Cognito’s Justin Lambert takes second

Minneapolis, December 9, 2015-The Best in the Desert (BITD) Henderson 250 would settle who would win the BITD Pro UTV Class Championship. Polaris factory racers Johnny Angal and Justin Lambert would go into the race with the best shot at the championship and would not disappoint.

Angal would not have a great race but, when the dust settled, he would add a season championship to his Baja 1000 win, in just two short years of racing. Lambert, coming off a win in the Blue Water Desert Challenge and Vegas to Reno, would finish fourth in the race and would finish second for the series.

“Polaris would like to congratulate Johnny and Justin on an incredible season,” said Donna Beadle, race team manager for Polaris. “We appreciate the hard work and dedication both racers put into their programs, and look forward to the 2016 season!”
