    I was surprised of the lack of event/race coverage, especially being that the race was built and named after this site. They did post the top 3 in each class on Instagram.

    So if I am reading the results right...

    Polaris didn't win any class in the desert race. 3 of the top ten turbos were CanAm. The only unlimited machines that finished top 44 were not Polaris. And 2 of the top 5 production machines were Yammy.

    Anybody figure out who the racer was that ruined everybody's day on the start??

    With Polaris not winning any desert classes, I suspect we will also see a lack of post race coverage too. In the past the post race coverage was paid for by Polaris, not something UTVU just did. That was why they did not cover the none Polaris teams, which was understandable.

    I bet if this continues to happen Polaris will be releasing the new XP sooner then later.

    There was a decent amount of updates on the turbo class throughout the day. Mostly from teams on Insta. I appreciated Joey filming the start . But with hosting the race and two boys racing on top of that that is alot going on for any one guy. Still pretty lame though the NA class had zero mentions all day. Not one. Apparently its all about the turbo class now

    Yeah, I really should get ip to speed with Facebook and Instagram. It's just such a narcissistic thing. It's always, "I'm doing this", or, "I've done that". It's all so effen vain, but I guess it is the direction in which we all are heading.

    After reading about how this race was a demolition derby, I have a few ideas to make the race better and not a demolition derby.

    UTVU, MM & BITD will not like this one.
    1) Limit the amount of entries per class and race. Teams who have entered the previous BITD race get first priority in the desert race. This would be a lost of revenue for the promoters, so I'm sure they will not want to go this route.

    2) Treat this whole event like a Moto event and run 2 lap heat races, with the top five or whatever #, going to the main event. You could even have a LCQ and take the top 2 or 3 from that race. Then you have your main event which is 4-5 laps with 25-30 cars on the course max. This way you can take as many entries as you want, but have the racing in a more controlled environment.

    You're right but you can go on and just observe. I got on to keep up with my sisters, nieces and nephews in other states. Also its where everyone in my offroad/dune group posted all the pictures. Sponsors like it also.

    Unfortunately most of the big names are in Turbo now so thats probably how its gonna be. I was there rooting on my buddy in na class but trying to keep tabs on all the classes and it was virtually impossible. I was so busy watching I never even thought to post on Facebook.

    I was hoping that coverage would be provided equally, unbiased, for us by us and all that... alas, because Polaris majorly screwed their 17 lineup, I pay the price with shit coverage.

    A race for everyone needs to be treated as such. I'm seeing posts on insta about losers, I mean that in a non insulting way. It's pretty sad really.

    Maybe next year this week I'll be able to !! CATCH THE WHOLE THING ON YOUTUBERS!!

    One thing is for sure, this poor guy probably didn't have many friends in the pits afterwards. Bummer! I hope he at least finished better then where he started.

    I know he didnt ram Dowden on purpose but holy crap. It was like he aimed straight for him trying to rejoin the race after getting bumped off the track at the start. My brother said jokingly he bet that dude went straight for the trailer after the race and hid. Im sure he feels bad after seeing how bad it looked on film.

    The first thing I thought was damn he pulled back on like his spot was saved or something. Driver side like that, you know he couldn't see for squat. Still though, a huge land rush like that you have got to know that as soon as you move your meat you lose your seat, no way anyone was going to slow down and let him pull back in.

    From what I saw pretty much everyone was going to win that race on the first lap. I saw a couple of very unhappy people in the pits also. I understand wanting that little bit of clean air if you get the holshot but people with bad draws who kept moving the whole time won the races.

    Looks like the rzr driver had something to do with rolling 2 cars.

    What is the protocol when one is involved in a wreck like this? Do you stop and check on the other car, or is that primarily when you're away from spectators/race orgs?
