Robby Gordon has been involved in driving,
designing, and building race cars and trucks for
His racing experiences have included
just about everything from off-road to Indy
car, NASCAR to Dakar, and lately with their huge rise in
popularity, UTVs. It should come as no surprise to anyone
that he is now launching a new UTV under his own
brand, SPEED UTV. However, this is not Gordon’s first UTV
project. That actually started almost 20 years ago.
“Around 2003 I took John Menard, who was on the
board of directors at Polaris, out for a ride in a Yamaha
Rhino.” said Gordon. “While we were talking, he asked me
if I thought I could design a UTV. I immediately answered,
‘in my sleep.’ I had built my first Trophy Truck back in
1989 and built the Riviera Trophy Truck in ‘92.” Gordon
also commented that he recently built a new SCORE
Trophy Truck that he will debut at the first event of the
2020 SCORE-International race season.
“That first UTV design that John and I talked about became
the Polaris RZR, which originally stood for
‘Robby-Z-Ride,’ not Razor,” he said.
