Minneapolis, September 10, 2008 – Polaris Industries today announced
Polaris Racing will support the Yokley Racing/National Guard race team
for the 2009 Grand National Cross Country (GNCC) season.
"We're excited to add the Yokley Racing/National Guard race team to
our 2009 Outlaw racing roster," said Eric Nault, race team manager for
Polaris. "Along with being a great racer, Yokley is an all-American
guy who appeals to our core consumer and he, as well as the National
Guard, complements Polaris' culture of being an American manufacturer.
This partnership puts us in a great position to compete for the
championship in the Pro XC1 class and Pro-Am XC2 class for 2009."

RANGER RZR. Yokley's teammate, Mark Notman, will race the Outlaw 450
MXR in the Pro-Am Class.
