CST’s Beau Baron Takes Two Wins,
Mitch Anderson Podiums at Canyon MX WORCS
Atascadero, CA (3/1/2018) - CST’s
Beau Baron won both the SXS Pro and Pro ATV races,
while teammate Mitch Anderson finished third in
the Pro 2 Motorcycle race during the WORCS Series
weekend at Canyon MX in Peoria, AZ. Baron also
finished third in the SXS Pro Stock race.
The races were held on the motocross course and
the rock-strewn dry river valley surrounding it.
In addition, special one-track sections and a
sand wash were added for the motorcycle races.
In the Pro SXS race, Baron was pinched at the
start of the crash-filled race and he had to make
his way through the field. He was in perfect position
on the final lap when the leader’s car slowed,
and he took the win, his first of the season.
He appreciated the longevity and competitiveness
of his CST Dingo tires.
“If you look at the tires, they are in just a
good shape as when I started,” said Baron. “There’s
nothing that will beat them on hard pack. CST
Tires combined with Tire Blocks are the perfect
combination on my SXS and my quad. I’ve been working
a lot with Doug Roll and Elka on the suspension
and we’re getting it like we like it. Matt Hancock
and I are the only ones running them and they
are a force right now.”
In SXS Pro Stock, Baron also had to work his
way up after being forced out in the first turn.
Baron drove through the field to finish third,
just behind second place.
“It was hard to see, there were a lot of rocks,
it was a rough sucker, but it was fun,” said Baron.
“I just drove smart. A couple of guys just made
mistakes and once the track cleared out I got
around a couple of cars. Then I put the hammer
down and started gaining.”
In Pro ATV, Baron is back in the points lead
after winning his first race of the season. Like
he did in the SXS race, he started fifth and ran
a consistent pace to take the lead late and win
“I just tried to stay as smooth as possible and
look ahead because these corners are easy to blow
out here,” said Baron. “I rode my own race and
had a good time. I’m stoked to have my points
Anderson scored a podium in the Pro 2 race under
some of the most difficult conditions during the
weekend. Dodging rocks and fighting the dust,
he took third.
Baron and Anderson next head to Glen Helen Raceway
in Devore, CA for the third round of AMA District
32 Big6 Grand Prix competition. That race is scheduled
for March 3-4.
