Polaris has a stacked line up on Team RZR and the their marketing gurus had this to say about the new race program.

“There are so many talented companies doing race builds now that it was difficult to make a choice. In the end I went with Rhys Millen Racing, and I couldn’t be happier. RMR has built a state of the art desert racer and I am thrilled to be behind the wheel of such a cutting edge vehicle.” – Wes Miller, Owner / Driver DWT Bomb Squad RZR
“Rhys Millen Racing is excited to launch our new race series chassis based on the 2017 Polaris XP4 Turbo. This is our first step into the pro production turbo category. With our many years racing turbo charged rally cars, we are confident the RZR will work well right out of the box. With Wes’ vast experience in the desert and off-road racing, we are confident the this lightweight, low center of gravity design will compliment his driving style.” – Rhys Millen, Owner of RMR / Professional Driver
DWT Racing has stepped up to the plate providing the lightest and strongest wheels in UTV racing as well as their rugged, flat resistant Moja-V tires.
“DWT Racing is really looking forward to being a part of this Team RZR effort. Wes has been a long time racer for DWT and won multiple championships on our wheels. It is a great opportunity for us to develop and showcase our products at the highest level and we look forward to big things for this program.” – Johnny Leach, Owner DWT Racing
