Minneapolis, August 6, 2007 – Polaris Industries today announced the company is working with Minnesota Dealer, Digger’s Polaris & Marine, to provide Sportsman ATVs and RANGER side by side vehicles to help with the recovery efforts of the Interstate 35W bridge disaster.

“As a Minnesota company, we share in the sorrow this tragedy has left on our state,” said Polaris President and Chief Operating Officer Bennett Morgan. “It’s our hope that the units provided make this very difficult effort a bit easier for all involved.”

Prior Lake’s Digger’s Polaris will provide six Sportsman 500 ATVs and six Polaris RANGER 4x4s to the Minneapolis Police Department and OSHA immediately to aid in the effort. Polaris vehicles also were used in the recovery and clean up efforts of Hurricane Katrina, at Ground Zero and during various Minnesota flood relief efforts.

“When our dealership was contacted to provide ATVs and Side by Side vehicles for the recovery effort, there was no doubt in my mind we would make it happen,” said Doug Nagle, owner of Digger’s Polaris & Marine. “This tragedy has hit very close to home and providing these units is our way to help with the effort.”
