SHREVEPORT, LA — April, 2011 – Team High Lifter-Polaris Racing has come out fighting in 2011 with complete domination in the RUV class, taking two top podium spots and one third podium in the first races of the season. The first stop of the CMR Series at Southern Ridge ATV Park in Dozier, Alabama saw Brian Haughton dominate the RUV class as he rode to first place on a 2011 Polaris RANGER RZR XP 900. Haughton, who wears the #50 jersey, also piloted the same RANGER RZR XP 900 during the 2011 High Lifter ATV Mud Nationals, the Granddaddy of all mud racing events, held at Mud Creek Offroad Park in Jacksonville, Texas. The No. 50 jersey placed first in the RUV class of the Polaris Mudda-Cross and third in the RUV class in the Can-Am/BRP Mud Bog. Haughton drove a 2009 Polaris Sportsman 550 to an exciting third-place finish in the bogger class of the Polaris Mudda-Cross. This year marks Haughton’s second year on Team High Lifter-Polaris Racing.
In addition to the recent wins, Team High Lifter-Polaris Racing has added Josh Monroe to its ranks. Hailing from Wylie, Texas, Monroe will wear the #22 jersey. Team High Lifter-Polaris Racing – including Haughton and Wylie – will race in Canton, Texas on April 30.
