Minneapolis, MN (April 18, 2017) – The most-anticipated, off-road viral video of the year XP1K4 has launched! The fourth installment of the wildly-successful film franchise features the driving skills of newly crowned 2017 UTV World Champion and three-time off-road champion, RJ Anderson.

Anderson lays down a massive barrage of gravity defying stunts in his highly modified 2017 Polaris RZR XP Turbo EPS.
