HUNTER MILLER AND CAN-AM TOP TEXPLEX TURBO PROS

KAINAN BAKER AND POLARIS WIN TEXAS PRO NA 1000S

The third round of the Texas UTV Racing Series drew 145 entries to Texplex Park in Midlothian, including 19 Pro Turbos and 11 Pro NA 1000s. The Pro Turbo field was stacked with WORCS regulars Ronnie Anderson, Corbin Leaverton, Cody Bradbury and Dylan Lemburg and short-course LOORRS/GAS/Champ Pros Kyle Chaney, Chance Haugen, Trevor Leighton and Robert VanBeekum taking on home-track brothers Hunter and Cody Miller.

Cody Miller actually tied brother Hunter, 1-3 to Hunter’s 3-1, but there second-moto tiebreaker went to Hunter. Cody leads Pro Turbo points over Hunter by seven. Photos by Harlen Foley and Dirt Nation.

Dustin Jones (C-A) took the early lead in Pro Turbo Heat 1, but Cody Miller put his Can-Am into the lead on the second lap and turned a 02:49.498 as he got the white flag. Miller won, while Cody Martin (C-A) won the second wave. In the eight-lap final, Cody took the lead on the land-rush start ahead of Martin, Hunter Miller, Ronnie Anderson (Pol) and Kyle Chaney (C-A). Hunter was on the gas and turned a 02:42.647 on the second lap as he took over second place, and he took the lead before the midpoint of the main. Anderson followed and slid into second ahead of Cody and Kyle. However, Anderson’s ninth in the heat dropped him to fifth overall, behind Hunter, Cody, Kory Willis (C-A) and Dustin Jones (C-A).

Kainan Baker (21) stopped Ronnie Anderson’s (52) winning streak and moved up in Pro NA 1000 points to fifth.

In Pro NA 1000s, Myles Cheek led the entire first heat in his trick RS1 and turned a 02:47.184 on his way to the win by 19 seconds over defending champ Collin Truett and Anderson. Kainan Baker won the second wave and turned a 02:55.335 in his fast RS1. In the eight-lap main, Cross Kirchmeier took the early lead in his Talon and battled with Cheek, who led the third lap and turned a 02:46.223 but then dropped out of the race. Anderson took the lead at the 3/4 point but Baker led the last two laps to take the win over Anderson and Truett for an all-RS1 podium.
