Minneapolis, MN (June 5, 2018) – Polaris RZR® Factory Racing dominated the historic 50th BFGoodrich Tires SCORE Baja 500 for second straight year to build on its unparalleled 2018 season. After battling through 530 miles of Mexico’s Baja California Peninsula the team secured two clean sweeps in both the Pro UTV Forced Induction and Pro UTV NA classes, along with making history with the first woman to win the overall UTV race at Baja 500.
