PROJECT POLARIS GENERAL

-- Polaris’ all-new General 1000 EPS is a huge hit with UTV Action, and we discover new aspects of its capabilities every time we drive it. It’s a fantastic rock crawler with its excellent Engine Braking System (EBS), letting it idle over gnarly rock ledges and down drop-offs, and it crawls at a walking pace in low range. With 12 inches of travel, you want to ease over the larger rock faces and ledges, so a walking pace is the upper limit of the General’s rock-crawling trail speeds. Adding travel to any recreational sport…

Weller's hunger to race began in 2001 where she pitted herself against male racers on motocross tracks. Around the time the Yamaha Rhino came into fruition in 2004 as a 2005 model, Corry and her husband Jason Weller had a feeling that a new bench mark in the off road industry was about to begin, so they started a company called Weller Racing. They focused on building UTV racing engines and by doing so, they built a brand…
