Polaris RZR XP 4:

The Parker 250 is the first time aPolaris RZR XP 4 has raced. 1991 was built by Jagged X and driven by Bill Schueler with Craig Scanlon as co-dog. Bill piloted the new XP 4 to a third place finish in the sportsman class and tenth overall. Their day would have been much better without a flat. 1991 was not carrying a spare and the tools needed to change the tire which cost them over 20 minutes.
