Tempe, AZ (3/1/2018) - Pro
Motorsports’ Matt Hancock took second place
in the UTV Pro Stock class in the second round
of the WORCS series championship. Racing was
held at Canyon MX in Peoria, AZ with beautiful
sixty degree temperatures and clear skies.
Canyon MX was Hancock’s hometown race, so
he felt the extra support of friends and family
who made the trip to watch him race. The added
support helped push Hancock to the front of
When the race began, Hancock’s Maxxis tires
hooked up paired with Sparks tuning launched
him forward to claim the holeshot. “I pulled
off a great holeshot. The Maxxis tires and
Sparks combo gave me a great jump,” said Hancock.
Hancock was out front early, but reported
a few bad line choices that Hancock said dropped
him into third place. From there it was an
all out battle with Beau Baron chasing him
down and pushing him throughout the race.
“Baron ran me down, and I started making some
mistakes from being nervous. I finally shook
that off and started racing, so we picked
up our lap times and caught the leaders,”
The course at Canyon MX was filled with large
rocks and tough conditions, but it was no
match for Hancock’s setup. “The Elka suspension
worked awesome. We put a lot of time into
testing and it is awesome to see it pay off.
We were nailing some big rocks, so huge shout
out to Tireblocks for keeping us going. The
track was brutal and it all stayed together
and kept taking the beating. These Polaris
RZRs are so strong,” explained Hancock.
Hancock will next compete at Lake Havasu,
AZ on March 16-18 in the third round of the
WORCS series. “I will really enjoy these next
couple races. Hopefully we can move back up
in the points and see where it takes us,”
said Hancock. Look for Hancock to top the
podium at the next round.
