April 7, 2017 – San Diego, CA – The UTV World Championship announced today that Polaris RZR is returning as title sponsor of the 2017 UTV World Championship being held April 13-15, 2017 in Laughlin, NV. This will be the third consecutive year that the industry leading manufacturer has headlined the event. Polaris RZR leads the ever growing list of industry sponsors joining the 2017 UTV World Championship.
Polaris RZR will once again increase their support of the UTV World Championship by providing FIVE brand new Polaris vehicles to winners of the UTV World Championship races. Polaris will also be on hand to support racers and enthusiasts by showcasing products and providing an exclusive trackside VIP experience for the RZR team. Polaris will host a Friday night Team RZR VIP dinner and will host RZR racers and their teams all day on Saturday beneath the Polaris RZR UTV World Championship VIP Experience Tent presented by Low Voltage Security.
“RZR is proud to team up again with Joey D. & The Martelli Brothers to put on the premier race in the SXS industry. We’re excited to see the event grow again, a testament to the enthusiasm of all the racers and hard work of UTVUnderground and the BITD team to put on a first class race,” stated Polaris ORV Sr. Marketing Manager, Jason DiFuccia.
The 2017 Polaris RZR UTV World Championship powered by Monster Energy has over 470 banded racers and over 260 pre-entered UTVs scheduled to attend the event. Numbers will continue to swell as the race draws near. These record breaking numbers help further the reputation as being the largest UTV off-road race event in the world.
“RZR was the first company we met with in regards to the idea of the UTV World Championship. They were also the first company to get on board and support this dream and in three short years it’s amazing to see all of the hard work and commitment come to fruition in such a major way. It is because of Polaris RZR, their staff and the commitment from the other sponsors like them, that the UTV World Championship is able to operate at this level. Of course, the racers are the glue that binds it all and we are forever grateful to everyone who comes out to support this event at any level,” stated UTV World Championship Co-Owner & UTVUnderground.com CEO, Joey DiGiovanni
The three-day UTV World Championship event format will feature a pit crew challenge on Thursday night, an open poker run and contingency and tech in downtown Laughlin all day Friday, and race day on Saturday, April 15th. The UTV World Championship is part of the Best in The Desert (BITD) Off-Road Racing Association and will be marketed, produced, and televised by motorsports media heavyweights, Mad Media. The format brings together UTV desert racing, UTV short-course racing, and enthusiast rides into one massive multi-day event on the edge of the Colorado River in Laughlin, Nevada. The event has quickly become an important showcase for UTV manufacturers and aftermarket manufacturing companies to display and sell their products.
