Minneapolis, January 29, 2008 –Don Higbee, Owner of Karst Motorsports, a Polaris dealership in Casper, Wyoming, hit the podium at the first WORCS race of the year in Phoenix, Ariz., on January 25.

Higbee was aboard a brand-new, off-the-showroom floor Sportsman 850 XP EPS in the “Utility Class.”  He led the first 2.75 laps of the four-lap race and then encountered minor technical difficulties with his kill switch. Higbee finished three seconds behind race winner and Karst Motorsports Teammate Jason Miller.

“This was my first race aboard a Sportsman 850 XP. The power steering was amazing and the fact that we took a stock model to a podium finish the first time out is a testament to the quality and performance of the Polaris Sportsman,” said Higbee.  “This was our first WORCS race and we were really impressed by the WORCS staff, the track and everyone associated with the event, it was a great time. We look forward to running more WORCS races and a few GNCCs this year.”

In other Polaris WORCs news, Mark Holz and his RANGER RZR took the overall win in the UTV classes. Holz cruised to the finish line about two minutes and 30 seconds in front of the second place finisher.
