A HISTORY LESSON: TY DAVIS WINS 3 WORCS CHAMPIONSHIPS…IN ONE YEAR!
Back in 2003 the WORCS series had switched from a West Coast based off-road series, to separate East and West championships and would feature one overall champion. Bill Gusse set up the eastern venues while Dave Hamil and his crew handled the west. The finale was held at Cooperland (Guy Cooper’s track), which all hoped would feature a generous mix of terrain that both sides of the country would enjoy. Heading into the Cooperland finale Ty had already wrapped up the Western Championship, and needed to finish in front of Brian Garrahan, who was knee deep in the Eastern Points chase. Lance Smail was the big winner of the day, but Ty Davis finished third and won all three overall championships that went with the WORCS series.
