; In addition to building increasingly
amazing off-road machines, Polaris
is building connections with all RZR
owners, and being part of the extended Polaris family means major events
that bring Polaris fans together. For
the fifth year, Camp RZR has hit SoCal
on Halloween weekend at the Glamis
area of the Imperial Sand Dunes
Recreation Area. For 2016, Camp RZR
attracted enough visitors to fill the
camping areas elbow to elbow, and
an estimated 27,000 dune enthusiasts
were on hand for the weekend’s festivities. Activities were nonstop, but
the vast majority of participants simply got out and enjoyed the dunes.
While a huge number were on Polaris
machinery, by no means were all
of the 27,000 riders/drivers so brand
loyal. There were buggies, UTVs of all
stripes, ATVs, motorcycles and even
street-driven machinery adapted for
the sand. Here are some photos that
give a feeling of the weekend and this
unique dune area.
Country star Jake Owen returned as the concert headliner for Saturday night, but
when he wasn’t prepping or performing, he was shredding dunes in a new Polaris
RZR XP Turbo.
This is what most of the people trekking to Glamis are looking for—thrills and excitement in the dunes. While this looks pretty
crazy, spotters are checking to make sure the coast is clear before going for air tricks.
