Polaris RZR® Factory Racing Captures Two UTV Titles at the Iconic Mint 400

Mitch Guthrie Jr. Wins UTV Pro Turbo Class and Polaris RZR®
Factory Drivers Sweep UTV Naturally Aspirated Podium

MINNEAPOLIS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–With more than 140 UTV entrants, including nearly 90 Polaris machines,
the Mint 400 is one of the most iconic events in all of off-road racing.
This past weekend in Primm, Nevada, Polaris RZR®
drivers showcased the pure performance and capability of their machines,
as they earned two UTV Class wins, including an all-RZR podium

RZR Factory Driver Mitch Guthrie Jr. smashed the competition with
his RZR XP® Turbo S Velocity en route to a
first place in the UTV Pro Turbo Class. Guthrie Jr. lapped the
competition, finishing more than three minutes ahead of the second-place
finisher. The Mint 400 win comes on the heels of his King of The Hammers
victory on February 3rd.

“Coming off of our win at King of the Hammers, we came into the Mint 400
with big expectations, and it’s extremely gratifying to take yet another
checkered flag at such an important event,” said Guthrie Jr. “This event
brings out the best of the best, but our crew is as good as it gets, and
armed with a beast like the new RZR XP Turbo S Velocity, we were
pretty much unstoppable.”

In the UTV NA class, RZR factory racers swept the podium. It was
16-year-old Seth Quintero who captured the win after a lightning-fast
two-minute tire change by co-pilot Colby Wemple. RZR Drivers
Brett Ward and John Estrada each had impressive outings, completing the RZR
podium sweep with second- and third-place finishes, respectively.

Polaris RZR Factory Racing has secured seven wins and 17 podiums
in the 2019 calendar race series. RZR Factory Racing looks to
continue its success at the Lucas Oil Off Road racing series at Glen
Helen Raceway in San Bernardino, CA on March 16.
