Sportsman 850 XP –Back to Back Wins!
Minneapolis, MN (08/06/09) Factory Polaris/Rath/Duro
Rider Daryl Rath spent the weekend collecting
wins on the Sportsman 850 XP.
The winning weekend was started Saturday, Aug
1, at the OMA National being held at the
legendary Millville MX track, in Minnesota. The
Millville track is well known for hosting the
Outdoor Bike Nationals but was perfect for a
little cross country action as well. Taking the
opportunity of summer break from the GNCC’s
Polaris and Rath are busy getting some
additional testing and development done on their
race bikes. Taking the win, along with placing
sixth overall in the morning class, left Rath
ready for Sunday. “I think this is the best the
bike has felt all season, we have dug in hard to
put together a winning program and that effort
is starting to show with the results.” said Rath.
The winning didn’t stop there! Saturday
night, the team made the trip to Decatur, IA,
for Round 5 of the IATVHSS race held on Sunday.
“The IATVHSS Series is one I really enjoy
racing. The people, the tracks and the rider
turnout is hard to beat. I have been wanting a
win there for quite some time and it was a great
feeling to put the Sportsman XP back on the
podium,” said Rath.
“Rath Racing has been instrumental in the
success of the Sportsman 850 XP in its inaugural
year on the race circuits,” said Eric Nault,
Polaris race team manager. “Polaris appreciates
the time and effort the team has invested in
preparing and dialing in the quad and is excited
for the second half of the racing season.”
