2013-rzr_xp_900_7-23-13Although information on 2014 Polaris models was not to be released to the public until next week, Off-Road.com sister site ATV.com uncovered information about a potential new RZR that could be a 2014 model. What’s notable is its industry-leading horsepower figures.

According to Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) figures releases earlier this month, Polaris’ new RZR XP 1000 and XP 4 1000 will produce a whopping 107 horsepower from the 999cc engine that will power the units. We assume this will be a 2014 model, but we don’t have confirmation from Polaris since they have not released any information on 2014 units. As ATV.com notes regarding the U.S. EPA test figures, “Power output was listed at 80 kilowatts, which translates to a whopping 107 horsepower.”

Note: The images included in this post are of the 2013 models. No official information has been released from Polaris regarding its 2014 units at present.

yokley-moutaineer-polaris-6-19-13Minneapolis – After placing off the podium at The John Penton, William Yokley was back on top in his Polaris / Coastal / CST / National Guard / Yoshimura / Yokley Racing RZR XP 900 taking the win at The Mountaineer, in Masontown, West Virginia. Yokley’s teammate, Scott Kiger, steered his RZR XP 900 to a third place finish. RZRs finished in the top three spots in the XC1 Modified class.

Yokley and Kiger both started well and tackled the rocky terrain by choosing good lines. Their fast, consistent laps gave them both podium finishes and put Yokley back on top in class points going into the summer break, with Kiger sitting in striking distance in third.

The next GNCC UTV Race is Powerline Park, in St. Clairsville, Ohio, on October 20.

Yokley Racing is sponsored by Polaris Industries, Coastal Racing, CST, Army National Guard, Yoshimura, Holz Racing Products, OMF, Walker Evans, Fluidyne, Beard Seats, Tireballs, SustainU and Big Country Powersports.

BITD-silver-state-5-6-13Minneapolis, May 6, 2013–After a win at the last Best in the Desert Race, The Mint 400, Holz Coastal Racing’s Scott Kiger and Mark Holz in their No. 1934 RZR XP 900 would line up for the Canidae Tap It Silver State 300 with hopes to make it two in a row and their second Silver State 300 win. When the dust settled, they would not disappoint.

With Cognito Powersports and their RZR XP 4 900 getting the nod to start first, the teams would have to work hard through the typical high-speed, dusty conditions to overtake the leader. Coastal Racing would start right after Brandon Schueler’s Jagged X No. 1919 RZR XP 4 900 setting up a speed dual to take over the lead. With Kiger driving the morning half, he would pass Schueler and all but one of the remaining cars that started in front of him, Cognito. Holz would take over for the second half of the race and suffer a couple flats moving him back to third, and putting the No. 1919 in second behind Cognito. With Cognito sitting with a 7-minute lead and Jagged X and Coastal running neck-and-neck, Cognito would suffer a clutch failure ending their reign and setting up an exciting finish between Jagged X and Coastal Racing. In the last miles of the race, Holz in the Coastal car would make his move finish first with Schueler in the No. 1919 finishing second.

STI-GNCC-Race-Report-4-24-13Hunting season opened early this year in Union, South Carolina. In only the second UTV event on the 2013 Grand National Cross Country schedule, STI Roctane XD tires bagged a Big Buck. It was brought down by John Yokley and co-driver Ellen Yokley. The weapon used was a Polaris RZR, locked and loaded by Big Country Powersports.

This Big Buck did not surrender easily. The Big Country entry was accidentally spun out by another competitor in the first turn in the early moments of this hour-long race, leaving it in last place heading into the woods for the first time. Big Country was persistent in its pursuit, however, and stalked its first-place prey lap after lap, never losing track with its 26x9R-14 STI Roctane XDs.

By the end of the pursuit, the Yokleys had caught and dropped a herd of 20 XC1 Modified cars to not only put a bullseye in the target but pull away by over two minutes at the checkered flag. Big Country snared first overall out of 48 side-by-sides — a big game trophy in anyone’s book.

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.

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.
