CJ GREAVES SWEEPS ANTIGO PRO STOCK SXSs

ANDREW CARLSON SWEEPS ANTIGO PRO SXSs

CJ Greaves built three new race vehicles for the 2024 season, including a new Pro Stock Polaris RZR and the Monster Energy Pro4. New builds invariably have teething problems, and the opening Champ Off-Road rounds at Dirt City Motorsports Park saw the defending Pro Stock SxS champ chasing gremlins in both Pro Stock and Pro4. Greaves came to Antigo, Wisconsin, with the bugs worked out, but heavy rain on Friday night soaked the course. Here’s the recap from Championship Off-Road at Antigo Lions’ Roaring Raceway.

Pro Stocks were up first, and Greaves jumped out front and never looked back, leading from the green flag, restart green flag, and on to the checkers. Round two winner Jeb Bootle made his way into second with two laps to go, and Round one winner Owen VanEpren rounded out the podium in his Yamaha. The skies opened up again before the Pro (Turbo) SxS race, turning a tacky track into a quagmire. Kainan Baker slid from sixth off of the start up to the lead and held on for most of the race, but opening-round winner Andrew Carlson was on a mission. Carlson put on a charge from ninth place and raced to the front after the restart. He hunted down and passed Baker for the lead on Lap 10 and held on for his second win of the season. Baker took second, while Rodney VanEpren held off his son Owen for third.

Pro4 was up last on Saturday, and Jimmy Henderson nailed the start in his new Pro4 and led a few laps before having to pit to change out a flat tire. That put Adrian Cenni in the lead, but CJ Greaves found an opening and took point. Johnny Greaves and Kyle Chaney battled over second until Chaney dropped back with a stall. Kainan Baker capitalized on Chaney’s mishap and rounded out the Pro4 Saturday podium.

 

CHAMP ROUND FOUR ON SUNDAY

Pro Stocks were again up first, and Owen VanEpren and CJ Greaves were the early pace setters, until Greaves found his groove and started to inch away from the field. Owen settled into second for the rest of the race and took his fourth podium of 2024; he heads to Crandon with a 20-point Pro Stock lead. Colin Kernz rounded out Sunday’s podium and was on his third podium of the season. Stoked with the Pro Stock sweep, CJ Greaves battled with Andrew Carlson in Pro SxS after Carlson moved up from third and Greaves moved up from eleventh. Carlson held off Greaves for his third win of 2024 and the Antigo sweep, with Owen VanEpren third. Carlson heads to Crandon with the Pro SxS points lead, and Greaves moves up to second.

Sunday pitted Pro4s against Pro2s in the inaugural Kyle LeDuc Cup, which was an eight-lap race with Pro2s and Pro4s starting together and Pro2s having to take a Joker lap. Kyle Greaves was the top Pro2 qualifier, but CJ Greaves put his Monster Energy Pro4 into the lead on the first lap. Kyle countered by taking the Joker Lane on his first lap, and he catapulted from third to first. Kyle settled in and looked for lines with the most bite, and he pulled away from CJ. Kyle and CJ made it a Monster Energy Greaves 1-2, and Pro2 driver Keegan Kincaid filled out the podium. Being the top Pro4 driver, CJ carded his 100th career Pro Truck win, including Pro2 and Pro Lite, with the Antigo Pro4 and Pro Stock sweeps.
