Las Vegas, NV (3/22/2017)
- Bad luck, a tough course
and stiff competition were no match for Collins
Webster’s Yamaha as he finished third in the
WORCS Pro ATV race in Lake Havasu City, AZ.
Webster notched his first podium of the season.
Webster had issues in practice that required
him to swap frames from his practice to his
race quad. Then, on the parade lap for the
main, his chain broke. Despite starting from
the pits, Webster drove through the field
to finish third.

“They started the race without me and I
was four minutes down before I was ready to
go,” said Webster. “I rode well, and I got
a little lucky, but that’s racing. I was so
far back, it didn’t seem like I passed anyone.
I generally like sandy, sweeping corners,
and it worked out in the end.”
Webster switched to Yamaha this year. Along
with a new training program, Webster’s results
continue to improve. “The Yamaha worked great,”
said Webster. “We’ve been concentrating on
the suspension and getting the bike more comfortable.
It worked really well. The Goldspeed Tires
worked really well. I’ve dropped ten pounds
since the last race, and that’s helped a lot.”

as the season progresses
Despite lack of practice, Webster took a
shot in the dark with his PEP suspension and
it worked out. He ran a conservative pace
to ensure back luck didn’t end his run early.
“We had to work for six hours to swap out
the frames,” said Webster. “I only got a lap
of practice so we guessed on the suspension
setup and it worked out. Because of the chain
issue, I avoided the lagoon jump and stayed
low to keep the rocks out of the chain.”
Webster is ready for the next round
of the WORCS series, held in his hometown
of Las Vegas, NV
Webster is ready for the next round in his
hometown of Las Vegas. That race is being
held at The Orleans and will feature a more
big air track.
“We’re looking forward to the Orleans and
racing so close to home,” said Webster. “It’s
a little more of a motocross track and that
should suit my style.”
Webster will be back in action as WORCS holds
its next race March 31-April 2.
