Minneapolis, Dec. 14, 2011–The RANGER RZR family added its fourth UTV championship of the year to its impressive racing resume with RJ Anderson and his Walker Evans RZR XP 900 taking their first Lucas Oil Off-Road Racing Series (LOORRS) UTV Unlimited Championship.
Anderson clinched the championship in the final rounds of racing at LOORRS finale in Chandler, AZ. After a few years of falling just short of the championships, Anderson credits the new RZR XP 900 and his sponsors for putting him on top.
“The Polaris RZR XP900 is the best UTV on the market in stock form, combine that with our Walker Evans Racing team and products and now we have the Championship we have wanted for so long. I give a lot of the credit to Kevin Kroyer. We wouldn’t be where we are if it wasn’t for Kevin Kroyer and his Kroyer Race Engines that he built for our Polaris UTV. He squeezed every bit of power he could out of these engines keeping us in front and ensuring that we always started and finished races. This was our last year racing UTV’s at Lucas Oil so it was important to go out and win the championship, and that’s what the team did and because of that I just couldn’t be more pumped than I am right now. I want to also thank each and every member of our team and every sponsor that has helped us along. South Point Casino is a huge part of our program in all classes and their support gets us here every round. Holz Racing Products for building and giving me one of the sweetest handling UTV’s ever built. Goodyear Tires for giving us the grip we need, Mastercraft Safety for keeping me safe especially in my big wreck during the opening rounds of racing at Firebird this season. Of course I need to thank Walker Evans Racing, they along with my Mom and Dad have provided me with this opportunity to go race and do what I love and for that I owe them more than words could ever describe. Muzzys, K&N Filters, Dethrone Racing, Oakley, Utendorfer Design, UTVUnderground.com, Summers Brothers, and of course Polaris Industries, thank you to all of you for all of the parts, support, and encouragement all season long!” said RJ Anderson.
