PROVEN | UTV World Championships Winners

Over 250 drivers entered this year’s UTV World Championship known as the world’s biggest UTV race. Held in Lake Havasu City in Arizona, the best UTV racers on the planet gathered for a chance to win the title of UTV World Champion. Races were split between two days and included four Youth Classes, four Short course classes and six Desert classes. At the end of the race many Method Race Wheels athletes took home the win in multiple classes.

First up,is the Desert Pro Turbo class where Method Race Wheel athletes swept all three podiums. Ryan Piplic in his T815 RZR takes home first, Justin Lambert in the T918 RZR takes second and Branden Sims in the T913 RZR finishes third.

Ryan Piplic says, “This year’s UTV World Championship was by far the toughest most challenging track to date! We had no time to rest we had everything from endless miles of washboard, huge rocks and race ending dangers. Then to add to that dust and sunset going into the night made it extremely challenging! We came home with the win and zero issues with our wheels. And we hit just about everything as fast as we could. My wheels were the last of my worries! Lighter stronger faster!”

Last but not least in the Youth 570 class, Ethan Groom and his Y911 RZR takes first place clocking a total time of 48:02.809. His fastest lap was blistering 11:55.782 and an average lap of 12:00.702. In the Pro NA and Pro Unlimited class Dodge Poelman takes first and Kaden Wells finishes strong with second place behind Dodge by 10:55.363.
