Eichner Ends 2007 WORCS Season with a Bang
MEDINA, MN (Nov. 16, 2007)
- Polaris Factory Racer, and professional ATV
racing legend Doug Eichner finished the 2007
WORCS racing season with complete domination at
the final race of the WORCS series in Taft
California. Not only did he out run the
competition, but he did it three times out!
Eichner's first victory was in the Pro
Production class aboard the Polaris 525 IRS. The
Outlaw sported enhanced performance from
Yoshimura R&D of America Inc. and a suspension
set-up by FOX Racing Shox.
Riding the Outlaw 525 S for the Pro Main win,
Eichner ran uncontested lap times for more than
90 minutes in his usual hard-charging style.
He did not disappoint and nothing was going to
stop this man who was on a mission crossing the
checkered flag unchallenged by the large field
of worthy opponents.
Eichner finished the WORCS racing season in
second place, only six points behind the first
place finisher. After starting the first three
races of the season on another manufacturer's
quad, he switched to the Outlaw and finished on
the podium in six of the seven remaining races.
Eichner also showed his winning ways don't just
come aboard a quad when he smoked the Rhino-Mod.

Approximately six other machines were ready for
some racing. Eichner, just out for some
fun, gave his fans a holeshot start to the
thrill of a delighted crowd. When he
received a bump from fellow racer and good
friend aboard a highly modified competitive
unit, the race was on. Eichner was on the
gas with his co-pilot and pit mechanic Todd Hunt
hanging on for a thrilling ride. Eichner
never gave up even when the modified side by
side cleared a huge table top jump.
Eichner ran him down again through the turns and
rough course pushing the limits of his
competitor and its very capable pilot.
Pressure from Eichner and the incredible stock
RANGER RZR played its toll on the other side by
side as the Pilot overshot the table top jump
which finished his day. Eichner crossed
the checkered flag and put on the best show of
the year on in the SxS class of the WORCS
"It was a fabulous weekend and a great way to
end the year," said Eichner. "We had some
major changes this season and I am grateful for
the support of my honest and loyal sponsors as
well as true friends. I couldn't have done it
without them. The Polaris Outlaws have proved
they are very capable machines. The Outlaws
performance record is something to make special
note of and I can't wait to for another chance
to capture victories for the team of Polaris
professionals who take great pride in their
expertise and of course the invaluable support
of the best sponsors in the business."
