CST’s Beau Baron Takes WORCS Pro Stock SXS Win

Atascadero, CA (3/21/2018) - CST’s Beau Baron won the SXS Pro Stock race during the WORCS racing weekend at Lake Havasu City, AZ. Baron also competed in the SXS Pro Turbo and Pro ATV races.

Lake Havasu’s traditionally rough track took its toll among the competitors. The tight and rocky course had few passing opportunities, so Baron made quick work getting to the front in the Pro Stock race. Once there, he held strong to score the victory and take the points lead.

“I got a second-place start behind Matt Hancock and there was a rhythm section along the back straightaway,” said Baron. “We came into that last one, he checked up and I never lifted so I launched half a car length in front of him and took off in the lead.”

Dealing with the loose and sandy surface is always difficult. To ensure maximum grip, Baron selected CST’s Stag tires. His launch into the lead demonstrated just how well they hooked up.

“I used the CST Stag with more tread spacing for the sand,” said Baron. “They made a huge difference. These Stags worked awesome and I’m going to use them in Sand Hollow.”

In the Pro SXS race, Baron had bad luck early. After pitting for mechanical issues on the first lap, he immediately began gaining ground, but a driveline issue took him out of contention on the final lap. He recovered to finish seventh and save important championship points.

Bad luck also struck in the Pro ATV race. Baron took the lead, but a rock wedged into the sprocket on his Honda and the chain slipped off. He spent most of the race repairing his ride, and finished fifth.

Baron hasn’t had the best of luck in the past at Lake Havasu and he looks to step it up when the series heads to Utah in April. Ever the competitor, Baron is healthy and ready to bounce back.

“It was a rough weekend,” explained Baron. “I had issues in the turbo class, but I did get a finish. My quad weekend was tough, too. I guess it’s OK. I came away healthy. I’ll have to step it up at Sand Hollow because I don’t want these kids to get away from me.”

Baron will return to WORCS competition when the series heads to Sand Hollow State Park in Hurricane, UT April 27-29.
