Brandon Schueler and the Jagged X 919 Polaris RZR fought hard all day to capture a solid 4th place finish at this weeks VT Construction Tonopah 250 presented by Polaris RZR. This was probably one of the fastest courses we have seen in the BITD series with UTV’s averaging nearly 55 miles per hour. The conditions were very dusty which made passing difficult. The field of pro turbo UTV’s was loaded with the best talent in the sport evidenced by the great finishing rate, 25 out of 30 cars reaching the finish. The 919 RZR ran perfectly all day with zero mechanical issues. The 32” BFG KR2 utv tires performed with no failures as did the Walker Evans velocity shocks. Just a couple minutes separated the top ten racers. Congratulations to Mitch Guthrie Jr. for capturing the top spot.
The 2017 race season is quickly coming to a close with only one race left in both the BITD and the SCORE series. Brandon Schueler will go into the final BITD race, the Pahrump Nugget 250, with a slender one point lead in raw points. This gives team Jagged X a shot at securing yet another BITD championship but several other racers also have their eye on the prize. The final race should prove to be very exciting. No matter the outcome we are very happy with the team’s performance thus far. While the team has not captured any wins this season they have been consistent with top five finishes all year.
Moving south of the border, all eyes are focused on the 50th running of the famous Baja 1000. This is the final race in the 2017 SCORE racing series. This year racers will be challenging a nearly 1200 mile course starting in Ensenada and winding its way to the finish in La Paz Baja Sur. Jagged X is very happy to have assembled what we believe to be a rock solid team. Brandon Schueler will drive paired with long time Jagged X team mate Miles Martin. We are super excited to have Mitch Guthrie Jr joining the team again this year. Helping Mitch in the right seat will be experienced Jagged Co driver Pat Stone. Rounding out the team we are stoked to have veteran off road racer and former SCORE UTV class champion Matt Parks along with his long time co dog Jason Speiss. A great driving team coupled with a well prepared and experienced chase crew give us a great program for this years epic event.
Looking forward to a great season!
We are proud to have the best companies supporting our effort. We could not compete without the support of POLARIS RZR!
