Why do you do it? The adrenaline rush and it’s just as fun as racing a quad.

Besides Side-by-Side Racing, can anyone out there name an affordable racing opportunity that allows a couple to race together?

Other than desert racing an expensive trophy truck or possibly driving a car in a scavenger hunt cannonball-type event, there isn’t anything similar and according to my sources, none anywhere near as fun. So perhaps the better question to ask is which series and what kind of UTV do you and your wife or girlfriend compete in?

After talking with friend Jamie Jones (multi-time ATV Scene Girl model) about her and her new fiancé’s racing program, I’m feeling really proud of how our little ATV riding and racing sport has evolved through the years. Now more than ever, no other sport category offers such a diversified opportunity of off-road fun!

So seriously, how many couples out there are taking the WORCS, GNCC or perhaps another series up on their new UTV racing offer? Why do you do it? Has it helped your relationship? Post a picture of the two of you with your machine, mention your most memorable moment, list your sponsors and let’s encourage other couples to get out there and embrace ATV racing’s hot-new vehicle.

proarmor_jones_flora_01Couples like Casey and Jamie are now spending more time sitting here than they do on their living room couches. You can do the same. Look to the GNCC, WORCS or your local ATV racing series for more information on how to get started.
