Colt Brinkerhoff AMA National Hare and Hound Race Report Round 2

AMA National Hare and Hound Association Round 2 Checkers 2015

 

Barstow, CA 2/22/2015- Man, I was excited to see this new venue, only racing NHHA for a few years; I never had the chance to race in Barstow. It hosts some of the gnarliest terrain on the west coast with multiple “SCORE” roads, very rocky and not a lot of places to pass on the virgin parts of the course. I had the “Rat Rod” prepped and ready for battle in the high California desert. I had the engine redone after the first race along with changing my Elka Suspension around a bit. The quad was amazing!  As a Massachusetts native would say “My Moto Xperts/Hot Cams/Hot Rod/Cylinder Works/Vertex Piston TRX engine is a rippa!” I also, have to thank Jay at Impact Solutions for dialing in my Elkas, they worked really hard for me to make them the best they can be. Did some shock tuning with Alex and James Ortiz out at their house had a lot of laughs and got my quad working great.

I ended up driving down by myself to pick up some race fuel from RSI and my main man Jay Young of Team True Racing delivering it to Skyler and I. That was a huge help to both of our programs so thanks to them. I had to stop several times on the way as I was having some stomach issues early on, I felt like Harry Dunn (Dumb and Dumber) when Lloyd pours him some “superlax”….Haha! I had finally made it to the race site and settled in. My girlfriend
Rachel and her dad showed up shortly after. We got everything ready and rode a couple times to give the quads a shake down. I did some minor changes to the shocks and they were better than ever. I was Dungey pumped!

For Immediate Release: Goldspeed racers dominate at final WORCS round of 2014

WORCS_Primm_2014_Dillon_ZimmermanLas Vegas Nevada 11/1/14
Goldspeed Products backed racers recently wrapped up the 2014 WORCS season and did so in domineering style.  David Flores took the overall in the competitive Pro-Am class and Pro class racer Dillon Zimmerman made a triumphant return after missing several rounds due to injury with a season best second place finish.
After a frustrating crash that resulted in torn ligaments in his elbow, Goldspeed/JRiShocks racer Dillon Zimmerman was sidelined for what appeared to be the remainder of the 2014 season.  After almost three months of rest, Zimmerman was given the green light from doctors to compete at the series finale in Primm, Nevada.

The time off proved beneficial for Zimmerman as he was able to secure his best finish of the season.  Coming off the line in 5th, Zimmerman managed to pick up one position before leaving the offroad truck portion of the track despite heavy pressure from Josh Row.  Holding his position, Zimmerman would eventually pass Robbie Mitchel to take over third place as the pair entered one of the many whoop sections on the brutal Primm course.

Colt Brinkerhoff Race Report and 2014 AMA National Hare and Hound Championship Announcement

Colt Brinkerhoff Race Report

AMA National Hare and Hound Association Round 8 Silver State Trail Blazers 2014

Panaca, NV

photo-2-9I was so stoked to race a National again after a long summer break. I raced multiple MRAN Night Races along with the BITD Vegas to Reno with my teammate Cody Mitchell. We ended up winning the Night Race Series Championship but losing Vegas to Reno after a long fight with small issues plaguing our race.

After losing that race, along with the DNF in Utah and taking 4th the round before; I was hungrier than ever for a win! I was a little behind and a little stressed out waiting for the head of my engine to arrive from Moto X-Perts. I sent it into Toby for a service and a few more go fast parts. I received it Wednesday and not being too confident in putting my new Vertex piston in, I called on my buddy Tracon Kirk to come over and help. He put the piston in and cylinder on along with helping with the front Tire Blocks installation. I said it was cool for him to go as I left the head back at the office and needed to go get it. I then called Bundy Inc. (Bryon Bundy) to help me finish buttoning it up so I could try to get decent sleep that night. Everything was going well until I tried to turn the engine over with an allen wrench and it locked up on me. I’m sure the look on my face was one of pure enjoyment, like I wanted to punch an elderly man in the lips. So, we messed with it a little longer and called it a night.

Skyler Howes came in and installed my new Dirt Fiend Racing “Tank” Graphics, which he did a great job on! I called Tracon up and I headed over to his dad Brent Kirk’s shop so he could fix my glorious “F” up. We found out the cam chain was basically in a knot and had a new one installed in no time flat. I felt as accomplished as the Obama administration as I failed to put my engine together correctly or efficiently. I couldn’t have done it without the Kirk family’s help! I loaded up, and pinned it to Pioche where I would stay with my girlfriend Rachel Bosemer and her family for the night.

For Immediate Release: Goldspeed Racing Products WORCS Racing Pro and Pro-Am Race Report

WORCS_2014_Primm_Pro-Am-PodiumLas Vegas NV

(2/16/2014) Round two of WORCS racing brought another successful weekend of first place and podium finishes for a host of Goldspeed backed ATV racers.

Saturdays Production A race was a replay from round one with Goldspeed’s David Flores and Chandler Waxman taking the top two spots.  Flores is defending his title in Production A and both riders are contesting for their first ever Pro-Am championship in Sunday’s main event. Mike Sloan and Cody Mitchell put Goldspeed wheels on the top two podium spots in Open A as well.

Coming off of a 3rd place finish in Taft, Can-Am/Goldspeed racer Dillon Zimmerman was eager to prove that he’s a threat for the podium this year.  Zimmerman looked solid throughout the race, fighting his way back from a 4th place start and taking over the 2nd place position on lap seven.  For the next three laps, the Goldspeed/JRi Shocks racer put his head down and managed to make up time on the leader every lap. Unfortunately, on lap 10, Zimmerman noticed his left front wheel beginning to wobble.  To avoid crashing he was forced to back off in hopes of making it to the pits but the wheel eventually fell completely off, ending his day and chances for a win.

Pro Motorsports’ Matt Hancock Takes Second in the SxS 1000 Class at WORCS Round 2


Primm, NV –
At round two of the 2014 WORCS Series, Pro Motorsports’ Matt Hancock had a very successful weekend in his SxS and on his ATV. With a second place finish in the UTV 1000 Class and a podium finish in the Open A class followed by a sixth place in Pro-Am Class, Hancock was satisfied with his impressive finishes and is looking forward to moving on to round three.

 

In the UTV 1000 Class, Hancock started on the front row, and after getting off to a slow start, he quickly rebounded to move up into the fourth spot by the end of lap one, which is where he remained till the final lap. With time running out, Hancock put on an incredible charge and recorded the fastest lap-time in the class to charge his way up to the second spot for a season best finish in the UTV 1000 class after taking third at the WORCS season opener

Interview with Dillon Zimmerman

How does it feel to finally shake off the gremlins and get a podium at the first round of WORCS? It feels really good to get on the podium at the first round of WORCS, now I just need to be consistent and stay focused and it should be a great year.

That red CanAm plastic seemed to house all the gremlins. Will you be sticking to yellow the rest of the year? Yes I went with red last year just to be different, but I guess my Can-Am wasn’t feeling the red, so we changed it back to yellow one race and I got on the podium. After that I said no more red!

What’s your plan of attack for the next rounds of WORCS to keep yourself on the box? My plan for the next WORCS race took place last week in the gym and on the bike. I just got to stay focused, keep pushing myself and take it one race at a time. Not to mention all the testing I have been doing with JRI shocks has helped a lot with how much longer I am able to ride race pace.
