a holeshot in
Pro Am and helped me stay at the front in
Open A,” said Sanders. “The Art Works engine
kept us on top in both races. The power was
amazing on both bikes. They helped us keep
on top of the deep stuff throughout the weekend.”
Sanders will be back in action as the WORCS
series next heads to Taft, CA February 17-19.
