Foggy conditions that were present for the SxS classes on Saturday had cleared a bit by Sunday afternoon, just in time for the Pro and Pro-am ATV races. Visibility was good and dust wasn’t an issue unlike last year, making for great racing conditions for the first round of the 2015 WORCS series.

When the flag dropped it was H&M Motorsports’ David Haagsma who was first off the line and grabbed the holeshot, but his teammate Beau Baron was hot on his heels. Baron stayed close, pressuring Haagsma for the entire first half of the race. Finally, Baron made his move and took the lead.

“David was going so fast that it was hard to get around because of all the roost. I took a chance on a downhill and took the outside line for the lead right before stopping in the pits,” said Baron.
