Valcourt, Québec, September 22, 2011 –Can-Am X-Team pro ATV racer Chase Snapp won both the 2011 Texhoma Quad Racing Association Pro and Pro-Am class championships aboard the Can-Am DS 450 ATV. With two convincing wins at the TQRA finale held at Valley MotorSports in Tuskahoma, Okla., Snapp held off defending TQRA Pro champion and fellow Can-Am X-Team racer Hunter Miller for the Pro and Pro-Am titles.
“Chase has had a great season aboard the Can-Am DS 450, winning two TQRA titles and finishing sixth overall in the AMA ATV MX series,” said Jimmie O’Dell, Race Manager, Can-Am. “In just his first full season as a professional, we’ve witnessed Chase grow into a fast, confident racer who has developed the skills to compete with anyone on the motocross track. I congratulate him and his family for their hard work, dedication and success.”
After starting the TQRA season with a DNF in the Pro class, Snapp went on a tear and won eight out of the next nine rounds and notched seven 1-1 moto sweeps aboard his Can-Am DS 450. His 219 points outpaced Miller’s 192 points in the chase for the Pro class (Open Expert) overall. The same two racers battled it out for the Pro-Am class title as well, with Snapp again taking the championship. Snapp posted five 1-1 moto sweeps and won seven of 10 events to win the Pro-Am class by 16 points.
The TQRA post-season awards banquet is scheduled for October 16, 2011, at GattiTown Fun Center in Warr Acres, Okla.
