    2013 Can-Am Commander SportIt’s been rumored for a while, but we can now confirm that BRP will be unveiling a brand new Can-Am Commander at the Sand Sports Super Show in Torrance, Calif. on Sept. 14, 2012.

    We thought Can-Am would be looking to introduce a four-seat Commander, but the Canadian manufacturer released a teaser image that looks very much like a machine aimed at the Polaris RZR XP 900 and Arctic Cat Wildcat 1000. We put together a comparison photo of the teaser image next to the Commander 1000 X to give you an idea of the differences.

      Moose 901X ATV TireMoose Utility Division continues to release scores of new off-road products. The most recent addition is the 901X 6-ply ATV tire.

      “This tire offers high performance in the mud, snow, and sand thanks to the offset V tread design and side lugs,” Moose says in a release.

      According to Moose, the lugs are designed to sit recessed in the center for added surface and better traction, and the pebble design in between the lugs make it easier to clean between the lugs when riding in sticky clay or mud. As well, the 901X’s 6-ply construction is designed to offer superior durability and puncture resistance.

      The 901X Tire (starting at $89.95) is now available from your local Parts Unlimited dealer. To find a dealer near you or to check out other new products from Moose Utility Division, visit MooseUtilities.com.

            Costal Racing Scott KigerBest in the Desert’s Vegas to Reno race is the longest and toughest off-road desert race in the United States and it was dominated by Polaris RZR UTVs.

            In the starting field of more than 20 side-by-sides for the 534-mile race, was Jagged X’s Brandon Schueler with co-pilot Cody Muir in the No. 1919 RZR XP 4 900; Jagged X’s Matt Parks, Jason Spiess and Landon Kobruck and the No. 1932 RZR XP 4 900; Jagged X’s Bill Schueler and Polaris Marketing and Sales Director Craig Scanlon in the almost-stock 1991 RZR XP 4 900; and Scott Kiger’s Holz Coastal Racing No. 1934 RZR XP driven by Kiger, Mark Holz and William Yokley.

            Jagged X Matt ParksWhen the dust settled, Coastal Racing would take its first Vegas to Reno win with the fastest time ever for a side-by-side in under 12 hours, and ahead of the trucks and cars. Thirty minutes later, Parks crossed the finish line second with the fastest second place finish for a side-by-side. Finishing fourth and driving the entire race himself, was Bill Schueler, with co-pilot Scanlon, and the almost-stock RZR XP 4. The No. 1991 has raced successfully all season and its fourth place finish in such a challenging race is a true testament to the ability of the RZR side-by-side vehicles. Unfortunately, five-time Vegas to Reno winner, Brandon Schueler, encountered a freak incident with the No. 1919 where a rock knocked off the oil sending unit for the oil pressure gauge and pumped oil out of the car leaving it unable to continue.
