For the 2012 Season, the TQRA series incorporated
Side-by-Side racing at some rounds and it was
a lot of fun for all. Cody and Hunter Miller
battled back and forth in their Can-Am Commanders
at every race, much to the delight of spectators.
The brothers were so close in points that the
SxS championship came down to the final SxS
moto of the season, which was at round six in
“It was really close between Cody and
I all season long and we have had a blast racing
the Commanders. It was so close, that the championship
came down to the last moto in Norman at the
Oklahoma Motorsports Complex. We were really
going at it, bumping and banging, but I managed
to get ahead of Cody and win the last moto and
the championship. It was so much fun for us
and I really have to thank Can-Am for giving
us the opportunity to race the Commander,”
said Hunter Miller.
Even though the Side-by-Side part of the series
has concluded there are still six rounds left
for the ATV’s. Round number eight of the
2012 TQRA series will head to Shogun MX in Lane,
OK on June 23rd – 24th.
