Trail & Race Tested - A Checkered Past

I’ve often questioned the logic in large displacement ATVs - especially ones close to or north of 700lbs. on the scale.  Yeah, we all like to have bragging rights when it comes to having the most horsepower, but when does it just become too much of a good thing?  When Polaris released their Scrambler 1000, it was no exception to those thoughts.  And even though initial ride impressions were that it was extremely nimble and forgiving for a one-liter titan of an ATV, it was still a heavy, extremely fast monster.

Kevin Trantham Takes Second Win of the GNCC Season
 Minneapolis, April 1, 2015- Round Three of the GNCC racing series would have Team UXC Racing heading to Morganton, North Carolina looking for another win. Team UXC Racing’s Kevin Trantham and Michael Swift would leave the starting line of the 4x4 Pro Class near the rear of the pack. They would pilot their Scrambler XP 850s towards the front where Trantham would make a pass for the lead. Trantham would hold off the field and maneuver through the lap traffic to take his second win of the season and the overall. Swift would lose a belt near the finish of the race and, with pure dedication, push his vehicle through the finish line to finish sixth.  “I had an awesome day on the Team UXC Racing Polaris Scrambler XP 850. The bike worked amazing, taking everything that the brutal Steele Creek GNCC course had to offer,” said Trantham. “Thanks again to Team UXC Racing/Factory Polaris for giving me the opportunity to race some of the best equipment available.”

Trantham and Swift also secured the top two overall podium positions for the morning ATV race. “We had an awesome day out there. We have worked hard and we did just what we needed to do today putting the Scrambler first and second overall on the podium,” said Swift.

Polaris likes to get a jump on the competition each year with an early release of a new model. Usually that means a high performance machine meant to set the pace for the rest of the season. This year though, they opted to bring out not just one new model but two, and they couldn’t be more different. Get ready for the all-new Sportsman ACE and the Scrambler XP 1000.

Minneapolis, June 27, 2014-Last weekend, Scramblers would run at TORN’s Round 5 in Bulcher, Texas and Round 9, GNCC’s Snowshoe, in Snowshoe, West Virginia. Team UXC Racing’s Chris Robinson would line up his Scrambler XP 1000 at TORN looking for another win.
