UTV Invasion Show ‘n Shine Winning Polaris Z1 RZR

UTV Invasion Show ‘n Shine Winning Polaris Z1 RZR

Not to take away from any of the big name builders in the industry but its always impressive to find a DIY guy who builds a one of a kind RZR in his spare time.  Particularly because these weekend warriors usually have day jobs that have nothing to do with the UTV industry. They’re just passionate enthusiasts looking to build their dream machine.

Chris Martin is one of the passionate individuals and his day job, a logger in Western Oregon, certainly has nothing to do with the UTV industry.  Chris and his family made the long trip from Roseburg Oregon to attend the 3rd annual Idaho UTV Invasion and ended up taking 1st place in the weekend warrior class of the Super ATV Show ‘n Shine.

We had the chance to hit the dunes just before sunset to snap a few pics of Chris and more importantly, ride around in this beautiful custom Z1 RZR.  Check out the full list of specs and don’t forget to look at all the photos below.
