Team Hendershot Performance/ Can-Am won the double-points final round of the American Woods Racing Championship Series to capture both the UTV Open XC1-class and overall AWRCS UTV championship. The Can-Am Maverick 1000R X rs team, comprised of Larry Hendershot Jr. and Larry Hendershot Sr., also won the 2013 Woods Extreme X-Country Racing Open UTV class.

Larry Hendershot Jr. and Larry Hendershot Sr. teamed up to pilot their Hendershot Performance/ Can-Am Maverick 1000R X rs (44) to both the 2013 AWRCS and WEXCR SxS championships.

“It’s great to have the Hendershot father-and-son team win two different side-by-side woods-racing titles; their success also conveys the appeal of the race-ready Maverick 1000R,” said Can-Am racing project leader Jeff Leclerc. “I speak for everyone at BRP who was involved with the development of the Can-Am Maverick when I say these two dedicated racers deserve a round of applause for their championship efforts.”

The final round of the AWRCS Series, held at Rock Run, Pennsylvania, was a double-points finale, and the Hendershots, having missed round one, needed a victory to contend for the championship. The winners of three of the last four rounds, the Can-Am/ Maxxis/ Fox/ FMF-sponsored Hendershot Performance team wasted no time at the finale, grabbing a top-two spot after lap one. They took the lead on lap two and never let off.

With five of the next six laps under the 10-minute mark, the Hendershots expanded their lead to win both the XC1 class and the SxS overall, beating Team Plavi (on a Commander 1000 X) by almost three minutes.

“The Maverick performed flawlessly in the extremely rocky conditions at Rock Run,” said Larry Jr. “Winning both the WEXCR and AWRCS UTV championship in our first season with the Maverick is awesome! The power, handling and agility of the Maverick are incredible, and we look forward to starting the 2014 season with a dominant race car.”
