  • Sims Race Report 2017 UTV World Championship

    April 16, 2017- Laughlin, NV- The 2017 UTV World Championship race was amazing! We
    headed out on Thursday night and arrived in Laughlin on Friday morning. We had pre-registered
    for the Family Poker Run so I’d be able to go out and see the course ahead of time. This year, I
    would be racing the short course desert race in the Production 700/800 class which was just over
    a 17 mile loop, 3 laps. I’ve never raced anything like it before, so I took the opportunity to head
    out on the Poker Run and check out the course.
    4588_UTVWC_SHORT_1-X3
    The course looked awesome! I love taking long rides out at the desert through washes and on
    desert trails. There were a few sections of the course that I knew where going to be tough, like
    the Fox Proving Grounds with 6-8 foot tall whoops, but I felt prepared and ready for it. The
    course was everything I love about desert riding, so I was pumped to race the next day.
    After the Poker Run, we headed over to check in at registration at the Riverside Hotel. At
    registration each driver was given a swag bag which included a program book for the event. I
    was honored to be one of only four featured drivers in the program book this year! Next, we
    headed out to the parking lot of the hotel for Tech and Contingency. There were rows of vendors
    and a huge line of cars! We pushed the car through tech, met new people, and saw friends. It’s
    so great to see how much the industry is growing. Every year this event gets bigger. There were
    hundreds of racers at the driver’s meeting on Friday night; I was stoked to be one of them!
    On Saturday morning, we got up early, opened up the trailer and got to work on the last minute
    prep on my car. I practiced changing my clutch belt just in case something happened to it out on
    the course. I wanted to make sure I could change it myself if I had to. My crew chief stocked
    my tool bag and put a camel back with water in my car. We were ready to go! The short course
    race was the last race scheduled for the day, and when it was time, I headed to the start line.
    There were over 100 cars racing that afternoon. I was in row 8 to start, which was the last line.
    As the rows ahead of me took off, I had to take a deep breath to calm my nerves. We’d be doing
    a dead engine start, and even though I had practiced, I have never started a race like that before.
    I heard them count down…5, 4, 3, 2, 1, GO! The green flag flew and we were off. I started my
    car and hit the gas. I was 4th off of the line, but moved up to 2nd before we hit the first turn. As
    we rounded turn two, we left the in-field and headed out into the desert.
    184A2664
    I stayed with the first place finisher, but then we got to a long stretch of straight road, and the
    second place finisher passed me. I had my foot to the floor trying to catch them. I felt confident
    I could battle with them in the technical sections ahead. Unfortunately, there was an accident
    between two big cars on a narrow road with cliffs on either side. I got stuck behind it and had to
    wait for over two minutes for the rescue crew to clear the road. Traffic was backing up behind
    me and it allowed the first and second place finishers to gain time on me. As soon as I got by the
    accident, I knew I had to make up time if I wanted to catch the two cars in my class ahead of me.
    I gave it everything I had.
    0O5A5952
    As I came around and headed into lap two, I notified my pit crew that the car was running good
    and I was still ok on fuel. I passed the pits and started lap two. The course changed with each
    lap because of all of the cars running at the same time. The ruts were huge, the course was
    dusty, and I had to navigate and pick the best lines I could. As I ran each mile, I passed by
    broken cars and drivers out of their cars trying to fix them to stay in the game. I focused on what
    was in front of me and kept going.
    As I was completing lap two, I radioed ahead to my pit crew a few minutes before I hit the pit so
    they would be ready for me. I needed fuel and it sounded like my clutch belt was loose. I came
    into pit, and 10 people surrounded my car. They fueled me, checked my belt, wheels, tires, arms,
    and axels, and sent me on my way in less than a minute. I took off for the last lap of the race. I
    drove as hard and as fast as I could trying to make up time to catch the two cars in my class
    ahead of me, but I just couldn’t get them. I made up over a minute on my last lap, and as I
    crossed the finish line, I landed on the podium in 3rd place! My 54 miles through the desert was
    an awesome experience, and I was stoked to have finished the race. Landing on the podium was
    icing on the cake for me!

  • Sims Race Report Round 6 WORCS in Las Vegas

    April 2, 2017- Las Vegas, NV – I had another amazing weekend at WORCS round 6 in Las Vegas, NV!  We arrived at The Orleans Hotel & Casino on Friday night before the race.  I was eager to check out the track that WORCS had been building all week long.  On Saturday, there was a track walk scheduled in the afternoon.  I walked the track and figured out what I thought were the best lines to take.  I also watched the pro race on Saturday night to give me an idea of the way the cars were going to handle on the tight course.  It was an indoor/outdoor arena race, so I knew the track would be technical.  I love technical courses and I was excited to get in my car on Sunday!
    1C8C5137
    Because the track was so tight, they were starting the UTV’s two-by-two instead of our usual line-up start.  This meant we’d be racing the clock.  I got to the start line early so that I could get a good spot.  I was one of the first two cars to start the race.  WORCS let us go out on one site lap, and then lined us up.  I sat eagerly waiting for the green flag to drop.
    As we took off from the start line, I was able to get out in front, and took the lead.  We started the race outside, and there were dirt jumps, sections of asphalt, metal jumps, tight turns, and logs to race over.
    184A4523
    I remembered the lines I had picked from the night before and got into a groove.   A small portion of the track then headed into the Orleans Arena where we made a loop through, driving over more logs and dirt jumps.
    1C8C5111
    I stayed on the gas and drove fast, but was careful to not be too hard on my car through the rough sections.  Even though I was in the lead physically, there were several cars that started after me and everything was based on time.  I eventually hit lapped traffic and figured out my way around.  There weren’t very many places to pass on the course, so I had to take the opportunity to pass as soon as I could.  After 14 laps, the 35 minute race came to an end, and I crossed the finish line in 1st place!  I also had the fastest lap of the race!

    We are headed to California City MX Park this weekend where I will race round 3 of the DIRT Series and round 1 of the Quad X and UTV Racing Series.  Thanks so much for your support: Got Sand Performance, Red Rock, Method Race Wheels, Crow Enterprizes, Factory UTV, GBC Motorsports, RT Pro, Yoshimura, Demon Powersports, Baja Designs, Gates G Force, Elka Suspension, Rugged Radios, Maxima Racing Oils, Crown Performance Products, Surface Sun Systems, Butter Supply Co, Pavement Recycling Systems, Perrault Motorsports, and my parents who make this possible for me!  Thanks to everyone at WORCS for an awesome weekend in Vegas!  You can check out the Sims188 Race team on Instagram @csims188 or on Facebook at www.facebook.com/csims188/.

  • Sims Race Report Rounds 4&5 at WORCS

    Lake Havasu City, AZ – What an awesome weekend I had racing rounds 4 & 5 at WORCS! We arrived at the track early Saturday morning and got right down to business. I headed to tech and then to the driver’s meeting. My class was scheduled to race in the afternoon. After some last minute prep on the car, I was ready to race.
    We lined up for round 4 in the usual format with the Women’s 1000 class up front, the 900 class in the 2nd row, and my class in row 3. As the other two classes took off, I got ready. The green flag dropped, and we were off. There was a very short distance from the start line to the first turn, and we were all driving hard and fast to get there first. The first turn was a sharp 90 degree turn. We were all bunched up and as we rounded the corner, I fell in to the 4th place position.
    184A7517
    I knew I had a long race ahead of me, so I settled in and went to work. As we drove lap after lap on the rough and windy course, some of the people in my class had some unfortunate luck and many cars broke or rolled along the way. By lap 3, I had moved up to 3rd place, and then on lap 4, I moved into the 2nd place position. I drove as fast as I could trying to catch the 1st place finisher, but I couldn’t get to him before he reached the checkers. I was happy to have pulled off a podium finish in 2nd place!
    184A0831
    The next morning, I woke up ready to race again. My class was scheduled to race round 5 in the afternoon, and I knew it was going to be another hot and rough race. I had raced the course already, so I knew what to be prepared for. I lined up in a different spot than the day before because I thought I could get a better start and not get tangled up in traffic. As the green flag dropped, I floored it. As we rounded the first sharp turn, we went up and over a table top jump, and I fell in to the 2nd place position. The track then made a sweeping right hand turn and the car in front of me took the outside line. I cut to the inside and was able to make the pass quickly. I took off leading the pack behind me. I knew I had to drive smart and consistent. With each lap, I was able to increase my lead by a few seconds. There were many cars from all of the classes that broke along the way and I had to be careful around every turn not to get tied up with them.
    Ken-1902
    As the 45 minute race came to an end, I crossed the finish line first! I was so happy to finish the race in 1st place!
    184A7819
    My team and I are prepping the car and get ready to head to Las Vegas, NV this weekend where I will be racing WORCS round 6. I am looking forward to it! Many thanks to these awesome companies for their support: Got Sand Performance, Mad Racing, Method Race Wheels, Crow Enterprizes, Factory UTV, GBC Motorsports, RT Pro, Yoshimura, Demon Powersports, Baja Designs, Gates G Force, Elka Suspension, Rugged Radios, Maxima Racing Oils, Crown Performance Products, Surface Sun Systems, Butter Supply Co, Pavement Recycling Systems, Perrault Motorsports, and my parents who make this possible for me!

  • Wormhole Racing Race Report WORCS

    This was the first time Wormhole Racing went to a WORCS race so we weren't sure what to expect. No matter what we thought about it before we got there, it was better. Having raced in a more grass roots type series, it was overwhelming to see the level of racers. We got everything unloaded and ready for practice. I had it in my head before hand that I was not going to hit the water jump and pretty much cruise. I didn't want to push so hard that I broke something and couldn't race. Also being the first time on a WORCS track I was not sure what to expect. After 1 lap I pulled off with a big grin. Man that was a fun track.

    After practice I pulled over to tech. WORCS had decided that this race was the race for 900's to get bore and stroke tested. Had to pull my spare off and clutch cover so he could get the tool into the cylinder. As we pulled stuff apart I kept hearing the announcer exclaim wildly when people hit the lagoon jump. Unfortunately they were 4 for 4 on people that crashed. One went end over end losing the front right wheel. He landed right side up and tried to continue, which didn't work too well sans 1 tire. We watched the rest of practice then loaded up the #130 and headed to a car wash to clean up the machine.

    As we watched some of the other races I started to worry about how we would fare. The best piece of advice I got for the track was either take the hole shot or let them go and wreck. I decided to let them go and I still had to let off as we got to the first jump as they were still rubbing each other. The track was so smooth. The WORCS guys groom the track so well. For our race they closed the water jump so I was very happy, until I got to the bail out. I tried to hit the bail out and slid farther than I wanted. This put me right between the top and bottom escape route… on a pile of sand… that high centered me…
    worcs_jump
    Once the rest of the cars that started behind us went by they pulled me off. Now I had a bunch of time to make up. With such a smooth track and the cars in front making some ruts, we were able to gain a ton of confidence and take the turns like we were on rails (or in ruts). Again I was being cautious as I wanted to make sure I finished the race. Some point during the 3rd lap I started hearing weird noise from the front end. I assumed it was my tie rod as I had been having issues with it loosening up and wiggling. I radioed back to the pits and next time around they looked but couldn't see much so we decided I would pull off the next time for a better look. I slowed and pulled off the track to have them look next lap. No flat tires, nothing hanging down, toe and camber matched, must be in my head, out I went again.
    DSC_5651
    Still turned was hard. Right handers made weird noises and were slow and left handers were super quick. I called back saying something wasn't right. When I passed the finish line there was only 3 minutes left of the race so I knew I would only be able to make another lap. Pits informed be they had being picking broken cars off the course left and right and we decided to save the machine for tomorrow and we headed off. When we left the track we were in third place. As I came around to the trailer we saw fourth place go by and knew we lost the podium.

    Once out we saw that I had lost the drivers side front axle and the ball join had been pushed through the upper a-arm. Our weekend was done. We were still happy to have finished 4th in class and 17th overall. Smack dab in the middle, broken machine and all.

  • C Sims Race Report at Pala Raceway

    March 12, 2017 - Pala, CA - I was super stoked to race round 2 of the DIRT Series at Pala Raceway. I had the opportunity to practice out on the race course the day before the race, so I had a pretty good feel for the track. My class was race 8 in the line-up for the day. I headed down to the start line and picked my positon. Unfortunately, by the time I got to the start, the line was full and I had to park myself in the middle of the pack. As the green flag dropped, I got off the line as quickly as I could, but fell fourth in line. I knew I had some work to do. I was able to pass the third place car quickly. I battled with first and second place on lap two. As we were coming off of a sweeping turn and down a hill, first place broke as was out of the race. I stayed on the first place car, but was unable to get to the checkers first. I finished the first moto in 2nd place.
    188_DS_2
    I went down to line-up earlier for the second moto to get a better starting position. I was completely focused and determined. As the green flag dropped, I took off and fell second in line. I was able to pass the first place car in the first lap. I raced hard and fast. I stayed in the first place spot and increased my lead with every lap I drove. As I crossed the finish line, I took the 1st place spot! It felt really awesome to be on top of the box for the first time in the UTV Open 800 class! This first place finish also meant I finished 1st overall for the day!
    188_DS_PALA_1
    I think we’ve got great momentum going this season! I truly appreciate all of the support I receive from these awesome companies: Got Sand Performance, Mad Racing, Method Race Wheels, RT Pro, Crow Enterprizes, Factory UTV, GBC Motorsports, Yoshimura, Demon Powersports, Baja Designs, Gates G Force, Elka Suspension, Rugged Radios, Maxima Racing Oils, Crown Performance Products, Surface Sun Systems, Butter Supply Co., Pavement Recycling Systems, Perrault Motorsports, and my parents who make this possible for me! Thanks to Steve at the DIRT Series for a great day of racing!

  • William Yokley Leads RT Pro Charge at Wild Boar GNCC

    Holland, MI (3/12/2016) - William Yokley made his return to GNCC competition a celebration as he drove from the back of the field in his RT Pro-equipped Polaris RZR to finish fifth in the XC1 Pro UTV race in Palatka, FL. Michael Swift finished seventh in XC1 Pro and Joe Krcelich was fourth in the XC2 Pro Sport UTV race. Jesi Stracham, driving an RT Pro-built Polaris Ace XC900, snagged the holeshot in the Single Seat race, but contact with a tree ended her day early.
    184A0204
    Yokley debuted a brand new Polaris RZR XP1000 in the race. Though the multi-time GNCC UTV Champion, didn’t race last season, he showed his veteran chops in the rough and difficult race. After starting on the fourth row, Yokley was off and running and drove his way through the field to record the top five.

    “It feels good to be back,” said Yokley. “The Polaris RZR XP1000 ran really well even though it only had three miles on it before the race. The first time we even tested it was in practice, so we’re happy with fifth.”

    Combining tight woods sections with wide-open fields, the track was rough and difficult. Yokley relied on his RT Pro components to survive the race.

    “It was a rough track, but the RT Pro suspension components and bumpers really helped me get through the track and run with everyone,” said Yokley. “It was hectic for those first few laps, but then we got out there on our own and ran consistent lap times. I’m looking forward to starting on the front row at the next race.”
    184A0562
    Swift started on the third row in the event. His Polaris XP1000S was on rails during the race due to the RT Pro suspension components. While RT Pro’s superior bumpers and nerf bars get the headlines, Swift also relies on a lot of its other suspension and steering parts.

    “We’re running RT Pro cage, door systems and nerf bars, but they also make a lot of other stuff people may not be familiar with,” said Swift. “We’re running their swaybar systems, frame braces and I really like the way they build it. I like the way they sell their parts. For example, if you bend one part of your bumper, you can just purchase that part and not have to purchase a whole new kit. We like the quality and the way it performs.”
    184A0807
    Swift has run UTV races in the past basically for the enjoyment. This year, he is more focused, a fact that was shown in his race result.

    “During the last few years, we really did the UTV racing because we were there and it looked like a lot of fun,” said Swift. “We’re focused more on the RZR stuff this year so we can be more competitive. We’re training and testing much more this year.”

    In the XC2 Pro Sport UTV class, RT Pro’s Joe Krcelich started off the season with a solid fourth place finish. Krcelich just missed the class championship last year by nine points, so he is looking to make it happen this year, and he is off to a great start.
    184A7907
    Stracham is running her single seat effort out of Swift’s UXC tent. Her RT Pro Polaris ACE is specially built with hand controls because she doesn’t have the use of her legs. Unfortunately, the track was a little too narrow for Polaris’ new wider XC900 single seat machines and she had trouble navigating between the trees.
    1C8C8095
    “Jesi Stracham got the holeshot, came into a corner too hot, sideswiped a tire and it damaged something in the steering rack,” said Swift. “So she stopped and there wasn’t anything we could do. She went out, turned another lap and got some points.”

    These RT Pro drivers will be back in action as the series heads to Moree’s Sportsman’s Preserve in Society Hill, SC April 22-23.

  • Wormhole Racing at 2017 AZOP Junkyard GP Race Report

    Race Report from Eric Harrison of Wormhole Racing

    This was the first race for AZOP in Vicksburg. With a name like the Junkyard GP we were not sure what to expect. We loaded up Saturday morning and headed out. When we arrived at the track it was indeed staged at a Junkyard. Most of the course was out in the desert but they used the edge of the junkyard was used for an spectator viewing, start and timing chute. They drug some vehicles out in to the desert course for aesthetics and marking. It was a well laid out course and was easy to find your way around. The random toilet with arrow marker was humorous and well placed for letting the crew know we were close to the pits.

    c_8089

    Day 1

    The #130 lined up second to last row and the #139 on the last row. There was another 900xp from the Lucas series lined up with us. Straight off the line there was a large hill that had to be rolled and was barely enough for two cars on it at a time. Unsure of our fellow drivers skill the #130 let off just a little before. Was probably for the best. Following her for about 1/4 of the lap we were all over her bumper just looking for a spot to pass. She hung out wide two turns in a row and we knew we could shoot under her the next one. Solid pass until she came in on us. Pretty rough hit but we pushed on. We never saw her again. Then next few laps we passed a couple of the big machines including a YZX, and a couple 1000xp's. Just after the toilet there was a long sweeping left that gradually opened up. After 3 laps we were able to slide the entire turn wide open. Only problem was later we would broke a bead. Need to get some bead locks. We were setting ourselves up fro a pretty good overall finish with an average lap time of 6:14. That would of put us about 7th overall beating out a turbo and 8 1000's but alas it was not meant to be. The #139 was doing well until a fellow driver pushed him over a berm. Driving very consistent and smooth. We wouldn't know until the following morning that a tree branch had taken the life of his right rear tire. 3/8" think branch right through the sidewall.

    c_8089

    Day 2

    Unable to get a new tire for the #139 he was unable to start the day. The field was much smaller on Sunday but Wormhole was set to pound the dirt. The #130 only had 3 lug nuts on the right rear we were going to have to take it a little easier. No direct competition as the other 900 fell out with electrical problems meant we just needed to survive for points and that we did. Our fastest lap was a 6:15 but we had a great time. Working on picking out braking points and being smoother in every turn we pushed harder and harder, letting up over jumps and whoops trying to spare the car some abuse. We were doing great hitting each corner hard until we almost rolled it. As we came past the toilet we were asking the crew to check the tires again. The car was having trouble turning and couldn't hold a line in the turns. No tires down, everything looked great, still we could not get it to turn. Then we get "the call." Race control spotted our sway bar dangling. Shoot, another piece to replace but we had a great time breaking it.

  • Casey Sims Scores A Podium Spot @ DIRT Series Round 1

    Casey Sims Race Report from DIRT Series Round 1

    c_8089

    February 15, 2017 - San Bernardino, CA - We headed to Glen Helen Raceway last Sunday for the DIRT Series round 1. The track conditions were perfect because it had rained the day before and the sun was out the day of the race. I was able to get a few practice laps in on Sunday morning so I could get the feel for the track. The UTV Open 800 class was race 10 in the line-up and there were 6 cars in my class. We lined up for the first moto and I picked a spot in the middle of everyone. It was the straightest shot to the first turn. As we took off, Jacob Peter, Hali Pepper, and I were neck-in-neck for the hole shot. I was in between the two of them and as we approached the first turn, the two of them started to move in towards me and collided. I was able to quickly back out of it and moved left to avoid the crash. Hali was able to recover and got in ahead of me. I stayed on her bumper the entire race and tried to make a pass several times, but I couldn’t get it done on the tight course. As we finished the 6 lap race, I came in 2nd place. I felt good with one more moto to go later in the day.

    I picked a different spot to line-up in the second moto. I put myself all the way at the end of the line. Jacob was able to get his car fixed in between motos, so he was back in the line-up. As the green flag dropped, we all took off. Again, it was Jacob, Hali, and I battling for the hole shot. Hali was able to squeeze in ahead of me just as we made the first turn. Jacob fell in line behind me with the rest of the field behind him. I drove hard and fast the entire race, and again tried to make a pass several times lap after lap. In the end, I couldn’t get by the first place finisher, and I placed 2nd in the second moto. I hit the podium for the day, and took home an overall 2nd place!
