Laura Cole Takes Women's WORCS SXS Points Lead
ACE Motorsports Team WORCS UTV Race Report

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 to race.”

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 together.”

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 throttle.”

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
