Todd Elmer, 1981. Driving one of just three 79 RXL’s from 1979. Two machines were sent into battle with Rotax motors and were the last race machines built at Polaris during the Starfire Kids era, the other was a prototype created for the 1979 production RXL that never went into production.
This sled was originally built for Doug Hayes to race at Eagle River, where unfortunately, it hit the wall. It was altered heavily right after Eagle River, and Tim Bender raced it two times in the end of the 1979 season, and Todd Elmer got it for 1980.
