We want to first congratulate Justin Lambert on his 4th win in a row this season in the UTV Pro (1000) class. Lambert is on a terror and it looks as if no one can slow him down!

Marc Burnett looks to have found his groove in his Polaris RZR XP Turbo. Burnett drove hard, fast and kept his RZR running in tip top shape. Burnett would not only win the UTV Turbo class but he would also OVERALL this inaugural race.
