Minneapolis, December 10, 2009–With only 24 points separating the top three teams heading into last weekend’s BITD Henderson Fabtech Desert Classic, the Jagged X/Polaris Racing team had little room for error. When the dust cleared, the second place finish was enough to secure the Jaggged X team the “1900 class” championship with their RANGER RZR for the third time in a row. The feat continues to prove just how dominating Jagged X and their RANGER RZR have been in the series.
“This racing season has been exciting season for us and for the entire UTV class,” said Bill Schueler of Jagged X. “The points chase has been anyone’s guess all year long. Overall this has been a great season for Jagged X and Polaris Racing. We are looking forward to next season which begins in just a few short weeks back at Parker, Ariz.”
After a strong start at Parker this year, Jagged X fell short at the next two races but then turned it around winning the “Vegas To Reno” and the “Silver State 300.” They ended the season with two second place finishes at the “Primm GP” and at the “Fabtech Classic” and clinched their third consecutive BITD Championship.
“Polaris would like to congratulate Jagged X on another great year of racing,” said Craig Scanlon, director of product line sales for Polaris. “Jagged X has proven three-fold that the RANGER RZR is a force to be reckoned with in the desert and Polaris would like to thank the team for all of their hard work and dedication.”
Jagged X is sponsored by Polaris Industries, MTA West, Elka Suspension, CR Designs, S&S Off Road, Simpson Products, ATL Fuel Systems, Tire Balls, Vision X Off Road, OMF Performance, Affordable Powder Coat, Robby Gordon Off Road, Trophy Engineering.
