WORCS Racing lost its semi trailer in a fire last Saturday while the group was traveling from its home in Utah to a race in Washougal, Wash.
The organization reported on its Facebook page that every tool, computer, trophy, banner and wood stake was lost in the blaze. “The race semi was an iconic symbol for WORCS and carried the very lifeblood of our program,” the Facebook post said.
The WORCS staff, racers, sponsors and the Huffman family at Washougal MX park have stepped up to make this weekend’s motorcycle and ATV races at Washougal happen.
WORCS expects a rebuild to last a couple months.
“On behalf of the WORCS staff, I want to thank everyone for the calls and support,” the post said. “When you come this weekend just say hi and enjoy the best off-road racing in the world at the epic Washougal motocross park. Having our racing family around us this weekend is the best step forward. WORCS will rise from the ashes, and it begins this weekend. See you at the races.”
