ANDREW CARLSON AND POLARIS DOMINATE ERX CHAMP PRO MODS

GREAVES AND HEGER TRADE ERX CHAMP PRO STOCK WINS

ERX Motor Park hosted the fifth and sixth rounds of the Champ Off-Road Tour, and there were a total of 116 entries for Friday night’s round in Pro Mod, Pro Stock, Pro-Am, Sportsman, 570 and 170 UTVs. ERX’s short-course provided great racing and viewing with high banks for racers and grassy hills and grandstands for spectators, and the Off-Road Nationals were a family-friendly event with camping, open pits, trail rides, Kids Zone, Expo vendor area, food trucks, music and more.

CJ Greaves (33) and Brock Heger continued their Pro Stock UTV battles at the ERX Off-Road National and traded wins for the third weekend in a row.

Pro Stock UTVs have provided close racing and fierce battles between fan favorites CJ Greaves and Brock Heger, who won the Pro-Lite trucks on Friday. Greaves took the Pro Stock win Friday night with Owen VanEperen on his rear bumper and Washington’s Dallas Nord third. Heger was an uncharacteristic ninth, so Greaves increased his Pro Stock series points lead with his third win in five rounds. Heger bounced back on Saturday and took the Pro Stock win over Greaves, Owen VanEperen, and Nord. So, Greaves and Heger have traded wins in each weekend of Champ racing. All are Yamaha YXZ1000R athletes.

Friday Pro Stock podium with CJ Greaves, Owen VanEperen and Dallas Nord.

In Pro Mods, racing has also been fierce all season across the field with Andrew Carlson (Pol), Kyle Chaney (C-A), Rodney VanEperen (Yam), and Owen VanEperen (Yam) all taking wins at the first four rounds. ERX Park being Andrew Carlson’s home track, he dominated the weekend’s Pro Mod racing, and he also went 3-6 in Pro4. On Friday, Carlson battled Scottie Lawrence (C-A), Rodney VanEperen and Robert Loire (Pol) for the win, with VanEperen and Loire sharing the podium and Lawrence fourth. On Saturday, Carlson scored his third win of the season ahead of Loire and Owen VanEperen, who had won the fourth round at Crandon. Can-Am pilots Chaney and Lawrence had a bad sixth round with Chaney 14th and Lawrence 17th.

Dylan Marquardt leads Pro-Am UTV points with Tyson Marquardt third.

In Pro-Am UTVs, Jake Kosmecki (Yam) took the win on Friday and a fourth on Saturday. Dylan Parsons rebounded from a sixth on Friday to take the win Saturday. Dylan Marquardt (Yam) was most consistent at ERX with a pair of seconds. Jake Jorgenson topped the Sportsman UTVs In his Arctic Cat on Friday and backed that up with a second Saturday, while Colin Kernz (Yam) was second on Friday and won on Saturday.

Chase Braun (Pol) was the top 570 at the ERX Off-Road nationals; he finished second behind Conner LaCasse (Pol) on Friday and won Saturday. Eliah Holter (Pol) went 3-2 in 570s over the weekend. In 170s, Kody Krantz (Pol) won on Friday, while Grant Dresel (Pol) went 3-1 at ERX.

Dirt City in Lena, Wisconsin, will host the seventh and eighth CORT rounds July 31st and August 1st.
