Agua Dulce, Calif.:
The bikes and cars were on separate courses on day 4, but both had another tough day covering nearly 300 total miles.

April 25, 2017 (Agua Dulce, Calif.):
Day 2 of the NORRA Mexican 1000 had both the bikes and the cars running south along the coast all the way to El Huerfanito before turning southwest towards highway one at Chapala. They run a transit stage down the highway until El Crucerito and the Mag 7 pit. The shared course then heads farther west in the dirt until it makes a split. The bikes continue southwest until they reach the Pacific coast. From there they head south until another splash of fuel in the Mag 7 pit on the highway. With still more miles to go, they make their way to the finish in Guerrero Negro. The day 2 total mileage for bikes was 270.80 miles.

Textron-Off-Road-Arctic-Cat-4-21-2017
Like most of you, we were surprised by the announcement that Arctic Cat was acquired by Textron Motors over the winter. The news meant a much-needed infusion of funding for the Cat company, and a whole new level of market share for Textron. Good news for both companies. But what does it mean for the consumer? That news seems to be pretty good, too. Recently, Textron held a meeting of select dealers and press near Dallas, Texas, to update them on plans for the future.
