Pro Motorsports’ Takes BITD Bluewater Pro Quad Win
Hancock Brothers end BITD ATV Racing Career with Win

BEST IN THE DESERT
Bluewater Desert Challenge
Tempe, AZ (10/13/2016) - Pro Motorsports riders Matthew and Jeff Hancock finished off their BITD ATV racing careers with a victory at the Bluewater Desert Challenge in Parker, AZ. The brothers dominated their “home race” in the fourth and final BITD ATV race of the season.

The Hancock Brothers missed one race this season, and weren’t in contention to defend their 2015 championship. They have elected to make this their last BITD ATV desert race.

“With age comes cage, so I think this is going to be our last year racing ATVs,” said Jeff Hancock. “It feels amazing to go out on top like this. After everything we’ve gone through the last couple of years, winning a championship last year and winning our last race on a quad. It felt pretty good.”

The Hancock’s had to contend with high speeds and high temperatures on Saturday. Sunday brought rough conditions, making it even more challenging.

“The Roll Design/Maxxis/Pro Motorsports bike worked excellent,” said Jeff Hancock “The suspension was dialed in and our Maxxis Tires with Tire Blocks were excellent, especially with all of the square edges out there.”

Their Sparks engine was also a key to victory here. Lap times were fast on Saturday with Matthew Hancock scorching the charts. “It was faster on Saturday and the Sparks Motor really turned well,” said Matthew Hancock. “When you’re doing 85 mph on a quad, you know your engine is strong.”

The Hancock’s father, Larry, was here to cheer on his sons. He was proud of their accomplishments this season. “They won two of the three races they competed in,” said Larry Hancock. “If you have to go out, that’s the way to go. I’m looking forward to them focusing more on UTVs.”

Though the two races were four laps long, Matthew Hancock was itching for more. He had fun negotiating Sunday’s rough track. “This is my kind of racing; I wanted to do 10 more laps out there,” said Matthew Hancock. “I was at home and loving life. It was really sandy and fast on Saturday. Sunday it was rougher and I like that a lot more.”

Pro Motorsports and Matthew Hancock will be back on track as the WORCS Racing Series hosts its 2016 season finale October 21-23 in Primm, NV.
