RJ Anderson Wins UTV World Championship Short Course Production Turbo Class in RZR XP Turbo
RZRs sweep podium in class
Minneapolis, April 17, 2017 —Polaris RZRs had a great showing at the Polaris RZR UTV World Championship powered by Monster Energy in Laughlin, Nev. this past weekend. RZRs took seven of nine podiums, excluding the Unlimited class.

RZR XP Turbos swept the Short Course Production Turbo class with Team RZR’s RJ Anderson taking the championship. Ryan Holz finished second and Team RZR’s Branden Sims took third. RZR XP Turbos also finished on the podium in the Desert Race with Team RZR’s Justin Lambert finishing second and Mark Holz taking third.

The youth races saw an increase in entries with more than 50 total entrants, up from 24 last year. Youth racers took to the track in the RZR 170 EFI and the new ACE 150 EFI for some fun racing. In the Youth 250, Dallas Gonzalez took the win and in the Youth 170 race, Luke Knupp topped the podium.

With more than 300 total entries, up from 212 last year, the Polaris RZR UTV World Championship powered by Monster Energy continues to be the biggest UTV race in the world. As a sponsor since its inaugural race, Polaris RZR has been one of the biggest supporters both on and off the track. Of the more than 300 entries, approximately 70 percent were RZRs and for the second year-in-a-row, the company offered vehicles as the grand prize to each race winner.

“Polaris RZR is ecstatic with the success of the UTV World Championship,” said Matt Boone, Polaris RZR Marketing Manager. “The sponsorship and vehicle giveaways are our way to thank racers for their dedication to our sport. We look forward to continuing to be part of such a successful event.”

"7 of 9 podiums, excluding unlimited class" X3 took the unlimited class. My buddy took 4th in unlimited in his X3. RZR had a good day as well.

Re: RJ Anderson Wins UTV World Championship Short Course Production Turbo Class in RZR XP Turbo

What I'm curious about is how in the hell is his RZR a Production class turbo? I thought the Production class was for "near stock" vehicles? There were guys like him and Queen Racing that were in both the Unlimited and Production class - how is an actual production class turbo supposed to compete with the unlimited class rides that these guys are using?

There was 2 classes for the short course race, Turbo and Non Turbo. The over all winner won a new Turbo rzr. You can have a fully built turbo in that class or a fully built motor in the non turbo class. I entered my stock 17' turbo that has only a flashed queen racing ecu done to it. I took off in the front row in dead last due to a crappy start. Within the first couple turns I had already passed 7 people, by the time I came around to complete the first lap I was in 2nd place right behind Mitch Guthrie jr, I was able to pass him about 3 miles into the 2nd lap taking the physical lead when he was limping along with some mechanical issues, I held the lead until I pulled into the pits for some fuel before heading out into the last lap. Rj was a row or 2 behind me, on the final 5 miles of the race he finally passed me when I had to slow down due to belt temps, I blew the belt about 2 mins later and ended up in 13 th place after the down time. The point to my story is that you can compete with the big dawgs in any of these races. Rj has a built turbo and puts down some ponies but on any given day anybody can win.
