Hendershot Performance Wins Two Championships With Can-Am Maverick 1000r X rs

Father-and-son team wins AWRCS, WEXCR SxS Titles

November 2013 Racing

Valcourt, Québec - Team Hendershot Performance/Can-Am won the finale double-points round of the American Woods Racing Championship Series to capture both the UTV Open XC1 class and overall AWRCS UTV championship. The Can-Am Maverick 1000R X rs team, comprised of Larry Hendershot Jr., and Sr., also won the 2013 Woods Extreme X-Country Racing Open UTV class.

"It's great to have the Hendershot father-and-son team win two different side-by-side woods racing titles," Jeff Leclerc, Racing Project Leader, Can-Am, said. "Their success also conveys the appeal of the race-ready Maverick 1000R. I speak for everyone at BRP who was involved with the development of the Can-Am Maverick when I say these two dedicated racers deserve a round of applause for their championship efforts."

The final round of the AWRCS series at Rock Run, PA, was a double-point finale and the Hendershots, having missed round one, needed a victory to contend for the championship. Winners of three of the last four rounds, Hendershot Performance (Can-Am/MAXXIS/FOX/FMF) wasted no time at the finale, grabbing a top-two spot after lap one. They took the lead on lap two and never let off. With five of the next six laps under the 10-minute mark, the Hendershots expanded their lead to win both the XC1 class and the SxS overall, beating Team Plavi (Commander 1000 X) by almost three minutes.

"The Maverick performed flawlessly in the extremely rocky conditions at Rock Run," said Larry Jr. "Winning both the WEXCR and AWRCS UTV championship in our first season with the Maverick is awesome. The power, handling and agility of the Maverick are incredible and we look forward to starting the 2014 season with a dominant race car."
