It came down to the last race between Yamaha’s Cody Miller
and his brother and Can-Am Maverick pilot Hunter Miller for
the XC1 UTV Pro championship. Cody snuck away with the
holeshot in the YXZ and never looked back. Cody won the
XC1 UTV championship for the second year in a row, while his
brother Hunter settled for second place in points.
(Middle RIght) For most racers, finishing
a GNCC race is a triumph all of its own.
Unfortunately for this racer, his day
was done, but at least his “helmet hair”
was on point! (Bottom Right) Coastal
Racing’s Brycen Neal, shown here laying
the hammer down while the loyal fans
cheer him on and wait for the next rider
to attempt the intense hill-climb.
Putting in a solid push, McGill
ended up passing McClure and
Fowler for the lead on the second
lap for a few miles, but Fowler
didn’t allow it for long. McClure
took the lead after Walker had a
bobble on a creek jump. Fowler
regained composure and passed
Jarrod up Ironman Hill and never
looked back on his way to his 12th
win of the season. McClure ended
up second overall, just one second
behind Fowler, and McGill took the
final spot in third.
The XC2 Pro-Am championship
was also decided with this last
battle. Austin Abney got out to an
early lead and acquired the $100
All Balls Racing Holeshot award.
Hunter Hart put together a solid
run, and the two racers swapped
the lead multiple times throughout
the race. In the end, it was Abney
taking the win, with Hart trailing
in second place. Devon Feehan
took it easy in third place, giving
Feehan the 2017 XC2 championship in his rookie year!
The big talk of the weekend
concerned who was going to
take home the coveted UTV
championship. The points race
was between the 2016 XC1 UTV
champion Cody Miller and his
brother Hunter Miller. There were
only seven points between them
going into this race, and everyone
was excited to see this go down.
Yamaha’s Cody Miller snagged the
holeshot in his YXZ1000R SS, but
he was under fire right away from
When you’re a three-time XC1 Pro
champion like Yamaha’s Walker
Fowler, you have the right to be
this pumped. Here’s Walker at
Ironman taking his 12th win of the
season out of 13 races!
