In the Pro race, Granlund got an excellent start and battled with Randy Romo throughout the race. He fell back outside the top five in one section, but battled past Romo to secure fourth in his Packard Performance supercharged ride.

“I got a great start and was running well,” said Granlund. “I settled into a good pace and on the last lap I saw that my temperature started going up, so I had to back it off. About five turns from the end, Beau got into me and pushed me off the track. It was a fairly aggressive move. I had a strong run going.”

Though he just missed out on the podium in SXS Pro and he had mechanical issues in Pro Stock, he is still well in contention for championships. He sits third in SXS Pro points, just nine points back and he’s fifth in Pro Stock.

As WORCS enters its annual summer break, Granlund’s car is being shipped back to STV. The car will be completely stripped down and rebuilt before WORCS racing returns to action in September. The car is a tribute to STV’s reliability as it has been used for a full year and a half.

“This car will go back to STV,” said Granlund. “We’ll tear it completely down, and straighten the frame. It’s taken a lot of abuse. This is the same car we used last year.”

Granlund will reunite with his trusty Yamaha when the series comes back from the break at Glen Helen Raceway in Devore, CA September 14-16.
