Blingstar / Polaris Sand Hollow WORCS Race Report
Polaris RZR XP 1000 Racers Clint Roberts & Nick Nelson
Hurricane, UT (4/16/2014) – The WORCS Racing Series headed to beautiful Lake Sand Hollow State Park in Hurricane, Utah for the fourth round of action packed WORCS SxS racing. Over 75 SxS drivers lined up to compete for the top spot on the SxS Podium at this picturesque race location. Blingstar / Polaris RZR XP 1000 SxS racers Nick Nelson and Clint Roberts both grabbed a top ten finish in the WORCS Racing SxS Pro Class.
After a five hour drive from Corona, CA and having to repair a flat tire on his trailer and some sketchy incidents on the road, Clint Roberts made it the Sand Hollow State Park to take in all the amenities and one of his best finishes this season rounding out the top ten in the WORCS Racing SxS Pro Class.
“The race went well and we had a good time. We basically learned the track during the first lap of the race. I just kept pace during lap one, and then on the second lap I kind of settled in and pulled away and made some passes. The Polaris RZR XP 1000 ran very well. The JRi Suspension worked insane! We had the option to run paddle tires, but we chose to use DWT Moapa tires and they hooked up awesome in the sand” explained Clint Roberts.
Blingstar / Polaris teammate Nick Nelson also had a great finish at WORCS Round four. Just days before the race, the team finished building their all-new Polaris RZR XP 1000 for Nelson with the help of Polaris, Glazzkraft, and UTV Underground. Nelson’s new ride proved to be a success as he grabbed his first finish of the season with eighth out twenty-eight racers in the WORCS Racing SxS Pro Class.
“Blingstar, Glazzkraft, and UTV Underground joined forces and put a new Polaris RZR XP 1000 together for the team. Six guys pulled an all-nighter and got my car together the Wednesday before the race. The race was fun, I started in the last row, and I just tried to follow someone so I had an idea where to go. My DWT Moapa tires and Tireblocks worked great out there in the rocks. The new Polaris RZR XP 1000 is just as fast as my built Polaris RZR XP 900 I was running. Its just much more reliable being stock. Its really cool you can go that fast out of the box with Polaris!” said Nick Nelson of his eighth place finish at the Sand Hollow WORCS race.
The Blingstar / Polaris race team will head to the Ridgecrest Fairgrounds in Ridgecrest, CA on May 9-11. Ridgecrest Fairgrounds is a new venue for the WORCS Racing Series and it will feature an all-new track for the highly competitive WORCS Racing SxS Pro Class and it will be exciting to see where the Blingstar / Polaris race team will finish as they continue to fine tune their Polaris RZR XP 1000 race machines.
