Polaris Finishes Longest Baja 1000 on First Outing
Polaris team finishes fifth on Outlaw 525 IRS

Minneapolis, Nov. 29, 2007 – The Polaris Outlaw continues to flex its muscle in the racing world, this time by finishing the longest Baja 1000 on its first attempt.

Hancock Racing, consisting of Jeff Hancock, Josh Edwards, Nick Nelson, Brandon Brown, Shane Strunk and Shiloh Strunk, finished the grueling, 1296-mile race in fifth place in the Pro ATV class. The team ran most of the race in third until an engine issue plagued the team in the last 250 miles.

"Finishing the longest Baja 1000 on our first try is a huge accomplishment,” said Joel Notaro, project engineer for Polaris. “I’d like to thank the team for their dedication to Polaris’ racing efforts and hard work prepping and piloting the Outlaw 525 IRS to its finish.”
