“Bikeman and Barker’s Performance really helped me out with this new RZR and we came out strong for this event after getting a third place last year. Bikeman did all of my clutching and the tuning on the machine and Barker’s did the exhaust. This car was running amazing and rode really well for the entire race. RT Pro also helped me out with the spring kit and the sway bar which kept the car planted in some of these fast corners. I think I was about fifth or so in the holeshot and then got into third place by the 5th lap and then got into first place pretty quickly. I was able to make a few pit stops and it made the race go really smoothly. I was able to make a few gutsy passes in the really dusty sections where other guys were slowing up because they couldn’t see and I was able to get around them. The challenge section was pretty fun and we took it every lap and I think that helped us out quite a bit. The MX section was a lot of fun and I was able to get around a few guys there as well to get into the lead,” said Nelson.
