Tittle Bros. Continue As Contenders
The Tittle brothers out of Florence, Alabama continued during the 2007 MX Nationals to take their Cobras to contention in multiple classes in the top three.
Competing in the 90 Production Senior Class (12-15) Cody Tittle took 6 wins on the season to capture the class championship. Cole Tittle, racing in the 70cc Shifter and 90cc Production Junior classes, secured a second overall in the 70cc class while maintaining a third place in the season standings in the 90cc Production class.Competing in the 90 Production Senior Class (12-15) Cody Tittle took 6 wins on the season to capture the class championship.

Unlimited Battles In Limited
When you're four to six years old and you and your dad have a passion for ATV racing, you can find yourself locked in battles for championships before you can turn the corner on the ripe old age of seven.Nolan Cochran of North Carolina and his Cobra locked horns with Jordan Digby of Mississippi and his Pittman Racing sponsored DRR early on in the MX Nationals.In the end with each rider totaling five wins each, Cochran came out on top over Digby for the 50cc Stock Limited Class championship. The points tally indicated 225 points for Cochran and 196 for Digby. What the points didn't show was the fact that Digby missed five rounds of the MX Nationals due to his competition in the `07 PowerSports ATV Tour. Digby, with six wins at "The Tour" in the 50cc Stock Limited Class, took that class championship by a margin of 56 points over second.
The Man From Michigan
When you knock down nine wins out of twelve rounds you have a pretty good chance of winning a national championship.Alex Szymborski of Michigan did just that during the 2007 MX Nationals season. With 9 event victories posted in his win column in the 70 Production SS (6-11) Class, Szymborski nailed his bid for a national motocross championship title.

Product Review Fox Float Long Travel Air Shocks: Drr Drx Mini Quad
Major aftermarket companies have taken notice to the recent explosion of the mini quad racing scene, and are releasing many new mini quad products. Components that were previously only available for full size applications are now being offered for the youth racer.When the engineers from Fox Racing Shox attended a WORCS race in early 2007, they were amazed number of mini entries. This set off a chain of events that ended in the development and production of a scaled down version of their Fox Float front air shocks, and the Podium X rear.

Due to its popularity, and availability of aftermarket products, Fox developed the shock line the DRR, DRX model mini quads. They currently offer two models, one compatible with DC Motorsports suspension, and one for the ATV 4 Play line. The shocks offer approximately 8.5" of usable wheel travel. The 14" fronts are of an air design, with separate compression and rebound adjustments. The 12.3" Podium X rear shock is a conventional coil spring design with compression and rebound also. The front Float Air shocks retail for $895, and the rear Podium X is $459.

So how do they work? The product engineers from Fox showed up to round 1 of the rugged WORCS Series, and outfitted 3 time 70cc National Champion Buddy Williams DRR machine with the shock package. After making all the initial set ups and adjustments, the young pilot hit the 3 mile desert and motocross course. The suspension looked amazing, as the machine seemed to just glide over the rough terrain. Landings off jumps were smooth and predictable, and the suspension reacted quickly in whoop sections. Cornering was also enhanced, as the bike stayed flat throughout.
The young rider pulled off the track with a big smile on his face, and a first place finish. Ask any top pro, and they will all tell you, the key to going fast, is good suspension, and Fox has set the bar high with this new package.

From Dirt Riders Febuary
DRX50
Braking on the DRR DRX50 is decent. In the front there are dual mechanical drums and in the rear is a single hydraulic disc brake. The front and rear brakes are individually operated using the levers mounted on the handlebars. The brake levers and throttle, much like most minis, are set up nicely for young riders equipped with little operating fingers.
The claimed dry weight of the DRR DRX50 is 232 pounds, which give or take a few pounds is the same as most other ATVs in its class. The machine we tested runs $1974.
Special Features
The DRX50 is equipped with optional daytime running lights, which has got to be the best feature on this machine! All minis should be equipped with lights. Not just for the great convenience, but also for the safety.
The machine is also equipped with a rear brake light that has an optional running light as well.
Full floorboards are on it as well. This is always a good idea, but we like steel, integrated pegs for minis -along with floorboards.
Throttle a quarter of the way before the clutch would engage and get the machine rolling. Once the clutch kicked in the quad was up to a top speed or 25mph in about 20 yards. High revs are required for forward motion, making this CVT’s power band a little difficult for beginner riders, but it is not hard to get used to.
The DRX’s 49cc motor had not trouble pulling our 78-pound test rider around, and it definitely is the fastest stock 50 we have tested. Yes, it is even faster than the LEM Caymen 50. Taking the small hills were no problem, but if the rider stopped on an incline the motor would load up and not torque up the hills. It has great mid-range and top-end power but is weak down low.
Suspension and Setup
Up front, the DRX50 has single A-arms with five-way preload adjustable shocks, and in the rear, there is a standard swingarm that is also set up with a five-way adjustable shock and a solid axle. The suspension is decent, but not quite as good as the LEM. Hitting small jumps around a foot tall were no problem at all with over two inches of travel at both ends.
It handles great! It is very wide and ultra-stable. It is about an inch narrower than Honda’s 300EX. It would be quite a feat to tip this little guy over.
To go with the suspension setup, the DRR DRX50 runs a 16X8-7 Kenda Pathfinder tire on all four wheels. The Kendas did an excellent job of handling the track as well as the trail. They have a very flat footprint, adding to this mini’s great stability.
A kick-starter is good at times, but the left side kick starter pushes the rider’s foot outward, and our test rider Lance Nelson’s size six Alpinestars boot barely fit in them. Electric starters are really reliable these days, so they should come standard.
On the grab bar the machine there is a tether kill switch, which allows the parental unit to jog alongside and kill the machine, should the young rider begin to get him or herself in trouble. Although a good idea, on this high performance machine few parents can run that fast so it wasn’t needed equipment.
The final answer
Besides the name, we think the DRR DRX 50 is a great buy. With its good suspension, and excellent handling the DRX, would be an excellent investment for racing but is still a great mini for cruising the trails with the parents and riding around the homestead.
Starting at $1899 the possibilities of this machine are endless. For more information contact DRR at 330-220-3102.

From WORCS 2007 written by Mark Williams
(June 15-17, Toutle Washington) Round 6 of the WORCS series headed for the words and gave the youth a taste, of hack east style GNCC racing. The heavily wooded Riverdale Raceway had the kids running 3 1/2 miles into the woods, crossing fallen logs, and weaving through narrowly cut passages in the trees.
The Washington natives proved their expertise in these elements by taking the win in 9 of the 14 Youth classes. One rider not particularly-familiar with this type of circuit, #8 Brandon Lugan, aboard an 07 DRX 90 Mod, bested 13 other riders and got his first win of the season - in a convincing fashion, looking like a young  -Bill Ballance along the way. #100, A. J. Bihary of Marysville, WA, had a strong weekend as he piloted his 70cc DRX machine to two 1st place finishes.
After a 2 month intermission, WORCS will travel back-to the woods of Olympia, Washington August 17-19 for Round 7.

9- year- old secures national points title
La Vergne’s Bessire atop ATV circuit
By Tom Kreager
Bobby Bessire doesn’t say much when it comes to his extra-curricular activities.
Bobby, 9, never mentioned a word about his budding ATV racing career to his third- grade classmates at Roy Waldron Elementary School in La Vergne. And racing has engulfed most of his weekends the past year.
“He doesn’t like to brag,” his father James Bessire said.
Bobby won the ATVA FMF Grand National Tourist Trophy Series points championship in the 50cc classification for ages 4-8 on Oct. 26, which was also his birthday. He finished second in the season finale in Brashear, Texas, to claim the championship by a point over Devin Laird of New York.
The tourist Trophy series consists of dirt races around the country that include right and left turns as well as jumps. Most TT events have qualifying heats to determine who will make the main event and starting position.
“That was my goal,” Bobby said, “It’s been pretty fun.”
Bobby’s racing career started about a year ago when James Bessire saw a flier regarding an ATV drag race. Bobby ran the drag race but the family decided driving down a straight strip wasn’t as fun as oval courses. So they began entering different races series. Bobby ran some in a Georgia series and also a national series.
At first the Bessires’ only way of getting the ATV to tracks each week was to simply to take out the middle seats in the family van and load up the small quad. The family eventually purchased a trailer to carry all the racing equipment.
“It was pretty crowded at first,” James Bessire said, “This is just something we all get together and do.”
James Bessire’s knowledge of four wheelers was limited at first. He had to learn about clutches and motors on the fly. “
“I’ve had a crash course on it,” James Bessire said “I did not have a clue at first. It has all been a learning experience.”
“I’m mainly relieved that it’s over. It’s been sort of nerve wracking.…”
