Hunter Miller Podiums at Wild Boar GNCC
Hunter Miller's Wild Boar GNCC Pro UTV Race Report

Greenville, TX (03/15/2018) – Can Am/Maxxis/Elka’s Hunter Miller drove his Can-Am Maverick X3 to a third-place finish in the Wild Boar GNCC race in Palatka, FL. Miller was competing in the XC1 Pro Turbo UTV class.

Miller had a great start from the front row, and navigated the deeply rutted and challenging course. He caught the leader, his brother Cody, and actually physically took the lead briefly on the final lap before settling back and finishing third.

“That was the toughest GNCC I’ve done,” explained Miller. “There were a lot of bottlenecks and getting around that track cleanly was a feat in itself. I actually made a pass on Cody on the last lap, but my belt was getting hot and he had a 30-second advantage, so I backed off and let him back by.”

Miller was driving his trusty Can-Am Maverick X3 and it held strong to the very end.
“I drove the crap out of that thing and I never had a single problem,” said Miller. “Usually you have to hold back on a course like that, but we were able to drive it hard and had no issues.”

Knowing that a busy racecourse and a soft sandy racing surface results in ruts, Miller elected to run a taller Maxxis Tire. It was the right choice. “We ran a taller tire because we knew it was going to be pretty rutted out,” said Miller. “The tires worked great and they performed perfectly everywhere.”

Miller’s second-straight third-place finish places him into a three way tie for the points lead. “I’m in a really good position in points because it’s going to be close this year,” said Miller. “I’m hoping to get a couple of wins, but goal is to be up front on the podium at every race. That should put me right there at the end.”

Miller will return to the GNCC Series when it runs its next UTV race at Camp Coker Bullet in South Carolina. That event is scheduled for April 21-22.
