driver Scottie Lawrence scored a fourth and a
third-place finish in the SXS Pro Modified mains
during the SXS Midwest Spring Nationals at US
Air Motorsports Raceway in Shawano, WI. Lawrence
was driving a Can-Am Maverick X3 in the event.
Motorsports' Scottie Lawrence secured a
podium finish in the Turbo class on Sunday
at the Midwest Spring SXS National
The two-day event was put together by Johnny
Greaves, CJ Greaves, and Rodney VanEperen as a
way to kick off the Midwest short course off road
racing season. It was staged on the asphalt racing
surface of a drift car/karting circuit that led
into a purpose-built short-course dirt track.
Lawrence was driving the same Can-Am in which
Kyle Chaney won the 2017 TORC Pro Modified Championship.
In Saturday’s event, Lawrence made progress throughout
the day, learning the nuances of driving on the
asphalt/dirt racing surfaces, and finished fourth
in the main. On Saturday, with some experience
under his belt, he quickly made it to third and
then held off all challengers to score the podium.
“I had a hard time on the asphalt on Saturday,”
explained Lawrence. “Today felt a lot better because
I had some experience with it. There was a lot
of pressure from behind, so I did my best to protect
the inside. This car is just so fast. We’re not
even running it at full power right now. That
EVO tune is something else.”
In Sunday’s race, Lawrence finished behind mentor
Kyle Chaney, who swept the weekend and Cody Miller.
He was awed by sharing the podium with them.
“The two guys I’m up here with are legendary
in the SXS world, so it’s an honor to be up there
with them,” said Lawrence. “Kyle Chaney has been
a huge help to me. When Kyle speaks I listen.”
Lawrence was using the event to prepare for the
Lucas Oil Midwest Series. The four-race Series,
which replaces TORC in the Midwest, kicks off
June 15-17 at Crandon International Off-Road Raceway.
