Polaris Industries Inc. Challenges Polaris Dealers to ALS Ice Bucket Challenge


Minneapolis (August 22, 2014) – Today, Polaris Industries Inc.’s (NYSE:PII) Chairman and CEO, Scott Wine, completed the Ice Bucket Challenge, joining in the viral campaign to raise awareness and funds for ALS. After accepting the challenge from Dan Ariens, President and CEO of Ariens, Wine in turn nominated Bahram Akradi, Founder and CEO of Lifetime Fitness, Michael Guyette, President and CEO of Blue Cross Blue Shield MN, and the entire Polaris dealer network. Wine noted in his video that if 100 Polaris dealers accept the challenge, Polaris will donate an additional $10,000 towards ALS research.

“Polaris has a long history of giving back and is proud to support this effort,” said Wine. “We encourage our strong network of dealers to accept the nomination or donate to an ALS charity.”

ITP SxS Pros Earn Off-Road Endurance Racing Podiums

Pratt Brothers Win Heartland Challenge; Three in Top Five at Vegas To Reno

Ontario, California, August 21, 2014 - Team ITP Pro-level side-by-side racing teams competed in three different off-road series over the August 15-17 weekend, earning several podiums along the way. At the 2014 Heartland Challenge in Iowa, Marcus and Mouse Pratt took the UTV Open class win on ITP tires. At the Vegas To Reno leg of the 2014 Best In The Desert series in Nevada, the Murray Racing / Can-Am / ITP team scored a third-place podium finish as three ITP-backed teams earned top-five finishes in the 1900 P class. And Nick Thompson took second place in the Pro 1000 class at round seven of the Dirt Series in Southern California.

"We had some good results this weekend competing in several different events in three different states. I couldn't be happier for the Pratt brothers, who have worked their tails off all year to put ITP on top of the box no matter what series they compete in. They proved that ITP is THE tire choice for competing in such demanding race as the 4-hour Heartland Challenge" said Pat McGuire, Public Relations / Race Support.

HEARTLAND CHALLENGE

The 2014 Heartland Challenge endurance race featured several different classes for ATVs and side-by-side vehicles. However, unlike last year's dust fest, this year's event offered much better course conditions, despite heavy rains Friday and light rain on Saturday. The challenging hills, complete with new rain ruts and traction grooves and manmade obstacle course kept all the racers honest in their approach and strategy. ATV racers competed for 10 hours, while SxS teams circled the course for four hours.

Team I Love Hooters took the 900cc class win at the Heartland Challenge using ITP Ultracross tires on their Polaris RZR.
Despite a poor start and venturing off course - which ultimately required more time to catch the leading teams - pilots Marcus and Mouse Pratt (Team Jack's Excavating / Can-Am / ITP) managed to outlast all the other SxS teams to notch their first career Heartland Challenge victory. They won the UTV Open class, completing the four-hour race in a time of 3:53:48, and took the overall as well against more than 50 others.

ITP racers scored two other class wins in Iowa. Team I Love Hooters won the 900cc UTV class using ITP tires. ITP also won the 30+ class, as Team Media All Stars took home the class win aboard their Suzuki dressed in ITP tires.

BITD VEGAS TO RENO

Described as America's longest off-road race, the Vegas To Reno leg of the Best In The Desert series is popular for its location (both in the US and Las Vegas), the challenging Nevada desert and the fact that it is a double-points round. The 2014 course, which measured some 530-some miles, was more difficult because heavy rains created plenty of erosion and ruts as well as a course reroute over a dry lake bed. Even the promoter, Casey Folks, had to remind drivers to remember that the first 20 miles and last 20 miles of the course are notoriously treacherous due to the extremely rocky conditions. In other words, teams had to pace themselves as well as push themselves to earn a podium at this round.

The Can-Am / ITP / Murray Racing team tallied a third-place podium finish at the Best In The Desert Vegas To Reno race in Nevada.
For the Murray Racing / Can-Am / ITP team, the Vegas To Reno round meant a chance to earn valuable points and climb in the class 1900 P (UTV Pro) standings. Brothers Derek and Jason Murray, who sat fifth in the class point standings coming into the race, did just that with a solid third-place podium finish in Nevada. Despite starting 18th, Derek put the hammer down and was able to climb into the top 10 (eighth) after the first 200 miles. Once Jason took over, the team gained even more positions, moving into third place and podium contention. Derek resumed control of the No. 1917 Can-Am Maverick shod with 30-inch ITP Ultracross tires and pushed hard all the way to the finish. With a time of 11:44:31.261, the Murray team ended up third overall for their best BITD finish of the year.

"We managed to pull a podium spot for the fourth time in five years at this race. The Can Am ITP Maverick ran perfect all day. This makes 29 consecutive BITD finishes for us," said Derek Murray.

DIRT SERIES, ROUND 7

Nick Thompson scored a huge second-place finish in the SxS PRO 1000 class at round seven of the Dirt Series held at Lake Elsinore MX Park in Lake Elsinore, Calif.

Thompson currently holds a four-point lead with his No. 176 Polaris outfitted with ITP Black Water Evolution tires.

Can-Am Teams Victorious At Heartland Challenge

Open class in their Maverick at the Heartland Challenge in Iowa

Heartland Challenge

The 2014 Heartland Challenge endurance race in Carlisle, Iowa, featured classes for side-by-sides and both 4x4 and sport ATVs. Three classes (800cc, 900cc and Open) of side-by-sides competed during a four-hour format, while the ATVs, which included Pro, Series Challenge, 4x4, Ironman, Women’s and age classes ran for 10 hours.

Marcus and Mouse Pratt of Team Jack’s Excavating / Can-Am won the UTV Open class in their Maverick. The Pratt brothers excelled during the four-hour side-by-side portion of the Heartland Challenge, winning their class and taking the overall victory as well. The team didn’t get the best start and ended up taking a wrong line, which ultimately forced them to make up time. However, they stayed focused, remained patient and meticulously picked off competitors one at a time on their way to the front.

“We had a hiccup at the beginning, but we just took our time and started picking them off one at a time and conserving our vehicle. The Maverick was unbelievable today, and between Mouse and it, they were a force to be reckoned with today,” said Marcus Pratt.

Hunter Miller and Cody Miller (Louis Powersports / Can-Am) competed In the ATV Series Challenge class, representing Team Texas Quad Racing Association (TQRA). The two-man team won their class and ended up second overall, logging 36 laps in a time of 10:11.01.

“We had an awesome race. Our Can-Am DS 450s ran great with Elka shocks. We just tried to keep it consistent, because it got a little rough at the end. We got the lead after about eight laps and just ran a good race and took the win,” said Cody Miller.

Team Trantham (Kevin Trantham and Mike Edwards) claimed the 4x4 Pro class win for Can-Am and took fourth overall out of 70 teams. The team led the 4x4 pro class from start to finish, and ran so well that they used the same Outlander for all 10 hours. The Hicklin Elite team claimed second in the 4x4 Pro class on a Renegade 4x4.
