Racer signs to ride through 2009 season
Polaris Industries of Medina, Minn. has extended its relationship with factory racer and professional ATV racing icon Doug Eichner, calling for Eichner to race the Polaris Outlaw in WORCS and other selected races through the 2009 race season.
“Doug brought us our first professional level win last year, and delivered a total of eight professional victories during the 2007 season,” says Eric Nault, Polaris ATV race manager. “He continues to be at the front of the pack just about every weekend on Polaris Outlaws.”
Eichner, who finished second overall in the 2007 WORCS series, has been highly successful in demonstrating the racing ability of the Outlaw models. He started the 2007 season successfully with the Outlaw 525 IRS and continued his winning ways aboard the Outlaw 525 S, which was introduced mid-season. Eichner will soon ride the Outlaw 450 MXR due to a change in racing requirements at the WORCS series, and will race the Outlaw 525 S at select ITP Quadcross events.
Eichner is the current points leader in the SxS class for the WORCS series, where he has driven his Polaris Ranger RZR with winning results.
“It has been very exciting to work with Polaris, which is focused on becoming a leader in the sport industry and has the right machines to do just that,” says Eichner.
