Mesa, AZ September 4, 2013 — If you missed DragonFire’s latest “Project X” build on the Destination Polaris TV show earlier this year, it is time to set your DVR for the repeat of the ReadyForce episode that airs this Sunday, September 8th, on Fox Sports Net. The third rig built for the popular TV show is the biggest, most ambitious DragonFire build to date and based on a Polaris Ranger rather than the RZR of previous seasons.
“Research indicates the vast majority of UTVs are actually used for ‘utility’ applications rather than racing,” says DragonFire Social Media Manager Chris Moore. “So this time around, we concentrated on real world practicality rather than adding some bling to a RZR racer.”
