51Fifty's David Haagsma Takes Sand Hollow Podium
H&M Motorsports’ David Haagsma WORCS Pro UTV Race Report

Bakersfield, CA (5/2/2018) - H&M Motorsports’ David Haagsma finished third in the Pro SXS portion of the WORCS Series race at Sand Hollow State Park in Hurricane, UT. Haagsma’s third consecutive podium puts him 12 points ahead in the title chase with just five races left in the season.

Sand Hollow’s course was significantly modified this year to allow for more passing opportunities. The course featured a wide array of terrain, from wide open sand, to deep whoops, sharp rocks and even asphalt sections. The changes handed many different line choices to the competitors.

“The Sparks engine and Maxxis tires got me off to a great start,” said Haagsma. “I had some good battles, and the car worked great. I just didn’t have the confidence in the rocks and the big whoops. The course was really fast and technical. It was pretty gnarly and one of the best battles in a while. I always like coming here. I just made some bad line choices.”

With high winds during the race, visibility became an issue on several sections of the track. Haagsma was pleased that he had Maxxis tires with Tire Blocks on his Polaris, especially in the rocks.

“There were sharp rocks everywhere and they’re hard to avoid in the dust, but I had the confidence my tires would hold up and they did,” said Haagsma. “The car just rips. We just put a tuner and an exhaust from Sparks and it’s faster than any other car out there. It was fun and competitive and the car worked great.”

Haagsma is now well on his way to a third WORCS championship. The 12-point gap is key because wins count for 25 points, while consistency usually wins out. He will next head to Cedar City, UT and Iron Mine Race Park for the next race. That race is scheduled for May 25-27.
