Matt Hancock Takes Fourth in Farewell WORCS Pro ATV
WORCS Racing Round 10 Buffalo Bill's Race Report

Tempe, AZ (10/28/2016) - Pro Motorsports’ Matthew Hancock finished fourth in what will likely be his last WORCS Off Road Series Pro ATV race during the season finale in Primm, NV. Hancock had clutching issues in both Pro SXS races, but still managed to finish both races.

Hancock is retiring from full time ATV racing to focus on SXS. He went into the final ATV event without any expectations and recorded a career-best fourth-place finish.

“I just went out there and had fun,” said Hancock. “I wasn’t killing myself by any means. I just rode my own race and I capitalized on some of the guys in front of me having trouble. It was good to go out and have fun and get my best finish ever. I’ll do some local series in ATVs, and I’ll still race the SXS. I’m just taking a year off of WORCS ATV and try to enjoy some other aspects of racing.”

Hancock said clutching slowed his charge in both the Pro and Pro Unlimited SXS races. He was running competitively in both races before falling back.

“It was a long day yesterday,” explained Hancock. “I was in the second row in Unlimited. I pulled away from my row and took the lead on the first lap. I’ve been doing a lot of testing with the Sparks engine and Elka suspension and I was ripping. We had been doing some clutch testing and, unfortunately, we dropped the ball. We have some homework to do and we’ll be ready to go again. In the Pro race, I was running smooth and the last lap I started to push it. The belt was slipping so once again we had clutching issues.”
