Shingle Springs, CA - What
happens when you equip the UTV industry's aftermarket product leaders with the
finest UTVs on the planet and put them all in one place? You get UTVs darting,
sliding and bombing through the sky during the second annual UTV Industry Ride
Glamis Sand Dunes Feb. 28-March 3, 2013.
The industry-only event organized
by UTVGuide.net, Fullerton Sand Sports and Pro-Armor is the one time each year
that the UTV industry's aftermarket manufacturers get to take their
factory gloves off and put on their driving gloves among their peers. It's a
time for the industry's leaders to show their latest and greatest products, complete UTV
builds and driving prowess in a relaxed environment. It's also an opportunity for
the aftermarket powerhouses to let loose in the dirt and around the campfire by
telling "fish" stories about their biggest jump, biggest hillclimb or just
making new friends in possibly the hottest powersport segment.
With each day's schedule set for multiple huge,
sand-blasting group rides, the engine builders,
suspension manufacturers, custom UTV builders and retailers all took to the
flowing Glamis Sand Dunes to cover hundreds of square miles of Mother Nature's
baby powder. From dune to dune, shredding earth's "goodness," each company
member had ample opportunity to show their best stuff. Some of the biggest
names present were Ryan Piplic of Cognito Motorsports, Dan Rosenzweig of Magnum
Off-Road and Jon Crowley of Crowley Off-Road Racing, who all brought their race
UTVs and let them fly.
