Apparently, rode by D.J. Eckstrom in 2004 at three races. The Polaris guys were very hush-hush about it. You could see it was basically formed at this point. You have to wonder if the hood was different in order just to try to camouflage it.

Very cool pics for sure, wonder where this one ended up?
