BDR's Larry Heidler Sand Hollow WORCS Race Report
WORCS Pro SxS Racer Larry Heidler Race Report

Moreno Valley, CA (5/2/2018) – BDR Motorsports / Polaris’ Larry Heidler overcame a near crash to finish 12th in the WORCS Series race at Sand Hollow State Park in Hurricane, UT. Heidler was driving a Polaris RZR XP1000 Turbo in the Pro class.

The race was held in the notoriously rough dunes at Sand Hollow. This year’s course was changed to allow for more passing opportunities and officials added rock sections. In addition, the course featured deep sand whoops and even an asphalt road section.

Heidler snagged his second consecutive holeshot and was immediately charging. After losing a position, he was back on it, but hit a hard kicker coming of the asphalt section of the course and nearly crashed. He drove through it, overcame a broken shifter and finished.

“My GBC Tires got me off to a great start,” said Heidler. “The course was really rocky and I charged as hard as I could. We hit a bad kicker on the second lap and almost wadded, but I stayed in the gas and was full power tires off the ground. I hit hard and the Super ATV Axles did their job. Any other axle would have broken.”

Heidler was running Tire Blocks in his GBC Dirt Commanders and was happy to have them. Despite the sharp rocks causing three of his tires to lose pressure, he still finished the race. He relied on great power provided by Queen and his Fox Shocks to soak up the bumps.

“Anyone not running Tire Blocks out there definitely didn’t make it to the finish,” said Heidler. “Queen has done some work on the engine that gave me a lot more power. Without the Fox Shocks, I probably wouldn’t have any teeth left because that course was just brutally rough.”

Heidler heads to Cedar City, UT for the next race on the WORCS schedule. Heidler made his debut in a turbo car there last season and looks forward to coming back with more experience under his belt.

“I’m excited for Cedar City,” said Heidler. “It’s a fun track and I have lot more seat time in the turbo car. I love the big motocross section on the inside. Prep is already underway.”

Heidler will be back in action, driving with Ryan Piplic in the Silver State 300 Best in the Desert race May 3-6. He’ll then head to Iron Mine Race Park in Cedar City, UT for the next round of WORCS competition May 25-27.
