Rath Racing/Polaris Ready for the Spectacular Return of Terracross

Daryl Rath

Terracross,  as seen on ESPN and formally known as Quad Terrain Challenge,  is making its return to world of racing this weekend,  September 10-11,  at the 2011 Haydays Extravaganza. Once again, riders are going to face gnarly rocks, rough and tough log sections, mud and the absolute chaos caused by all the riders on the track at once.  In the past, only Utility ATVs have run Terracross but this event will have Side-by-Sides as well adding to the action-packed Terracross craziness.

Daryl Rath is no stranger to this sport and has been diligently working behind the scenes for two years helping the ESPN X Games Promoter bring it back, not only back but to debut it in front of 35,000-40,000 estimated spectators. “ Terracross was created for the ESPN Great Outdoors Games by Tes Sewell, it evolved into the professional sport of Quad Terrain which played for two seasons on ESPN. With the original name Terracross back and the help of Rath the large crowds at Haydays will see this thrilling action packed form of competition.” added Joe Duncan another key person in bringing this event together.

“I have missed this type of racing and am excited to be a part of it again. The truly exciting part for our industry is the goal of this becoming a complete series with dedicated TV coverage,” said Rath. “This race is following the debut of Endurocross at Summer X Games – those reviews only fueled this project to a higher level.”

Between training and prepping for this event, along with filming the pilot for a new TV reality show scheduled with Terracross, Rath has kept busy over the summer break from GNCC.

“It was important for me to keep all my sponsors involved with this as it will cause me to miss a GNCC Event, but the support and enthusiasm about me attending this event was even better than I could have hoped for,” Rath added.

Polaris is excited about the opportunity to put their machines to the ultimate test, as it seems the relationship with Daryl Rath/Rath Racing will add yet another chapter in their racing books. Rath will be competing in both events on a Polaris Sportsman XP 850 EPS and a RANGER RZR XP 900.

“Polaris vehicles are known for their performance, suspension and agility and Terracross is the perfect venue to show them off,” said Donna Beadle, race team manager for Polaris. “Rath has been very passionate about this project and it is nice to see it come to life.”

The 44th year at the 2011 Haydays features the following race/show schedule events scheduled both Saturday and Sunday. Click for more info www.snobarons.com/haydays/index.html
