This is what most of the people trekking to Glamis are looking for—thrills and excitement in the dunes. While this looks pretty crazy, spotters are checking to make sure the coast is clear before going for air tricks.

Country star Jake Owen returned as the concert headliner for Saturday night, but when he wasn’t prepping or performing, he was shredding dunes in a new Polaris RZR XP Turbo.

The actual Polaris display area that is the heart of Camp RZR is fenced with specific hours. This happy stampede is right as the gates opened for Friday’s start.

One of the highlights of Camp RZR was this RZR XP 4 modified to carry a Gatling gun T-shirt cannon to launch bundled T-shirts to the crowd.

In addition to building increasingly amazing off-road machines, Polaris is building connections with all RZR owners, and being part of the extended Polaris family means major events that bring Polaris fans together. For the fifth year, Camp RZR has hit SoCal on Halloween weekend at the Glamis area of the Imperial Sand Dunes Recreation Area. For 2016, Camp RZR attracted enough visitors to fill the camping areas elbow to elbow, and an estimated 27,000 dune enthusiasts were on hand for the weekend’s festivities. Activities were nonstop, but the vast majority of participants simply got out and enjoyed the dunes. While a huge number were on Polaris machinery, by no means were all of the 27,000 riders/drivers so brand loyal. There were buggies, UTVs of all stripes, ATVs, motorcycles and even street-driven machinery adapted for the sand. Here are some photos that give a feeling of the weekend and this unique dune area.

 

This is just the machinery that was parked outside Camp RZR’s gates. The machines were constantly moving in and out as visitors checked things out and then headed back to play in the sand.

There are still plenty of quads to be seen in the dunes. This foursome was parked right at the gate to Camp RZR.
