Polaris-RZR-SCORE-San-Felipe-3-12-13Minneapolis, March 11, 2013 – Thirteen side-by-sides, including Jagged X’s Matt Parks and Jason Spiess in their 1932 Jagged X/Polaris RZR XP 4 900, lined up for the first SCORE race of the season, the San Felipe 250. The race was the inaugural race for the “Pro UTV” class in the series and when the dust settled, Parks and Spiess would take the checkered flag and be one of only two side-by-sides to finish from the class.

The San Felipe 250 is notorious for being the roughest race in North America with endless whoops, deep silt and rocky sand washes. But after Parks did his pre-run, he knew that this would be a race of survival.

Minneapolis, Minn. – Polaris Industries Inc (NYSE: PII) has joined General Tire and a host of dedicated sponsors in support of “The Great American Off-Road Race” – The 2013 General Tire Mint 400 Presented by Polaris. Polaris is a global sales leader in off-road vehicles, and its RZR® line is the leader in innovation in sport UTV design worldwide. Based in Medina, Minnesota, Polaris has been manufacturing vehicles for nearly 60 years and is the preferred UTV platform for desert off-road racing. There are more RZRs entered in The Mint 400 than any other manufacturer, and Polaris provides factory support for Jagged X Racing and Coastal Racing.

“We are thrilled to have Polaris as the presenting sponsor for the 2013 Mint 400,” said Mint 400 CEO Matt Martelli. “The UTV Class has exploded in growth over the past few years because they are affordable to campaign and virtually race-ready from the showroom floor. You can literally go buy a Polaris RZR from a dealer – and with a few modifications be out racing the next weekend! It’s really exciting to watch people get into these vehicles and then become die-hard off-road race fans!”

Shingle Springs, CA – Just days away from the toughest UTV race in the world, the anticipation rises as Jon Crowley and Jagged X have partnered, tested and prepared for an intense battle through the California desert, scaling rock waterfalls and charging major hill climbs aboard their 2013 Polaris RZR XP Orange Madness Limited Edition.

The 5th annual King of the Hammers (KOH) UTV extreme endurance race held on Thursday, February 7th at the Johnson Valley OHV area, will take Jon and his accomplished co-driver, Blake Van de Loo, through 115 miles of body jarring, equipment pounding terrain. The 2013 race course is already touted to be the most grueling course ever created by the King of the Hammers mastermind, Dave Cole; and that’s exactly why both off-road champions, Jon Crowley and the Jagged X team, have combined to make a powerhouse attempt to claim the King of the Hammers title.

After 14 days of racing and more than 8000 km covered, Willy Alcaraz and the team Nicolas Du-clos / Sébastien Delaunay are among the 67% of competitors who completed the race! They finished respectively 40th and 56th in the overall ranking.

But that’s not all they achieved….

For his second Dakar race alone in his RZR, Willy Alcaraz does it again, winning both the T3 and SOLO Car classes. He also improved his position by two ranks overall versus 2012.
