finish in the Pro XC1 SXS class at the
Camp Coker GNCC
Visibility was poor due to dust, but a good finish
in the first race put Miller on the front row
for the start. He was quick out of start and held
second for most of the race despite the rough
and dusty conditions.
“Dust played a huge factor in it,” said Miller.
“I was battling the whole race, but we could only
go as fast as I could see. It all came down to
bottlenecks and small mistakes. I thought the
track would hold together from the morning racing,
but by the time we were on track it was beat.
It was whooped out and rutted pretty badly. It
just became a survival type track where you had
to be careful and protect the equipment.”
Miller has a long relationship with Can-Am and
his Miller Racing team has the experience and
expertise to set up the Maverick right. Proving
its abilities, Can-Am’s finished first and second
Hunter Miller battled through thick dust
from a fourth place start to secure the
2nd spot by the checkered flag
“The Can-Am was awesome, as always,” said Miller.
“We just have that thing dialed in. We just made
a few setup changes to go from the hard packed
track to the rough track here. We thrashed the
heck out of that thing and it didn’t miss a beat.
It’s a proven platform and Can-Am’s going one
two on the roughest track of the year proved that.”
Miller had difficulties last year in XC2. Stepping
up to XC1 this year has shown to be a good step.
He finished fourth in the first race, followed
by the runner-up finish here. Miller will do his
best to stay consistent, finish races and hopefully
get a few wins.
Miller is now tied to 2nd Place in the
points championship with his brother,
“I’m tied with Cody for second which is kind
of fitting,” said Miller. “It’s going to be a
close race all year. My main goal is to finish
all of the races and not get a DNF. I have to
click off a win or two if I want to be in contention.
Starting on the front row made a huge difference.
As long as I can stay up there and not have any
catastrophic mistakes I’ll be right up there.”
Hard work has been paying off for Miller this
year. He has spent countless hours making sure
his Can-Am is perfect this year.
“I’m really doing my homework before the rounds,”
said Miller. “I’m making sure everything is perfect.
I know the machine is perfect. I just need to
make sure not to make any mistakes driving.”
Ever the racer, Miller hopped a plane Sunday
morning, and headed to Crafton, Texas for third
round of TORN series, where he topped off his
weekend with his third straight win in the Can-Am
Miller will be back in contention when GNCC heads
to Sunday Creek Raceway in Millfield, OH for the
John Penton. That race is scheduled for May 27-28.
