LAS VEGAS, NV (Dec. 21, 2010) Casey Folks, Director of Best in the Desert Racing Association, announced that the John Deere Gator™ has been named the “Official UTV” of the Best in the Desert Racing Association. Folks made the announcement today, leading up to the kick-off of the 2011 racing season.
“I am pleased and excited to tell the racing world about this new sponsorship with John Deere,” said Folks. “The Best in the Desert Racing Series is the perfect venue to showcase the Gator Crossover Utility Vehicles (XUVs) and their off-road capabilities. To have a company like John Deere get involved in support of our series means a great deal and the Gator XUV will be a key asset for course setup and maintenance in the vast and harsh desert terrain we race in.”
“The relationship between the John Deere Gator and Best in the Desert is a great fit, as the new 2011 line of XUVs deliver an unparalleled balance between performance and work,” commented David Gigandet, Utility Vehicles Marketing Manager, John Deere. “We have been warmly welcomed by the Best in the Desert racing teams and fans alike, and we are excited by their reaction to our new Gator™ XUV 825i, the fastest and most powerful Gator ever produced.”
Folks and Gigandet agree that the Best in the Desert Series offers an ideal place to demonstrate the Gator’s quality, durability and new high performance capabilities.
