Dirt Series round 7 Lake Elsinore

Lake Elsinore Motorsports Park Dirt Series
Pro UTV class 2nd place finish
Dirt Series practice was Saturday and Sunday was race day, except this Saturday there was also a UTV Dash 4 Cash Shootout. I signed up to get some seat time and possibly win some cash. Half way through the shootout I tipped the rzr on the door panel in a turn trying to make a pass. After I got pushed back on all fours I felt no brake pressure so I knew I was done. Pete from Got Sand Performance and Shawn Srader helped install the brake line and looked over the Polaris rzr making sure it was ready for Sunday’s race. The pro UTV class had a total of six racers, me being the only female. The race was held on the main motocross track that had some pretty big jumps. I lined up in the middle of the five other pro drivers and came out of turn one in 4th place. Shortly after I was in 2nd and managed to hold on all the way to the checkered flag. The Southern California weather was around 110 degrees making it really rough for all of us racers. On the second race I got pushed to the outside on turn one leaving me in last. I passed a couple utv’s putting me right behind 3rd place. I battled with 3rd for a few laps and made a pass on the final lap. With only two turns left I got up on two wheels and he passed me right back putting me in 4th place. After combining my 2nd place and 4th place together, I finished 2nd place overall in the pro UTV class.
Thank you to Niko Skiparnias, Pete Corwin, Shawn Srader and Matt Rugh for helping me dial in my Polaris rzr.
