Rialto, CA (3/22/2018) -
ACE Motorsports drivers Brian Willison and
Laura Cole scored podiums in their respective
SXS classes during the WORCS racing weekend
at Crazy Horse Campground in Lake Havasu City,
AZ. The pair was competing in the doubleheader
weekend, driving Polaris RZRs.
The events were run on Saturday and Sunday
at the rough and rocky Lake Havasu track as
part of the kick off of Spring Break in the
area. Cole was competing in one of the series’
toughest classes, SXS Womens. On Saturday,
she finished second, and she finished third
on Sunday. The two-podium weekend puts here
second in points just a single point out of
“Saturday was a tough race,” explained Cole.
“I pulled off the second place despite some
stiff competition. The track was a lot of
fun, but it was also the roughest I’ve been
on this year. The ruts, rocks, and sand were
tough. My GBC Tires hooked up with the four-wheel
drive on my Polaris and kept me upright in
both races, pulling me through the corners
and the ruts.”
She was particularly happy to have her Walker
Evans Racing shocks dialed in for the event.
While many competitors had issues with the
rough course, Cole said she had relatively
“My car has never felt better,” said Cole.
“It works great in the whoops and the turns.
I was flat in the corners and over the jumps.
The suspension gave me total confidence.”
Also giving her confidence was the support
from her ACE Motorsports team. From the pits
to the track, the team works with many drivers
in the series to make sure they get what they
need when they need it.
“ACE Motorsports has a huge support system,”
said Cole. “The support we get in the pits
from them is phenomenal and we have spotters
all over the track. Having everyone out here
from the team really pushes us to the finish.”
Willison competed both the SXS Production
Turbo and Stock 1000 classes. He finished
second and fifth in the Turbo races, and second
and fourth in the Stock events. Scoring two
podiums on a tough weekend was a nice reward.
“The rocks were tough here,” said Willison.
“I got one caught in my wheel and it grinded
off my brakes. So I had no brakes halfway
through the event, but managed to keep it
together to finish second. I was just one
second behind in Stock 1000 and only four
seconds in Turbo Production.”
Willison was also complimentary of his Walker
Evans Shocks, as well as all of the other
top components on his car. He was also happy
to be competing in Polaris RZRs.
“Both of my Polaris RZRs have never let me
down, and I usually run out of talent before
the car runs out,” said Willison. “Walker
Evans Suspension has helped me out big time
this year. PRP seats and harnesses make me
feel comfortable and safe in the car. I’m
running the GBC Dirt Commanders and they hook
up great and help me in the turns. Tire Blocks
are huge. I got a pinch flat on Sunday and
they saved my race. I had no problems with
my Raceline Wheels. I’m also running the Super
ATV Rhino 2.0 axles and had zero axle issues.
The track was super rough and we were able
to salvage some points. Those points will
definitely help me in the championship.”
Look for Cole and Willison to be back up
front as the WORCS Series next heads to the
picturesque dunes of Sand Hollow State Park
in Hurricane, UT. That race is scheduled for
