Can-Am starts the summer season off right with a big win and podium results in Grand National Cross Country competition. Here’s the official word from Can-Am:

Can-Am Renegade X cross-country ATV racer Kevin Cunningham, the defending 4×4 Pro class champion, won the 4×4 Pro class and 10 a.m. session overall this past weekend at a mud-soaked X Factor Grand National Cross Country event held in Peru, Ind. Cunningham used the horsepower and 4×4 capabilities of his Can-Am Renegade ATV to his advantage in the mud, winning by more than a minute. With his five wins and six podium finishes in six GNCC rounds this year, Cunningham owns a sizable 38-point lead heading into round seven of the GNCC ATV series.

Bryan Buckhannon finished second on his Can-Am Outlander 4×4 behind Cunningham,  giving Can-Am a 1-2 finish at the X Factor race. In fact, it’s the fourth time this year that Can-Am 4×4 racers have garnered the top two finishing spots in the 4×4 Pro class this season. Buckhannon’s five podiums in five rounds (he missed round four due to a race in Europe) have him sitting in third place, only one point behind second place.

Can-Am 4×4 racers also swept the both the 4×4 A and 4×4 Senior (40+) classes, and scored 1-2 finishes in the 4×4 B and 4×4 C ranks. Can-Am racers currently own the points lead in three of these classes.

The Can-Am ATV and side-by-side racing team travels May 27-28, to The John Penton GNCC in Millfield, Ohio, which is round seven for the ATV series and round three for the UTV series.

Getting out front and staying there was key with muddy conditions prevalent.
