CT POLARIS RZR 4 DYNAMIX

-- A desert wagon made to drive hard -- By the staff of Dirt Wheels Allen Knowles is the owner of CT Racing, and he has managed something extraordinary. No, we aren’t talking about this cool four-seat desert monster he built. He’s managed to find a wife who still likes to get out and hit trails in a rowdy UTV. Roxanne can navigate, feed the crew, or drive the dually and the trailer. Even more, she can stand to be a passenger when “Crazy Al” is driving. We’ll admit, we will only ride with him when the alternative is…

POLARIS GENERAL UPGRADES

-- A PROJECT UTV BUILD YOU'LL LOVE --  By the staff of Dirt Wheels. The Polaris General brought a new flavor of fun to the UTV industry.

But as he says of his fairly recent passion, “I just can’t stay out of these UTVs!” Even though the companies he offers event support for (CST as well as Maxxis) are powerful players in the UTV market, it was seeing neighbors in rural Utah having fun in UTVs that finally motivated him to step into a dealership. He is a family…
