Spring SXS National UTV Race Report
Pataskala, OH (5/16/2018) -
Can-Am/XPS Lubricants/CT Raceworx driver Kyle
Chaney brought out a Can-Am Maverick that was
so new it had no graphics, and swept both Pro
Modified events during the SXS Spring Nationals.
The special two-day event was held at US Air Motorsports
Raceway in Shawano, WI.
The event was the brainchild of Johnny and CJ
Greaves, as well as Rodney VanEperen. It was staged
on the asphalt racing surface of a drift car/karting
circuit that led into a short-course dirt track.
Chaney was driving a new Can-Am Maverick X3 just
built for his GNCC program. Utilizing an EVO tune,
he was over three seconds faster than the rest
of the field in qualifying. In Saturday’s race
he led every lap from the pole. On Sunday, Chaney
started fourth due to the invert, took second
on lap two and the lead one lap later. He wasn’t
challenged from there.
“I didn’t feel super confident on the pavement
at first,” said Chaney. “I think it’s just about
staying smooth and in control. The pavement definitely
throws an obstacle into the racing we’re not used
to. It’s another thing to learn from and makes
us better drivers.”
Chaney’s competitive Can-Am was unbeatable all
weekend. After lowering the ride height at the
beginning of the weekend, his team made no changes
to the car.
“My car did awesome this weekend,” said Chaney.
“We just put fuel in the car and went out ran
it. These EVO-tuned cars are just so fast. I have
to give it up to them.
The car did amazing. Hopefully we can take it
out to GNCC in two weeks and get another win.”
Chaney was running the Maxxis Ceros tires. They
are his go-to tire in GNCC, and they worked perfectly
here, even on the pavement.
“The Maxxis Ceros are always good on the dirt,
and they hooked up great on the asphalt,” said
Chaney. “The car went everywhere I wanted to.”
Chaney will return to GNCC competition when the
series holds its next UTV race, May 26-27 at the
John Penton at Sunday Creek Raceway in Millfield,
