Mark Holz and Matt Parks pilot RZR to victory
Holz Racing topped the field in the grueling Best in the Desert Series during the Terrible Town 250 in Primm, Nev., April 18, 2009.
To date the 2009 Holz Racing Polaris Ranger RZR had already proven itself on the short track World Off-Road Championship Series (WORCS) races, winning two of three events. But with 73 miles of untamed desert looming on the horizon, owner Mark Holz teamed up with Matt Parks and stretched the legs of the Kroyer Racing Engine powered RZR in the Best of the Desert UTV class.
Fourteen UTVs began the Terrible Town race with only 11 making it to the finish line. Faced with uncharted desert, dry creek beds and rock-strewn climbs, the Maxxis tires outfitted Holz RZR averaged just over 39 miles-per-hour, finishing the race in just over 1 hour, 52 minutes.
“The race was a good change of pace for us,” says Mark Holz. “A longer race is great for more extensive durability testing of our performance parts and to evaluate different calibration ideas we have in mind for our Fox shock package.”
The Best in the Desert Series plays host to world-class off-road racing events throughout the southwestern United States. Last year, more than 4,000 racers competed in variousBest in the Desert race events, conquering some of the most unpredictable and challenging desert terrain in North America.
