Schueler attended Sunrise Mountain High School in Peoria, AZ , In his junior year of high school he and his brother founded Jagged Extreme LLC. In the humble confines of their home garage where they began customizing everything from golf carts to Jeeps and ATVs.
Both brothers had a keen set of mechanical skills and lot of imagination. With their passion along with the rapidly expanding off road vehicle market they were able to grow this business into one of the most well known off road fabrication shop in Arizona.
In 2007, along with the introduction of the revolutionary Polaris RZR, Jagged X became an aftermarket development partner for Polaris and launched a whole new world of offroad . This also sparked the birth of the factory backed Jagged X Racing team. Schueler has taken the lead role on the racing side of things and is the key to the teams racing success.
Schueler is the lead driver of the 1919 BITD (Best In the desert) race car. The 1919 has transformed through four generations of RZR, starting out as a two seat 50” RZR 800 into the 100+ horsepower RZR XP 4 of today. Schueler’s role, however, goes much deeper than racing a RZR in the desert. The Jagged X racing efforts help feed the engineering and product development teams information that help improve Polaris vehicles across the board.
When Schueler is not racing or building the coolest race cars, he enjoys snowboarding, Shooting, Fishing and camping in his beautiful home state of Arizona.

Cody Rahders, currently 18, started racing both Motocross and BMX at the age of five competing in the highly race circuits of Southern California and even raced at the KTM Challenge at the 2003 San Diego Supercross. After a string of injuries, Rahders stepped away from racing MX to concentrate on recovery and baseball.
In 2007, at the age of 12, Rahders decided he wanted to start racing again. His mother said, “Ride all you want but race in a cage.” And with this, Rahders moved into UTV racing competing in events such as the Lake Elsinore GP and Soboba GP. His results were good enough where at the age of 13, he moved into short course off road racing full time competing in series such a M4SX, Monster Jam and any one off event he could find.
2009 was his break out year where at M4SX Rahders won Rounds 1 thru 7 of the Armature series clinching the title Armature early and turned Pro for Round 8.
2010 and 2011 Rahders converted his UTV to SR1 spec (R1 street bike powered UTV) and went to the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series where he had several wins and placed well both years.
In 2012, Rahders competed in three different series capturing titles in two of them, the 2012 WORCS Production 700 champion and the Lucas Oil Regional Series SuperLite Champion, and placed 6th overall in LOORRS.
For 2013, Rahders will scale back and compete at both WORCS in a Polaris RZR 570 and LOORRS in a SuperLite Truck so he can concentrate on his studies to graduate from high school and continue on to collage.

Scott Kiger, a Waynesburg, Pennsylvania native started racing ATVs in 1990. In his early 20’s Kiger had a passion for racing and it was on ATVs at that time. After competing in the GNCC for some time, Kiger decided to focus on his career more so than racing. Due to the timing, GNCC racing was still relatively new in its development stages, so there wasn’t enough factory support to take it serious and make a solid career from racing. “I had to do something to get my career started, so I just gave up racing and put my head down and went to work hard for 20 years,” Kiger said. Now he is the President of SDI (Shaft Drillers International).A couple of years ago GNCC racing started the four classes for the UTV vehicles to compete in the series. After achieving remarkable success in the shaft drilling business, Kiger decided it was time to get back to the track where he enjoyed being around the great people involved in racing. He got his competitive spirit and helmet off the shelf and went out to have some fun.Kiger is very active and helpful not only in his business but in the community as well. He runs with Yokley Racing in GNCC and with Coastal Racing in Best in the Desert. Kiger still resides in Waynesburg, PA as a small town boy who loves to go out and thrash it up on the track!

Yokley grew up in Tompkinsville, Kentucky and still lives there. He started riding at the age of nine and gained experience riding multiple brands and sizes over the years. During his childhood, he enjoyed and respected all types of riding and racing, but focused mostly on motocross.
At the age of fifteen, Yokley started running in GNCC events, and started desert racing at the age of eighteen in the Baja 1000. With a twenty-four year career under his belt, pro class for the last fourteen years, he made the decision to retire from full time racing in the XC1 Pro Class at the end of the 2009 season. This year, he’s am racing in the GNCC UTV Series, as well as focusing more on managing and building the Yokley Racing Team.
He’s been called a Pro Quad racing icon with the most tremendous fans of any Pro Rider. He’s been fortunate to be featured often in the media; ATV magazine publications, broadcast coverage of GNCC events, appearances on Moto World, The Outdoor Channel, GNCC TV, Versus, ATV Television, ESPN2 and ABC, along with various websites and magazines. Yokley has been featured on GNCC TV within select sponsors “Feature Product of the Week” segments, on GNCCcast.com giving video race recaps, and frequent articles and interviews on ATVriders.com.
An area of my career he’s really excited about is his work with sponsors on product development. They are some of the most important companies serving the ATV and UTV industry. He helps sponsors as a performance tester of their products for both racing and recreational uses. Because racing has been a lifelong passion, Yokley’s experience gives him a unique insight about how a part or product performs under different terrain and weather conditions. This intuition allows him to give feedback to a manufacturer that is invaluable to engineering adjustments with extraordinary results in performance and safety.

Matt Parks grew up in Riverside California and raced motocross in the very competitive southern California racing scene. Parks is a Powersports industry veteran and despite being very close to the business side of UTVs, he continues to be an avid racing enthusiast.
Early on Parks saw the potential for recreation UTVs and he is credited with building the very first race RANGER. He raced his RANGER in 2006 and 2007 and earned several top positions, despite his RANGER being mostly stock and built off of a utility platform. The highlight of his early UTV racing was being the first UTV to finish and win a SCORE Baja event, the 2007 SCORE Tecate Baja 250.
Parks took a couple of years off of UTV racing in 2008 and 2009 to race full size buggies in Best In the Desert and SCORE. In 2010, he jumped back into Pro UTV racing and he had the idea to build a RZR 4 into a two seat race RZR. Despite his racing efforts being self-funded, he won his very first race in new RZR 4 in late 2010 and went on to win five of the next eight races. Parks earned the 2011 Best In The Desert Pro UTV Championship and also was the BITD UTV ‘Grand Champion.’ In 2012, Parks switched to the factory Polaris/Jagged X team. While he was always a contender in 2012 and lead nearly every race at one point, small problems knocked him back. In the end, he won two of the six Best In The Desert races in 2012 , got second at the 553 mile long Vegas to Reno. Ultimately, he got third place in the championship just seven points out of first. For 2013, Parks will continue to race for the Jagged X team, but will switch from Best In The Desert to race the grueling SCORE Baja race series, in its new Pro UTV class, with Jason Spiess as his long term co-dog..
Parks lives in Newport Beach California, with his wife and two sons.
