Can-Am had a 1-2 finish at Round 6 of the 2016 GNCC racing series. Can-Am X-Team racer Jordan Phillips won the 10 a.m. overall and the 4x4 Pro class at the Limestone 100 Grand National Cross Country race in Springville, Ind. Fellow Can-Am Renegade 4x4 ATV racer Robert Smith joined Phillips on both the overall and class podiums, giving Can-Am a 1-2 finish on the day.
“The Limestone 100 was one of the most challenging, muddy GNCC races in quite some time. Anytime you can end a muddy two-hour GNCC race with a victory, three in the top five and still maintain the 4x4 Pro class points lead, you have to be pleased,” said Jeff Leclerc, racing project leader, Can-Am. “Jordan Phillips earned another big win this year and continues to make huge strides in his chase for the championship.”
Round six of the GNCC series was a muddy mess and one that challenged both man and machine, as only 51 of 258 total riders in the 10 a.m. session were able to complete all five laps. The filthy conditions were no match for Phillips and his Can-Am Renegade 1000R ATV. The Renegade ATV’s awesome power propelled him to the holeshot, while its dependable performance helped Phillips stay in the top two the entire race in spite of dozens of deep mud holes, numerous lapped riders and fierce competitors.
