Cognito Motorsports Silver State 300

Polaris RZRs dominated the Best in the Desert’s Silver State 300 in Nevada. Polaris Factory Racers Justin Lambert and Co-Driver Jeremiah in their Cognito Motorsports No. 1918 RZR XP 4 1000 took first, while Scott Kiger and Mark Holz earned second in their No. 1934 Coastal Racing RZR XP 1000, and Branden Sims and Tim Krauss finished third in their No, 1913 RZR.

Cognito debuted its new RZR XP 4 1000 in the race with only 50 miles of testing and starting in the fifteenth position. Around RM55 when the dust settled, Cognito was able to start picking up spots on their race to the top. Midway through the race they were five minutes from the leaders and were able to sneak past them for their first BITD win. Polaris RZRs would take the seven top spots out of 20 Pro Riders with Coastal Racing in second, Sims in third, Jagged X’s Schueler in fourth, Jeff Obering in fifth, Jagged X’s Scanlon in sixth and John Angal in his inaugural race in seventh.

The next Best in the Desert Race is Vegas to Reno, August 14-16.
