Hunter Miller Kicks off 2017 GNCC UTV Season Fourth
Hunter Miller Wild Boar GNCC UTV Race Report

Greenville, TX (3/15/2017) – Hunter Miller proved his runner-up finish in last year’s GNCC Series finale wasn’t a fluke, as he started off the 2017 season with a fourth-place finish in the season opening Wild Boar GNCC in Palatka, FL. Driving his familiar Can-Am Maverick, Miller stepped up the XC1 Pro UTV class this season.

Can-Am's Hunter Miller started off the 2017 season with a fourth-place finish in the season opening Wild Boar GNCC in Palatka, FL

With rough track conditions, Miller started on the third row with an eye on a top five. He more than succeeded and survived the difficult race.

“This was a lot better than I finished last year,” said Miller. “This track is so beat up that getting around it was a battle in itself. I just wanted to finish in the top five so I can start on the front row at the next race and move on from there.”

Miller was happy to move up from XC2, especially because he can run Elka shocks on his Can-Am. The suspension, combined with Maxxis Tires and DWT Wheels gave him the speed and endurance he needed.

“We did a lot of suspension testing in the off season and the car was working great,” said Miller. “DWT just came out with a new line of Sector wheels that are super strong. Maxxis tires are the go-to tire for anyone out here. They are the best. I’m running Elka shocks and that helped a good bit with some tuning help from Double E Suspension. The Can-Am Maverick is a proven package. The car is awesome.”

This year marks the first that Hunter has split from his brother Cody. Cody Miller is running with another manufacturer, though the two are still working together. Certainly, some good old fashioned brotherly competition is brewing this year. Cody Miller finished second at Wild Boar. Look for the two to battle it out as the season moves on.

“This is how I wanted to race and I finished,” said Hunter Miller. “That was the main thing. Hopefully I can go a little further forward.”

Miller will be back, and starting on the front row, when GNCC heads to Moree’s Sportsman’s Preserve in Society Hill, SC April 22-23.
