Kyle Chaney Takes TORC Pro Mod Points Lead at ERX
TORC Pro Modified UTV Report • Round 3 Twin Cities Take Down

Pataskala, OH (6/13/2017) - Can-Am/XPS Lubricants/CT Race Worx driver Kyle Chaney scored his third consecutive runner-up finish during the TORC Off Road Series Pro Modified UTV race at ERX Motor Park. Chaney’s consistency handed him the points lead in the class.

The event was held at the purpose-built track just west of Minneapolis. Consisting of sand, dirt and loamy soil, the circuit featured several jumps, tight turns, a technical rhythm area and a split lane section. The race was originally part of a doubleheader weekend, but due to damaging thunderstorms on day two, that race has been postponed to the season finale in September.

Chaney did everything he could to pass eventual winner Rodney VanEperen during the race. Utilizing several different lines, Chaney pulled even with VanEperen’s rear bumper several times, but settled for the close second.

“In the first corner of the race, my radiator got packed full of sand and I started overheating,” explained Chaney. “I tried to stay out of his roost in the first part of the race to keep the front of my car clean so I could put together a late-race charge. I got right up to him, but he was just driving too well and was protecting that inside line.”

Though he’s still after that first victory of the season, Chaney knows that consistency wins championships. Of all three points leaders this season, Chaney has shown the most consistency, not only finishing every race, but finishing second in all three.

“We’ll get that win eventually and we’re not worried,” said Chaney. “We’ve been consistent and we’re after a championship.”

Chaney again relied on Maxxis Ceros tires during the race. With hot and breezy conditions at the venue, the track quickly dried out and changed throughout the 14-lap event. Despite that, the tires were perfect from start to finish.

“The Maxxis Ceros was the perfect choice this weekend,” said Chaney. “Maxxis offers so many different choices, which makes it much easier to find the perfect tire for all race conditions. Maxxis makes the best tires out there.”

Chaney will next compete in the TORC Series June 24-25 during the Big House Brawl at Crandon International Off-Road Raceway in Crandon, WI. He will then head to the weather-postponed John Penton GNCC race in Ohio July 8-9.
