Pro Stock SXS class at Glen Helen
Hancock snagged the holeshot at the beginning
of the race and immediately began putting
down fast laps. After negotiating lapped traffic
for the last three laps, he came home with
the wire-to-wire victory.
“I’ve had pretty bad luck here before, so
being able to get the win here last year and
get the win again today was awesome,” said
Hancock. “I had a great start, which was huge.
We didn’t have any room for mistakes and I
was able to push until the end. My car took
everything like a champ.”
Hancock claimed yet another holeshot on his
Maxxis Big Horn 2.0 tires and clutching by
Sparks Performance Products. The 28” tires,
combined with Elka shocks helped him easily
negotiate the muddy and hard-packed surface.
“The ruts got deep and these things just
keep hooking up,” said Hancock. “I got off
to a great start with that Sparks clutch tuning.
I can’t say enough about Elka suspension.
Their shocks are the best I’ve ever used.
As the track gets rougher, we get faster.
Doug Roll with Roll Design puts in a lot of
effort and he helps us get this stuff dialed
in. It showed today. The track was pretty
rough and we just kept it pinned.”
The conditions caused quite a few cars to
retire early with mechanical issues. Hancock
was especially proud of the way his RCV Performance
axles held up.
“We run the best equipment, and we have to,
to run the pace we do anymore,” said Hancock.
“RCV Performance makes really strong axles.
It’s great to get that podium for them to
show how strong their stuff is. They hold
together so you can keep on going.”
The victory came at the perfect time for
Hancock as it places him third in points,
still well within range of the title. Hancock
is now 23 points behind the leader heading
into the final three races.
Hancock will return to the WORCS Series when
it visits Mesquite MX in Nevada October 5-7.
