El Cajon, CA (1/12/2017)
- Duncan Racing / STI’s Kyle Fuller scored
a runner-up finish in Production A and recovered
from a hard crash to score a top 10 in Pro
Am during the season opening ATV WORCS Off
Road race at Mesquite MX in Nevada. Fuller
returned to WORCS racing this year with longtime
sponsor Duncan Racing and his #145 Honda.
In Production A, Fuller hung back at the
start and drove through the field to finish
second. He dialed in his Elka shocks to deal
with the rough track conditions.

in the WORCS Production A Class on Saturday
at the Mesquite MX Season Opener
“I started last and worked my way through
the pack,” said Fuller. “The track was really
rough. The bike was working well. It was difficult
to set up the shocks because this track had
a little bit of everything. I just found a
happy medium and it worked out well.”
Fuller took the same setup into the Pro Am
race and used similar tactics to stay in contention
during the late stages of the event. He was
charging to the front when a hard crash relegated
him to a ninth-place finish.
“I didn’t want to get the holeshot today
because I knew everyone would be trying to
kill themselves at the start,” said Fuller.
“So I just hung back and kept my own pace.
My plan was working out and the bike was flawless.
On the second-to-last lap, I was feeling really
good and charging forward when I hit a whoop
the wrong way and ended up on my back. That
pretty much ended my whole day. I pulled my
bike into the pits and waited for the checkered
flag to come out, so I could take the finish.”

Fuller is pleased to welcome back Duncan
Racing this year, as well as a brigade of
other awesome sponsors. “Duncan Racing has
been backing me forever and they have been
an awesome partner,” explained Fuller. “They
are super important to my program.”
Fuller is still getting used to racing without
his brother Garrin. Garrin Fuller retired
from racing after last season. “It feels really
weird not having him here,” said Fuller. “It
always helped me out when Garrin was here.
He was always helped me with lines and racing
