Jeremy Merrell met Parker at our Maserati of Anaheim Hills, After briefly discussing our recent Mint 400 desert race and showing photos of the Polaris RZR he was blown away, intrigued and wanted a taste of the off-road experience.
Jeremy Merrell remembered Parker’s enthusiasm and excitement about getting a chance to go off-road in the race RZR, so he contacted Parker that evening to see if he would like to go out for the shock test that next morning, Jeremy learned Parker had traveled to Brazil, Sweden, France, Germany, Holland and Norway, doing fitness shows, magazine shoots and autograph signings over the past few weeks. Although Parker was exhausted from traveling, jet lagged and tired he wasn’t going to pass up an opportunity to jump in the racecar and experience the scenic desert of California in an offroad race machine.
The Merrell brothers picked up Parker in Norco and headed North up the 15 freeway after a two hour drive they arrived Lucerne Valley, Ca. After winding down 45 minutes of rocky, windy, dirt roads they approached the dry lakebed and decided this would be a great place to set up for testing. The temperatures outside were cold and storm clouds were quickly approaching, they decided they needed to move quickly before the rain started coming down.
Once the Polaris RZR was unloaded, Parker and Jason Merrell suited up put on their helmets; radio checked and took off for the first test run. The Walker Evans Velocity series shocks were soaking up the whoops, and the Polaris RZR race UTV was running great.
After they pulled back into camp Parker was extremely impressed and excited about his new off-road experience and wants to get a Polaris RZR 4 seat for the family and can’t wait to go off-roading with the Wolfpack crew again soon.
