Ricky Dietrich, Acerbis athlete and defending WORCS champion, fought off Ryan Hughes for the win at the WORCS season opener in Phoenix, AZ. The track at Speed World MX Park offered muddy conditions over the weekend, although weather did not play much of a factor. Dietrich took the holeshot, but Hughes eventually snatched up the lead. Dietrich battled back, regained the lead, and did not let it go again. Dietrich surpassed Bobby Garrison in overall points last season to clinch the 2006 WORCS championship, and he plans on holding onto his title this season.
Dietrich will be racing for his next win in Round Two at the Racetown 395 track in Victorville, CA.
Acerbis, a world leader in injection molded plastics for motorsports, is based in Albino, Italy.
