“Hunter and Cody Miller had an outstanding weekend in Oklahoma, winning three total classes and showcasing the versatility and capabilities of the Can-Am Maverick 1000R side-by-side vehicle,” said Jeff Leclerc, Racing Project Leader, Can-Am.

The 18th Annual Oklahoma Gold Rush was held Nov. 1-3 at The Hallett Motor Speedway in Jennings, Okla. The event hosted both ATV and UTV cross-country and Super Moto events.

The ATV and UTV XC events were designed similar to Grand Prix-style events, complete with wooded sections, technical terrain and a shorter asphalt sector. The Super Moto races were roughly eight laps in length and featured an asphalt course with a small dirt segment with a couple smaller jumps.

In the UTV XC event, Hunter Miller and co-pilot Johnny Hale started in fourth place, but gained one spot once they hit the asphalt section on lap one. Hunter was roughly a minute down at this point in the race.

From there, he pushed his Can-Am Maverick, reeling in the leader after each lap. Finally, on the final turn of the race, Hunter took an aggressive line and made a pass for the victory. Chase Snapp, piloting a Can-Am Commander, finished second behind Miller.

“My Maverick was dialed in and worked great for the entire race,” said Hunter Miller. “It really shined in the woods and rough spots and was a big advantage on the track¬ís pavement sections. I just kept driving hard each lap until I caught the leader with roughly 200 yards or so remaining. I then drove aggressively through the last turn, made a big pass, and came away with the UTV XC victory.”

Riding their DS 450 ATVs, Hunter and Cody went 1-2 in the ATV XC race at Gold Rush. However, Cody Miller also earned an overall victory, winning the UTV Super Moto with his Can-Am Maverick 1000R X rs. He also earned third in the ATV Super Moto event.
