2017 Rally in the Pines Recap

Rally in the Pines 2017 took place in Mackay Idaho July 6th-9th. Mackay is a town of 517 people. This event had over 1,500 in attendance. As you can imagine, there wasn’t a single open camp site, hotel or parking spot in the entire town. This surge of people only added to the excitement of the UTV/ATV specific event as the promoters, Bam Film Productions, rolled out their well-planned schedule and coordinated with the 40 vendors on site including RT Pro.


This event spread over four days. Each day had lots of activity including guided and self-guided rides, a night ride, raffles, giveaways, a luncheon, a dinner, best of show contest and even a UTV parade where participants could “decorate” their UTV’s for fun and there were some great entries! There was also a free ice cream social for all in attendance including, vendors and riders. This was a great way for the public to meet and get to know the vendors in their industry. We met some great people at this family friendly event.


RT Pro was set up at this event with a great display of products and one of our 4 seat XP Turbo RZR’s with all the RT products we trust on our rides to get us home every time. We were running our new RZR XP Turbo Replacement Spring Kit on the stock shocks this weekend. After several people joined us on rides the overall impression was they couldn’t believe how much better a properly designed spring kit could make a RZR ride. The rides took us over dirt roads, trails and even a few rock crawling sections and the RT Pro springs and improved geometry from our A-Arms and Trailing Arms definitely made a noticeable difference in ride quality, handling and ground clearance over the stock UTV’s we were riding with.


Rally in the Pines was a lot of fun and we got to meet some new friends and customers. We’d like to thank Bam Film Productions for putting this on and recommend this event to anyone around the Mackay area to check out next year.
