In an exhilarating display of skill and grit, Sara Price has etched her name in the annals of Dakar Rally history. Achieving a historic win in Stage 10, Price becomes the first American woman to conquer a stage in the grueling race. This milestone puts her in an elite group of female rally raiders, sharing this distinction with legends like Jutta Kleinschmidt and Cristina Gutiérrez.

Competing in her debut Dakar, Sara, behind the wheel of a South Racing-prepared Can-Am Maverick X3, showcased extraordinary talent. Currently in second place overall in the SSV Class, she’s just 20 minutes shy of the lead with two more stages to go.

Price’s journey through Dakar’s unforgiving terrain near AlUla, Saudi Arabia, is nothing short of awe-inspiring. Within three months, this is her second groundbreaking achievement in the World Rally-Raid Championship, having previously become the first American woman to win a stage at the Morocco Rally. Her recent win at Dakar propels her into a league of her own.

But the excitement doesn’t end there. In a remarkable twist of fate, Price’s significant other, Ricky Brabec, a 2020 Dakar Champion in Motos, also clinched first place in Stage 10. This rare occurrence marks the first time in Dakar’s history that a couple has simultaneously topped the podium in different categories.

Adding to the American celebration, Polaris Industries, steered by Xavier de Soultrait, leads the T4 class with their RZR. Their partnership with Loeb Racing brings them closer to a potential triumph, a first for a US OEM in Dakar’s history.

Price, entering Stage 11 in a strong second position in the SSV class and leading in the World Rally-Raid Championship, is determined to continue her exceptional performance.

Reflecting on her historic win, Sara Price expressed her profound joy and pride. “Winning this stage is absolutely amazing. It’s not just about being the first American woman to win a Dakar stage but also becoming the third woman ever to achieve this. It’s a significant moment in history, and I hope to continue making America proud.”

Sara Price’s remarkable journey at the Dakar Rally is a testament to her skill, determination, and pioneering spirit. Her achievement is a beacon of inspiration, not just in the world of UTV racing, but for aspiring female racers everywhere.
