Kyle Chaney Debuts Can-AM X3 Turbo in GNCC Opener
Kyle Chaney's Big Buck GNCC UXC1 UTV Race Report

Pataskala, OH (02/27/2018) - Can-Am/XPS Lubricants/CT Raceworx driver Kyle Chaney debuted his new Can-Am X3 Turbo in SXS XC1 Pro GNCC competition during the Big Buck GNCC in Union City, SC. Chaney was running what was easily a podium pace when contact with a lapped car ended his day early.

The race-ready Can-Am X3 has significantly more horsepower and better handling than last year’s car and Chaney caught the back end of the amateur classes before some of those racers had even started. He said the lower lap times have made it difficult for both classes to share a racetrack.

“We’re getting to the point where we can’t race with the amateurs,” said Chaney. “It’s not fair for them or for us. We’re not having a good clean race, and they’re having to watch their backs all race. We had a problem on lap four when we got into a lapper. I gave him a couple of taps, and it created a suspension issues.”

Chaney is excited to be able to compete in the X3 in GNCC, something that was made possible just this year. He’ll now be able to race the same car in every series in which he competes. The ride is now working on a triple crown, racing in desert, short course and now in cross country competition.

“The X3 platform is definitely designed for racing,” said Chaney. “It’s faster and it handles better. The speed we can get in these things in large part comes from the handling. My car was definitely a podium contending car today, but I got a little antsy, got into a lapper, and it ended in a DNF. That’s the first-round blues, but we will be back.”

Chaney ran Maxxis Big Horn 3.0 tires in the event and they remained a solid performer. His Fox Shocks were dialed in for the event.

“The Maxxis tires worked really well,” said Chaney. “We’re going to do some tire testing down in Florida to determine what size and tread pattern we want to use for Wild Boar. Fox does a great job and had my shocks working really well.”

Chaney is planning full seasons in both TORC and GNCC this year, as well as running the Heartland Challenge and select IXCR events. Next up is the Wild Boar GNCC being held at Hogwaller in Palatka, FL March 10-11.
