RJ Anderson puts new RZR to the test

We can’t ignore the hype of the latest RZR release, especially when a nicely crafted video with a talented and professional driver is put together to make you go “WANT!” UTV Underground stuck RJ Anderson in a new Polaris RZR 1000, affectionately short named the XP1K, and filmed him beating it up over some badass obstacles in an abandoned iron mine. RJ has been around since the beginning of the SxS racing mania and has won many a race in many a series. But enough talk, feast your eyeholes on this piece of candy, just don’t sell off your quads for one of these bad machines.

For Immediate Release: GPS Offroad and Sun F Tires podium at UTV Rally Raid

Jerry_Ran_the_whole_race_without_any_mechanical_issuesLas Vegas, NV (6/14/2013)  Jerry Boling, a veteran of GNCC racing and a front runner at the UTV Rally Raid series put his GPS Offroad/Tireblocks/SunF Tires Polaris XP 900 on the box this weekend at round five of the Rally Raid Series held at Windrock ATV Park in Oliver Springs Tennessee.

The Rally Raid is a relatively new series that is quickly becoming one of the most popular side by side racing series in the southeastern
United states.  Unlike most series that travel from state to state, the Rally Raid takes place on the same track at each of the ten rounds.
Promoters had such success in the first two years that they divided the series into north and south divisions, each running their own ten race series at a different location.  There will be an invite only North verses South Race of Champions event at a date yet to be determined to allow the best of both series to compete for the overall title.

Every race is a four-hour, endurance style format, including two hours in the daylight and two hours at night with no break in between. The side by sides leave the line in pairs every 30 seconds with all three classes competing at the same time. Starting position is determined by a drivers finish at the previous race and scoring is done by adjusted time. In his second year contesting the series, Boling is a regular at the Northern series and after struggling with tire selection early on, finally has his Polaris XP 900 dialed in.  Boling arrived early Saturday morning to pre run the course but a broken axle would cut his practice time short, allowing only enough time to complete a single practice lap.

Honda has a new SxS

If a Rzr and a Rhino had a baby it would be the late-to-the-game Honda Pioneer 700. Red, dump bed, belt driven…perfect for hauling dirt and hay bales. For people who passed up Rhinos and Gators and Mules just waiting for something red that wasn’t Honda’s Big Red, which has been discontinued from the lineup, you are in luck.

Quadcross Northwest Opener at Woodland

Thanks to the great companies (and more need to be added), riders, and families, the Quadcross NW series is a go!

In typical Northwest fashion the spring weather was unpredictable but the turnout did not suffer at the opening round of the 2013 season of Quadcross Northwest. Riders braved rain, hail, gusts of wind and muddy conditions to start the season off this year right. After money fell through for the season, there was a last minute four-week scramble to kick the series off. After several companies came through with cash and families and riders donated what they could the series was announced as going forward. Riders from Oregon, Washington, California, Idaho and Canada came to race, and what racing there was!

Saturday’s racing was a swampy mess and parts of the track were closed after eating several 450s. This shortened lap times to just over a minute for most classes, but riders were frustrated and it took one victim. PitTraffic.com rider Chris Frazier, who moved into the Production A class this year had a stellar first moto Saturday, taking the win over Colton Wehrman and Ben Hottel. Unfortunately Chris crashed in Moto 2 and broke his pelvis in 3 places resulting in an ambulance ride and a hospital stay. This left Wehrman open to take the win followed by Joshua Taylor and Ben Hottel.
