San Clemente, CA
March 16th was the first ever UTV World championship present by Polaris RZR held in Laughlin, Nevada. I loaded up both Polaris Rzr’s into the trailer and headed out to Laughlin early Friday morning to register and go threw Contingency. Once we arrived I decided to race my RZR 900 in the 70mile short course race. After registration I took the RZR to tech. At contingency I was happy to spend sometime with SuperATV, MTX Audio, and GMZ Race Products. We passed tech and was off to the Hotel for the drivers meeting. At the end of the drivers meeting I saw that I was picked 4th start position. Saturday was race day, they started the desert race first and my short course race at 2pm. I watched the race before mine, looking for the fastest line on the track and took a quick look over the RZR before it was time to line up. I started behind the RZR 1000s and the starts were different than what I was used to. They had us turn off the engines and once the green flag drops you start and go. I got a good start and I was off , hitting the worst dust I have ever raced on. I started to get some good vision after passing a few 1000’s in the dust. I came pass the main pit and did not stop everything felt great. Going into the motor cross section I was running 2nd in the production 900 class. I almost made it to lap 3 until I drove a wheel and tire off. I sheared off some parts on the driver side rear, which ended my day, but I still placed 4th in the class. I look forward to getting the RZR fixed and making it stronger for the next race.
I want to thank Joey D, UTV Underground, Mad Media and BITD over 120+ UTV entries. It was one of the best races so far this season!
