Justin Waters Clinches WORCS Pro-Am Championship

In Pro Am, Mexican racer Jose Meza Velez made the long trip from San Felipe, Mexico and won in his WORCS debut. Meza Velez was using the race as a tune-up for the Baja 1000. Tavis Hanes rounded out the Pro-Am Podium, and Justin Waters finished fourth and clinched the Pro-Am Championship.

“I race Baja and we are preparing for the Baja 1000,” said Meza Velez. “It is great to win in my first race. I have to offer a big thanks to my father and my uncle for getting us here. I hope we can go to the next race. I always liked the jumps and Glen Helen is the shortest drive from San Felipe.”

Duncan Racing’s Ricardo Gonzalez finished second. He was recovering from foot injuries sustained during the summer break.

“I had some foot injuries over summer break, so I came in here to just have some fun,” said Gonzalez. “Doug Roll helped me setup my quad, and I finished second.”

Maxxis’ Justin Waters grabbed the holeshot and led several laps before a cut down tire slowed his charge. His top five was enough for him to win the championship, his second in WORCS competition. This year Waters won four races and earned two additional podiums.

“Winning the championship is awesome,” said Waters. “I had the holeshot and the lead, but I blew the tabletop jump. I led for several laps, but got a flat and tried to recover from there. I didn’t plan on the championship this year. I just came in to see how my results were. It’s really cool to come back and that my wife got to be here with me for this championship.”

The next race for the WORCS Championship is scheduled for October 21-23 at Buffalo Bills Resort and Casino in Primm, NV.
