San Bernardino, Calif.  – IMS Products riders Dustin Nelson and Beau Baron battled through less-than-ideal conditions Sunday to take first and second place in the opening round of the Yamaha Quad-X Series. Glen Helen Raceway experienced a turbulent weekend of spring showers and chilling temperatures, leading to slick inclines and soggy flats on the USGP track.

Nelson and Baron spent much of the day fighting for the lead, but it was Nelson who managed to pull off both moto wins and secure the overall victory. Baron finished second in both races to take second overall.

The track conditions proved to be difficult for riders of all levels, as pros and amateurs alike found themselves stuck or sideways at various points on the track. Nelson adapted quickly, holding his hole-shot lead throughout the entire first moto. Baron took the hole-shot in the second moto, but a few slips throughout the race allowed Nelson to overtake him for the win.

Justin Jones, in his first ever race in the pro class, finished third in the first moto and fourth in the second moto. He ended in fourth overall. Johnny Shafe, with a pair of seventh place races finished sixth overall, while Josh Row finished ninth overall.

All in all Sunday’s Quad-X Round 1 was a success for IMS riders. Despite the tough conditions, Glen Helen got the series off to a great start with some exciting racing.
