    Kevin Trantham Tomahawk GNCC

    After a win in 4×4 Pro at GNCC Round 5, headed to Odessa, NY for GNCC Racing’s Round 6, The Tomahawk, and, once again, put the Scrambler 850 on the Pro 4×4 podium.

    Teammates Michael Swift and Kevin Tratham started start mid-pack and passed the class leader with a lap-and-a-half to go. It was all Swift and Trantham to the line with Trantham finishing first, and also taking the overall, with Swift right behind him crossing the line a full minute and 20 seconds before the third place finisher. Trantham sits in second in class points with Swift in third for the season.

      Polaris-Ranger-DARPA

      The Limited Edition DARPA Polaris Ranger XP 900 EPS and GEM electric vehicles will be used as part of the DARPA Robotics Challenge (DRC) Finals to be held June 5-6, at the Fairplex, in Pomona, Calif.

      The Challenge Finals will have robots perform a number of tasks in a continuous course, simulating what might be encountered in a real disaster situation. DARPA will use the Ranger XP 900 EPS to help demonstrate a robot’s ability to operate and to egress from a vehicle, since they are among the tools commonly on hand in disaster zones.

          John Henry Big Buck GNCC

          The Polaris Factory Racing Teams traveled to Union, SC this past weekend for The Big Buck GNCC where they competed in ATV, Side-by-Side, and Single-Seat Racing.

          Coastal Racing’s XC2 Racer John Henry came into Big Buck looking for redemption after a tough ride at the first round in Georgia. He was able to grab the hole shot off the line for his row to give him clear sailing into the woods. The Big Buck course is very tight and fast with very few passing lanes so Henry had to be very strategic throughout the race to gain ground. His RZR S 900 handled the rough track very well and, on adjusted time, took the win with teammate Sean Bogdan taking second in his RZR.
