Polaris Racer Doug Eichner takes Saboba Grand Prix
Eichner wins race on Outlaw 525 S with commanding lead

Minneapolis, Feb. 11, 2008 – Polaris celebrates and congratulates, ATV Racing Legend, Doug Eichner on his Pro win at the two-hour Saboba Grand Prix, Sunday February 9-10, on the Outlaw 525 S. The Saboba Indians promote this annual event which had a very large showing for all divisions including 30 ATVs in the Pro line-up.

“I really enjoy Grand Prix style competition as it provides unique challenges for both riders and machines,” said Eichner.  “This is my second time racing at Saboba and my second win.  With the level of competition this year and competing with the new and impressive Outlaw 525 S, it made the victory even more satisfying.  I want to express my deepest appreciation to my mechanic, Scott Butler, and the crew from Lone Star Racing and Yoshimura who provided the essential support that helped to capture this notable win for our team.”

Eichner took the holeshot and about a five-bike lead into the first turn; winning the race with a commanding lead. His Yoshimura-built, KTM engine ran great, with both bottom and top end pulling hard over the rough course.  The FOX Racing Shox suspension handled the rough terrain with ease and supported the demanding drive of Eichner.
