FLUIDYNE® POWERSPORTS RADIATOR-EQUIPPED TEAM WINS 534-MILE VEGAS-TO-RENO DESERT RACE

SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. (September 10, 2010) -- FLUIDYNE® Powersports congratulates Greg Stuart and Nic Granlund on their third consecutive Best in the Desert series Vegas-to-Reno Pro Quad class win.

Their XR650-motored, FLUIDYNE® Powersports radiator-equipped hybrid race quad already had more than 1500 hard race miles under its valve cover, but ran flawlessly for the 10 hours and 26 minutes that it took to reach the V-to-R finish line.

Soon after Stuart started the 534-mile race at 6:00 am, he began passing bikes and quads, building a class lead that was never relinquished as he and Granlund swapped riding duties throughout the day. In the end, just seven motorcycles were ahead of them. The team averaged more than 51 mph and crossing the finish line 35 minutes ahead the second-place Pro Quad entry. Stuart and Grunland, the defending Best in the Desert series champions, currently lead the 2010 points race with two races remaining.

"We felt confident starting the race knowing our quad had a Fluidyne radiator handling the cooling duties," said Granlund. "As the air temperature climbed above 100 degrees, the motor ran strong for the entire 534 miles."
CT Racing's Allen Knowles, whose custom-modified engines have won countless races and multiple titles in every form of ATV competition, says the keys to off-road endurance are quite elementary: "Simply keep it cool and keep it clean and it'll keep running," says the veteran motor builder.

In addition to keeping their cool, FLUIDYNE® radiators are also built more rugged to fend off damage. Constructed from aircraft-quality aluminum, structural highlights include thicker materials throughout, a CNC-machined billet filler neck, beaded hose connections for leak-proof sealing and a stainless-steel radiator caps. These components are held together with substantial TIG welds to withstand extreme conditions and produce a crash survival rate far exceeding the OEM parts.

Not only do FLUIDYNE® radiators out-cool and outlast the stock units, they're much less expensive, come with a one-year warranty and install easily, utilizing the factory mounts and hardware.

Multi-time winners in the SCORE and Best in the Desert series, including the grueling Baja 1000 and now two victories in the 1000-mile Vegas-to-Reno race, FLUIDYNE® Powersports radiators have been proven around the world. Developed and manufactured in the United States, they are built upon 50 years of experience in vehicular fluid dynamics.

Available for nearly 100 ATVs and side-by-side vehicles and motorcycles, FLUIDYNE® Powersports radiators are also available for custom applications. Distributed by Parts Unlimited, Tucker-Rocky, WPS, KK Motorcycle Supply, MTA, Southern Motorcycle Supply, CV-4 and IMS Products- FLUIDYNE® Powersports radiators are readily available through thousands of dealers nationwide.
