Rialto, CA (6/01/2018) -
ACE Motorsports drivers Brian Willison and
Laura Cole scored three third-place finishes
during the WORCS Series SXS races at Iron
Mine Race Park in Cedar City, UT. Willison
and Cole were driving Polaris RZRs in the
In Saturday’s SXS 1000 Stock race, Willison
got a great start and turned some of his recent
bad luck around with a podium finish. He moved
to second in points as a result.
“My GBC Tires were hooking up great and my
Walker Evans Velocity shocks helped carry
me over the whoops sections,” said Willison.
“There was a lot of dust out here and fighting
through that and all of the carnage and broken
cars, I was able to get a good finish. I was
railing through these berms and flying through
the whoops section as fast as I could, and
the Super ATV Rhino 2.0 axles held together
Willison changed the setup on his Polaris
for Sunday’s SXS Production Turbo 1000 race
and the move paid off. After finishing third,
he now sits second in points, just nine points
out of the lead.
“I’ve had issues in this class this year,
so we made some big changes to the car,” said
Willison. “I got out there today and finished
third and now I’m only a few points out of
the lead, where I belong.”
In the SXS Womens race, Cole finished third.
Though she dropped to second in the title
chase, with just three points between first
and second, and one of the most competitive
group of women in recent memory, this championship
will come down to the end.
“The Polaris RZR was great,” said Cole. “It
was a crazy combination of racing surfaces
today and my GBC Tires hooked up great in
the dust, mud, and silt. It got pretty whooped
out during the last two laps, but my Walker
Evans suspension just pushed through. I have
the complete Super ATV suspension from my
arms to my axles. I’ve had no failures at
all. I am running the same setup from last
year and it’s still going strong.”
WORCS now heads into its annual summer break.
Willison and Cole will use the time to regroup,
bring on some new sponsors, and get ready
to return to racing in September.
“I’m excited about the break and I’m happy
about the way we’re sitting in points right
now,” said Willison. “It will be nice to get
the cars back together, do some more testing,
and look forward to Glen Helen. Gatorwraps
will be wrapping our cars and K1 will be doing
our race suites during the break.”
Cole and Willison will return to racing after
the summer break when WORCS heads to Glen
Helen Raceway in Devore, CA. That race is
scheduled for September 14-16.
