CST Tires
CST’s Baron & Anderson Make Strong Start to Season

Atascadero, CA (2/19/2018) - CST’s Beau Baron and Mitch Anderson kicked off the 2018 WORCS racing season with strong runs in the SXS, ATV and Motorcycle classes during the season opener at The Orleans Arena in Las Vegas. Baron finished second in the Pro ATV race and scored a fifth-place finish in SXS Pro Stock. Anderson finished second in the Pro 2 Motorcycle event.

The races were held on a sprawling, but tight course set up in the arena and the parking lots surrounding the venue. The track featured asphalt and dirt sections, as well as tire jumps, logs and motocross-style doubles and triples.

In the Pro ATV race, Baron finished second after a thrilling battle with Robbie Mitchell. Despite having several opportunities to crash Mitchell for the victory, Baron showed exemplary sportsmanship and took home the runner-up trophy.

“I wanted to pass him clean,” said Baron. “I had him passed in two different places and he cut over on me and I don’t want to kill the guy. The CST Tires were awesome. They didn’t wear down and they worked great. Sparks built such a bitchin’ motor. My quad rips. Hats off to Elka Suspension and Roll Design.”

In SXS Pro Stock, Baron found some redemption from difficulties in the Pro Production race to score a fifth-place finish. Baron, who is likely the hardest working man in off-road racing, thrashed to get ready to the event and his preparation showed.

“I had some serious issues in the Pro class, but the Stock class was good,” said Baron. “We were on the fourth row and worked my way into the top five and stayed there. To come out without breaking a car, I’m pretty happy. I’ve been working until midnight for the last couple of weeks to get everything ready. It’s gnarly for a one-man racing crew.”

Anderson rode his CST Honda to start the Pro 2 Motorcycle season with a second-place finish. Tires proved to be more important than ever on the distinctive racing surface and CST delivered.

“I had a decent start, made a few quick passes on the first lap, but unfortunately someone came over on me in the matrix and got stuck,” said Anderson. “Second is a good way to start the season. The CST Tires were great today. It was a tricky course, in and out of the arena, rocks, logs and pavement. The tires worked great all day.”

Anderson and Baron understand just how important CST Tires is to their program. The pair—whether in Big6 or WORCS—are putting a huge effort into delivering results.

“CST has done so much for us,” said Baron. “We’re just trying to return the favor with results.”

Baron and Anderson will be ready for action as the WORCS Series next heads to Canyon MX in Peoria, AZ February 23-25.
