Can-Am's Kyle Chaney Takes
Powerline Park Pro Win
Kyle Chaney's Powerline
Park GNCC XC1 UTV Race Report
Pataskala, OH (10/12/2017) -
Can-Am/XPS Lubricants/CT Raceworx driver Kyle
Chaney returned to GNCC competition where he left
off and won the Powerline Park race in St. Clairsville,
OH. Driving a Can-Am Maverick in the XC1 UTV class,
Chaney dominated the event from start to finish.
Chaney returned to GNCC after missing the last
round while he was running the final three TORC
Pro Modified races. After winning the TORC Championship,
Chaney came into the Powerline event with confidence.
He scored the runaway victory by nearly 50 seconds
and celebrated his second win of the season.

Powerline Park GNCC Pro XC1 SXS Win
“It was just nice coming to the race and not
worry about the points,” said Chaney. “I had nothing
to lose. Usually in GNCC I have to try to save
the car and not drive 100%. This race I put the
hammer down to see what I could do.”
And he won in dominant fashion. Driving his trusty
Can-Am Maverick, Chaney took the lead early on
the first lap and ran away from there. Though
the car drives completely differently than his
Can-am Maverick X3 he raced in the TORC Series,
he quickly got up to speed.

“Everything worked really well; my car was on
rails,” said Chaney. “My TORC car is double the
horsepower, so I really had to hold down the throttle
everywhere. It was definitely a different experience,
but everything worked really well. My Maxxis Tires
were hooking up, especially on the long uphill
Though he missed the last round, Chaney is still
in mathematical contention for the championship.
He sits third points, 30 points out of the lead.
Though it’s a long shot to win the title, still
being in contention shows just how well Chaney
has driven this year in GNCC.
“If Cody and Hunter finished out of the top 20
at Ironman and I win, I win the championship,”
said Chaney. “Cody and Hunter are really good
drivers, but anything can happen, though I’m not
going to count on it.”
Race Worx's Kyle Chaney win has moved him
back into the championship points race,
but he will need to win & the top two
racers in points finish outside the top
20 overall at the Ironman GNCC Finale
GNCC officials recently announced that turbocharged
cars are eligible in XC1 next season. This will
allow Chaney to step up and run the race-ready
X3 in which he dominated TORC this season.
“I am so pumped about that,” said Chaney. “The
X3 platform is so much more race-worthy than what
we’re running now. Even though the car is bigger,
the platform is just so much better for racing.”
Chaney will finish out the 2017 GNCC season at
Ironman Raceway in Crawfordsville, IN. That race
is scheduled for October 28-29.
