Minneapolis, January 12, 2011
- To open the first Best in the Desert race of 2011, the Parker 250, Jagged X chose to run their champion-winning former project X rock crawler to ring in the new race year. The No. 1919 did what it does best, win!
Jagged X had to overcome a poor starting draw of 12th and 15 other side-by-sides to take the checkered flag. The local rains kept the dust to a minimum and gave Brandon Schueler and co-driver Mike West the ability to pick off competitors one-by-one and finish first.
"We are very pleased to begin the year with a win," said Bill Schueler of Jagged X. "This season should prove to be a very exciting one and we are excited to debut our new car in April."
The Jagged X / Polaris Racing team will roll out a whole new race package for the Bilek Racing Silver State "300" in April.
