Larry Heidler Makes Pro Stock Debut at Glen Helen
WORCS Pro SxS Racer Larry Heidler Race Report

Moreno Valley, CA (9/28/2018) – BDR Motorsports / Polaris driver Larry Heidler finished 16th in his SXS Pro Stock debut, and was eighth in the SXS Pro race during the WORCS Series weekend at Glen Helen Raceway in Devore, CA. Heidler’s daughter Kaitlyn finished sixth in the Pro Women’s race.

Heidler spent the entire summer break rebuilding both his Pro and his daughter’s Stock Polaris RZRs. Though he fought a turbo issue in the SXS Pro race, new tuning on his FOX Shocks placed him eighth at the finish.

“We made some huge breakthroughs during the summer break,” said Heidler. “FOX has done its homework and they have them working like butter. Between the last round and now, the car is just amazing by comparison.”

Heidler also ran his daughter’s Holz Racing Products-built Polaris RZR in Pro Stock in what became his class debut. Interestingly, Kaitlyn Heidler flipped the car in the Women’s race, but the legendary Holz cage held up perfectly and allowed the elder Heidler to compete in the Pro Stock race after simply changing a belt and gassing it up

“She flipped the car over and there was nothing wrong with it afterwards,” explained Heidler. “Dan Durade came over and helped me swap a belt. We added five gallons of gas in it and I ran it for another 45 minutes. I finished 16th in my first Pro Stock race. Kaitlyn is doing great and once she gets the hang of it she’s going to be contending for championships.”

Heidler believes in running the best products and, like most racers, always has an eye on safety. He said his Holz cars have saved him from injury several times this season.

“If you want to compete, you have to use the best in the business and Holz, by far, builds the best cars,” said Heidler. “I’ve had some hard crashes this year and I’ve walked away from every one of them. Holz makes the best products by far.”

Heidler also runs the best of the best in his components. Super ATV Axles, GBC Tires, and Raceline wheels are just a few of the superior products he runs in both his and his daughter’s cars.

“We just installed a new set of Super ATV axles into her car and Polaris helps us a lot,” said Heidler. “We ran GBC Dirt Commanders with Tire Blocks and experienced no flats whatsoever. The tires hooked up and the Raceline wheels held up great.”

Heidler loved the opportunity to race at home in front of his family and friends. The track is just 15 minutes from his home and he has raced there for several decades.

“The track was phenomenal and the layout was great,” said Heidler. “It had some good fast sections along with some tight areas. This is my home track and I’ve been racing here for 30 or so years. I just love this place.”

Heidler next heads to Mesquite MX in Nevada for the next round of WORCS competition, scheduled for October 5-7.
