Cedar City, UT (5/2/2018)
- Ray Bulloch made history during the WORCS
Pro Stock SXS race, handing Textron Off Road
its first Pro victory in its new Wildcat’s
XX debut. The victory was Bulloch’s first
this season. Skyler Bulloch padded his points
lead in the SXS 1000 Stock class with his
third victory of the season.
The course featured a unique blend of sand
whoops, open dunes, sharp rocks and asphalt
sections and was considered one of the roughest
in recent memory. Bulloch started on the third
row in his new Textron and literally dominated
the race on time.
“These Tusk Terrabite Tires hooked up right
from the start and we never looked back,”
said Bulloch. “There is a lot of hard work
and good people that helped us get this win.
Textron Off Road has been phenomenal to work
with. It’s a company that knows what we’re
doing matters. We’re able to take things we
learn and give it right to the engineers.
The car is amazing. I can’t wait for the public
to get this car and see what it’s all about.”
Bulloch used his characteristic hard charging
driving style to bring home the victory. Despite
the rough nature of the course, the new car
took everything in stride. To say he was pumped
is an understatement.
“This track and I don’t really see eye to
eye,” said Bulloch. “It’s gnarly with all
of the rocks and the bumps and the Textron
Off Road car made the difference. This win
is for all of those hard working people in
Thief River Falls, Minnesota. Those guys have
been through a lot in the last few years.
So to see this culmination of what they’ve
been working for to get their first Pro win
is great experience and something I’ll never
forget. We had to earn this one, but what
Skyler Bulloch pulled the holeshot in the
SXS 1000 Stock race and never looked back.
He won by nearly four minutes. His second
consecutive win, and third this season, puts
him a dominant 21 points, nearly a full race,
ahead of his nearest competitor.
“That course was so rough,” said Skyler Bulloch.
“I went around the outside on the first lap
and I was just moving. Those HCR arms held
together so well and the Tire Blocks definitely
helped. The Walker Evans Suspension helped
smooth out the ride. I smashed so much stuff,
I don’t know how that car held together.”
The Bulloch family will be racing in their
backyard when the series heads to Iron Mine
Race Park in Cedar City, UT for the next round
of competition May 25-27.
