Valcourt, Québec, March 23, 2012 – With two rounds of ATV racing and one round of side-by-side racing completed, several Can-am® ATV and side-by-side racers lead their class in points or are in the top three with 11 ATV rounds remaining and 5 side-by-side rounds remaining in the 2012 Can-Am / GNCC series. Team Motoworks / Can-Am DS 450™ EFI racer Chris Bithell is third in the XC1 Pro class points after two rounds. Can-Am X-Team racer Bryan Buckhannon dominated both 4×4 Open class races aboard his Outlander™ 800R. Cliff Beasley also posted two consecutive class wins on the Renegade® 800R 4×4.
“Cliff and Bryan are as fast as ever and are already in the driver’s seat in their respective 4×4 classes,” said Jimmie O’Dell, Race Manager, Can-Am. “Even though there is plenty more racing left in the season, we’re content to have our riders positioned where they are after two rounds of Can-Am / GNCC racing. Bithell currently sits third in the XC1 class standings and I predict he’s about ready to show us what he’s made of as the series heads to some of his favorite tracks. I’m proud to see Kyle Chaney put the Commander side-by-side on the XC1 UTV Modified podium in Georgia in his first race with the Motoworks / Can-Am team.”
