One week later, February 12th and 13th, was Round 2 of the WORCS series, held in Mesquite, Nevada. With close to 1000 entries, it was a great weekend for racing (other than a little rain from Mother Nature). In the Pro Main event on Sunday Ty Davis and Nathan Woods both Gated in the top 10 (Nathan - 4th and TY - 9th). And, by the end of the third lap it was Ty and Nathan leading the way. The two teammates rode strongly together, consistently pulling away from the field. Offroad racing is an exciting sport because the race is never over until it's over; and so it was on this day, that at about the 75 minute mark of the race Ty hit a large branch with his front caliper, rendering his front binders useless. Ty pitted, but it was decided that to repair the problem would take more time than was needed, so he rode the rest of the race with virtually "NO" front brake. At the end of the race it was Zip-Ty Racing's Nathan Woods on top of the podium, and Ty hanging on for a well-deserved 5th overall.
In the near future things don't readily slow down for the Team - in two weeks we are racing the Adalanto Grands Prix in California, and Round 3 of the WORCS series in Texas.
