The High Lifter team, along with their friends and family from the south, brought the fun Minnesota once again. This time at a new location, ERX Motor Park in Elk River, for the first-ever High Lifter ERX Offroad Rally! We loaded up our mud machines and made the trek up north to join in on the fun June 9th – June 13th for a full-fledged weekend of riding, camping, live music, and a ton of activities and entertainment. Boy, High Lifter and ERX did not disappoint!
From live music and the spin the prize wheel to a sled pull and a full-blown obstacle course, High Lifter kept the weekend jampacked full of great entertainment!
One of our favorite events is the Bounty Hole, where the biggest and baddest UTVs and ATVs take on the muddy pit for the fastest time. The big machines always put on a great show!
Another big highlight was the ATV Big Air Tour. Extreme sports athletes launched dirt bikes, BMX bikes, ATVs, and even a UTV into the air, sending it off a jump to a landing pad and doing some killer tricks for the crowd.
X Games Freestyle gold medalist Colten Moore sent a Polaris RZR off the jump as his part of the show. Colten transitioned to a UTV from ATV racing and freestyle snowmobiling after a long rehabilitation from a crash which resulted in a dislocated T-12 vertebra and bruised spinal cord. It was great to see Colten back on his feet and continuing to fulfill his passion for extreme motorsports.
Down on vendor row, you’ll find some great local vendors and many aftermarket parts companies set up. Each offering a look at their latest products, as well as visiting with fans and customers. Several of our favorite UTV accessory companies were present including, Rockford Fosgate, Thumper Fab, MB Quart, KFI Products, EPI Performance Parts, and of course High Lifter Products.
Shout out to Rockford Fosgate for adjusting our Polaris General audio system, trail riding never sounded so good! THANKS GUYS!
The Monsters of the South crew was present as well. They made the long trip up north from far down south to hang out with fans, help with the event and represent their sponsors which include High Lifter, Dragonfire Racing, Quad Boss, ZBroz Racing, Rockford Fosgate, Thumper Fab, Gator Waders, and more! We got a chance to check out their latest build, a Can-Am Defender Limited completely decked out!
Polaris and Can-Am were also present, each showing off their latest fleet of machines and hanging out with fans. As always, Can-Am comes in clutch with free event T-shirts. I made sure to get my Can-Am Minnesota tee from this event.
ERX Motor Park has a reputation for being one of the best off-road racing facilities in the nation. From UTVs and trophy trucks to motocross, snowmobile racing, and even concerts, they host a ton of large events. The High Lifter ERX Rally, however, was the first event they’ve ever opened the park to free reign UTV and ATV riding for attendees. It was fun to explore the park! They have plenty of mud holes to hit, ponds to drive in and an active quarry on-site to play in. High Lifter even built a sandy beach just for this event, it was fun to hang and swim. There are a few great loops to ride and we hear ERX is expanding and building more trails! They have plenty of camping, great facilities, and even a clubhouse where you can get cold drinks! ERX is a great place for sure, we’d love to come back soon!
All in all, the High Lifter ERX Offroad Rally was a total blast! One thing that’s for sure, High Lifter knows how to throw one hell of a party. Between the riding, swimming, and entertainment, there was definitely no shortage of fun!
