“My plan was to get the holeshot and get away from everyone else so I could drive my own race,” said Guthrie Jr. “What my RZR got through today really shows how awesome this machine is and how great my sponsors are to put this thing together. I have the best crew out here. I drive the car, but they are the ones that keep it going.”

RZRs also finished first and second in the UTV Pro Production class with Dodge Poelman taking the checkered flag and Polaris Factory Racer Kristen Matlock taking second in her RZR XP 1000. This was Matlock’s second Mint 400 runner-up finish.

“It was a rough course and we kept trucking,” said Matlock. “I picked my way through the pack pretty quickly in the class and had to pass a few turbos as well. The RZR performed great all day. The course just kept getting rougher as the race went on.”
