Polaris Enters Agreement with Offroad Racer Robby Gordon


Polaris Industries today announced the company has entered into a marketing and product development agreement with famed NASCAR and three-time Baja 1000 Trophy Truck winner, Robby Gordon. The three-year agreement includes Gordon providing insight on future products and promoting Polaris' "Ranger RZR" Side-by-Sides. Gordon's vast knowledge of off-road vehicles, from a racing perspective and through his product development experience gained from building his own trophy trucks and accessories with his company, Robby Gordon Off-Road, will be a valuable asset in creating and promoting new "Ranger RZR" Side-by-Sides and accessories.

"I am very excited to be involved with Polaris. They are the leading American manufacturer in consumer off-road vehicles. The "Ranger RZR" and the RANGER have set the standard in side-by-side vehicles. At Robby Gordon Off-road, we have built the fastest, most elite off-road vehicles in the world. We are excited to share this technology and knowledge with consumers through our partnership with Polaris," said Robby Gordon.

A common name in NASCAR, Gordon grew up riding and racing off-road vehicles. He won the first off-road race he entered and went on to win various off-road championships. His passion for and success in off-road racing brought him to building his own trophy trucks and accessories, and creating Robby Gordon Off-Road, an aftermarket truck wheel, tire and accessory store. Gordon's accomplishments include three Baja 1000 Trophy Truck victories and becoming the first American to win a daily stage of the Dakar Rally, when it was a 16-day 5,700-mile race from Barcelona, Spain to Dakar, Senegal, mostly in vehicles he built himself. Polaris believes Gordon's off-road successes and product knowledge will be invaluable in the development and promotion of their "Ranger RZR" Side-by-Side business.

"Our relationship with Gordon is unique because he'll not only promote our product but use his off-road expertise to help create future "Ranger RZR" vehicles and accessories," said Matt Homan, vice president and general manager for Polaris' Off-Road Division. "Coupling Gordon's expertise in building and racing off-road vehicles, with the hottest-selling side-by-sides will ensure the "Ranger RZR" product line continues to be an undisputed leader both on the racing scene and in the marketplace."
