Hunter Miller Makes TORC Pro
UTV Racing Debut
Pro Modified UTV • Rounds 1-2
Greenville, TX (5/17/2017) –
Can-Am racer Hunter Miller brought out a brand-new
Can-Am X3 and overcame overheating issues to score
a top-10 finish during the TORC Off Road Championship
doubleheader season opener. The event was held
at the Route 66 Raceway in Joliet, IL.
After a last-minute decision to compete in the
Pro Modified class at the event, Miller experienced
cooling problems in the first race on Saturday.
After making several changes, he ran as high as
third before running into issues on Sunday, which
dropped him back to ninth.
Hunter Miller made the last minute decision
to take the long drive north from Texas
to race the Can-Am Maverick X3 at the Chicagoland
Slam TORC Off-Road Championship
“This a complete learning curve for me,” said
Miller. “We made band aid changes on the second
day and we didn’t have any overheating issues.
Obviously the X3 is good and we’re at a good starting
Miller brought his long list of race winning
sponsors from his GNCC program. Double E and Elka
had his suspension dialed in and he ran Maxxis
Ceros tires during the weekend. In addition, JB
Racing helped him get the car ready.
“I have to give a big shout out to JB Racing,”
said Miller. “They helped me get my rollcage together
because this was really a last-minute call to
come here. Can-Am has always been with us and
the X3 is a great machine. We typically run the
Maxxis Bighorn 2.0 in GNCC, but over here we ran
the Ceros, which is more suited to hard pack and
short-course racing. We’ve been doing a lot of
testing with Double E and Elka on the suspension
and it was perfect this weekend.”
Hunter Miller got to watch his brother Cody run
the Pro Stock race. In addition, his mother, Barbara,
got to celebrate Mother’s Day on Sunday with her
two sons. “It was a last-minute decision for her
to come up here from Texas,” said Hunter Miller.
“Happy Mother’s Day mom.”
Miller had fun in his first TORC weekend. Now
he’s getting ready to return to GNCC in his trusty
Can-Am Maverick. “The series is awesome,” said
Miller. “It’s 180 degrees different from GNCC,
and it’s a lot of fun.”
Miller will return to action as GNCC heads to
Sunday Creek Raceway in Millfield, OH for the
John Penton. That race is scheduled for May 27-28.
