Hunter Miller Extends GNCC Pro Turbo UTV Points Lead
Hunter Miller's Camp Coker GNCC Pro UTV Race Report

Greenville, TX (4/27/2018) – Can Am/Maxxis/Elka’s Hunter Miller drove his Can-Am Maverick to a second-place finish in the UXC1 Turbo class at the Camp Coker Bullet GNCC. His third podium in as many races allows him to pad his points lead at the midpoint of the season.

Miller had to negotiate one of the roughest courses yet this season. He put in another hard charge and his Can-Am took everything thrown at it in style.

“That was the roughest UTV race I’ve ever done; I can’t even begin to describe it,” said Miller. “The Can-Am was awesome today. I drove the wheels off it and it held together. I was trying to be smart and just get the car to the finish line.”

During the track walk, Miller discussed making changes to the shock settings with Double E’s George White. White recommended staying with the more aggressive settings. That move, along with running Maxxis Big Horn 2.0 tires, allowed him to have the perfect suspension setup for the conditions with plenty of traction.

“The whole track gave the Elka suspension quite a work out,” said Miller. “The Elka shocks combined with the Double E tuning are unstoppable. George White and I thought about making some changes. He said to leave it alone and I’m glad we did. The Maxxis tires were amazing and we were running the best tire for the sand. We never got hung up or stuck.”

Miller also had to fight through a hard hit to the face during the race. On the second lap, a rock flew up and hit him in the eye, causing him to finish the race with quite a shiner.

“That almost made me pull over,” said Miller. “I felt like I got punched in the face. My eye is swollen and turning black, but Adam talked me through it and I forgot about it on the next lap.”

Miller now has a 13-point lead in the championship. With just three races left, he plans to continue to implement his consistent strategy.

“I’m just trying to be smart and be on the podium in every race,” said Miller. “I’ve got two thirds and a second and that gives me the points lead. We’re halfway through and we’ll try to take it home.”

Miller will return to the GNCC Series when it runs its next UTV race at the John Penton. That race, held at Sunday Creek Raceway in Millfield, OH, is scheduled for May 26-27.
