Glen Helen WORCS Amateur SXS Race Report

In SXS 1000 Stock, teenager Seth Quintero snagged the holeshot before surrendering the lead to Gareth Dihel halfway through the event. Dihel took the victory and Quintero was second. The pair is one-two in points in what is shaping up to be a hard charge for the title.

“Slow and steady won the race,” said Dihel. “I happened to make a move in traffic and never looked back. This is going to save a lot of stress. I should be a full race ahead in points and that is going to be huge. I have to thank Randy Romo. I brought a new steering rack with me, but I was missing some parts. He had two complete tie rods in his trailer. He let me have them and just said to put one in the mail whenever. It’s cool to have people like him here. It’s nice to meet someone with a good heart willing help me out.”
