Yes it’s true, after 5 years of racing the same UTV, Cory is going Commander! 1000cc that is, look out! This machine hauls mail and butt! Cory Sappington test drove the new Commander 1000XT on 10/27 in the desert around Peoria AZ. After the test drive, Sappington said “I would be crazy not to switch, the Can-Am Commander is the best UTV ever built. This machine takes UTVs to the next level”.
