The ATVs started with the motorcycles on the
track, which featured deep sand whoops, rocks
and boulders and several technical sections. Mitchell,
long the king of WORCS dead engine starts, snagged
another holeshot, but overcooked a turn on the
first lap and flew over the bars of his machine.
Row took the lead from there and never looked

“I got out to a good start and made passes really
quickly,” said Row. “I checked out on everyone,
hit my lines and rode smart in this sandy race.
I don’t know what it is about the sand. I just
feel so confident and it’s so fun. I was hoping
I could be a podium contender today, so it was
pretty cool to be on top. It’s been two years
since I won, and they both came at the same track.
Beau had a big hand in getting me to come back
Row charged his way into the early lead
at the Sand Hollow WORCS, which he held
to the checkered flag for the win
Baron, Sloan and Webster all battled it out for
second during the waning laps of the race. Sloan’s
machine got stuck in the scoring chute, while
Row got away. After Sloan got going again, Baron
made the pass for second, but Row was too far
ahead for him to mount a charge. The runner-up
finish allowed him to pad his points lead to nearly
a full race.
Beau Baron battled his way into the 2nd
“This course is hairy for me, so to come out
with a second, I’m pretty happy,” said Baron.
“Josh had a great ride and I’m thankful to finish
the race. I was hitting this whoops section and
I stalled my bike. Mike and Collins caught me.
Mike got around me and we duked it out for a lap
before I got back him. Sloan got stuck in the
scoring chute and we got held back 30 seconds.
At that point, I was just trying to survive.”
