Polaris Returns as Supporting Sponsor of 2023 California 300
Extending a longstanding relationship with Martelli Brothers-produced events, Polaris will return as an official partner of the 2023 California 300, coming to Barstow, California on October 4-8. Headlined by the dozens of Polaris RZRs that will compete in the action itself, Polaris will have an extensive presence throughout the Great Golden State Off-Road Race.
“Polaris was a huge supporter of the inaugural California 300 last year, and we’re excited to have them back for 2023,” said California 300 CEO Matt Martelli. “Our relationship with Polaris extends throughout many of our events and projects, and they’ve been a regular presence on the top step of the podium of our races, including last year’s California 300. We’re looking forward to their continued support in this year’s event!”
Last year’s inaugural California 300 saw Polaris RZRs take the top six overall spots in the race, led by Mitch Guthrie Jr. in his Polaris RZR Pro R with a four-lap time of 6:12:51. RZRs also took the top spots in the UTV Pro Turbo class with Mike Cafro and UTV Pro NA class with Tyler Krepsz, as well as multiple additional wins in Sportsman, Short Course, and Youth classes. Polaris will be represented up and down the entry list at this year’s event, from 2023 Mint 400 class winner Ryan Piplic headlining the UTV PR-100 class to dozens of youth racers starting their off-road careers in RZRs of their own.
