Popularity of UTVs continues to grow like Jack’s beanstalk, but not all UTVs get to experience the grace of carving dune bowls, the thrill of short-course jumps or the sheer speed of desert racing. Many get to shuttle hunters to their camps, deer stands or duck blinds, while others never leave the construction site or see 20 mph. Still, others suffer the indignity of being relegated to hauling hay one way and horse apples the other way. UTVs also do grunt work in other parts of the motorsports industry servicing racing communities. They’re an integral part of the behind-the-scenes world of NASCAR, NHRA drag racing, drag-boat racing and all sorts of American Motorcyclist Association pro racing, with AMA Supercross coming first in the racing season. Every major factory team has its own UTV for shuttling racers, support crew, visiting VIPs and parts, and track personnel use UTVs for all sorts of things, including carrying the T-shirt Gatling gun during opening ceremonies. Here are the UTVs of AMA Supercross, with other racing series to be presented in the near future.
