Riverside, CA 4/6/2011 – The race season is in full swing at Walker Evans Racing. In 2011 Walker Evans Racing has already experienced success both in off road and in snowmobile competition. Last weekends event at the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series (LOORRS) at Firebird International Raceway has capped off a glorious winter of competition for WER and our sponsored competitors.
Walker Evans Racing started the season on a high note at the opening rounds of LOORRS at Firebird Raceway but it wasn’t without a hard fought battle. Walker Evans Racing Team Driver R.J. Anderson had a challenging yet rewarding weekend in the 2 classes he competes in, Unlimited UTV and the Super-Lite truck. Anderson who is competing in his new #637 Walker Evans Racing Polaris RZR XP900 felt some pressure coming in to Firebird. With not much time on the new Polaris UTV he knew he would have his work cut out for him and Saturdays results were not what R.J. or his team were exactly hoping for. Saturday’s competition did allow for the Walker Evans Racing team to make the right adjustments to the machine and on Sunday it proved to be highly competitive coming into the main heat race. On Sunday R.J. was leading the race before he was clipped from behind in mid air sending the #637 into a violent tumble. Anderson was shaken but would walk away from this wreck which is a testament to the strength of his Holz Racing built chassis. While the #637 wouldn’t finish the race neither would the other 99% of the field in the UTV class allowing R.J. Anderson to still come away with a 2nd place finish and some solid points needed to carry him into Rounds 3 &4 which will be held at Speedworld in Surprise, AZ on April 15-17.
“The wreck was certainly not what we were hoping for on Sunday. With limited time on the machine and a disappointing finish in UTV on Saturday we really just wanted to put the Walker Evans Racing Polaris RZR XP 900 on the podium and go into rounds 3 & 4 on a high note. Even though we came away with a 2nd place finish due to some much needed luck I still feel like I have something to prove at Rounds 3 &4 and I look forward to racing at Speedworld.” – R.J. Anderson
