BARON AND LEAVERTON TOP MESQUITE WORCS PROS

ON THE PODIUM: WORCS 2020 UTVS AT MESQUITE NEVADA

Corbin Leaverton topped the UTV Pro Production Turbo class at Mesquite’s fifth round of the World Off-Roads Championship Series. Leaverton won by 37 seconds in his Polaris XP Pro ahead of Davi Haagsma and Shawn Saxton for an all-Polaris podium. Saxton turned the fastest UTV lap on the seventh and final lap with a time of 7:13.677. Mesquite was Leaverton’s third win in WORCS Turbos for 2020, but he was scored 13th with a DNF at Havasu and has a 10-point lead over Haagsma.

Corbin Leaverton won his third Pro Turbo round in his RZR XP Pro at Mesquite MX. Polaris took the top 10 Pro Turbo spots in Nevada.

The Mesquite MX Park was gnarly, and the off-road section waged a war of attrition in Pro Turbos. Deep ruts, square edges and deep silt whoops took out Hunter and Cody Miller, Cody Bradbury, Beau Judge, and Beau Baron.

In Pro Stock 1000s, Beau Baron won by a minute and turned the fastest lap, a 7:22.398 on Lap 3, as he chased Chris Johnson for the lead. Baron took the lead on the last lap as Johnson dropped to eighth because he flipped trying to get past a lapper. Baron tagged a tractor tire barrier and spun a 360 but hung on for the win. Matthew Hancock was second and Tyson Leaver third for an all-Polaris podium. Baron also won the ATV Pro race at Mesquite MX Park, and the Pro Stock win moved him to second in points, three behind Johnson.

Unfortunately, the June round in Wickenburg, Arizona, was cancelled, so WORCS has a 95-day summer break before racing resumes at Glen Helen Raceway in Devore, California, on September 11-13th.
