“Is it even possible to have a big name UTV event and not have FOX as part of it? FOX has been great to UTVUnderground.com and they are one of the sports biggest assets as it pertains to supporting the UTV race community. When we sat down with FOX the question wasn’t what can the UTV World Championship do for them, but rather what can FOX do to help us grow the event and support their customers. We are grateful to have their support!“ stated UTVUnderground.com CEO and Founder Joey D.” DiGiovanni
The four-day event format will feature one full day of racing, contingency and tech in downtown Laughlin, demo and enthusiast rides, and a business-to-business UTV industry summit.
