Doug Eichner Charges to the Checkers at ITP QuadCross Round 8

Doug Eichner continuing his charge on behalf of the Polaris/Lone Star/Eichner Racing Team, bringing home the Open Pro win aboard the Polaris Outlaw 525 S, at the ITP QuadCross Round 8, held October 18-19.

The ITP QuadCross was held at the Competitive Edge MX Park, a new location for the series, located in Hesperia, Calif. and home to Supercross competitions.

The new venue challenged competitors with a large number of huge jumps, sweeping corners and rough terrain.  Proving to be a perfect venue for Eichner and his Outlaw 525 S, with enhanced power and exhaust from Yoshimura R&D of America, Inc., FOX Racing Shox suspension, steering stem, a-arms, hubs and axle from Lone Star Racing, and supported by MAXXIS Tires and DWT wheels among other quality aftermarket components, Eichner took the checkered flag win in both the Open Pro Motos 1 & 2.

Currently holding a 12-point lead in the ITP QuadCross Open Pro division, with one race remaining the series, the Polaris/Lone Star/Eichner Racing team has their sights set on bringing home the MX Open Pro Championship for the team with the final round scheduled for November 30, at the Glen Helen Raceway, in San Bernadino, Calif.

Eichner's passion for the Polaris Outlaw 525 S is evident any time he is asked about the machine's capabilities. "It is the best handling machine I have ridden to date," states Eichner.  When asked about the possibility of bringing a Pro MX Championship home to Polaris and the rest of his team sponsors, the seasoned veteran is quick to respond, "I really don't think much about it. I take one race at a time, prepare as much as possible, and give each race my best effort, and I never count out the capabilities of my professional competitors or the ‘luck’ factor."

Next stop for the Polaris/Lone Star/Eichner Racing Team is the final round of the World Off-Road Championship Series (WORCS) scheduled for October 31 - November 2, in Taft, Calif.
