Michael Swift Pilots Scrambler XP 850 EPS to First-Place Finish
Minneapolis, Sept 15, 2014–With summer break over, Team UXC Racing would head to GNCC’s Round 10, Unadilla, in New Berlin, NY. Team UXC Racing had spent the break fine tuning their Scrambler XP 850 EPS which paid off with their first win on the vehicle for the season!
Pro 4×4 Racer Michael Swift would start in the sixth position and fall back to seventh on a failed pass but would make up ground on the second lap passing four other contenders. With two laps to go, Swift would ride smart making up ground and with three miles to the finish, would pass the leader for his first win of the season and a second overall out of 425 racers.
“I cannot put into words how I feel right now. It was a great day out there and I had a blast racing the Polaris Scrambler 850 EPS. All of our hard work and countless hours are starting to pay off. I want to thank my family, Polaris, our sponsors and all the people that have helped, supported and stood beside me. I only plan to grow on this win and produce more results for our team and sponsors,” said Swift.
“We congratulate Swift and Team UXC Racing,” said Donna Beadle, Polaris Factory Racing Team Manager. “This team has put in a lot of hard work and dedication and the win was very well deserved.”
