Nitro Circus Team To Drive
Cross County in UTV
Rowland set to drive Polaris RZR 5,000 Miles
- Nitro Circus Team Member Hubert Rowland
will embark on a more than 5,000-mile cross-country
UTV drive at the end of July (formal date to be
announced) leaving from the South Carolina coast.
Traveling 200 miles per day, his goal is to reach
the Oregon coast within four to six weeks.
Rowland not only serves as action sports legend
Travis Pastrana's mechanic but is also a stunt
man himself. Additionally, he is an engineering
mastermind and renowned track builder for Nitro
Circus, Monster Energy AMA Supercross, Monster
Jam, X Games, Global Rally Cross and several other
Rowland will be behind the wheel of a Polaris
RZR XP Turbo, with a second personality in a Polaris
RZR XP 1000. A third vehicle, the Polaris General,
will be driven by guest celebrities joining for
select segments.Pastrana will be one of the celebrities
making an appearance. Additional celebrities will
be announced at a
later date. Two additional friends will ride-along
and rotate driving on the journey.
"I've been involved in a lot of first-time
things [such as stunts for Nitro Circus], and
it's been a lot of trial and error," Rowland
said. "This will be another first. Nobody
has ever driven a UTV from coast to coast."
Rowland wants to have fun and show people that
there are different ways to travel across the
country, all while gaining a better understanding
and appreciation of different communities throughout
Off-road enthusiasts are able to set out on more
adventurous trips thanks to innovations from brands
like Western Powersports, Sedona Tire and Wheel,
Fly Racing, Polaris, SuperATV, Fox, Assault and
Sandcraft, all who eagerly agreed to back Rowland's
trip. Additional sponsors include Say I Won't
Clothing and Sena
"It will be cool to travel all the way across
country in a vehicle that isn't typically used
for that," Rowland said. "I'm just a
small-town hillbilly from Tennessee who is looking
forward to getting on the trail and sharing stories
with fans along the way."
Off-road enthusiasts are encouraged to live-track
Rowland and his crew on www.huberttrax.com
with the help of LeadNav, and then meet up to
join him on the route with their own side-by-side
His route will begin on the coast of South Carolina
and will pick up the Trans-American Trail starting
inTellaco Plains, Tennessee. He will continue
through Mississippi, Arkansas, Oklahoma, New Mexico,
