Can-Am side-by-side vehicle and ATV racers continue to change the face of off-road racing with yet another dominating performance, winning in four different series this weekend across North America.
Cody Miller Wins WORCS Round 5
Factory Can-Am XPS racer Cody Miller notched his first SxS Pro class win of the season in the World Off-Road Championship Series (WORCS) held in Mesquite, Nev. The Texas native completed all seven laps in a little more than one hour to earn 25 points in his chase for a series championship. He now has 99 points and four podiums in five racers this season behind the wheel of his turbocharged Maverick X3 Turbo R. Hunter Miller joined his brother on the podium, earning second place, giving Can-Am a 1-2 finish in the class.
“We couldn’t be prouder to have finally taken a 1-2 WORCS SXS Pro class finish,” said Cody Miller, a former two-time national cross-country champion. “The real secret to our success is the Can-Am Maverick X3 and our supporting sponsors.”
Chaney Victorious at SxS Sports Spring Nationals
Kyle Chaney (Can-Am XPS) won moto two of the Pro Mod SxS A main event at the Monster Energy Chasing The Triple 2019 Spring Nationals held at Dirt City Motor Complex in Lena, Wis. Due to weather concerns, the promoters were forced to alter the weekend schedule and run both moto one and moto two on Saturday.
Chaney had an issue in the first moto but rebounded strongly to take the victory in the second moto. He completed 13 laps in a time of 19:05.771 in his Can-Am Maverick X3 Turbo R to easily outdistance the competition. Scottie Lawrence (Can-Am XPS) joined Chaney on the box to give Can-Am another strong 1-2 finish.
“The Can-Am Maverick X3 just killed today in the second moto and this track is awesome,” said Chaney. “After moto one, I was really pressing for the win and had to remind myself to trust the car and it worked out for us.”
Weller Takes Round Two and Points Lead In Mexico
Arizona racer Corry Weller won the UTV Turbo class at round two of the Lucas Oil Off-Road Regional Racing Series (LOORRS) events held May 18-19, at Estero Beach Resort in Ensenada, Mexico. Weller, who competed in her Can-Am Maverick X3 Turbo R, is seeking to repeat as the class champion. She left the Baja Peninsula as the class points leader heading into round 4.
Can-Am Renegade 4×4 Pros Sweep Wiseco John Penton
Can-Am Renegade X xc 1000R racers Jordan Phillips, Landon Wolfe and Rob Smith battled the mud and each other for four grueling laps at the 30th annual Wiseco John Penton Grand National Cross Country (GNCC) race in Millfield, Ohio. Phillips tallied his first 4×4 Pro class win of the season, ending Can-Am teammate Landon Wolfe’s season winning streak at five races. However, the runner-up finish helped Wolfe maintain his class points lead heading into round seven. Robert Smith finished third in the class to give him three podiums in 2019.
Can-Am ATV racers also swept the podiums in the other five GNCC ATV 4×4 classes.
