“Our racers have definitely found their groove, having won the last six 4×4 Pro-class races,” said Can-Am racing project leader Jeff Leclerc. “Kevin Cunningham continues to impress us with both his attitude and race-day approach. He has his Can-Am Renegade X xc 1000R ATV dialed in at every round, and his current class points lead is indicative of that fact.”
