MAVERICK 1000R SXS MAKES ITS GNCC SERIES DEBUT
Valcourt, Québec, March 19, 2013 – Can-Am® 4×4 ATV racers swept all five 4×4 classes and placed two riders on the overall morning podium at round two of the 2013 AMSOIL Grand National Cross Country (GNCC) series in Washington, Ga. In the first round of side-by-side vehicle racing in Georgia, a total of 11 Can-Am Maverick™1000R racers competed with four Can-Am vehicles earning a podium finish in each of the four GNCC “UTV” classes.
“This was a good debut for the Maverick and we fully expect to improve our results at round two in late April.”
“Having Can-Am ATV racers dominate their morning 4×4 classes and to see Kevin Trantham and Robert Smith on the morning podium was great. It was a good weekend in Georgia overall, as we had numerous podiums, including two for the new Can-Am Maverick 1000R in its GNCC side-by-side racing debut,” said Jimmie O’Dell, Race Manager, Can-Am. “It was a close finish for Kyle Chaney and his Maverick 1000R X® rs in its first GNCC side-by-side event, as he narrowly missed taking the overall race win. This was a good debut for the Maverick and we fully expect to improve our results at round two in late April.”
“I got a good start and my Can-Am Outlander worked awesome,” said Trantham.”
Trantham, the reigning 4×4 Lites class champion, took the holeshot and raced away to a victory aboard his new 2013 Can-Am Outlander 500. He won the class by more than seven minutes, earned the top spot on the 4×4 podium and also earned second on the overall morning podium. Rounding out the 4×4 Lites podium were Can-Am riders Andrew Langston and Scott Day. Continue Reading…
