Las Vegas, NV (1/13/2017) - Gold Speed Tires’ Ty Sanders finished second in the WORCS Off Road Series Pro Am ATV race at Mesquite MX in Nevada. Sanders stepped up this year into the Pro Am class with the goal of finishing on the podium at every race this season.

With Gold Speed Tires and Art Works horsepower, Sanders’ Honda was flawless from the start. He snagged the holeshot and, though back pain slowed him toward the end of the race, he held on for second.

“Art Lenear builds a great horsepower motor and Gold Speed Tires helped me get off to a great start,” said Sanders. “I took the holeshot and tried to set the pace. I let Logan around me early, and fought through back pain to get into second at the end.”

The Mesquite track is notoriously rough. This year’s circuit featured an extended motocross section, as well as deep sand in the hills surrounding the facility.

“The Fox Shocks got me through,” explained Sanders. “It was deep whoops the whole way through and they helped get me through it. Maximum Oil kept the car together. The Gold Speed Tires and Tire Blocks kept the tires going all race.”

Sanders worked hard during the off-season to ensure success in his first full year in Pro Am. He previously competed in Production A and B and is eyeing going Pro in a few years.

“We put in a lot of work in the offseason; my dad, the mechanics, the whole family,” said Sanders. “We’re going to push all year long and try to get on the box.”

Sanders will return to WORCS competition January 27-29 as the series heads to Primm, NV.
