Temperatures in the mid 90s and a nice breeze
kept dust to a minimum as the SXS racers took
on a brand new layout for the weekend’s events.
The track incorporated parts of the Glen Helen
course, the Lucas Oil track and the REM Course.
The circuit was run in reverse with from the Summer
race along with some new sections added as well.
In the Pro SXS race, Ryan Piplic grabbed the
holeshot in his Polaris, but Bradbury and Hancock
were on either side of him coming into the first
turn. Piplic’s ride soon suffered a broken axle,
handing the lead to Bradbury, who led the rest
of the way.

Hancock and Nic Granlund were both awarded second-place
finishes due to an issue regarding a supercharger
on Granlund’s Yamaha. Series organizer Sean Reddish
explained that there was some confusion in allowing
Granlund to run the supercharger and he didn’t
want to needlessly penalize anyone.
“After reviewing the information from technical
inspection and the conflict from what was authorized
by our technical inspector and our rulebook, the
fairest outcome was not to penalize Nic Granlund,”
explained Reddish. “We also didn’t penalize anyone
behind him, so we awarded two second-place finishes
for points and moved everyone else up one place.
We have revised our rulebook to allow superchargers
in the Pro class. This was our intent from the
beginning, but due to an oversight, it wasn’t
David Haagsma was third and extended his lead
in the title chase to 20 points. Randy Romo finished
in fourth followed by Corbin Leaverton.
Bradbury, who crashed hard in the Pro Stock race
on Saturday, got a sense of redemption by winning
the Pro SXS race. His win, combined with Piplic’s
ninth-place finish, puts him well in the thick
of the points chase with just one race left.

the lead in the SXS Pro Class
“I lined up way outside and decided if I got
a good jump I’d go for it,” said Bradbury. “I
grabbed the holeshot and ran some solid laps.
Ryan and Matt were giving me a good run. Nic and
Corbin were right there. This is great for me
after yesterday’s catastrophe. I just wanted to
go out and have a solid finish. That’s now three
wins this year. The turbo suits me better than
the stock car. I like having more horsepower.”
Bradbury claimed his third win of the season
in the SXS Pro Class
