Polaris rider tops ITP QuadCross field
On a blistering hot day in Surprise, Ariz., Polaris’ Doug Eichner managed to keep his cool.
The temperatures at Arizona’s Speedworld were more than 100 degrees during the day which made for grueling practice sessions. The main events, however, were held under the beautiful night sky.
Eichner won both motos on his way to the Open Pro Class victory in Round 7 of the ITP QuadCross Series on Sept. 20 aboard his Polaris Outlaw 525 S.
Eichner equipped his Outlaw with enhanced power and exhaust from Yoshimura R&D of America Inc., Lonestar Racing’s A-arms, axle, steering stem and hubs, Maxxis tires, FOX Racing Shox suspension, and the one-of-a-kind GPR stabilizer.
Eichner currently holds the points lead in this division with two more rounds remaining in the series.
TJ Dietrich, Yamaha, finished second in both motos, while Nic Granlund, Yamaha, finished fourth in the first moto and third in the second moto to secure the final spot on the podium.
In the Pro 265-450 Class, Can-Am’s Brandon Smith took the checkered flag. Justin Noss, Yamaha, and Dustin Nelson, Yamaha, finished second and third.
