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.

Goldspeed Racers Earn Top Spots From Coast to Coast

Goldspeed Racers Earn Top Spots From Coast to Coast

WORCS_2014_Havasu_Donna-EllsworthLas Vegas, Nevada 3/24/14 Goldspeed Racing Products returned to the top of the podium last weekend as reigning ATVA champion Chad Wienen secured his first win of the season.  Wienen and the entire Wienen Motorsports race team have elected to compete aboard the Goldspeed aluminum race wheel for the second year in a row.  2 time champion Chad Wienen came out swinging, taking the fastest qualifier award as well as the moto one win ahead of a talented and hungry field of racers.  In moto two, Wienen trailed John Natalie who ripped a holeshot and carried the lead for the entire race.  Wienen’s 1-2 finishes were good enough to give him the overall and allow him to keep the coveted red plate going into round two.  Fellow Wienen Motorsports/Goldspeed/FMF rider Thomas Brown managed a 5-5 finish to give him a top five spot for the weekend.

On the west coast, WORCS racers managed to overcome the brutal conditions of the Lake Havasu race course to earn multiple podiums at the third round of the World Offroad Championship Series. Despite a historically rough course, record attendance meant that racers would have to be on top of their game to survive the conditions as well as the competition.

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.

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.
