Polaris is developing a new RZR Factory Racing program beginning with the first-ever purpose-built race ready UTV. Three race-ready UTV’s will be piloted by up and coming drivers. The factory team will include Austin Weiland, Brock Heger and Cayden MacCachren.
The team will have support from a hand-picked management team and crew from proven industry veterans. The factory program will also include hands on support from Polaris engineering and development. The team also comes with sponsorship from top brands that share the same commitment to premium quality and performance as Polaris does.
“Backed by nearly 70 years of innovation, Polaris is not only responsible for literally inventing the performance side-by-side category, it also has a long and storied history of winning at the highest levels of off-road racing, so it simply makes sense that we’d be driving the industry forward yet again with the first, full-fledged UTV class factory racing program,” said Reid Wilson, Vice President, Polaris Off Road Recreation. “Racing is integral to everything we do, driving performance innovations that inspire the products we bring to showroom floors – ultimately pushing the industry forward and advancing the consumer side-by-side market. We’re absolutely chomping at the bit to now showcase Polaris’ engineering prowess and ingenuity through our new Polaris Factory Racing team.”
Team operations will be based in Vista, California and staffed with 12 full time employees. Races will include SCORE and Best in the Desert.
