Moreno Valley, CA (5/24/2017)
- BDR Motorsports’ Larry Heidler finished
sixth in the WORCS Series Pro SXS race at
Iron Mine Race Park in Cedar City, UT. Heidler
raced a brand new Polaris RZR Turbo at his
first visit to the track in his rookie season
in the Pro class.
Heidler didn’t make it to the track until
Saturday, so in order to get some practice,
he signed up for the Pro Stock and borrowed
Codey Rowley’s Polaris RZR to get some seat
time before Sunday’s Pro race. He was amazed
at the track’s mix of off road and motocross

“I’ve been out of town for the last six weeks
working in Northern California and wasn’t
able to get home until Friday,” said Heidler.
“I loaded up and left at 3 a.m. Saturday.
I’ve been racing WORCS for years, but this
was my first time at Iron Mine. I like the
big jumps in the infield and the off road
section. The track was fun.”
Heidler had campaigned a naturally aspirated
car for the first six races of the season.
He said he quite a learning curve to meet
with the added horsepower of the turbo ride.

“I hadn’t driven it except for in and out
of the trailer and It is completely different
from the NA car I had,” said Heidler. “It
took me two laps to figure out the car. I
started driving it harder and my GBC Tires
with Tire Blocks were just hooking up. The
Fox Shocks took a couple of bad hits out there
that they soaked up. The Super ATV axles have
been perfect this year. I haven’t broken an
axle all season.”
Heidler has had an up-and-down season. He
has one podium to his credit and now sits
sixth in points. The new car just might be
the spark he needs to get his first win.

in his new Turbo RZR
“I’ve had a couple of bad rounds, but I’m
getting this car figured out,” said Heidler.
“I’m a lot faster and this will be a good
transition for me.”
That win will likely come at Heidler’s home
track: Glen Helen Raceway. He has been racing
there since he was a child and knows every
twist and turn of the tough circuit.
“I’ve raced Glen Helen since I was racing
80cc dirt bikes,” said Heidler. “It’s my home
track, I know it like the back of my hand
and we’ll definitely have something for them
Heidler will be ready to roll as the WORCS
Series next heads to Glen Helen Raceway in
Devore, CA June 16-18.
