Polaris ACE 900 SP Podiums at Colorado 250
Racing against 1000-class UTVs, Team UXC Racer Torey Rush piloted his Polaris ACE 900 SP to a second-place finish at the Core Series’ 4-hour Colorado 250 this past weekend.
Rush drew the No. 2 starting position in the UTV 1000 Pro Class. He got out front early and held the lead until the first long straight away about three miles into the race.
“I kept pushing the ACE and held second until first place blew a belt about an hour in, I got out front and kept pushing, giving the ACE all it had to give,” says Rush.
Rush was able to hold first until the second pit stop about three hours in. He was able to get back out and hold the second spot all the way to the checkered flag.
“The new ACE 900 SP worked flawlessly, handled the big jumps with ease and the new dual sway bars took the high speed corners just like a big machine,” says Rush. “The longer I raced the more confident I felt. I even ended up lapping a few competitive UTVs.”
