Tempe, AZ (3/21/2018) -
Pro Motorsports’ Matt Hancock was charging
hard in both the SXS Pro Turbo and Pro Stock
classes before bad luck slowed him at the
end during the WORCS races in Lake Havasu
City, AZ. Hancock finished 10th in the Pro
Turbo and 12th in Pro Stock.
The event was held on the tight, sandy, technical,
and rocky course at the Crazy Horse Campground.
In the Pro race, Hancock drove his KraftWerks
supercharged Polaris RZR. Starting from the
second row, he made it up to third before
one of the large rocks slowed him at the end.
“My KraftWerks supercharger is dialed with
the Sparks engine,” explained Hancock. “I
started on the second row because I had some
difficulties in the last two races. I was
running third on time and we were ripping.
The track was brutal today, I hit a couple
of big rocks and fell back at the end. The
car was working great. I’m really excited
to get through this round and I learned a
lot about the car.”
In Pro Stock, Hancock snagged his sixth consecutive
holeshot from the front row and was ripping
from the start. After losing three positions,
Hancock found the fast line and was running
third when an electrical issue slowed him
on the final lap. He recovered to score a
“I figured out their line and made up more
time, but 200 yards from the finish I had
a fuse pop,” said Hancock. “It was a fluke
deal and pretty frustrating. I got some points
and I’ll be ready to go for Sand Hollow.”
In the Pro Stock race, Hancock said expert
clutch tuning by Sparks Performance Products
and his 29-inch Maxxis Big Horn 2.0 tires
gave him the power and the grip he needed
at the start. With WORCS tight courses, Hancock
explained that starting position is everything.
“I can’t ask for more and it’s all with that
Sparks clutch tuning,” said Hancock. “This
Polaris RZR just rips and the Maxxis Tires
hooked up. These races are so tight that you
have to get up front early.”
With two dialed-in Polaris RZRs, Hancock
is looking forward to the next round. That
race is being held April 27-29 at Sand Hollow
State Park in Hurricane, UT.
