Tempe, AZ (2/13/2018) -
Pro Motorsports’ Matt Hancock started out
the WORCS Series season with consistent finishes
in the Pro SXS classes. The season opening
event was held at The Orleans Arena in Las
The races were held in and around the arena
on the dirt surfaces inside and in the parking
lots, as well as asphalt sections. The track
also featured big air jumps inside the arena,
as well as logs and tire jumps.
Motorsports’ Matt Hancock finished 7th
in the WORCS Pro Stock
While the results don’t necessarily show
it on paper, Hancock had speed and longevity
in the SXS Pro and Pro Stock races. His best
finish was seventh in Pro Stock.
“I felt really competitive today,” said Hancock.
“Sparks Performance Products and Curtis Sparks
have my clutches really dialed in during the
Pro Stock race. The stock car ripped and I
had a blast.”
Hancock’s Polaris RZRs had different looks
to start out the season. With the wrap going
from red to blue, Hancock put in the effort,
didn’t break and will be ready when the series
heads to more traditional venues.
“We changed from red to blue; it’s something
different and I like it,” said Hancock. “I
didn’t have quite the weekend I wanted, but
I didn’t break and I didn’t have problems.
So onto the next one and we’ll go make some
With both dirt and asphalt racing surfaces,
getting traction was an issue for many competitors.
Hancock said his Maxxis Big Horn 2.0 tires
were up to the challenge and he had great
traction everywhere, especially on the pavement.
“The Maxxis tires were hooking up great on
the pavement,” said Hancock. “These aren’t
pavement tires, but they were working great.
The Maxxis Big Horn 2.0s are really the best
all-around tire out there. I just kept the
same setup with my Elka Suspension and I was
able to rip around the corners. It was super
dialed. I just wasn’t as comfortable on the
pavement as I am on dirt. We wanted to get
through this race and I did that.”
Hancock is looking forward to getting back
into the dirt and into his element as the
series next heads to Canyon MX in Peoria,
AZ. That race is scheduled for February 23-25.
