Racing on TV Start Friday Night; Snocross Finals Are Saturday Night
Press Release –
Polaris snocross racers – and snowmobile freestyle athletes – have been cleared for landing atop the podium at the Winter X Games, which will be contested – and broadcast – Friday through Sunday, January 26-28.
Eleven Polaris snocross racers are competing for slots in the X games final on the slopes of Aspen, Colorado, where they hope to win the coveted gold medal.
The X Games are a non-points event, but they create the season’s most high-profile event with live broadcasts on ESPN and ABC.
“The X Games are something that everybody wants to win for the bragging rights and the exposure,” said Polaris Racing Manager Tom Rager, Sr. “Polaris race fans should be excited because we have an outstanding lineup of racers in the event, and their seasons are off to a great start on the Polaris IQ race sled.”
Along with the 11 Polaris racers in the snocross competition, three Polaris riders have qualified for the Snowmobile Freestyle event, which makes its Winter X Games debut this winter.
“While the snocross is intense and super-competitive, the snowmobile freestyle is really fun,” said Rager. “Polaris is extremely well-represented by some high fliers who have an excellent chance of winning the first Winter X Games gold medal in this event.”
