Minneapolis, March 31, 2011– The Polaris RANGER RZR models hit the bogs at Highlifter’s Mud Nationals and came away victorious in both the Mud Bog and Mudda Cross RUV classes.
Team SuperATV.com took the Mud Bog RUV class with their RANGER RZR 800 with Team Highlifter Polaris Racing’s Brian Haughton taking third in a RANGER RZR XP 900. The Mud Bog RUV class is a race of durability that takes the racers through 150 ft of very thick mud.
The Mudda Cross RUV race consisted of two laps around a 150-feet oval filled of mud and water which tested durability, power and handling. Team Highlifter Polaris Racing’s Haughton put his RANGER RZR XP 900 through its paces taking top honors.
