Phil Blurton is crowned the 2020 BitD PRO Turbo Champion (No Limit R&D Can-Am) following two impressive podium finishes at the season-ending BitD BlueWater Desert Challenge (Oct 22-25). Without doubt, Blurton’s season at the wheel of his Can-Am Maverick X3 has been one for the record books, finishing every race on the podium and, incredibly, winning his fourth consecutive Vegas-To-Reno event.
“We came into this race with a pretty good points gap, but it was a double points round, which made it more nerve-wracking,” said Blurton. “My plan going in was, ‘We can back it down a bit,’ but after Day 1, 1st to 14th was covered by a 1-minute time spread. Thankfully, our Can-Am Maverick X3 was a rocketship all year long, and it makes things a little easier with such a great platform to race with.”
Michael Isom (Mobbin Racing) is the other recently-crowned Champion for Can-Am Off-Road, winning the BitD UTV Unlimited class after a season of great results in tough race conditions.
“It was not easy,” said Isom in a social media post. “For those of you who know what it takes—so many variables. Huge thanks to our trusted sponsors and talented pit crew.”
Finally, congratulations to up-and-coming racer Austin Weiland for his first major class win in the UTV Pro Turbo class!
