With 4 Wins, Maxxis Dominates TORC Season Opener

Maxxis’ sponsored drivers swept through the field and onto multiple podiums at TORC Rounds 1 and 2. The season kick-off was held May 13-14 in Joliet, Illinois.    

Just as they have in previous seasons, Maxxis’ sponsored drivers Johnny and CJ Greaves dominated the Pro 4 field. CJ managed a first place finish in Round 1, while Johnny came in just half a second behind. At Round 2, Johnny had the advantage over CJ and scooped up a first place finish. CJ meanwhile had a slight hiccup, but still made the podium in third place. Both father and son trusted the new RAZR SCR II competition tire to take them first across the finish line. 

New to Maxxis’ roster, Eric Ruppel earned first place in Pro 2 at Round 1. Ruppel drove the new RAZR MT, marking the tire’s racing debut on a track for which it was ideally suited. 

Also new to Maxxis are Kyle and Cody Kleiman. Kyle took the holeshot in Pro Light at Round 2 and never looked back, going on to take the win. “Yesterday we rolled over, and I lost my brakes at the end. So to come out here today and lead the entire race was pretty cool,” he told torcseries.com. Cody took third place at Round 1 after a serious setback late in the race. Maxxis’ sponsored driver Kyle Hart took third place in Pro Light at Round 2. 

Maxxis congratulates CJ and Johnny Greaves, Eric Ruppel and Cody Kleiman on their victories and looks forward to cheering them on to victory at TORC Rounds 3 and 4, scheduled for June 10-11 in Elk River, Minnesota.
