GNCC Racing Series

Kyle Chaney Finishes Second at Ironman GNCC
Kyle Chaney's Ironman GNCC XC1 UTV Race Report

Pataskala, OH (10/30/2017) - Can-Am/XPS Lubricants/CT Raceworx driver Kyle Chaney finished out the 2017 GNCC season with a second-place finish at Ironman Raceway in Crawfordsville, OH. The runner-up finish places him third in the XC1 Pro UTV final points, despite missing one round of competition.

Chaney battled with eventual winner Cody Miller nearly the entire race, and led the race at one point. With co-driver Treavis Poynter, Chaney came into the final round with a win at all costs attitude.

“My Can-Am Maverick worked really well today,” said Chaney. “We caught back up to Cody in the woods and we had some really good battles going. Cody and I battled all day, but he got past some lappers and gapped me a little bit. I was hoping to stay on him until the last lap because I had a place to pass him.”

Chaney gave credit to CT Raceworx and Maxxis Tires for their tireless support this season. CT Raceworx built his Can-Am Maverick, while Maxxis gave him the competitive edge on the challenging courses this season.

“All three of the podium finishers were running Maxxis Tires so that says something,” said Chaney. “I can’t say enough good things about Maxxis. My CT Raceworx built Can-Am is a fine car and will make a great ride next year for someone else in GNCC.”

Chaney missed round 12 due to conflict with the TORC Series, where he won the Pro Turbo championship. Despite missing that round, he still finished third in the GNCC title chase on the merit of two victories and two additional podiums. He hopes TORC and GNCC can coordinate their schedules next season to allow him to run for both championships.

“We missed a round for TORC, so I’m definitely happy with third,” said Chaney. “We knew we were just so close in TORC that we had to pick between TORC and GNCC. I already have two GNCC titles, so Can-Am and I decided to forgo the GNCC title to go after TORC. Hopefully, next year they get their schedules put together so we don’t have to miss any rounds.”

Kyle Chaney is looking forward to making the switch to the Can-Am Maverick X3 for the 2018 GNCC Racing season

GNCC rules will allow turbocharged cars to compete in XC1 Pro next season. Chaney will campaign Can-Am’s race-ready X3 in hopes of earning a third GNCC title in 2018.

“This will be the last race on these old Mavericks,” said Chaney. “We’ll be in the X3 next year. The X3 is a race car and will really level the playing field with some of the other manufacturers.”

Chaney will be racing Can-Am X3 Maverick Turbo’s in both the TORC and GNCC Series in 2018.
