Blingstar put their Polaris XP 900’s to the test
at round three of the Rocky Mountain ATV MC
WORCS Series. The race was rough and the track
was 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 lap 4, which set him
on 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.

fastest lap on lap one, a 06:49.392.
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 was finished in
fourth on adjusted time. He credits his Polaris
RZR durability for being able to withstand the
“Everything worked well. 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,”
regarded Nelson after the race.
Clint Roberts got off to a good start; he knew
how rough the track was and was concentrating on
just getting a finish, until a lapped rider got
stuck in front of him. Roberts was stuck for
almost twenty seconds and went into race mode
once he was rolling.
“I really wanted to rip
after that hold up. 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 a misfortune at this round, he is
excited for round four.
“We’ve really got
the RZR XP 900’s going well. 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, regarded Roberts of his
Blingstar RZR XP 900.

books, Blingstars Nick Nelson is sitting second

points which puts him in ninth overall.

their Polaris RZR XP 900’s for round four of the
WORCS Series. The next round will be April 19th
-21st at Sand Hollow in Hurricane, Utah. 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.
