CHARLOTTE
— It was a Greaves family sweep this weekend in TORC: The Off-Road Championship presented by AMSOIL as the series made its annual trip to NASCAR country for Showdown in Charlotte, Rounds 9 and 10 in the national championship series.

Defending PRO 4WD champion Johnny Greaves dominated Saturday’s Round 10, while his son CJ Greaves finished runner-up. The two had also finished one-two a day earlier – but it was CJ Greaves who earned the win on Friday. The parallel results meant no change to the PRO 4WD points spread after the ninth and 10th rounds in the championship. The younger Greaves remains a slim six points ahead of his father.

Appleton, WI
– The Flying Dutchman Off-Road team will be back on the track next weekend at Crandon International Off-Road Raceway. Mike Vanden Heuvel will once again pilot the family’s familiar red Maxxis Tire equipped PRO-2WD as the team marks its thirty-sixth year of racing at the “Big House.”

Before a hometown crowd, Jacob Person put on a display of dirt track dominance that had his orange-shirted cheering section out of their seats and shouting themselves hoarse, as he knocked down back-to-back wins for the SuperLite Championship Round 3 and 4 weekend at Speedworld Off Road Park.

Piloting the Geiser Bros. Design and Development-sponsored SuperLite race truck, Person swept the podium’s top spot in front of a packed stadium. He led a group of three racers who are establishing themselves as the next generation of off-road stars — RJ Anderson, Chad George and CJ Greaves — to take the two wins.

“Two in a row couldn’t get any better. I got the first position right in the first corner, and you know, I couldn’t ask for anything better. Everybody’s helped me get to this point… Mickey Thompson Tires hooked up, gave me the drive right away. I mean nobody else even had anything else for me. SuperLite Series is putting on the best of the best,” said Person.

Person’s wins this weekend were the first of his SuperLite career. His dominance at Speedworld was a remarkable turnaround from his 10th and 12th place finishes in rounds one and two, landing him in the hunt for the overall points championship with 12 races remaining in the season.
