Mitch Guthrie – 1st Overall at 2012 UTV King of The Hammers

Mitch Guthrie, #555 took the overall win at 2012 UTV King of the Hammers in his Polaris RZR XP.  Guthrie ran a flawless race, keeping a fast pace that gained momentum with each race mile.  Todd Stephenson in the #1944 Artic Cat Wildcat took 2nd, making it an impressive first run for the Artic Cat Wildcat.

Kane Fraser, a paraplegic, decided to take on the 2011 Tecate SCORE Baja 1000 in a Polaris RZR XP 900 after watching Dust to Glory multiple times and being inspired by the Man in Motion, Rick Hansen. “This was our first Baja 1000, our first time racing, and for me my first time racing in any sport ever,” said Kane Fraser.  The team would add over 100 miles to their total mileage after a wrong turn, and in turn would add hundreds of followers as they headed towards their ceremonial finish at 2am Sunday morning, 36 hours after the start Friday afternoon. “We wanted to finish, we didn’t care, nothing would stop us.  We kept going and did finish! We were a little bug eyed, but we finished,” said Heino Seibert from Spectra Power Sports, Kane Frasers Co-Driver.   Kane Fraser went into this adventure with three goals, “In terms of what I wanted to accomplish, for me number one was to raise $25,000 for the Rick Hansen Foundation.  Second, is to create awareness of the abilities of people with disabilities.  And third, to inspire one disabled person to really move ahead with their goals and strive to achieve their goals, because as long as you try and try you will succeed, you just have to keep moving forward.”

Over the Holidays of 2010 Fraser was watching Dust to Glory when he told his wife Cara that this is what he wanted to do next.  She was less than enthused, but he was reminded what his friend Dennis Beebe had often said, “It is not about the disability, it is about the possibilities.” He enlisted the help of his friends, and with never even being in the desert, much less racing, they set off on this awesome journey.  “We were super naive, but we learned a lot along the way, and got laughed at a lot which was fun,” Kane said with a smile. “In the eleven months prior to the race, a lot of people helped 1802 work towards the goal, even up to the day before in Ensenada when we were working on the RZR.  Without all the help from these people the team would have been less prepared and may not have completed the race.  I would just like to thank everyone on the team for the contributions, it took all of us to make this happen!”

King Shocks has just completed extensive desert testing of their new performance coilover shock kit for the Polaris, RZR, XP900, according to a press release from the company. The XP900 is delivered as a long travel machine direct from the factory yet King’s race proven damping performance takes it to a whole new level. King’s Performance series shocks boost wheel travel from 14 to 15.5 inches in the rear and from 13.5 to an incredible 16.5 inches in front. The increased wheel travel, when combined with King’s highly refined damping control, lets you tap every ounce of performance from the RZR and its potent 88 horsepower, 900cc, twin EFI powerplant.

King Shocks test drivers were amazed by the modified RZR’s ability to devour the roughest terrain at speeds approaching that of many purpose-built racecars. King’s shock kit for the XP900 delivers unparalleled high-speed performance without sacrificing comfort or control at lower speeds. If you want the ultimate performance from your RZR, you need the durability and performance that King Shocks can provide.

Two Brothers Racing recently announces the release of its 2011 Polaris Ranger RZR800 Triple M7 Full Exhaust System. Three mufflers is a unique design, but the company says it discovered that the powerful big twin in Ranger RZR is really, really loud when you uncork it with a standard racing exhaust system. The solution is the triple canister system shown. Two Brothers says with three mufflers you have all the power increase advantages of a free-flowing racing exhaust system but the sound output is nicely muted. And the looks are stunning.

Whether you are on the racetrack, trail riding, woods riding or just having fun in the sand this triple exhaust performs. Performance gains are seen and felt in every part of the powerband. We are sure that when you pull this exhaust system out of the box, install it on your ATV, and feel the performance you will agree that it is The Absolute Top Level™.

Through extensive testing and racing developments we have produced a winning combination of Top Level Performance with our new RZR Triple M-7 Exhaust System. This system comes supplied with 3 Sound Suppression P1-X PowerTips that will keep this in check.

Two Brothers Racing’s new RZR800 systems feature the same high-quality components, materials, design and construction you’ve come to expect from the Absolute Top Level supplier. Get up close and personal with these new systems at your local TBR Dealer, or visit www. twobros.com.
