Mystik's Mickey Thomas Takes Second at WORCS Finale
WORCS Racing - Round Ten - Buffalo Bill's Race Report

Cumming, GA (10/27/2016) - Mystik Lubricants’ Mickey Thomas finished second in the WORCS Off Road Series SXS Pro season finale at Buffalo Bills Resort and Casino in Primm, NV. He finished out one of the most competitive points championships in history in second, just one point out of the lead.

Thomas’ race weekend nearly ended before it started. After and engine problem in practice, Chris Mills stepped up and loaned him an engine. He had a great start, and challenged for the lead but settled for second in the end.

“We missed the championship by one point and it’s a bummer, but my hat is off to Haagsma,” said Thomas. “Second place in WORCS isn’t bad in our second season. We were definitely on a mission. I think we both knew what we had to do. Once he pulled the holeshot and got ahead early I knew I had to catch him. I was chasing my first win today and didn’t get it. It kind of makes me want to come back next year. We weren’t planning on it, but we’ll see.

Thomas had planned to run only a limited WORCS campaign this year to focus on the Lucas Oil Series. With podiums in the first three races, he decided to finish out the season.

“We had originally planned to just run the trucks, but we kept pouring some time into this and it turned out well,” said Thomas. “I’m happy I stayed with it.”

Thomas is from Georgia, so running WORCS means a lot of travel. Noting he wanted to race against the best, he has easily carved out a name for himself in the competitive series.

“We originally came out here because this was where all the big names were racing,” said Thomas. “We wanted to come race with the best. We’ve come a really long way in a very short time. Mystik is on board with us next year and we’re looking forward to it. We have a lot to look forward to next season.”

Thomas will more than likely return to the WORCS Series when it kicks of its 2017 SXS racing series January 20-22 at Buffalo Bills Resort and Casino in Primm, NV.
