Lazer Star Lights congratulates  our Can-Am racers’ results at The John Penton GNCC round in Ohio.

Last weekend was the most successful weekend of racing ever from the side-by-side racers. Kyle Chaney drove an outstanding race to earn the first GNCC UTV XC1 Modified class overall victory with the Can-Am Maverick 1000R X rs. There were six Can-Am side-by-side vehicles that finish inside the top 10 of the XC1 class and each earned at least one podium in every GNCC SxS class. - See more at:

The Maverick 1000R worked awesome. I knew the speed and ability was there, we just needed some luck and we got it. I know that this will be the first of more wins,” said Chaney.  “My setup is dialed in, so I am not changing anything heading into the Masontown GNCC.”

 Can-Am drivers earned six of the top 10 UTV XC1 Modified class finishes. JB Off-Road’s Tim Farr and co-pilot Julie Farr earned sixth place in Ohio. Team Zakowski Motorsports’ Zac Zakowski edged Louis Powersports / Can-Am X-Team racer Cody Miller for seventh. Larry Hendershot (Team HP/ NC 44) was ninth ahead of Team NC Powersports’ Stuart Weeks.
