www.PowersportsBusiness.com The American and National League teams will be treated to some over-the-top UTV builds during Major League Baseball's All- Star game this summer. The builds, by The Diesel Brothers and Joey D. of UTVUnderground, feature a 2017 Polaris RZR XP 4 Turbo and Ranger Crew 1000. ITP OFF-ROAD RACERS POST 1-2 FINISH IN BAJA, MEXICO Justin Lambert piloted his ITP Ultra Cross- equipped Polaris RZR to a Pro UTV class victory at the SCORE International Baja 500 race in Baja, Mexico. Lambert domi- nated the class, winning by almost 50 min- utes. Branden Sims finished second, giving ITP a 1-2 finish. "The Baja 500 is one of the most gruel- ing off-road races there is, so to have ITP- supported racers deliver a 1-2 finish against an exceptionally talented field of entrants is really gratifying," said Rhett Turpin, head of ITP sales at The Carlstar Group. "The ITP Ultra Cross R Spec is not only the tire of choice for Justin Lambert and many of the elite desert racing teams, it's also the obvi- ous choice for any enthusiast seeking the same confidence, performance and reliability these top teams have grown to appreciate. And, the Ultra Cross R Spec is readily avail- able in a variety of size options to meet your individual needs, all produced to the same specifications." "The Baja 500 is known to be one of the roughest off-road races in the world," Lam- bert said. "We were on a mission; our game plan took us to an overall UTV win at the Baja 500. To win the toughest off-road races, you must have the toughest tires. ITP Tires for the win!"
