Can-Am off-road racers had great success this past weekend on racetracks around the country, notching several victories and numerous podium finishes.

Lucas Oil Regional Off-Road Series
With impressive back-to-back wins in the Production Turbo UTV class at rounds 10 and 11 of the Lucas Oil Regional Off-Road Series, Jason Ellis climbed to third in the class points standings. The Can-Am Maverick X3 side-by-side pilot has been on a roll in the Lucas Oil Regional Series, having scored three straight podium finishes.

At round 10, Ellis completed 12 laps in 12 minutes and 21.253 seconds to earn the win.

Ellis followed up that podium celebration with another one, after posting his second win of the weekend in the Production Turbo UTV class at round 11. This time out, Ellis completed all 12 laps in a time of 12 minutes and 29.494 seconds to prove that his first Lucas Oil Regional victory wasn’t a fluke.

Ultra4 Racing
Can-Am Maverick X3 racer Casey Scherer won the UTV Pro class at the fifth annual Ultra4 Racing MetalCloak Stampede this past weekend at the Prairie City State Vehicle Recreation Area near Sacramento, California.

It’s fitting that Can-Am racer Casey Scherer put his number-79 Maverick X3 vehicle atop the UTV Pro-class podium at the MetalCloak Stampede because Can-Am is the official UTV of ULTRA4 Racing.

Scherer, who was the top qualifier on Friday, was on point in the finals in his No Limit SxS/ TeamAwesome Can-Am. A good start and a second-place running had Scherer in good position for the win. As the final event wore on, Scherer found his way to the front to notch the class win. He completed eight laps in a time of two hours, 12 minutes and 55 seconds.

TORC The Off-Road Championship

Kyle Chaney (891, shown here in the Chicago pits) has three podiums in the TORC Series, which gives him a 15-point advantage over the competition after three rounds of racing.

After qualifying first on Friday at the Twin Cities Takedown in Elk River, Minnesota, Chaney drew a four on the inverted start and was forced to begin the race on row two. By lap three, however, Chaney had piloted his Can-Am Maverick X3 side-by-side back up to the front of the pack.

Despite his best efforts, Chaney had to end up settling for second place, which ultimately was enough to put him in the points lead – by 15 points – and in the driver’s seat in his chase for a TORC championship.

A severe storm with heavy winds and rains canceled round four.
