Eichner Racing's Doug Eichner takes Ninth Pro
Win at the 40th Anniversary Lake Elsinore Grand
Minneapolis, Minn, November 11,
2008-Saturday, November 8, 2008 marked the 40th
anniversary of the Historic Elsinore Grand Prix.
Eichner is no stranger to the Lake Elsinore
Grand Prix and considers it to be one of his
most enjoyable races.
Friday before the race, all competitors were
allowed to ride mountain bikes on the track to
site the course before race day. Eichner
took advantage of the site-lap and returned to
the Polaris / Lone Star / Eichner Racing pit
with a smile stating this was the perfect track
for his style of riding and the capabilities
of his powerful Polaris Outlaw 450 MXR with
enhanced power and exhaust from Yoshimura,
numerous aftermarket components from Lone Star
Racing, MAXXIS Tires, Rath Racing and GPR
Eichner said, "The track was going to
be fast, fast, fast and included a spectacular
70 ft. table top jump followed by a 90 foot
double jump and of course the legendary Lake
Elsinore water jump."
Eichner couldn't wait to get at it as the
flag dropped on Saturday morning at 11:30 a.m.
It was a dusty start, but it was only a short
time before you could see Eichner's classic
riding style aboard the Polaris leaving site of
the crowd with a large lead.
Eichner and the Polaris Outlaw 450 MXR ran a
flawless 45-minute race, mastered the jumps and
turned on the gas on the fast open style
track. With what appeared to be an untouchable
lead, Eichner took the time to give fans
"high-fives" as they jumped out of the cheering
sections with their arms waving.
Clearly the crowd favorite, Eichner made this
victory his ninth Pro win at the Legendary Lake
Elsinore Grand Prix, but a first for Eichner
aboard his Polaris Outlaw 450 MXR.
