When asked about his stellar performance this weekend Martin stated, "It was awesome to be able to put this Polaris on top, I knew what I had to do this weekend and as the race went on I knew my chances of winning were there and I didn't want to get over excited. I just kept reminding myself to ride smart until the checkers flew. We have done all the right things to this Polaris Outlaw; I know I will finish out the year strong."

Dave Porter who has been Martin's mechanic all season added, "In talking with Daryl Rath I told him I had some really good ideas that would put some more power to the ground, we agreed and it turned out my ideas were spot on. I am excited for Martin, Polaris, Rath Racing and myself for being able to be part of something like this. Martin works so hard and has always had the best attitude, he is one of the best if not the best rider I have ever worked with."

Rath went on to add, "Casey has continued to get extremely comfortable on the Outlaw. He feels the bike is a contender and the changes we are making now are really just small adjustments to keep him out front."

Rath explains that he started up a relationship with K&N back in 2008, at the same time his team resumed racing for Polaris. "We use quite a few K&N Filters and cleaners in all our race vehicles,from the Polaris Outlaw 450 , the MX and TT , the Polaris Sportsman 850XP, and our RZR's. We also utilize K&N products in all our tow vehicles."
