The Polaris RZR Factory team of Craig Scanlon, Kristen Matlock and Wayne Matlock will race the Dakar Rally in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia from January 3-15, 2021. The three FOX athletes will compete in the SSV class with all-new 2021 Polaris RZR Pro XP machines modified by Jimco Racing, marking the first time for Polaris and its marquee drivers to be entering one of the world’s toughest off-road races.
“In the world of off-road racing, getting the chance to participate in the Dakar Rally is an opportunity of a lifetime, and we are humbled to be part of RZR’s inaugural group of racers,” Wayne Matlock said.
“We have a tremendous amount of respect for the knowledge and experience that it takes to be successful in Dakar,” Scanlon added. “The racers and teams that have done this for years at the highest level have paved the way for new programs like the Factory Polaris RZR team.”
