WHERE TO RIDE AND RACE YOUR UTV: WORCS RETURNS TO CALIFORNIA

WORLD OFF-ROAD CHAMPIONSHIP SERIES AT GLEN HELEN SEPTEMBER 11-13 2020

World Off-Road Championship Series (WORCS) UTV racers return to action in mid-September and last raced at Mesquite, Nevada, on May 22nd-24th. Pro winners were Corbin Leaverton in the Turbo Pros, over Davi Haagsma and Shawn Sexton for an all-Polaris podium, and Beau Baron ahead of Matt Hancock and Tyson Leaver for an all-Polaris RS1 podium in Pro Stock 1000s. With the $110,000 Texas UTV Race Series ending recently, expect 2019 Turbo champ Cody Miller and co-champion Hunter Miller to rejoin WORCS – the two actually tied in season points but Cody had more wins.

Chris Johnson leads Davi Haagsma in Pro Stock 1000 series points by three and Matt Hancock by five. All are in RZR RS1s.

Besides the Pro Stock 1000s and Pro Production Turbos, there are 13 other championship classes with five adult classes – Production 1000, Stock 1000, Production 900, Production Turbo 1000, and Women’s. Youth UTV classes include 1000 Stock, 800 Production, 650 Production, 600 Stock, 250 Production, 250 Stock 9-12, 250 Stock 6-8, and 250 Limited Stock. See www.worcsracing.com for registration, downloading the WORCS mobile app, and signing up for live text race alerts.

In Pro Production Turbos, Corbin Leaverton (not shown) leads Davi Haasgma by 10 points with three rounds to go.
