Cognito Racingâs Justin Lambert takes class and overall win in his RZR XP 4 1000, RZRs take 11 of top 12 positions

Minneapolis, August 24, 2016âPolaris RZR continues to show sheer dominance in the Best in the Desert Racing Series (BITD), winning 11 of the top 12 Pro UTV finishes and the top two overall in the General Tire âVegas to Renoâ The Long Way presented by FOX.

Polaris Factory Racer Justin Lambert and his No. 1918 Cognito Motorsports RZR XP 4 1000 won the Pro Production class AND was the fastest UTV overall. Lambert and his team have been on an incredible run: currently on a five-win streak, including back-to-back Vegas-to-Reno wins and two overall UTV wins this season. Thatâs especially significant as the team competes in the non-turbo UTV class and continues to outdrive the higher-horsepower, turbo UTVs.

Finishing the sweep of Pro Production was Matt Burroughs and his No.1948 RZR XP 1000, who took second, and Rhys Millen in the No. 1987 RZR XP 4 1000 taking third.

      So, im new to UTV's always ridden ATV's typically the Polaris 850's and such and a few Rubicon's. Moved into the county with some land and figured I'd get back into the country mud. I've been doing some research on UTV's and I am impressed, I went to the local pony powersports and sat in a few atvs, being 6ft1 and 360lbs I wanted to make sure I could fit into one of them comfortably before doing my research on which one I wanted. My conclusion was - the Honda Pioneer 1000 limited edition , or the Polaris ranger xp 1000 (would prefer the highlander edition).  I was trying to do some research on which one is better, I know they are both leaders in the industry from the research I have done.  I'll mostly be driving through creeks taking it to some trails and moving some things here and there (firewood, fallen trees, ect.) the years im considering are 2017,2018 and if there is a big enough change in the model that a 2019 would make more sense then I would do that. Looking to spend 20k ish. Any help on deciding the better of the rangers and pioneers would be appreciated, or if you have another UTV a bigger guy should look into!
