H&M Motorsports’ David Haagsma WORCS Pro UTV Race Report

Bakersfield, CA (3/21/2018) - H&M Motorsports’ David Haagsma grabbed the holeshot and dominated the WORCS SXS Pro Turbo race in Lake Havasu City, AZ. Driving the 51FIFTY Polaris RZR XP Turbo, Haagsma scored his first win of the season and took the SXS Pro Production points lead.

With Havasu’s typical tight, technical, and rocky course, Haagsma knew track position was going to be key. After taking the holeshot, he immediately began checking out and held on for the dominant win. After just missing the victory and finishing second in the last race, the win came at a perfect time and extends his points lead.

“The Sparks Engine and Maxxis Tires gave me another good jump, just like last week,” said Haagsma. “I had a big gap toward the middle of the race, but my crew told me on the pit board that Bradbury was catching me on time. So I did two quick laps and was able to win it. “

With Maxxis Tires with Tire Blocks and Fox Shocks on his Polaris, Haagsma made navigating the course look easy. The tight track made passing nearly impossible, so getting in front and staying there was the key to victory.

“The course was a lot of fun,” said Haagsma. “It was really tight, but the car worked really well there. The suspension worked great. Overall, we had a really good weekend with really good weather, and great results.”

The rocks were especially tough on other competitors. Many top drivers fell out with broken wheels. Haagsma’s Method wheels, however, came out scratched up, but totally intact.

“Ever since we’ve switched to Method, we haven’t had any wheel-related issues,” said Haagsma. “This course is rocky, so when you come into a corner your wheels just smash into the rocks. They got scratched up, but they held up. The Maxxis Tires with Tire Blocks also helped. I always know I won’t have tire or wheel issues.”

Haagsma is driving a Polaris RZR XP Turbo he built last year, but raced for the first time in round one. With more power, it took a few races for Haagsma to get it completely dialed in.

“We’ve had great luck with the Polaris RZR Turbo,” said Haagsma. “It took me a little time to get used to it because it is so much faster than my NA car. It has a little more suspension and a lot more power. I’m really enjoying racing now and we’re getting good results.”

Haagsma is now well on his way to a third WORCS championship and will look for another dominant run at the next race, being held at Sand Hollow State Park in Hurricane, UT April 27-29.
