Larry Heidler Debuts New Polaris RZR WORCS Opener
WORCS Pro SxS Racer Larry Heidler Race Report

Moreno Valley, CA (2/20/2018) – BDR Motorsports' Larry Heidler unveiled a new Polaris RZR and finished 11th in the Pro SXS race during the WORCS season opener at The Orleans Arena in Las Vegas. With new backing from Polaris, Heidler is running his second full season in WORCS after a competitive rookie campaign in 2017.

Heidler actually nearly missed the opener when an unexpected illness landed his wife in the hospital. Despite no testing time, the new RZR XP Turbo was competitive right from the start

“I didn’t have a lot of time to set up for the track and only showed up 20 minutes before the Unclassified race,” said Heidler. “It was kind of a down weekend because my wife wasn’t with me. It definitely took its toll mentally.”

The course was set up in the arena and the parking lots surrounding the facility. With a mix of dirt and asphalt racing surfaces, as well as jumps, logs and tire sections, the track was tight and challenging. With a new set of Fox Shocks and GBC Tires, Heidler said he felt comfortable in the car.

“I went with the new GBC Terra Masters for the first round and they hooked up good in the asphalt and it pulled hard in the dirt,” said Heidler. “That will be a good tire for this year. Fox sent me a brand new set of shocks and they were set up perfectly for the course.”

For the first time in his career, Heidler is starting out the season with a brand new car, “Polaris support has been a huge help for my program,” said Heidler. “I got a 2018 Polaris RZR XP Turbo just before Thanksgiving and we worked hard to get it ready for the first round. The car turned out great. Mark Holz is one of the best in the business. I’m running running Holz A-arms, trailing arms, swaybars and radius rods and we had no problems. I feel a lot more comfortable in my car.”

Heidler next heads for a more traditional WORCS venue in Peoria, AZ. The race will combine desert and motocross style racing. Heidler is looking forward to showing his new car’s competitiveness.

“This will be my first visit to the track,” said Heidler. “We’ll show up, get the car set up and let the race come to us. It will be nice to get back out into the desert and show what this Polaris is really capable of. I couldn’t be happier with how my car is set up right now.”

The next round of WORCS competition is scheduled for February 23-25 at Canyon MX in Peoria, AZ.
