NEW UTV MUD TIRE GUIDE
MURRAY RACING SCORES
While Rhys Millen won the 49th annual SCORE Baja
1000 overall and UTV Pro class in his RZR XP 1000,
the real drama was in the Pro UTV Forced Induction
class. Branden Sims came back from injury to win the
Turbo class and take second overall, but the points
race was between Marc Burnett (Pol), Mike Cafro (Pol)
and Derek Murray (C-A), who sat third in points going
into the 1000. Consistency is the key to desert racing,
and brothers Derek and Jason Murray added Logan
Gastel as a co-driver in the Maverick X3 X rs. While
their rivals broke, Team Murray finished a conservative
sixth to win the SCORE UTV Turbo championship.
They actually tied Brandon Schueler (Pol) at 316 series
points, but took the title in the tie-breaker (second at
San Felipe 250).
Murray Racing traded in the Maverick Max 1000R X ds Turbo for
the new Maverick X3 X rs Turbo for the 49th SCORE Baja 1000 and
ended up with the Pro UTV Forced Induction championship. They also
won their second straight SCORE Milestone Award for completing every
mile of every race.
AS BIG AS THEY COME
Single-cylinder, 700cc UTVs and twin-cylinder
1000s are big-bore machines, but the biggest
cylinder bore on a stock off-road machine belongs
to Suzuki’s KingQuad 750 4x4 ATV. At 104mm, the
piston is more than 4 inches across!
As you can see from
this photo from
Suzuki’s factory in
Georgia, the cylinder
on Suzuki’s KingQuad
750 is massive!
