TORC Pro Modified UTV Report • ERX Motor Park

Pataskala, OH (9/27/2017) - Can-Am/XPS Lubricants/CT Raceworx driver Kyle Chaney put an exclamation point on his TORC Series championship by winning the final round of the series at ERX Motor Park in Elk River, MN. Chaney, driving the venerable Can-Am X3, added a third victory for the season in dominant fashion and clinched the title.

The events were part of a tripleheader weekend held on ERX’s short course. The unique track included one of the series most grueling layouts with a mixture of sand, dirt and clay on the racing surfaces.

Chaney took the lead from fellow Can-Am driver Tim Farr on the second lap and then drove to a dominant win. He relied on the X3’s superior handling and power to score the runaway victory.

“I got out in front of Tim and ran my own race,” said Chaney. “I was able to stay smooth and calm. He took a bad line off to the right and I was able to get by him. My Can-Am worked great.”

Chaney ran the most consistent race of all TORC competitors this season. He scored six consecutive second-place finishes to start the year before earning his first victory at Bark River. He won two more races, and scored three additional podiums, but his fifth-place effort after cutting down two tires at the last race in Crandon stood out for him.

“This came down the wire,” said Chaney. “We’ve been on the podium all year except one race. That one race really won this championship. I had two flat tires and still managed a good finishing position and some good points. That race saved our season. This didn’t come easy. It took the whole team.”

Can-Am Racing Project Leader Jeff Leclerc praised Chaney’s efforts this season. In the end, Can-Am’s finished first and third in TORC points.

“Kyle is a great driver with a great machine,” said Leclerc. “It shows that when you combine a great driver with a great machine, the results are there. The X3 is a great platform here, in the desert, and also in the woods. We’re having success everywhere in North America. We’re proud of that platform and our market share is growing after every race.”
