· Can-Am racers sweep the V2R UTV Pro Turbo and UTV Unlimited podiums
· Blurton earns Pro Turbo class three-peat; Expands class points lead
VALCOURT, QUEBEC, CANADA, Monday, August 19, 2019 – Can-Am factory racer and three-time UTV World Champion Phil Blurton won his third consecutive Best In The Desert (BITD) Vegas-To-Reno desert race over the weekend to expand his UTV Pro Turbo class points lead. The defending two-time BITD champion wasn’t alone on the podium as Can-Am Maverick X3 Turbo side-by-side vehicle racers swept class, took the top six finishing spots and also won the UTV Unlimited division. It was one of the most dominating BITD performances ever for the brand.
How’s this for growing up quickly? Casey Currie was racing motorcycles by 5, wheeling race trucks at 16—and successful enough to open the doors of his own team…at 22. From the deserts around Anaheim Hills, California to finishing 4th at the Dakar Rally and being crowned the 2019 Dakar Rookie of the Year, Casey is no stranger to getting the most from his fleet of off-road machines. A star within the Monster Energy Can-Am Racing team and multi-time champion across too many disciplines to list, look for Casey’s Maverick X3 to be right near the front—no matter which continent he’s racing on.
You can’t outrun this kind of experience. Racing in the desert since he was 4 years old, Matt Burroughs has long lived at full throttle. Nicknamed “Monster Matt”, he raced on two wheels before becoming one of the most feared competitors in the side-by-side class for Monster Energy Can-Am Racing. Rarely outside the top 10 and often fighting for podiums and wins wherever he competes, “Monster Matt” has more than 30 years of racing experience and isn’t about to let up any time soon.
Cattle ranching. Art glass-making. And taking home trophies almost every time they suit up. Brothers Hunter Miller and Cody Miller do it all, and then some. From an early age, Hunter and his brother were racing ATVs, then side-by-side machines—now they’re Can-Am factory drivers vying for wins wherever they’re racing.
