Blingstar's Nick Nelson Finishes 4th Overall At Lake Havasu WORCS

April 2013 Racing

Lake Havasu City, AZ - Team Blingstar put its Polaris XP 900s to the test at round three of the Rocky Mountain ATV MC WORCS. The race was rough and the track brutal. Nick Nelson pulled off a fourth-place finish for the day in the Pro Production SxS Class. Teammate Clint Roberts had a strong run going, but a mishap on the fourth lap sent him to the sidelines.

Nick Nelson got off the line and quickly started pushing for the lead pack. Nelson used his  Polaris RZR XP 900 to get from seventh on lap one to fourth on lap four. Nelson put on a hard charge and turned his fastest lap on lap one, at 6:49.392.

"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 finished fourth on adjusted time. He credits his Polaris RZR's durability for being able to withstand the tough track.

"Everything worked well," Nelson said after the race. "My DWT tires and tireblocks 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."

Blingstar's Clint Roberts got off to a good start. Knowing how rough the track was, Roberts said he was concentrating on just getting a finish until a lapped rider got stuck in front of him. Roberts was stuck for almost twenty seconds but went into race mode once he was rolling.

"I really wanted to rip after that holdup. I started to push really hard," said Roberts.

Roberts continued his charge until lap five when he hit a hard hole and broke a tie rod. He was able to muster a 16th place finish for the day. Although he suffered misfortune in this round, he is excited for round four.

"We've really got the RZR XP 900s going well," Roberts said. "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

With round three in the books, Nelson is sitting second in points for the Pro Production SxS Class. Roberts has a solid 33 points, putting him ninth overall.

The Blingstar pair has just three weeks to prepare their Polaris RZR XP 900s for round four of the WORCS Series. The next round will be April 19-21 at Sand Hollow in Hurricane, UT. 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.
