Chaney Sweeps UTV Classes at 2021 KOH on Roxxzilla
With his clean sweep of both UTV races, Kyle Chaney (Can-Am) is the undisputed monarch at this year’s King of the Hammers. Chaney and Cody Miller (Can-Am) rode their 35” Roxxzillas to first and second place in the Can-Am UTV King of the Hammers, with Chaney finishing in 3:47:54.885.
Designed to handle rocks and rugged conditions, the Roxxzilla was an ideal choice for KOH, delivering the grip, traction, and puncture resistance racers need to top the podium.
Chaney’s victory on Thursday follows his earlier win in the Toyo Desert Challenge B2/B3 Grudge Match at the beginning of KOH, when he rode Maxxis’ RAZR XT to first place in the new tire’s racing debut. And he may have triumphs still to come this week: Chaney, along with Cody Miller and Hunter Miller (Can-Am), qualified in the top 21 for Saturday’s 4400 class race.
Hunter Miller turned in an excellent performance at the main race, holding the lead for much of the event until a mishap took him out of the competition, while Jay Shaw finished fifth in his first-ever KOH. Other Maxxis racers who finished the world’s toughest single-day race: CJ Greaves (Yamaha), 11th; Bailey Cole (Honda), 17th; Jordan Pellegrino (Honda), 29th; Dustin Jones (Can-Am), 36th; Brendon Thompson (Can-Am), 43rd ; and Rodrigo Ampudia (Can-Am), 44th.
