MPolaris RZR® Factory Racing is celebrating two class wins at the inaugural SCORE Baja 400. RZR Factory Driver Wes Miller and co-driver Donny Powers completed the single-loop 400-mile race in 10 hours and 49 seconds to earn the Pro UTV Forced Induction win. RZR Sponsored Athlete Kaden Wells and co-driver Travis Wells clinched the victory in the Pro UTV NA class.
Miller’s Bomb Squad Racing brought home the win over the weekend with four Polaris RZR drivers finishing in the top five of the Pro UTV Forced Induction class. RZR Privateer Scott Trafton rounded out the podium with a third-place finish, while RZR Factory Drivers Brandon Schueler and Wayne Matlock finished fourth and fifth, respectively.
In the Pro UTV NA Class, Wells had a rough start through
some deep whoops in the first section that threw his machine off course,
hitting a tree and sticking a broken branch through the right rear tire
sidewall. After performing a quick tire change, Wells was back on course
running fast. At mile marker 180, Wells got car sick but was able to battle
through it for 50 miles until handing over the wheel to his father, Travis Wells,
who brought the machine home for the win. The victory places Wells first in the
series points standings. Wells was joined on the podium by RZR Privateer Joe
Bolton, who finished second.
“The SCORE Baja series is one of the most
challenging single-loop races in all of off-road racing, so to have our team
bring home two wins at this inaugural 400 event speaks volumes to their hard
work, preparation and ability to overcome the rugged terrain,” said Kyle Duea,
vice president of ORV Marketing for Polaris Off Road. “We celebrate the wins,
but know our teams quickly move on and begin to prepare for the next race.”
To date, Polaris RZR Factory Racing
has secured six wins and eight podiums in the 2019 SCORE race series. RZR Factory Racing will look to continue its winning ways
October 5 and 6 at the LOORS Golden State Off Road Nationals in San Bernardino,
