Team Blingstar put their Polaris XP 900’s to the test at round three of the Rocky Mountain ATV/MC WORCS Series. The race was rough and the track was brutal, but Nick Nelson pulled off a fourth in the Pro Production SxS class. Teammate Clint Roberts had a strong run going, but a mishap on lap four set him on the sidelines.
Nelson quickly started pushing for the lead pack, and used his Polaris RZR XP 900 to get from seventh on lap one to fourth on lap four. “The track was brutal; there was carnage everywhere. I just tried to charge and keep the RZR together,” said Nelson.
Nelson was able to cross the finish in third, but was scored fourth on adjusted time. He credits his Polaris RZR’s durability for being able to withstand the tough track. “Everything worked well. My DWT Tires and Tire blocks gave me all the traction I needed. and the RZR XP 900 handled solid. I am looking forward to round four. My RZR will be rebuilt by Pro Motorsports and ready to rip,” said Nelson after the race.
Blingstar’s Roberts knew how rough the track was and was concentrating on just getting a finish, until a lapped rider got stuck in front of him. Roberts was stuck for almost 20 seconds and went into race mode once he was rolling. “I really wanted to rip after that hold up. I started to push really hard,” said Roberts. Roberts continued his charge until lap five when he hit a hole and broke a tie rod. He was able to muster a 16th place finish for the day.
“We’ve really got the RZR XP 900’s going well. The FOX suspension and run-flat DWT tires helped get us through this brutal race track. We were running the new Blingstar Memory Foam Harnesses, the Blingstar doors that are lighter and more race oriented, and our new PCI Race Radios to communicate with our spotters/mechanics,” claimed Roberts.
With round three in the books, Blingstar’s Nelson is sitting second in points for the Pro Production SxS Class. Roberts has ninth overall. The next round will be April 19th -21st at Sand Hollow in Hurricane, Utah. As the series reaches its midway point, there is no doubt that both Nelson and Roberts are a threat in the Pro Production SxS Class.
