Seth Quintero's Best in the Desert Parker 250 Race Report

San Marcos, CA (1/12/2018) - Red Bull / Polaris RZR’s Seth Quintero began his warm up for the Mint 400 during the season opening Parker 250 Best in the Desert Race. Quintero was running in the UTV Production 1000 class during the short course race held on the first of two days of competition.

Quintero rolled out his UTVUnderground 2017 WORCS Polaris RZR stock UTV for the class. Though he was a little down on power for the class, he ran hard and learned a lot.

“It was good to get some seat time and come out and have some fun,” said Quintero. “I ran my 2017 WORCS Stock car. I tried to give them a run for their money. They were a little faster down the straights..’ We tried to go for the win, but we couldn’t quite get it.” Im very proud of my finish. From starting dead last to finishing 5th in class and 7th overall!

Quintero was pleased with his BFGoodrich Tires and his Walker Evans Suspension. With a lot of sharp rocks and tight turns on the short course, they gave him the confidence to run fast.

“My BFGoodrich Tires ran great today,” said Quintero. “There are a lot of sharp rocks out there, and the tires really held up well. They allowed me to go into the corners with confidence. The Walker Evans Suspension worked great. I could flow through all the bumps with ease.”

Quintero is currently in the process of building a brand new 2018 Polaris RZR to compete in the Mint 400. Though he will start toward the back of the field, anything can happen in that race, and he’s ready for a strong showing.

“My debut with the car will be the Mint 400 where we’re going to try to give them a run for their money,” said Quintero. “We’ll be starting at the back because we don’t have any points, but we’ll see what happens.”

Quintero will make his Mint 400 debut when the race bows March 8-11 in Las Vegas.
