CJ GREAVES TRIPLES AT 5TH ANNUAL ERX EVENT

YAMAHA AND POLARIS WIN FIRST CHAMP OFF-ROAD ROUND

The fifth running of the ERX Motorsports Park’s Off-Road Nationals were also the first round of the new Championship Off-Road Tour (CORT) series, and the race drew 92 UTV entries (18 Pro Mod, 25 Pro Stock, 32 Sportsman UTVs & 17 170s) and 26 Trophy Karts. Pro Stock UTV and Trophy Truck legend CJ Greaves cleaned up at the two-day nationals, winning both Pro Mod UTV mains and Friday’s Pro Stock 1000 main then finishing third in Saturday’s Pro Stock main.

Team Speedwerx Arctic Cat fielded five Wildcat XX entries with Jeremy Houle and Jack LeTourneau in the Pro classes and rookie Jake Jorgensen, Mike LeTourneau and Jonny Hentges racing Sportsman. In Friday’s Pro Stock main, Houle and LeTourneau jumped out into a 1-2 Wildcat lead in early laps, but LeTourneau hooked a rut and flipped. Houle held on to cross the finish line ahead of Greaves, but post-race inspection found Houle’s XX to be too wide. He was disqualified and CJ Greaves was awarded the win over Robert Loire (Pol) and Jason Luburgh (Pol).

Jeremy Houle crossed the Pro Stock Friday finish-line first, but his Speedwerx Arctic Cat was a fraction of an inch too wide in post-race inspection.

In Pro Mod (Turbo) UTVs, GJ Greaves dominated the main and averaged 63.682 MPH on his way to a one-second lead at the flag ahead of Can-Am factory pilot Kyle Chaney, who turned the fastest lap of 56.489 seconds late in the race. Rodney VanEperen was third in his Yamaha. The trio would repeat the Pro Mod podium in the exact same order on Saturday.

Kyle Chaney was second to Greaves in both Pro Mod UTV mains, and he sits second in CORT points.

In Saturday Pro Stock action, Robert Loire topped the field in his Polaris with Houle second and CJ Greaves an uncharacteristic third. The next CORT round is July 25-26 at Dirt City Motorplex in Lena, Wisconisin.

Greaves sits second in Pro Stock 1000 points, 5 behind Robert Loire.
