CODY MILLER AND CAN-AM TOP PRO TURBOS IN TEXAS OUTLAW UTV SERIES

RONNIE ANDERSON AND POLARIS WIN RD11 & $30000 PRO NA 1000 TITLE IN TEXAS

Texplex Park hosted the last two rounds of the 11-round $200,000 Texas Outlaw UTV Race Series, and there were 167 entries for the serie’s very-first double-header weekend. At the round before the double-header finale, defending Pro Turbo champion Hunter Miller and Pro NA 1000 points leader Ronnie Anderson scored wins. So, heading into the final two rounds, Hunter closed to within 24 points of Pro Turbo leader Cody Miller, and Anderson stretched his Pro NA lead over Kainan Baker to six, 195-189.

Rain soaked the black-clay track prior to race weekend, and defending Pro Turbo champ Hunter and points leader Cody Miller grooved and scuffed only their front Maxxis SC1 tires to get better turning traction.

With 50 total points up for grabs, the Pros would be fighting for $30,000 championships with second getting $10,000 and third getting $7,000. Only two championships were locked up heading into the finale; Luke Safrit (Pol) clinched the NA 1000 Amateur $1,500 championship bonus with four wins and four more podiums, and Code St. Peter (Pol) won the 250 Production title by a whopping 131 points with six wins (Rounds 1-3 & 7-9) and two more podiums.

The Millers fought like Hatfields and McCoys for the Saturday win; here Hunter crosses under Cody, and Cody will cross under him on exit.
Hunter punted Cody into trackside weeds a second later, but Cody would get him back for the win. Mom said, “They’re 35 and 34 years old, and they still haven’t changed.”

While double-headers are the norm in GAS and WORCS racing, Texplex would host the first-ever Outlaw UTV dual-duel, and the intensity level was almost gunfight-level. Cody and Hunter were a lock for a 1-2 in Pro Turbos, But Kory Willis (C-A) had fought to within five points of Kyle Chaney for the $7,000 third-place bonus. In Pro NA 1000s, Anderson and Baker would be battling fellow Polaris athletes Myles Cheek and rookie Pro Chase Carr. Pro Turbos would face off first, then Pro NA 1000s, and Anderson, Baker, Cheek, and defending Pro NA champ Collin Truett would all do double duty.

Cody Miller flew to his sixth win of the series on Saturday to clinch the Pro Turbo $30,000 championship, and brother Hunter clinched second and $10,000 for second-place points.

In the first Pro Turbo heat, Cody Miller led the first wave into the split-berm first turn ahead of Willis, Cody Taylor (C-A) and Anderson, all on the outside. Jordon Berza (Pol) bicycled on the inside line and went over the berm, flipping over and landing on Anderson, who then pulled off with crash damage. Wave two was won by Chaney, while Hunter had to battle teammate Taylor and Corbin Leaverton (Pol) to take second. In the longer second heat, Cody and Hunter swapped paint and the lead several times, but Cody led every lap at the finish line to take the win and the championship.

Kainan Baker held off defending Pro NA 1000 champ Collin Truett in Saturday’s deciding moto for the RD10 win, and he took over the points lead for Sunday’s finale.

In Saturday’s Pro NA 1000s, Baker did what he had to do, leading every lap of both motos. Anderson kept Baker in sight the first race and finished second ahead of Truett. Baker again took the lead in moto two ahead of Robert Stout (Yam) with Ronnie working into third. Anderson overshot a berm and got high-centered, dropping to sixth in the heat and fifth for the day, which gave Baker a five-point lead for Sunday.

Chase Carr won the NA 1000 Expert title on Saturday and turned Pro for Sunday; he pulled the second-moto holeshot ahead of Anderson, who used up his RS1 in the Pro Turbo race and borrowed Myles Cheek’s RS1 to win the championship.

Anderson worked the first-heat pack quickly on Sunday and took the lead from Baker with Stout third. In the longer second race, Stout took control and led every lap, and Anderson again got past Baker, who was being dogged by Carr. Kainan bent a radius rod and dropped back in the pack, while Ronnie followed Stout knowing he didn’t need his position to take the overall and the championship.

With the Millers using up their Can-Ams on Saturday, Texplex Can-Am team-mates Kyle Chaney and Cody Taylor went 1-2 Sunday, with Chaney edging out Kory Willis in points.

Sunday’s Pro Turbos saw the intensity of Saturday take its toll on the Millers and Anderson. Cody blew his front diff early in the first heat, but he still managed to take the win while Hunter struggled to fourth. Their team-mates Chaney and Taylor took first and second both races, while Cody collided with Taylor on the mid-race restart in the second moto and broke a spindle. Chaney’s lone 2021 win was good for the $7,000 bonus for third-place points.

Having won Oklahoma’s MidAmerica Outdoors 250 Mod title, Brooklyn Singleton came to Texas and won both Production 250 rounds over champion Code St.Peters.
Jordon Berza takes a wild ride over the berm and Ronnie Anderson’s hybrid Turbo S/Pro XP.

Anderson would park that and race his RS1 in the last Pro Turbo round.

 

Ronnie raced Myles Cheek’s RS1 to the Pro NA championship, so spare UTVs will be in order for 2022 double-headers.
