The RANGER RZR is the only Side by Side to finish longest desert race
Minneapolis, August 29, 2007 The Polaris RANGER RZR proved its grit , dependability and incredible staying power in the desert this past weekend when it was the only side-by-side to finish the grueling 567 miles of the Best in the Deserts Series Vegas to Reno race. The RANGER RZR was built and piloted by Jagged X and finished the race in just over 21 hours. The RZR continues to show its awesome combination of power, performance, and reliability whether on the trail or the track, said Craig Scanlon, product line sales manager for the Polaris Side x Side Division. Polaris could not be more proud of the passion, preparation and dedication of our partners at Jagged X. We would like to thank them for helping us reach this milestone in RANGER RZR racing history.
The Best in the Deserts Vegas to Reno race is the longest off-road race in the United States encompassing 567 miles. Defeating the deserts punishing 105 degree temperatures, deep silt, rocks, and rutted Nevada moonscape, the RANGER RZR out-ran and out-lasted ten other starters.
This finish brings credibility to The UTV class and proves the Polaris RZR as a great off road performance machine, said Bill Schueler, owner of Jagged X. Jagged X is proud to represent Polaris and would like to thank all who helped with our racing program. Desert racing is one of the most demanding motorsports on both equipment and drivers. We are proud of our crew and cant wait for the next race.
Jagged Xs four-man team included Brandon Schueler, Justin Schueler, Bill Schueler and Blake Van De Loo. This win rockets the Jagged X Team into a leadership position of the Best in the Desert Racing series. The team was sponsored by Jagged X, Polaris, Cart Wheelin Magazine, CR Designs, Mountain States Contracting,Vision X Lighting, OMF Performance, Jet Trim Seats, DJ Safety, C.E.M. and MTA .
