Valcourt, Québec, January 25, 2012 – Motoworks / Can-Am DS 450 Pro racer Josh Frederick finished second in the Pro class at the World Off-Road Championship Series (WORCS) opener in Devore, Calif. Can-Am X-Team support racers also scored two Pro-Am class podiums and a victory in the Production A division at Glen Helen Raceway.

“Our racers had a good weekend, earning several podiums, despite the wet, challenging conditions and one-line track at the opening round at Glen Helen,” said Jimmie O’Dell, Race Manager, Can-Am. “Pro racer Josh Frederick led at one point and battled until the very end before netting a hard-fought second place finish. Fellow DS 450 Pro racer Dillon Zimmerman tied a career-best, finishing fourth-place overall in the Pro class.”

JOSH FREDERICK

Frederick, who finished second overall in the Pro class in 2011 and is a former WORCS ATV Champion, started the race in the top five and quickly moved up into second place by the end of lap two. Later in the race, Frederick took over as the race leader. After leading for two laps, Frederick dropped back to second and continued battling, bumper-to-bumper, with the leader. The two racers did this all the way to the finish line, but Frederick could not find a way around and had to settle for second overall.

“I went out there and just tried to ride my own race and do my best,” said Frederick. “Early on, I got hung up in the WORCS enduro-cross section, but I just put my head down and tried to make up time and I did. My DS 450 was running awesome and it felt good to start the season on the podium.”

Dillon Zimmerman

Motoworks / Can-Am DS 450 Pro Dillon Zimmerman started the day in fourth place ahead of Frederick. He later climbed into the third-place position behind Frederick and the race leader. From there, Zimmerman had his hands full with three other racers challenging him for the podium. While he missed the final podium spot, he was able to earn fourth and match a career-best finish in the WORCS Pro class.

In Pro-Am class action, Can-Am X-Team DS 450 racers Collins Webster, the reigning WORCS Pro-Am Champion, and Canadian David Larochelle each finished on the podium earning second and third, respectively. Larochelle also won the Production A class aboard his Can-Am ATV.

The next WORCS race is scheduled for February 11-12, at Buffalo Bills in Primm, Nev.
