  • 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.

    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!

  • 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.

    c_8100

    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!

    My season is off to a great start!

  • Wormhole Racing @ 2017 AZOP Touchdown GP

    Race Report from Eric Harrison of Wormhole Racing

    We headed down to Tucson for the AZOP Touchdown GP bright and early Saturday morning. We had wrapped up replacing shocks on the #139 and fixing up some damage from the last race Friday night and had the UTV's loaded up waiting for us. As the big quads started Wormhole racing started getting ready to head to the start line. There was a lot of vehicles this race which was exciting. Always more fun to race with a group.

    Wormholeracing_EricHarrison

    As we waited to line up my co-driver took time to close his eyes and rest. The #130 was first in the 900cc class to line up. Vehicles were sent of 2 by 2 at 30 second intervals. Eric managed the hole shot barely and pulled away as we hit the first table. With the new Fox RC2 shocks I had the confidence to let the car fly. Back down the other side and into a very sharp 180 left I was able to slide it. The steering felt so precise after replacing the bent tie rods with beefier ones from RT Pro. That was the last time I would see the other 900's. The course was a mix of motocross track and desert which provided a variety of hazards. The #139 found a large cactus shortly after the start when the person he was closing on slammed into a berm and forced Hal to take evasive action. The cholla left them another challenge, picking needles out.

    The course was dusty and with the sun getting lower visibility became an issue. #130 kept closing in on someone, getting close enough a few times to see a light bar flashing in the think dust, but when it disappeared around a turn or dip we would have to let off from not being able to see. Eventually the Pro class caught up to #130 and made the dust that much worse. Things then started to go downhill. #130 wasn't able to get over 40 mph and ended up going in a small loop 5 times before course workers were able to figure out where someone blew through the tape making it impossible to figure out where the course really was.

    In the end we were able to pull out a 1st place podium in the #130 after putting enough distance over second place and limping around at 40 mph. Didn't get to stand on the podium as we were recovering the #139 and pulling spines out of Hal and Tegan.

  • Casey Sims Starts the Season off Strong at WORCS Rounds 1 & 2

    RT Pro Race Report | Casey Sims @ WORCS Rounds 1 & 2

    Primm, NV - Here we go! The 2017 race season has begun! We picked up my new Polaris RZR 800s from the GSP shop the night before we left for WORCS rounds 1 & 2. As we headed out to the race, I had a lot on my mind. This season, I moved up from the SXS Youth 250 Production class. Now racing in the SXS Youth 800 Production class, I would be faced with some challenges in learning to drive a new car, and racing against new racers with amazing talent. I felt ready for what was ahead of me.

    1C8C2267

    As I approached the start line on Saturday for WORCS round 1, I was focused. I had only driven my new car one lap in practice the day before. Due to the heavy rain in Primm, NV that week, WORCS cancelled the normal Friday practice and only allowed us to run one practice lap. They also cancelled qualifying for the Lucas Oil track race that we were about to run. We qualified by drawing straws the night before, and I was lucky to pick #1. I had a great start position. As we rolled through the first lap behind the pace car, I geared up for the green flag to drop. It dropped and we were off! I was able to hold my position for a short period of time, but then I was passed by two of my competitors. As the race progressed, I stayed consistent and focused on my new car and the way it was handling on the track. By the fourth lap, I was running in 5th, but was able to move to 4th on the fifth lap and finished the race in 4th place. I was happy with the way my car handled and I was able to improve my lap times by 6 seconds over the course of the race!

    184A4663

    On Sunday, we’d be racing the full WORCS desert course for round 2. The rain had come back on Sunday which would make for a very muddy day. We lined up for the start of the race, and as the green flag dropped, I floored it and was running in the top 4 of my class. The track was muddy and I was already using my tear-offs. About half way through the first 8 mile lap, I had gone through all of my tear-offs and my visor was fogging up. I radioed ahead to my pit crew and told them I was having trouble seeing. I had to finish the lap and get to my pit. As I pulled into the pit, my crew chief had towels for me. He quickly wiped the mud off of my helmet and sent me on my way with towels to use for the rest of the race. I had lost a little time with my pit stop, and was running in 6th place, but in the end, it was the best thing I could have done. All of the other racers were having problems seeing too and some got stuck or rolled because of it. Coming into lap 3, I was running in 3rd. I stayed consistent and was able to make up some time, and I finished the race in 3rd place! I was really happy to have moved up to a podium position!

    I am looking forward to this season and I am feeling more confident in my new car every time I drive it. I’d like to thank my amazing sponsors for their support: Got Sand Performance, Mad Racing, Method Race Wheels, Crow Enterprizes, Factory UTV, GBC Motorsports, Yoshimura, Demon Powersports, RT Pro, Baja Designs, Gates G Force, Elka Suspension, Rugged Radios, Maxima Racing Oils, Crown Performance Products, Surface Sun Systems, Pavement Recycling Systems, Perrault Motorsports, and my parents who make this possible for me! Thanks to Harlen Foley for taking awesome pictures of us in the rain and to WORCS for organizing these races and giving us a place to run!

  • RT Pro’s Logan Gastel Finishes Top Ten in BITD Turbo UTV Championship

    RT Pro BITD Pahrump Nugget 250 Side by Side Report

    RT Pro’s Logan Gastel got a last-minute call from a teammate to enter the Pahrump Nugget 250 to help boost car count. With less than 24 hours to spare, Gastel took the start, which kept him ninth in the Best in the Desert Turbo Points Championship.

    184a0270

    “We didn’t initially plan to race in Pahrump due to the points,” said Gastel. “We had planned to take off that race and focus on building our new car for 2017. Unfortunately, Friday night we heard from our teammates that the car count was too low for them to get enough points for the championship. So we loaded up the car and headed to Pahrump. Unfortunately, we only made it to pit one.”

    184A0267

    Looking back on the season, Gastel continues to be impressed by his RT Pro suspension, chassis and steering components. Many of the parts are still being used, even after an entire season desert racing miles.

    “We have over 1,500 miles on our turbo car this year with most of the original stuff we started with,” said Gastel. “We changed some things because of revisions that Andy made. The steering components and everything else has worked flawless for us.

    “RT Pro has been great for us,” added Gastel. “To help those guys develop their long travel suspension and chassis components for the Can-Am Maverick has been a true honor for us. Working with Andy and RT Pro has been great. You would think being so far away and having to explain things over the phone that you wouldn’t get what you needed, but they’ve always over-performed.”

    184a0336

    Gastel has big plans for 2017 and looks to have one of the top cars in the Pro Turbo class. He’ll unveil a new Can-Am X3 at the season opener.

    “We definitely need a fresh start,” said Gastel. “We’ve signed a multi-year contract with Can-Am to race the X3 beginning next year. The car is super fast right out of the box and we’re looking forward to some great results.”

    Gastel and his new Can-Am X3 will be ready for action as BITD kicks off its 2017 season January 6-7 in Parker, AZ.

  • RT Pro’s Pratt Brothers, Krcelich and Henry Thrill at Ironman GNCC

    RT Pro’s GNCC Round 13 SXS Race Report

    RT Pro racers Joe Krcelich finished out the year with a second place finish in the GNCC XC2 Pro Sport UTV Class, and Marcus Pratt just missed a spot on the podium with a fourth place finish in the XC1 UTV class at the Ironman GNCC season finale in Crawfordsville, IN.

    184A7374

    Krcelich earned his second consecutive runner-up finish in XC2. With four podiums in six races this season, Krcelich finished second in GNCC XC2 UTV Points championship

    “The RT Pro stuff worked flawlessly today,” said Krcelich. “I couldn’t ask for anything better. The equipment has been spot on all year. It’s great stuff. We did a little better this year than last year. Everyone wants to win and the championship is the goal. But after having two bad races last season while leading the points, I changed my mindset. I tried to be a consistent top-three guy. I fell a little bit short, but I’m definitely better this year than last year.”

    9G3A1187

    Henry, who was in contention all season, was leading the XC2 race when a hub issue ended his day early. He ended up third in final points.

    “We had a good run, and the car was great,” said Henry. “We had just started putting some time on one and two, and we lost a hub in one of the fields. The RT Pro equipment was great. We should have had a better year, but what can you do?”

    9G3A1556

    In XC1, Mouse Pratt equaled his best finish of the season, a fourth. He said without the RT Pro high clearance A arms, he’d likely still be stuck in the mud.

    “The RT Pro stuff is awesome,” said Pratt. “Without those high clearance arms, I’d still be stuck in some of those creek bottoms. They would have had to drag me out. I love their stuff. We’ve had some bad luck this year, but today it held together and I can’t complain, ending the season with a fourth.”

    9G3A1197

    Marcus Pratt finished 11th in XC1. He said the RT Pro components helped him through a few driver errors during the event.

    “My RT Pro A arms held up perfect when I had a couple of little boo-boos, and they kept me from a DNF,” said Pratt. “We’ve had a couple of issues this season. Sometimes you get a cloud over your head during a racing season. We’ll keep our heads up and keep plugging.”

    With the season at its conclusion, GNCC series will celebrate its 2016 season November 25 during the season banquet in Morgantown, WV.

  • RT Pro’s Sam Yokley Clinches GNCC ACE Championship

    RT Pro’s Ironman GNCC Single Seat Race Report

    RT Pro’s Sam Yokley clinched the GNCC ACE Single Seat Championship with a second place finish at the Ironman Raceway in Crawfordsville, IN. Fellow RT Pro racer Jesi Stracham finished off the season with a fourth-place finish.

    184A6826

    Sam Yokley earned his second consecutive championship after coming into the event with just a one-point lead. He won three races this year and followed that up with two additional podiums. His RT Pro components helped him cope with the difficult course that featured ruts, trees, and a motocross course.

    184A6696

    “This was a great race and I made it through and won the championship,” said Yokley. “RT Pro helped me out a lot this year. They gave me great parts and kept me running competitively. Without the high clearance arms, you’ll catch rocks and stumps and just rip them off. We had some good racing this year.”

    184A6611

    Stracham, who is paralyzed from the waist down, ran an RT Pro-built Polaris Ace equipped with hand controls all season. Stracham finished fourth in points and earned two podiums during the season.

    184A6622

    “This is always my favorite race of the year, and it was a great time,” said Stracham. “RT Pro has been awesome for me over the years.”

    184A6710

    With the racing season over, GNCC Series will host its annual banquet November 25 in Morgantown, WV.
