Thats sounds pretty rad man...... I just took a ride in RZR for the first time today. I think I may be getting rid of our Rhino for one of those things.

Jagged X Polaris RZR finishes 2007 V2R

The crew at Jagged X worked many late nights to get the #1919 Polaris Ranger RZR ready for this years running of the Best In The Desert Vegas To Reno race. Our team arrived at tech and contingency on Thursday in Las Vegas to find 10 other very qualified and experienced UTV teams ready to do battle in the Nevada desert.

Friday morning we watched patiently as the field of over 150 trucks and buggies left the starting line ahead of the UTV’s and proceeded to tear up the already brutal race course.
At nearly 12:00pm the UTV class finnaly left the line with temperatures already nearing 100 degrees . The #1919 RZR was 6th to begin the 565 mile trek to Reno. Brandon Schueler started the race with Blake Van de Loo as co- pilot. Our RZR was running very strong and Brandon was able to work his way into a several minute lead entering pit 5 With a quick once over and some fuel and water for the drivers they left pit 5 still in the lead. We watched as the care began to dissapear in a cloud of dust. Just aabout ¼ mile out Blake radioed “ we lost a shock” I replied “you blew a shock?” He said “ NO WE LOST A SHOCK “ or it left us “ anyway no shock on the right rear. Blake ran back to the pit and took a spare shock back to the car and he and Brandon were able to put the car back in action, but not quick enough to hold the first position. Now in second They were trying to make up ground and by the next pit The 1908 combs car had encountered some problems of their own and we were back in front. The 1909 (The other combs car) however had been closing in and by was able to get by us just past pit 6. Jagged was holding their ground but staying in clean air as the sun went down. Our car was very late into pit 11 due to another broken shock. Pit 11 also required some other fairly major maintenance. We were out of the pit just 30 minutes ahead of pit closing time but pretty far back from the current leader 1909 Combs car. Pit 11 to 12 was a rough one and it took a toll on the 1909 Rhino breaking a steering spindle and ultimately taking them out of the race. By this time We were told that we were the last UTV still running ,we later found out the the 1941 Jagged Built Rhino was actually still running but then encountered a major tranny failure and was also out between 11 & 12. The rest of the race was a balancing act to stay ahead of the pit closing and keep the car in tact. As the sun came up we were on our way to pit 15 with just enough time to get the job done and be the first and onlu UTV to finish this years race.

Huge thanks go out to everyone who helped us out . Thank you Blake Van de Loo and and Mountain States Contracting for driving, navigating,wrenching,and for the use of your equipment and chase truck.
