North Las Vegas, NV (10/18/2017)
- Goldspeed Tires’ Ty Sanders
won the final race of the WORCS Open A ATV
racing season and clinched the championship
at Adelanto Stadium in Adelanto, CA. Sanders
ran Goldspeed’s GPS Gravity tires on his Honda
to help with the deep sand and silt beds.
Sanders took the holeshot, one of many he
won this year, and held the lead for the first
lap. He lost the lead briefly in a corner
before retaking it for good and scoring his
fourth victory of the season.

A at the WORCS season finale to clinch
“We were nervous coming into the weekend
because we knew we had to win to clinch the
championship,” said Sanders. “We did all we
could do and laid it all out there today.
I took the holeshot, but I blew a corner and
ran around in second for about three-quarters
of a lap. I got back around the leader, put
my head down and just pushed. I knew I had
to win, that second wasn’t going to cut it
Sanders multiple holeshots this season are
a testament to his tires and engine work.
Along with Goldspeed Tires, he runs an ART
“We’re still running Goldspeed’s GPS Gravity
Tires,” explained Sanders. “They are a little
wider and helped us to keep on top of the
sand. The Art Works Power is just phenomenal.
We let go of the clutch and it just goes.
We’ve had a lot of holeshots this year.”
Works' Ty Sanders grabbed the Open A
Sanders overcame injuries sustained at the
beginning of the season to clinch the title.
He appreciated WORCS summer break and used
it to recover for the end of the season.
“I messed up my knee, got a concussion and
hurt both of my ankles coming up short on
a double,” said Sanders. “It seems like I
had an endless streak of injuries at the beginning
of the year. So the long break during the
summer really helped me.
Sanders was just happy to be able to race
at the season finale. Sanders was attending
the concert during the Las Vegas mass shooting.
He survived unscathed, though he is still
“I did everything I could to block it out,
but it’s still there,” said Sanders. “Sirens
still mess me up. Bangs and pops make me a
little skittish. But when I got back on the
bike, I had to block it out and do the job
I had to do.”
Sanders will return to WORCS next season
to defend his title. The 2018 WORCS season
kicks off February 2-4 at The Orleans in Las
