With no GNCC or ATV motocross action this weekend, Can-Am ATV and Side-by-Side racers turned their attention to mud and desert racing. The team earned class victories and numerous podium finishes in both the inaugural 2013 High Lifter Quadna Mud Nationals and the 2013 PURE desert racing series.
Can-Am mud racers won four classes and garnered 13 total podium spots in the EPI Mud Bog at Quadna Mountain Park in Hill City, Minn. Can-Am Commander 1000 X racer Aaron Juarez won the Pro Production 1000 class at round two of the new DWT PURE Side-By-Side Off-Road Championship series in California City, Calif.
“It was fantastic that Can-Am mud racers dominated the first-ever High Lifter Mud Nationals North at Quadna Mountain Park in Minnesota. The Team Gorilla Powered by Can-Am race team was the top performing team of the weekend, earning the most podium finishes,” says Jimmie O’Dell, race manager, Can-Am. “Rookie driver Aaron Juarez and co-pilot Derek Murray had a great weekend at the PURE 300 desert event in California, winning the Pro Production 1000 class with the Murray Racing / Can-Am Commander 1000.”
