MOTOWORKS CAN-AM DS 450 RACER JOSH FREDERICK EARNS FOURTH AT ROUND SIX OF WORCS
Québec, June 20, 2012 – Motoworks / Can-Am® DS
450™ Josh Frederick and teammate Dillon Zimmerman each finished in the top 10
of the World Off-Road Championship Series Pro class held at On The Edge Raceway
in Enterprise, Utah. Frederick posted a fourth-place finish and Zimmerman
rallied to finish seventh overall. Collins Webster, Can-Am X-Team DS 450 racer,
earned third overall in the Pro-Am class.
“It was a very
challenging weekend in Utah, for Motoworks / Can-Am pros Josh Frederick and
Dillon Zimmerman. They battled their way through deep-water crossings and a
very rocky, short racecourse that forced many bottlenecks. Even with the
difficult conditions, I was proud of the way both our riders never quit and
fought all the way to the end. We have two races remaining to show them what
we’re made of and we will continue to keep fighting for the championship until
the very last race of the season,” said Jimmie O’Dell, Race Manager, Can-Am. “Collins Webster had a
good race on a very difficult course to put his Can-Am DS 450 on the Pro-Am
class podium again.”
Frederick came out of the dead-engine start in the top five. However,
early in the race his machine had issues due to the deep water that in some
areas was over the ATV’s seat. Despite the problem, Frederick moved up into
fourth place after that, but could not advance further. Frederick is 13 points
out of first place with two rounds remaining in 2012. He also competed in his
Motoworks / Can-Am Commander™ 1000 X® in the SxS Production 1000 class and
“I felt good this weekend and the bike was amazing, but this was a tough
race and we just tried to do the best we could out there. I’m going to take it
one race at a time. We all put in a lot of work and I want to put the Can-Am on
the podium next round,” said Frederick.
Zimmerman was just outside the top five off the start, but got stuck on the
second lap and dropped to 13th. However, the young pro fought hard to get back
into the top 10. By the end of the race, he rallied to pick off six riders to
finish seventh on the weekend. Zimmerman is currently fourth in the Pro class
Webster came off the Pro-Am class starting line in the top five and soon
worked his way into third place. He held that spot for the remainder of the
race and earned his fourth podium finish of the season.
