Can-Am Maverick R’s successful debut in the racing world


Dustin Jones brings home the gold at the Silver State 300

We are proud to announce that Can-Am has won the 2023 Silver State 300 Best In The Desert race, making a successful racing debut for the Can-Am Maverick R platform.

Can-Am Factory Racer, Dustin Jones, made racing history: for the first time ever, a UTV has won a desert racing overall, beating every other vehicle on the course. 

Can-Am racers swept the podium in the UTV overall and the UTV Turbo Pro class, Vito Ranuio clinching second in his Maverick X3, with Phil Blurton in tow in his new Maverick R, who finished third.

“ Our Maverick R handled flawlessly. From start to finish, we put this vehicle to the test and it passed with flying colours.”

The 459 km (285-mile) point-to-point race course saw racers start and finish just outside of Alamo, Nevada, traversing across the desert countryside of Lincoln County.

“ We couldn’t be happier to see the success Dustin and Phil have had here with the all-new Maverick R, as well as the remarkable performances of Vito Ranuio, Mitchell Alsup, and Cody Bradbury with the time tested Maverick X3. We built the Maverick R to be the best, the new performance leader. This weekend’s win proves we hit the mark perfectly. ”
