Rath Takes 40+ Class at Spring Creek

Minneapolis, June 17, 2010– Daryl Rath returned to motocross with a vengeance taking first place in both 40+ Motos and the class overall, on his Outlaw 450 MXR, at the ATV National, at Spring Creek, in Millville, Minn.

Rath, who has piloted his Sportsman 850 XP EPS this season in the GNCC Series, decided to heed the call of Spring Creek’s always-challenging MX course in front of his home state fans. The overcast skies looked like rain but it stayed away long enough on Sunday so the racers and fans could get a true experience of the facilities at Spring Creek. The track employees did their best to salvage the track on Saturday after lots of rain on Friday, but still ended up with an extremely challenging track. Sunday the track came around to almost near perfect conditions.

“From the time when I was actively chasing the MX championship, I said if an ATV national would come to Millville I would race it, and I am really happy I did. I wasn’t sure what class I was going to run at first but decided on 40+. My Outlaw yanked off the line into the lead both Motos and from that point on, I was just having some fun. It was great to be back in a MX gate both to bring the win to Polaris but even for the experience I can relate to Casey and his Outlaw program,” stated Rath. “I have always said cross training is the best training and I am lucky enough with my relationship with Polaris that they support me when I want to go off and race different types of events, such as MX, TT, Supermoto, Cross Country and now even a little Side-by-Side. It’s a great relationship for product research and development both for my own program, Casey’s and Polaris.”

“Daryl is such a versatile racer that it is no surprise he dominated the class,” said Donna Beadle, race team manager for Polaris Racing. “And to do it in both his and Polaris’ home state is icing on the cake.”
