William Yokley Takes WORCS Series Championship in RANGER RZR XP 900
Minneapolis, Minn., Nov. 15, 2011 – Just a few weeks after winning the GNCC “Open Modified” UTV Championship in his National Guard Polaris Coastal DragonFire Yokley Racing RANGER RZR XP 900, William Yokley took the WORCS Racing “Side-by-Side 1” Championship his first year racing the series.
“We, once again, would like to congratulate William on another championship,” said Donna Beadle, race team manager for Polaris Racing. “Both William and teammate Scott Kiger have been very dedicated to developing and racing the RANGER RZR XP 900 and we couldn’t be happier with the result.”
The last side-by-side WORCS race of the season was hosted at Speed World MX, in Surprise Arizona. Yokley only needed to finish in the top eight to clinch the championship so he planned to be a little less aggressive than usual. It was a good thing he had a points cushion because his day did not go as planned and he ended up finishing ninth but was still able to clutch the championship by a few points. His teammate, Scott Kiger finished seventh after helping Yokley. Polaris was represented on the podium with RJ Anderson and his Walker Evans Racing, Polaris, Holz RANGER RZR XP 900 taking first and Phillip Martin taking second.
