TORC Series

CJ Greaves Wins Fifth Straight at Crandon TORC

In Pro Stock, Greaves was on another level again, taking the holeshot and leading every lap. So dominant was his run that at the mid-race competition caution, he had a five-second lead. On the restart, he again took the lead and checked out from there. Zach Martin was second, ahead of Dillon Pointon.

Jake Lunderby and Hans Ada, in just his second TORC start, completed the top five. All were driving Yamahas.

CJ Greaves TORC Pro UTV Racing

Yamaha's CJ Greaves grabbed the holeshot in the land rush start, but after a red flag, they were restarted in points order with Greaves once again out front.

“This car almost drives itself,” said Greaves. “We work on setup day in and day out and this thing is really showing what it can do. The track was phenomenal. For all the rain we got, a nice groove came in and it was fast. The corners were really tacky and manageable.”

Martin ran side by side with Greaves on the initial land rush start and was right there on the ensuing restarts, the first one on lap one for a crash and after the competition caution. Despite losing radio communication on the first lap, he earned his second consecutive runner-up finish. He sits second in the championship, 23 points behind Greaves.

Zach Martin TORC Pro UTV Racing

Bikeman Performance's Zach Martin held off Dillon Pointon to take the 2nd spot on the podium for the second straight day

“It was one heck of a race,” said Martin. “CJ, Dillon and I had some good battles. At the start, I was side by side with CJ the whole way. We took the smarter option to follow the good line behind him. The car has Bikeman tune and a pipe and it was just ripping today.”

Pointon drove an amazing race, running several different lines throughout the event. At one point, he and Luburgh battled for a lap, swapping the third position before Pointon held onto it.

OnPoint Racing's Dillon Pointon scored his fourth straight podium finish, which has him top three in points

“That was the hardest race of my career so far,” said Pointon. “I really had to fight for that third place. Luburgh was running me hard. He snuck under us, put on a slide job and I got back past in the next few corners. Then Lunderby was running me hard. We’re not driving out of Colorado to lose. We’re giving our full effort here and it’s paying off. The track was really demanding. I had to change my lines up throughout the race. It was a lot of fun, though.”

TORC next heads to Michigan’s Upper Peninsula for the Throwdown in the U.P. at Bark River International Raceway. That race is scheduled for July 15-16.
