Rialto, CA (5/02/2018) -
ACE Motorsports drivers Brian Willison and
Laura Cole both had successful runs during
the WORCS Series SXS races at Sand Hollow
State Park in Hurricane, UT. ACE Motorsports
backed driver Randy Nix won his third consecutive
SXS 1000 race. All were driving Polaris RZRs.
The course was changed from season’s past
to allow for more competitive racing. The
return to multi-line competition made for
much more exciting racing. What remained the
same were the rocks, the sand whoops and the
general rough nature of the course.
Cole was competing in both the SXS Women
and SXS Production Turbo 1000 classes. In
the SXS Women’s race, she was well ahead of
the pack when she experienced clutching issues.
She still finished fourth and took the points
lead with just five races left.
“I had a nice lead in the Women’s class,
but the primary clutch stuck and I still managed
to finish fourth,” said Cole. “This is my
first full year racing this series and I’m
just having a blast. The events are fun and
Polaris makes such a great platform for us
In the SXS Production Turbo 1000 race, Cole
scored a third-place finish. The track had
taken a beating prior to the race, making
for a rough and carnage-filled event.
“The track was whooped out, cars flipped
over, but it was a fun race for sure,” said
Cole. “There was carnage all over this track,
but my Ace Motorsports Polaris just kept going.
The car ran great.”
Cole’s GBC Tires with Tire Blocks and Raceline
wheels took a hard beating, but held strong.
“I was shocked at how the GBC Dirt Commanders
just hooked up,” said Cole. “I got a puncture
after hitting a rock, and the Tire Blocks
made for smooth sailing. The Raceline Wheels
took a beating today. I came over a hill at
60, hit a rock poking out and they just held
Her Walker Evans Suspension allowed her stay
hammer down in the whoops sections. “I couldn’t
believe how well the Walker Evans Suspension
soaked up the bumps today,” said Cole. “It
was whooped out and people were bucking all
over the place while I just stayed in the
Willison overcame a myriad issues in the
SXS Production Turbo 1000 class. Clutching
issues, as well as an end-over-end tumble
slowed him. He still managed to finish ninth
and held his third spot in the title chase.
“I was leading from the holeshot when my
primary clutch jammed,” said Willison. “I
got it free and managed to salvage my race
today. The car came to the finish line, I
salvaged some points, and I’m happy. Sand
Hollow got the best of me, and we’ll be back
at it in Cedar City in just a few weeks.”
Nix continued his dominant season in the
SXS 1000 class. His third consecutive victory
allowed him to extend his lead in the championship
to 15 points.
“This is my rookie year running WORCS SXS
and I’m just loving it right now,” said Nix.
“I have to thank ACE Motorsports for all of
their help. I couldn’t do this by myself.”
Cole, Willison and Nix will be back in action
when the WORCS Series heads to Iron Mine Race
Park in Cedar City, UT May 25-27
