Los Angeles, Calif. - February 28, 2011 - Bomb Squad Racing's Josh Creamer claimed his second holeshot of the season and first career WORCS victory at round 2 of the 2011 WORCS series at Buffalo Bill's Resort and Casino in Primm, NV. Josh now sits just four points behind current points leader Jeremy Warnia in the race for the 2011 championship.
Track conditions in Primm were cold and wet due to a winter storm that rolled in from the west. Snow, sleet and freezing temperatures descended on the track all day Saturday, and though the snow had melted by Sunday morning, bitterly cold temperatures still made it a tough race for everyone.
Creamer grabbed a monster holeshot at the start of the pro race, his second of the season, but dropped to second after misjudging the pit area entrance. "Josh came in there really fast and I think it caught him by surprise," Team manager Kory Ellis said after the race. "I looked up and saw his bike flipping and hay everywhere and thought, 'This isn't going to be good.'"
"It looked worse than it really was," Creamer said of the mishap. "Once I knew I was going to hit the hay-bales, I jumped off. The bike kind of exploded the hay, so it looked pretty wild, but I just walked over, hopped back on and took off. I had a big lead on Warnia, but he passed me during that mess right as I was getting back on my quad."
After recovering from his spectacular crash, Creamer settled into second behind French rider Jeremy Warnia and paced himself, waiting for an opportunity to strike. That opportunity came when Warnia had to pit on lap six, and Josh once again took over the lead. Once in the lead, Josh put the hammer down and powered the Bomb Squad Honda to his first WORCS win.
"It feels great to get this win," Creamer said after the race. "I'm learning a little bit more at each race. I slowed down a little bit this time and rode at a more relaxed pace. I've also been training a lot, and came into this event ready to race. The training and pacing myself paid off. This was a much easier race for me than the last one, and I had a lot of fun out there."
The third round of the 2011 WORCS ATV Championship will take place in Lake Havasu, AZ on March 21st.
