Only Wayne Matlock, one of the great stars of America’s Side by Side, where he has conquered several low 1,000 mile races and several trials of the Best in The Desert, finished 12th  in his Polaris RZR. Matlock has “infiltrated” the top 20 with his RZR and is the only non-Can Am and only vehicle not using J. Juan Brakes to reach that group.

Likewise, the 11 stages contested so far have been dominated by four teams that use J. Juan Brakes.. South Racing Can Am has won 7 stages (Chaleco Lopez (6) and Khalifa Al Attitah). Monster Energy has won 4 stages (Austin Jones (2), Aron Domzala and Reynaldo Varela). One stage each has been won by FN Speed (Saleh Alsaif) and SNAG Racing Team (Sergei Kariakin).
