“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.

footsteps to get onto the podium into a
second place spot.
