Aurora, Minn. (June 19, 2018) – Elliott Burns won the Midwest Short League (formerly TORC) season opener in his Evolution Powersports Tuned Can-Am
Maverick X3 at the famous Crandon International Raceway in Crandon, WI. After several fourth place finishes in his rookie season, the win marked Burns
first career podium and first Pro Mod UTV win for the team. With no qualifying because of rain the race became the first time on the track for all 26 drivers.
After a random draw, Elliott started in the number ten spot. By midway he had worked his way into the top three. Elliott continued to run a mistake free
race and when the checkered flag dropped the race belonged to Elliott. “I cant thank my team and sponsors enough” said Burns. We spent most of the
spring building our Can-Am X3 and it is a hot rod !”
Sunday looked to be a repeat as Elliott grabbed the Holeshot and took the lead and distanced himself from the field. The EVO-tuned Can-Am pulled
away on every restart and the FOX shox did their job on the track. Coming over a flyaway on lap seven Elliott caught a huge hole that had developed
during the race and caused front-end damage and a flat tire. He still managed to bring the car across to a seventh place finish
“Evolution Powersports is an integral part of our race program and ensures our Can-Am-X3 performs at its peak potential. Lots of time picking through
data to make sure we have the engine operating at the highest level. We are very excited for the next round at ERX Motor Park in Elk River, Minnesota
and look to be back on the podium,” said team owner (and spotter) Steve Scheuring.
