RZR XP Turbos also finished on the podium in the Desert Race with Team RZR's Justin Lambert finishing second and Mark Holz taking third.
The youth races saw an increase in entries with more than 50 total entrants, up from 24 last year. Youth racers took to the track in the RZR 170 EFI and the new ACE 150 EFI for some fun racing. In the Youth 250, Dallas Gonzalez took the win and in the Youth 170 race, Luke Knupp topped the podium.
