WORCS Rd7 Race Report For The Rockstar/Blingstar/Polaris UTV Team

Bling_Rockstar_action_jump3(Cahuilla MX Park Anza CA, 8/4/2012) – After practicing on Friday, the Rockstar/Blingstar/Polaris team knew they were in for a long day of grueling sweat and hard work on Saturday but were anxious to compete in their first WORCS race of the season. The temperature was in the high 90’s and the dust in the back section was extremely challenging.

There were 33 SXS’s on the starting gate and all 4 of the Rockstar/Blingstar/Polaris 900 XP’s had to start from the back row. When the green flag dropped, the DWT tires hooked up great and gave all 4 drivers great positioning going into the first turn. After an unfortunate collision on the first lap, Jason Merrill was forced out of the race with a broken tie rod. That would leave Bryan Carr, Clint Roberts and Jeremy Merrill to put the laps in to try and bring home a podium finish.

The course was very rough and one lined but after lap one, all 3 drivers had made passes and seemed to be pulling more horse power than the competition thanks to the finely tuned Polaris RZR XP 900’s and Motoworks exhaust.

Ten minutes into the race, the dusty back section got the best of Rockstar/Blingstar/Polaris driver, Jeremy Merrill, when he was trying to maneuver around a stalled UTV, and got clipped from behind. This forced him out of the race for good and the team was now left with Bryan and Clint to get the Rockstar/Blingstar/Polaris UTV’s on the podium. With about 30 minutes left to go and a track that was hammered with bumps and deep ruts, the FOX Shox were put to the test and performed awesome. Both drivers made a hard push and continued to make passes through out the race.

A special thanks to Rick Strobel from FOX Shox, Bob Beshear from Blingstar and the crew at Carr One. They all contributed huge and if it weren’t for sponsors like this, these race weekends would not be doable.

Next Race: The Rockstar/Blingstar/Polaris UTV Team will be competing at the WORCS Round 8 in Taft CA, Sept 14-16
