SCORE International held qualifying last night at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway for the 2015 Bud Light SCORE Baja 1000 that will take place in just a few weeks in Baja California, Mexico. As part of the 2015 SEMA Show week, racers lined up and paraded out to the speedway from the 2015 SEMA Show, which is currently being held at the Las Vegas Convention Center.

As in recent years, the Specialty Equipment Manufacturers Association awarded the top trending vehicles in four key categories at the SEMA Show in Las Vegas.

Bilstein unveiled 13 new products and applications at the SEMA Show this week, including a range covers just about every market segment, specifically light truck and off-road offerings.

Nissan has been building anticipation for its new Cummins-powered Titan XD, and finally we’ll get a chance next week to drive the truck and actually report on it. But at SEMA, we were afforded a few chances to see the “Truck of Texas” in a few different configurations at the 2015 SEMA Show in Las Vegas, with none being more intriguing to us that the Nissan and Cummins collaboration to go for the Land Speed Record with its new Titan XD Triple Nickel.

If you want to get your hands on the new Wrangler Red Rock Concept vehicle, you get better do so quickly. Along with a new Ram Rebel X truck concept, FCA yesterday unveiled a new concept Jeep Wrangler that pays homage to one of the coolest off-road locations in the world – and there will only be 50 of the Wranglers made!

– Polaris Industries Inc. recently introduced another new model to the Polaris RANGER model lineup.  The RANGER CREW 570-6 joins the industry’s No.1 selling utility vehicles (UTV) line for the value-minded consumer looking for a multi-passenger CREW option at a great price.

– Polaris Industries (NYSE: PII), in cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission  and Transport Canada, is issuing a voluntary recall on model year 2015 Polaris RZR 900 and 1000 vehicles due to reports of pinched fuel tank vent lines.  The recall is related to the vehicle’s fuel tank vent line potentially being incorrectly installed during manufacturing, causing it to become pinched, which may cause the fuel tank to pressurize and leak fuel, posing a potential fire hazard.  Polaris estimates that the assembly error occurred in very few vehicles; however, Polaris is issuing a voluntary recall so that all these vehicles could be inspected and any affected vent lines fixed prior to further use.
