Team Arctic/D&P Performance’s Dean Bulloch and Karl Munford placed second in the Pro UTV Class at the King of the Hammers in Johnson Valley, Calif., in a stock 2015 Arctic Cat Wildcat 700 Sport side-by-side.
The race started with 34 UTVs, and after 120 miles of flying through the sand-washed desert, charging up rock-laden hills and crawling through boulder-strewn canyons, only two of the UTVs finished in the allotted time, including the Wildcat 700 Sport.
“Being the underdog in a brutal race like this makes our successful second place finish even sweeter,” Bulloch said on the podium. “The real story is how tough and capable these 60-inch Wildcat 700 Sports are off the showroom floor! Arctic Cat has built one mean Wildcat, and we just proved it!”
“The Wildcat 700 Sport is relatively new to the 60-inch ROV market for 2015, and we aren’t surprised by its lightweight prowess and durability in these conditions. We’re very proud of the hard work and representation Dean and Karl have put forth for Arctic Cat,” said Tracy Crocker, VP and general manager ATVs. “These guys are great drivers, and their results show what happens when you combine their talent with a great machine.”
Powering the new Wildcat Sport is a 60-plus-hp, liquid-cooled 700 parallel twin cylinder engine designed by Arctic Cat, with a best-in-class power-to-weight ratio.
