The RZR 170 class looks like fun. It runs early in the program—probably so the drivers can get home before bedtime!
If you are looking for this sort of action, you can almost count on seeing cars on the
side or roof. Everybody came out safe.
Drivers must be at least 16 years old
for the Production 1000 class.
Drivers need only be 6 years old
for the RZR 170 class. Again, there
are a variety of safety mods that
are required, but the car itself isn’t
allowed engine mods. Youth drivers
over 8 are also allowed in the Kart
classes. Karts are race-specific chassis with miniature truck bodies, but
they run lawnmower-type engines
in the lower classes and stock 450cc
quad motors in the other class.
The last UTV-specific class is SR1.
That class runs a race chassis with
suspension designs based on a
Yamaha Rhino. In reality the cars
are no more like a Rhino than a
NASCAR race car is like a family
sedan. They run stock Yamaha R1
street bike engines with roughly 140
horsepower, so they are faster than
the Production 1000 UTV class.
