Cognito Motorsports' driver wins Blue Water Desert Challenge

Fresh off a win at Vegas to Reno, Polaris Factory Racer Justin Lambert in the No. 1918 Cognito Motorsports RZR 4 1000 EPS lined up with 24 other Pro UTVs for Best in the Desert’s (BITD) Blue Water Desert Challenge.

The Blue Water Desert Challenge is two days of racing, three laps each day, for a total of 150 miles. The loops are about 25 miles each and the total time for all miles determines finishing position. Day one went flawless for Lambert, who ended up drawing the 21st position but worked his way to a third place finish. The day one finish meant the team would start day two in third place and more than two minutes behind the leader.

Day two, the team started in the second row, and beat the UTV that started with them. The course was even rougher than the previous day with a few graded sections, but luckily the team didn’t have to encounter as much dust as day one given the start position. Lambert took over the first and second place UTVs and kept up the momentum to come finish in first. He beat the next competitor by more than four minutes on corrected time for both days to win the BITD Blue Water Desert Challenge 1900 Class. Polaris Factory Racer Johnny Angal finished in fourth in his RZR XP Turbo.
