If not for some fuel-related technical issues, the second car fielded by this team could have had a real shot of making it a one-two performance. Driving duties in the DragonFire Racing-prepped ITP/Carlisle Teryx were handled by Dave Roberts, Bob Viau, Chris Koch, John McCarthy, Cody Currie and Fred Sutter, with backing from Black Rock off-road wheels and Ultimax performance belts. This entry was the fourth Sportsman UTV entry to cross finish line in Ensenada, but was just outside the official time limit. This was an outstanding performance for a team with limited experience in Baja, in a new car that was put together in a very short timeframe. Everyone agreed that it was a great adventure, and vowed to return.
Both teams benefited greatly from the durability and performance of their ITP BajaCross tires and new ITP T-9 Pro Mod spun aluminum wheels (with ITP T7 Beadlock rings). In an event that’s notoriously tough on tires, neither team suffered a single tire failure. The Roberts-led squad even ran the same set of tires and T-9 Pro Mod wheels they used for over 200 miles of pre-running in the weeks leading up to the event! It was an outstanding debut for the T-9 Pro Mod, proving their lightweight yet durable capabilities in the world’s most rigorous test lab.
Congratulations to everyone involved in this inspiring effort. You showed once again how tough it is to compete in the Baja 1000, and how ITP tires and wheels can stand up to the test!

MESA, Arizona, November 25, 2009 - DragonFire Racing, the leading manufacturer and supplier of aftermarket racing and performance parts for ATVs and UTVs, today announced its Monster Energy Team Green Kawasaki-sponsored Teryx won the Sportsman UTV Division at the 42nd Annual Tecate SCORE Baja 1000, the granddaddy of all desert races. The 2009 Baja 1000 - which started and finished in Ensenada, and drew more than 250,000 spectators - covered 672 miles of rugged desert terrain, which the DragonFire Racing/Monster Energy Team Green Kawasaki vehicle finished in a winning time of 24 hours, 32 minutes, and 37 seconds (24:32:37).
This year's win in the Baja 1000 marks the second major title of the year for DragonFire Racing/Monster Energy Team Green Kawasaki. Earlier this year, the same vehicle won the Tecate SCORE Baja 500, while DragonFire Racing ended the year by taking home a points championship in the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series sponsored by Geico Powersports. DragonFire Racing/Monster Energy Team Green Kawasaki's winning Baja 1000 vehicle was driven by Reid Nordin of Lake Elsinore, Calif., Hans Waage of Scottsdale, Ariz., Todd Romano of Park City, Utah, and Larry Roeseler of Boulevard, Calif., who managed to race in two separate vehicles - placing second in the Norman Motorsports Trophy truck, and then completing the last 150 miles for DragonFire Racing, making this year's Baja 1000 crown his 18th Baja victory.
"It takes a team to win the Baja 1000, and this year - as well as for years to come, I believe - we are the team to beat," said Todd Romano, President, DragonFire Racing and one of the winning drivers. "With the support of Team Green Kawasaki and our DragonFire "Nessie" Teryx, we proved that we're not just another car on the race course but one of the fastest cars in Baja, winning or taking the podium in all but two 4-wheel vehicle classes."
Nearly 350 teams from more than a dozen countries compete in 29 pro and six sportsman classes for cars, trucks, motorcycles and ATVs at the Baja 1000, which is hands-down the oldest and most well respected of all desert races. Since 1967, the race has been run over the Baja California peninsula every year except 1974, when the international fuel crisis forced its cancellation.
"The performance, durability and fun factor of getting to drive Nessie in the Baja 1000 was an experience I'll never forget, said Reid Nordin, team driver and manager of Monster Energy Kawasaki Team Green. "When Kawasaki chose to work with Dragonfire it was based on their past performances, and in 2009 their race results raised the bar another notch."
"One of the toughest Baja 1000 ever, after 20 hours of flawless running I jumped in with 130 miles to go, The DragonFire Teryx was perfect, actually amazing. The last part was a War zone, incredible hills and silt with rocks. It was amazing how easy it made it.
15 years ago was the last time I conquered Baja with Kawasaki, 2009 was very memorable and such an honor to be part of the DragonFire/ Kawasaki Teryx winning effort."
Larry Roeseler, 13 overall Baja 1000 wins, plus 5 other class wins
The 2009 Tecate SCORE Baja 1000 will be televised by NBC at 2:00 p.m. (EST) on Sunday, December 19, 2009, and is scheduled to air on a delayed basis outside of the U.S. on ESPN International.

The Thanksgiving holiday annually sees as many as 200,000 visitors bring their sand vehicles to the region for four days of fun in the dunes. Each year also sees dozens of them requiring medical assistance because their fun got out of hand.
The Border Patrol teams will be stationed throughout the dunes to ensure that medical assistance is quickly available whenever injuries occur. As many as 30 agents will be on duty over the weekend beginning daily at 7 a.m. and remaining until 2 a.m. between November 25 and 28. Each of the agents is a certified emergency medical technician. Four of the agents on duty are paramedics.
The BORSTAR teams will establish a command post near the Buttercup area and will patrol the area on all-terrain vehicles, sand rails and other vehicles capable of reaching injured persons almost anywhere in the dunes area.
While most of the BORSTAR agents assigned to the dunes work out of the Yuma Sector, eight are coming from other Border Patrol sectors around the country. The El Centro Sector, which incorporates the far western portion of the dunes, also will provide agents.
“We see everything from scrapes and bruises to broken bones,” said Richard Ramirez, the supervisory Border Patrol agent who runs the BORSTAR rescue teams. Three persons have died from injuries suffered at the dunes so far this season. Alcohol is suspected as a contributing cause in at least two of the deaths.
“We advise everyone to have all the fun they can at the dunes, but be prudent. Know your equipment, bring plenty of water and be safe,” Ramirez said.
Additional agents will be on patrol at the international border ensuring that visitors stay more than 100 feet from the border fence.
U.S. Customs and Border Protection is the unified border agency within the Department of Homeland Security charged with the management, control and protection of our nation's borders at and between the official ports of entry. CBP is charged with keeping terrorists and terrorist weapons out of the country while enforcing hundreds of U.S. laws.

By Reid Nordin, Kawasaki Team Green
I’m finally home from the 27th annual Baja 1000 after nearly 10 days south of the border and boy does it feel good to be home. This year’s event would be one of the toughest Baja 1000’s ever. When the elite Trophy Truck class can only muster a 46MPH average you know it must have been tough. Just like any trip south of the border I have endless stories to tell from the trip down and back to the pre run let alone what happened during the race.
Let me start off by saying thank you to those who made this such a memorable trip this year. The entire Dragonfire crew of Todd, Jack, Seth and Darren put together and outstanding program, Todd and Ross at Fox for a great suspension setting. Everyone at ITP for the bullet proof wheels and tires, Mike Lasher for being a great pre run partner and our communications expert and to my teammates, Hans Waage, Todd Ramano, and the Baja Legend, Larry Roeseler. Thank you all for making it happen!
The pre race activities and prep were running along smoothly when we developed an issue with the ITP car during our final tuning session. The Nessy 1 was already tuned and ready to go but now we needed to change our attention to fixing the issues with second car before we did any more prep or pre running. Luckily the team was fully prepared and we installed a new bullet in the 1801 ITP car and set off to tune the car a final time. Just when we thought the tuning was finished a second problem occurred. This meant another rebuild and another day lost to prep.
The ITP car was finally up and running and we ran the start section in the 1803 car as a final shake down. We decided that night to do a visual on the valves just to make sure and we found the problem that caused the failure on the ITP car before it ruined our day. The valve spring retainer developed a crack and would have failed for sure had we left it alone. I wasn’t too worried as we still had about 18 hours before the start of the race.
Darren and Seth did a great job of swapping out some engine parts and we were back up and running the first thing the next morning. During the final assembly we didn’t fully tighten an oil line and when we ran the car down the highway she sprung a leak. Good news and bad. Good news, we found it before the race and bad news because staging was a mere 30 minutes away. How much more could go wrong before the race? That thought entered my mind for sure but I stayed calm and knew we could make it all work in the end. As it turned out we made the start with plenty of time to spare and my blood pressure and heart rate could return to normal in time to take the green flag.
To say this race was brutal would be a gross understatement. The dust was so bad at one point I was forced to make forward progress only using my GPS to guide me. It sucked to be limited on Laguna Salada to a mere 30-40 MPH but when visibility was zero that was the best I could do. I drove the first 200 miles and I passed more broken and stuck ten cars than you could imagine. Other then severe dusty conditions things seemed to be going smoothly for the Monster Energy DragonFire Teryx Nessy. Both Todd and I got stuck in a bottle neck but he really got the short end of the stick as he had to sit motionless for over 30 minutes at RM573. My bottleneck was early and only lasted 5 minutes tops although it did seem like an eternity.
Hans drove the second section flawlessly and gave the car to Todd in perfect condition. We had already decided to do an air cleaner swap and a belt change at RM395 but as it turned out we did not need to do either but we did just to make sure. Todd finished the Mike’s section just as the sun was coming up and gave the car back to me. Lasher installed a new GoPro camera while I changed the pedal location (it's hell being short). I handed the Teryx over to my hero, Larry Roeseler, who had already finished the race in his Norman Motorsports Trophy Truck. LR had his pre runner down there and needed to get it back to Ensenada so I jumped at the opportunity to get behind the wheel. We jointly decided that I should follow him up the course in case he ran into any trouble so I followed him to Santo Thomas before he headed east back to Ojos Negros and our final pit.
LR ran a solid anchor leg with zero troubles and brought the car home for a class win and a finishing time that puts us in a great overall position. Not only did we finish well but we were faster then many classes that started before us. As it goes in Mexico, anything can happen and it is never over until you take the checkered flag. It could have been a disastrous event if we weren’t as prepared as we were. The Nessy has again proved her toughness and agility in the worst Baja could throw at her.
This could not have been possible with out the following supporting cast: DragonFire Racing, Monster Energy Kawasaki Team Green, ITP Tires and Wheels, Fox Racing Shox and the entire hard working crew that put it all together.

Ham Lake, MN — MOTOWOZ Performance Systems is proud to announce the release of its new front piggyback shocks for cross-country ATV racing. The XC Piggyback Shock features an exclusive “tucked-in” reservoir configuration to provide an enhanced fit and improved durability and XC-specific springs.
“The reservoir is packaged much closer to the main body of the shock,” explained Jim Jaworski, MOTOWOZ president. “We engineered the shock this way because our experience has shown most racers will run some type of a long-travel A-arm. With the more typical piggyback design, the shock’s reservoir can hit the A-arm in the backside of the ball joint area as the shock moves deeper into its travel. Our compact design eliminates that problem.”
Many competitive shock brands incorporate remote reservoirs for use on ATVs set up for cross-country racing. MOTOWOZ took that knowledge into account and also knows many cross-country A-arms have an integrated adjustment area or device to alter the machine’s caster. Jaworski said this caster-altering mechanism consumes more valuable space and increases the likelihood of contact with a shock’s reservoir. “Our tucked-in setup also makes for a more refined package as opposed to exposed remote reservoirs. They stick out less, require less components during the bolt-on stage and are less likely to make contact with another quad or obstacle on the trail.”
The MOTOWOZ XC Piggyback shock features Adjustable Spring Progression (ASP), which gives the end user or shock tuner endless adjustment scenarios for racing off-road. The shocks are adjustable for compression and rebound and include a particular triple-rate XC Spring package that has been specifically calibrated for cross-country applications.
“Our compression and rebound adjuster effectively changes the shock’s internal settings and alters how the oil flows as the shock travels through its various strokes. Both adjusters also work in conjunction with relief valves that make them velocity sensitive,” explained Jaworski. “With our tunable, progressive spring package you can truly control the point where each spring takes over during the suspension process. In addition, you can make these adjustments with the shocks mounted to your quad, which ultimately saves you time and energy.”
Made from honed hydraulic cylinder tubing, the XC Piggyback bodies are CNC machined and then polished and plated for a distinguished appearance and durable finish. Like all MOTOWOZ shocks, the XC Piggyback model includes the company’s distinctive design traits: Stub Acme threads, aircraft-quality billet aluminum parts, 5/8-inch oversized shaft that is ground and hard chromed, triple-seal configuration, high-grade oil, Velocity Sensitive Valving (VSV), hard-anodized aluminum piston and precision stamped valve discs.
MOTOWOZ XC Piggyback Retail Price: $1,349
“Winning is important and that’s why I strive to eliminate potential problem areas. A rider’s abilities can only go as far as the equipment. If I can make it possible for the rider to focus on racing and not product flaws, then I’ve done my part of the equation and given them a better chance to win. And I feel rewarded when I see my customers standing on the podium and earning titles,” said Jaworski.

Designed and manufactured in the USA, MOTOWOZ Performance Systems has grown from its humble start in 2002 in a small garage in Southern California to its state-of-the-art corporate headquarters and R&D facility in Ham Lake, Minn.

In addition to the new UTV models, Precision has also strengthened the current DIAMO 500cc and 700cc XLT models with several upgrades and improvements for 2010.

The SX provides unbeatable power and acceleration. The narrow width and compact sport design make the SX trail capable allowing it to go where most UTVs can’t. The safety features of the Discovery UTV give you the confidence to go places.
All Discovery UTVs can be used for long excursions without having to return to the pump, thanks to the UTVs 7.6 gallon gas tank. The Discovery UTVs comes with a long list of optional accessories that include (roof, windshield, CD player, center console, full enclosures, winch, snow plow, upgraded wheels, hitch and more). The Discovery Series UTVs are equipped with hydraulic disc brakes on both the front and rear to provide plenty of stopping power, even with a full load. The Independent Suspension on all four wheels provides a smooth comfortable ride no matter the terrain. With both a low and a high gear, the Discovery off road vehicles are extremely versatile.

Sal Fish’s SCORE International is completing its 36th year as the World’s foremost desert racing sanctioning body and the event is the finale of the five-race 2009 SCORE Desert Series. The world’s best desert racers have come from 39 U.S. States and 14 countries to gather on the majestic Baja California peninsula. Among the entries are 25 class winners from last year’s race. Late entries will be accepted up until Friday morning.
This year’s 672.85-mile race will start for the 35th time and finish for the 20th time in Ensenada. The motorcycle and ATV classes will start their journey at 6:30 a.m. PST Friday, with the car and truck classes starting at approximately 10:30 a.m., or three hours after the last ATV leaves the line.

"Everyone at Muzzys would like to congratulate Chad, Bobby and Tyler on a great season," said Rob Muzzy. "The competition was fierce in the Unlimited UTV Class, and these guys showed tenacity to make the podium for the season."
The exhaust systems that Chad, Bobby and Tyler ran all season are basically the same as the Muzzys standard Teryx Dual Exhaust. "We learned a lot this race season and put that insight into our new Teryx PRO Exhaust which are a perfect match to big bore Teryx engines," commented Rob Muzzy.
Not only do Muzzys dual exhaust systems perform and sound great, they are built to take a beating.
"Chad and Tyler both ran with the same exhaust in their Funco Teryxs all season long," said Grant George of Funco Motorsports. "The power and durability of Muzzy's exhaust is second to none."
Muzzys Performance Products exhaust and big bore kits are all made in the USA and are available from Muzzys or at powersports dealers across the country. More information about Muzzys Performance Products can be found on the Muzzys website at:www.muzzys.com or by calling 541-385-0706.

The check presentation symbolized Cycle Gear's total donation to BRC via its Trail Access Fund of matching funds in 2009. This is the 7th year in a row in which Cycle Gear matches (dollar for dollar, up to $10,000 per annum) club and rider donations to the Fund.
Dave Bertram, off-road hero and CEO of Cycle Gear, states, "Despite the tough economic times that we all are facing, Cycle Gear is committed to this grant program in support of BRC's efforts to successfully champion our right to access trail-based recreation on public lands."
"The OHV community is facing serious and never-ending challenges that threaten our sport. Now is not the time for the off-road business community to abrogate our responsibility to continue support for access groups that fight to protect our rights to ride on federal and state lands," Bertram said.
Don Amador, Western Representative for the BlueRibbon Coalition, said, "This generous donation by Cycle Gear will help BRC continue its OHV advocacy efforts and is greatly appreciated by the organization and our members. It's critically important support programs like this that will help fund our land-use efforts in 2010."

Austin Kimbrell jumped out to the early lead in his #607 UTVUnderground.com/Weller Racing Kawasaki, ahead of Robert Vanbeekum in the #664 Xtreme Machine and Fabrication/LorenzStudio.com Kawasaki. By the competition yellow, RJ Anderson was up to third in the #637 Walker Evans Racing/K&N Polaris, with Roger Stokes fourth in the #657 HRT Motorsports machine and Kelly fifth in the #800 Muzzys Performance Products Kawasaki. After green flag racing had resumed, a spin by Stokes allowed the #694 Beard Seats/C&G Motors Kawasaki of Tyler Winbury into the top five. Soon afterwards, Anderson pulled off the track and out of the race, and with one lap to go, Kimbrell was having a field day, leading the field by a long ways. On the final lap, Kelly dropped one spot to the #655 COD machine of John Dempsey after incurring a right rear flat tire, while the other positions remained unchanged. Kimbrell took a dominating win, followed by Vanbeekum, Winbury, Dempsey, and Kelly. Having crashed heavily in the Super Lite race yesterday, it was fortunate for points leader Chad George that he only needed to start today’s race to secure the title, which he did. A very sore and visibly limping George finished seventh in his #624 Funco/King Shocks Kawasaki today, giving him the ’09 Unlimited UTV Championship. Kelly won the Modified UTV race, and Pierre Perret won the Limited UTV race in his #709 Perret Motorsports machine.

The all-new Position-Sensitive 2.0 (available with DSC) gives you position-sensitive damping for the optimal compression damping at each phase of the stroke, and its wide range Dual Speed Compression adjustability allows a set-up that’s perfect for driver style and course condition.
The internal bottom-out cup provides additional damping at the very bottom of the stroke to give you the ability to push your vehicle harder for longer with improved driver confidence.
Less compression damping at ride-height gives improved comfort and traction while huge damping in the end-zone helps to flatten out the biggest bumps.
FEATURES / TECHNOLOGIES
- Position sensitive damping in a single coil-over shock
- No need for separate by-pass and coilover shocks
- Available in 3 different sizes(6.5”, 8.5” and 10” Travel)
- Also available with DSC(Dual Speed Compression)
- Secondary piston, cup and post function in the last 25% of travel to provide additional anti bottom-out force
- A precision tapered cup lead-in provides a smooth transition, essential for maintaining traction during mid-corner bumps
- Zero Cup Bleed ensures low-speed damping right to the end of the compression stroke (zero velocity)

IRVINE, Calif. Nov. 9, 2009 – The Recreational Off-Highway Vehicle Association (ROHVA) is working with the industry and other interested parties to develop a voluntary American National Standard (ANSI/ROHVA 1-200X) that addresses the design and performance of ROVs sold in North America.
The ANSI standard development process requires involvement from a variety of interests. Participants involved in the process, from the US and Canada, include the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and other government representatives, industry, consumers and other interested parties. Through the ANSI process, managed by ROHVA, those participants will reach consensus on an appropriate ANSI standard for ROV equipment, configuration and performance requirements.
The proposed standard will address design, configuration and performance aspects of ROVs, including, among other items, requirements for accelerator, clutch and gearshift controls; engine and fuel cutoff devices; lighting; tires; service and parking brake/parking mechanism performance; lateral and pitch stability; occupant handholds and Roll-Over Protective Structure; occupant -restraints; and requirements for safety labels and owner’s manuals.
The balloting of the first draft of this proposed ANS was completed July 27, 2009. Comments were received as part of the balloting process and were reviewed and responded to by letter. All accepted comments have been included in the current proposed standard dated October 12, 2009.
The proposed standard is open for public review and comment by directly and materially affected persons. The public comment period closes December 7, 2009. Printed review copies are available from ROHVA for $60. To request a copy contact ROHVA at (949) 255-2560, ext. 3023.
ROHVA and its member companies strongly recommend that ROV drivers and passengers follow these important safety rules:
1. Always wear a helmet and other protective gear, use the seat belts, and keep all parts of your body inside the ROV.
2. Never drive on public roads unless the road is part of a designated trail system or except to cross when safe and permitted. ROVs are designed to be operated off-highway.
3. Drive only in designated areas, at a safe speed, and use care when turning and crossing slopes.
4. Never drive under the influence of alcohol or other drugs.
5. Never drive an ROV unless you’re 16 or older or have a driver’s license. ROVs are not toys.
6. Never carry more passengers than the ROV is designed for, and never allow a passenger who is too small to sit in a passenger seat to ride in the ROV.
7. Read and follow the operator’s manual and warning labels.
The Recreational Off-Highway Vehicle Association is a national industry organization that promotes the safe and responsible use of ROVs. ROHVA is accredited by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) to develop equipment, configuration and performance standards. Based in Irvine, Calif., the not-for-profit association is sponsored by Arctic Cat, BRP, Polaris and Yamaha. For more information visit www.rohva.org.

U.S. representatives request administrative order that would shut off-highway vehicles out of 9.4 million acres in Utah
Association (AMA) reports.
Rep. Maurice Hinchey (D-N.Y.), along with 88 other U.S. representatives who joined Hinchey in sending the letter, is asking for the administrative action while the House debates H.R. 1925, also called America's Red Rock Wilderness Act of 2009.
Not a single representative from Utah supports H.R. 1925, which would designate 9.4 million acres managed by the U.S. Bureau of Land Management as Wilderness.
Once land is designated as Wilderness, no vehicles, including motorcycles, ATVs or bicycles, are allowed on that land. Even horseback riders would be banned.
"It is outrageous that Rep. Hinchey would attempt to bypass congressional procedures to put into motion the intentions of a bill that lacks the support of even one representative from the state that bill would impact," said Ed Moreland, AMA vice president for government relations. "This attempt is even more shocking in the sense that much
of the land in question does not even meet the definition of Wilderness included in federal law. According to the Wilderness Act of 1964, Wilderness can only apply to lands 'retaining its primeval character and influence, without permanent improvements or human habitation.'"
Included in the 9.4 million acres that the representative from New York wants to close forever to Utah's OHV community are existing OHV riding areas around Moab, the San Rafael Swell and Chimney Rock. These popular OHV areas represent some of the most important remaining OHV recreation areas in Utah, and are some of the most popular with responsible OHV riders. The targeted areas also include existing roads and developments.
H.R. 1925 would be particularly harmful coming on the heels of the recently enacted Omnibus Public Land Management Act, which closed more than 2 million acres of public lands. This vast Wilderness bill would take away
additional recreation opportunities that stimulate the local economies and are currently enjoyed by local residents and visitors alike.
The AMA is calling on all motorcyclists and OHV enthusiasts to help stop H.R. 1925. The fastest way to reach your U.S. representative is a telephone call. You can find contact information for your elected officials by entering your zip code at AmericanMotorcyclist.com

With his first visit to Primm this year, Robert Naughton immediately struck his claim on the Unlimited Lite field by sweeping rounds 1&2 at the first event. He ultimately relinquished his hold on the class in rounds 9&10 as Chris Brandt, with a season of consistent podium finishes, took the top spot heading into Primm. Throughout the season, Metal Mulisha General Brian Deegan has fought his way through the class to find himself in contention for a championship. Now, along with Naughton, looking to storm back from his disappointment in Surprise, Arizona, the pair are certain to challenge Brandt for the title until the last lap of the weekend is completed.
Over the length of his short course racing career, Carl Renezeder has faced a multitude of challenges and challengers. This weekend in Primm he looks to complete what could be his greatest accomplishment yet: championships in both the Unlimited 2 and Unlimited 4 truck classes. While the 860hp trucks Renezeder fields in competition appear to be quite similar, the two and four wheel drive characteristics of each truck require drastically different approaches when navigating the high flying off road tracks. The difficulty of accomplishing a double championship will be amplified by the resolve of both Alan Pflueger and Jeff Ward. Pflueger, the Unlimited 4 newcomer, sits just behind Renezeder as these teamates will square off for the final time this season while Ward is looking to amplify his amazing rookie year by taking the top spot in U-2.
The Primm Valley Motorsports Complex is located just south of Las Vegas in Primm, Nevada. Practice and qualifying sessions will be held on Friday, November 13th with racing action throughout the day on Saturday and Sunday. Gates will open at 9am. Tickets are available in advance at lucasoiloffroad.com or at the box office on site.
Short course off road racing will return to The Lake Elsinore Motorsports Complex for the Rockstar Energy/Lucas Oil Challenge Cup December 11th and 12th. The Rockstar Energy/Lucas Oil Challenge Cup is a stand alone event, featuring unprecedented purses in a variety of short course off road racing classes.
Going into the Primm race the standings for the Unlimited UTV class are:
- 624 Chad George (367 points) - Kawasaki Teryx
- 664 Robert VanBeekum (331 points) - Kawasaki Teryx
- 694 Tyler Winbury (328 points) - Kawasaki Teryx
- 657 Roger Stokes (320 points) - Yamaha Rhino
- 699 Brent Founch (300 points) - Kawasaki Teryx
- 637 RJ Anderson (267 points) - Polaris RZR
- 607 Austin Kimbrell (266 points) - Kawasaki Teryx

ATR's bolt in sleeve strengthens the a-arm where it needs it the most and spreads the forces from the coilover more evenly across the a-arm. This should also add to the life of the outer spindle bushing.
Another nice feature ATR built in is CNC machined end pieces with rubber O-rings that close up the open tubes and keep them from getting packed with mud and dirt. Tubes and machined end pieces have a Zinc Chromate finish and come with stainless machine screws.

utility vehicles combine rugged performance with an ultra-smooth ride for "go-anywhere, do-anything" confidence. No matter what you do, a New Holland Rustler can be built for you!
In fields and woods, over ruts and rocky roads, through mud or snow, Rustler UVs get the job done. Whether hauling supplies, pulling trailers or transporting people and gear, Rustler UVs can be configured to meet the need: they are offered in two-passenger or four-passenger versions, with gas or diesel engines, 4x2 or 4x4 axles, and with a wide variety of options and accessories.
Rustler UVs are built tough: the frames of the 120 and 125 models are constructed of the same grade of rust-proof, corrosion-resistant, lightweight aluminum used in jet fighters, while the 115 features rugged steel frame and box construction. They're backed by an industry-leading two year/2,000 hour warranty.
With total vehicle capacities of 900 to 1,600 pounds, Rustler utility vehicles handle big loads with ease. Independent front and rear suspension (rear only on the 115) and a high ground clearance provide an exceptionally smooth, stable, comfortable ride no matter what type of terrain they're on. Rack and pinion steering ensures easy handling.
New Holland offers Rustler UVs with 4x2 or 4x4 axles. For extra traction on the 14-hp 4x4 115 (gas) model, simply engage the shift-on-demand four-wheel drive, while the larger models engage four-wheel drive automatically. The 20-hp 120 (diesel) and 23-hp 125 (gas) models feature an automatic, all-wheel-drive system that delivers the gear you need, when you need it. There are no manual gears to shift, levers to pull or buttons to push. The automatic system always transfers power to the wheel(s) with the most traction to get through tough terrain.
Rustler UVs can be equipped with a choice of bench seats or high-back bucket seats with 13-position driver seat adjustment for all-day comfort. (Bench seat only on the 115.) For safety, passengers are surrounded by certified roll-over protection system (ROPS) and retractable safety belts for all seat positions.
A wide variety of factory and dealer-installed options and accessories -- from an optional powered cargo dump box, to cab enclosures, special lighting packages, and attachments -- are available to customize Rustler UVs. A hydraulic-powered, quick-change tool attachment system is built in. Attachments easily connect to a front mounting plate, and are controlled with a joystick from the driver's seat.
