Before the Polaris RZR, there wasn’t any Side x Side dedicated to high-performance recreation, but with the sporty RZR 800, Polaris had an instant hit and the race was on.  Since then other manufacturers have entered the game and each new model has seen huge gains in power, suspension, and performance.  Not everyone needs or even wants huge horsepower and desert taming suspension just to cruise the local trails, though, and for those riders, Polaris has a unique option.

Minneapolis, Feb 11, 2013–Since its original debut in 2008, the King of the Hammers (KOH) race has been deemed the toughest off-road race in the world. This year’s course of 115-miles of open desert racing and huge rock trails proved to be the most-difficult course yet. So hard, that Race Organizer, Dave Cole didn’t think a UTV could do it. When the dust settled only three of the 35 UTVs entered would prove Cole wrong, all being RZR XP 900s! Mitch Guthrie and his co-driver Mitch Guthrie Jr., who has won four KOH races and took second once, would take the checkered flag with his Holz Racing RZR XP 900, with Jon Crowley and Blake Van de Loo, in their Jagged X-supported RZR XP 900 taking second, and Matt Enochs in the Team Nasty RZR would finish third.
