One race, one win

Just a week ago, Can-Am nearly broke the internet following the release of the all new, groundbreaking Maverick X3. Apparently one big reveal for the week wasn’t enough as both of Can-Am’s factory desert teams unveiled their own race prepped X3s that would tackle the Vegas to Reno event the following weekend. Here are 10 of our favorite photos and videos from the Maverick X3’s maiden voyage.

Dang that new Maverick X3 sounds good!

Unfortunately poor visibility due to the dust lead to a multi-car pileup that took out the S3 Racing Maverick X3 in the first 18 miles of the race course.

It’s a team effort and the Murray Racing squad was able to pilot the Maverick X3 to a win in its first ever racing debut!
