450R powered kart finished the LOORRS Modified Trophy Kart final round in style, scoring his 3rd win in only his first season of competition. Hart started from the second row and battled with teammate Mitchell DeJong throughout the race. The duo put on a tremendous race as they battled for the top spot on the podium.

Sunday December 11th CHALLENGE Cup
The Hart camp still floating on air after Saturdays heroics was about to be overwhelmed again with Kyle’s performance in the year end Challenge Cup race.
*The Lucas Oil Challenge Cup inverts the year’s point’s finishers into a 16 lap free for all.

Hart starting from the 4th row, battled his way to the runner up spot by the mid way caution. On the restart Hart bolted to the front and proceeded to check out on the field. Leaving no doubt who the dominate driver in the dominate truck was for the day. 

For famed ATV company Duncan Racing International is was their 11th victory of the season for their Modified Trophy Kart program consisting of DR Engine, Fat Boy 4 Exhaust and Vortex X10 ECU's.  An impressive showing since DR only entered the kart racing since in the spring of 2010.


Christmas came early for the folks at DragonFire when they wrapped up the #1 plate in both the GNCC series back East and the WORCS championship out West this season. As an added bonus, DragonFire-equipped UTVs stuffed the stockings with a 1-2-3 sweep in the GNCC series final standings!“With numerous individual event wins across the country this season and the overall UTV

Class Championships in both the GNCC series in the East and the WORCS title out West, DragonFire is a proven winner by any measure,” says General Manager, Scott Highland. “Anyone can claim to produce a superior product, but we prefer to let DragonFire’s multiple world championships do the talking for themselves. Whether it is the wide-open
desert racing of the WORCS series or the tight, treacherous terrain of the GNCC events, DragonFire is #1… and we have the plates to prove it!”

In addition to being a major sponsor for William Yokley’s National Guard Polaris Coastal DragonFire team, DragonFire’s exclusive exhausts, engine work, safety components, clutching mods and other hop-ups were successfully race-proven all season long. In fact, after battling with each other all year long, the GNCC open modified class championship
came down to a clean sweep at both the season finale in Indiana and the series points totals for DragonFire as Yokley edged Team Hendershot’s father/son team of Larry and Michael, while Scott Kiger finished third. All three top finishers utilized DragonFire’s Woods Suspension Package.

“Win, place and show… DragonFire racers were definitely on the gas this season,” adds Highland. “You could certainly ‘Feel The Heat!’ on the podium both in the desert and in the woods.” The gift that keeps on giving for 2012 is the fact that DragonFire sells the exact same components used to win both the 2011 GNCC and WORCS championships.
In addition to the Woods Suspension Package, DragonFire’s other championship winning components include RZR XP Dual Exhaust kits, DFR Racing Woods Cams, LowBoy doors, DragonBack seats, LockDown SFI-approved competition harnesses and DragonFire’snew quick-detach steering wheel.

This is just the tip of the iceberg according to Highland. “Wait until you see some of the hot new products we will be rolling out in the spring,” he hints.

New XUVs Provide Off-Road Performance, Comfort, and Multi-Passenger Capability

Now it’s easier than ever to conquer tough terrain and bring your buddies and gear along for the ride. The new John Deere GatorTM Mid-Duty XUV 550 and 550 S4 crossover utility vehicles offer off-road performance, improved comfort, cargo versatility, and the ability to transport up to 4 people across the most challenging landscapes.

"These new vehicles provide an unparalleled balance of off-road performance and work capability at a very affordable price," said David Gigandet, tactical marketing manager, Gator utility vehicles. "The new John Deere Gator XUV 550 and 550 S4 are a great compliment to our popular line-up of XUVs, and offer the most comfortable way to get you, your crew, and all your supplies to those hard-to-reach destinations."

With best-in-class, fully independent, double wishbone suspension, the Gator XUV 550 and 550 S4 provide 9-inches of wheel travel, and up to 10.5-inches of ground clearance to smooth out the ride. In addition, for the 550, you can choose from either standard high back bucket seats or bench seats. The 550 S4 comes standard with 2 rows of bench seats.

“Operators will not only appreciate the smooth ride, they’ll love the all new ergonomically designed operator station,” continued Gigandet. “The development of these new Gators started in the operator’s station, so they offer ample leg room, storage and dash mounted, automotive-type, controls.”
John Deere GatorTM Mid-Duty XUV 550 S4
The Gator XUV 550 and 550 S4 deliver mid-duty work capability with speed and ease. Both vehicles have a top speed of 28 mph, and 4-wheel drive to quickly traverse all types of terrain. The 16-hp, 570 cc, air-cooled, v-twin gas engine provides greater speed and horsepower than most vehicles in its class, and the cargo box can carry up to 400 lbs of gear. In addition, the 550 is small enough to fit in the bed of a standard pick-up truck.  For a larger crew and cargo versatility, the 550 S4 provides rear seat flexibility.

Two additional passengers can be transported in the rear seat, or if more cargo capacity is needed, the rear seat flips down to become a cargo rack.

“The rear seat flexibility in the Gator XUV 550 S4 is truly innovative,” said Gigandet. “The S4 can transport up to 4 people, but for the times when you need to carry more gear, the back seat can become more useful in seconds and increase your cargo space by 32 percent.”
John Deere GatorTM Mid-Duty XUV 550
The new Gator XUV 550 models are available in Realtree Hardwoods™ HD Camo or traditional John Deere green and yellow.

There are also over 75 available attachments and accessories to customize all Gator XUV models, such as, cabs, brush guards, and custom alloy wheels.
In addition to the XUV 550 and 550 S4, John Deere also offers the 625i, 825i and the 855D to round out its full line of crossover utility vehicles.

New RZR 4 900 XP Released by Polaris- Breaking News

2012 Polaris RZR XP 4 900 IS HERE!

Polaris Introduces Another Extreme-Performing Side-by-Side to the RANGER RZR Family
New RANGER RZR XP 4 900 Offers Razor Sharp Xtreme Performance for Four
*Note- this article was written by UTV Underground

This past January, Polaris introduced a whole new class of side-by-side with the RZR XP 900. Building off of the launch, Polaris is introducing another extreme performance side-by-side to the family, the RZR XP 4 900. This launch will bring Xtreme performance for four while delivering the ultimate combination of power, suspension and agility found in the entire RZR family.

The RZR XP 4 900 is the most-capable, highest-powered, multi-passenger side-by-side with the longest wheelbase making it the ultimate performance vehicle in the market place. The vehicle has many of the same attributes as the RZR XP 900; the proven 88 horsepower, ProStar™ 900 Twin engine, 3-Link Trailing Arm Independent Rear Suspension (IRS) with 12.5 in/31.8 cm of ground clearance and 14 in/35.6 cm of travel, On-Demand True All-Wheel Drive and low center of gravity for unmatched cornering; with a class-leading 107 in/271.8 cm of wheelbase to not only accommodate two more passengers, but also provide the smoothest ride available on a high-performance side-by-side.

“Polaris continues to innovate the RANGER RZR line by developing highly sought-after vehicles that offer the ultimate combination of power, suspension and agility,” said Dave Longren, vice president and general manager of Polaris’ Off-Road Vehicles Division. “With the instant success of the RZR XP 900 and the popularity of multi-passenger vehicles throughout the industry, it was a natural progression to develop an extreme-performing vehicle that four can enjoy.”

The ultimate combination of power, suspension and agility starts with power. At the heart of the RZR XP 4 900 is the 88 horsepower ProStar™ 900 Twin EFI engine that was built specifically for an extreme-performance side-by-side and first found in the RZR XP 900. The engine features Dual OverHead Cams (DOHC), four big valves per cylinder and dual throttle bodies located close to the intake valves for fast throttle response and groundbreaking acceleration.

In order to handle the massive power of the engine and keep the ride smooth, the RZR XP 4 900 features a 3-Link Trailing Arm IRS. The 3-link design consists of two extra-long radius rods and a far forward-connecting trailing arm resulting in a strong, yet lightweight system. And, for the first time on a Side-by-Side, the RZR XP 4 900 will offer Premium, 2.5 in/6.4 cm body, Walker Evans rear shocks, the largest stock shocks on the market. The massive 2.5-inch body shocks are designed to deliver higher damping forces and avoid shock fade compared to a 2-inch body shock thanks to a 35 percent larger piston area that reduces internal pressure and heat generation. The shock also contains 35 percent more oil volume to slow the rate of heat buildup when pounding through the roughest terrain.

Coupling the Walker Evans shocks with RZR XP 4 900’s long wheel base makes for the smoothest ride from a high-performance side-by-side. Its 14 in/35.6 cm of terrain-absorbing rear travel and 13.5 in/34.3 cm of front travel soak up the rough stuff and deliver a smooth, precise ride, while 12.5 in/31.8 cm of ground clearance gives the machine the ability to tackle any obstacle in its way.

For razor-sharp agility, RZR XP 4 900 features a low center of gravity for the ultimate ride over rough terrain. The engine-behind-the-seat design and strategically-placed key components optimize vehicle weight distribution delivering extreme, razor-sharp agility and performance, while the race-inspired rear suspension maximizes traction and power in the corners. To provide precise cornering, the suspension’s radius rods extend deep into the wheel hubs and feature an uneven link geometry that optimizes camber. This allows the tires to lean into the corner through the suspension travel, and plant more tire surface on the ground for maximum control. For added agility, Polaris will have a limited edition RZR XP 4 900 with electronic power steering for added control and less rider fatigue in the rough stuff.

In creating the first high-performance, four-seat side-by-side, Polaris paid close attention to ergonomics. Similar to its family members, the RZR XP 4 900 has class-leading tilt steering offering 10 in/25.4 cm of range and a heel pocket for unmatched throttle control. The front passenger will enjoy an adjustable front passenger handrail, while the rear passengers have ample amount of head-room and a rear passenger handrail. Similar to the front passengers, rear passengers also have a 12-volt plug in and two cup holders. All four bucket seats are interchangeable and offer 4 in/10.2 cm of front-to-rear adjustability making it easy to switch drivers. For safety, RZR XP 4 900 has four side protective nets and a certified roll-over protective structure (ROPS).

The RZR XP 4 900 is offered in Indy Red and a premium automotive quality Vogue Silver limited edition model with electronic power steering, and will be available at Polaris dealerships in January. PURE Polaris will have a wide range of accessories, including cargo boxes, winches and protection also available at launch.
