Valcourt, Quebec, February 7, 2021 — Continuing a recurring theme in off-road races all over the world, Can-Am racer, Kyle Chaney, crossed the finish line first at the 2022 Can-Am UTV King of the Hammers this past weekend. Chaney’s victory was the second in a row for him, and the third in a row for a Can-Am driver at the event, which is considered the toughest single-day race in the world. Following closely behind Chaney were Can-Am drivers Hunter Miller and Paul Wolff, locking in a third podium sweep in a row for Can-Am.
“It’s awesome to be the back-to-back champion at King of the Hammers,” said Can-Am Racer, Kyle Chaney. “That was one of the toughest races I have ever done. We broke a winch and I thought our day was done, but we ended up working out of it and coming through. It was awesome and I feel great!”
HIGHLIGHTS of the 2022 Can-Am UTV King of the Hammers:
- Chaney finished with a time of 4:26:02.193
- H. Miller finished with a time of 4:46:33.753
- Wolff finished with a time of 4:58:05.775
- Only about 30 of the 124 entered UTVs finished the race in the nine-hour time limit

In addition to the outstanding performance from Can-Am drivers in the UTV PRO Modified Class, Can-Am driver, Cody Miller, finished in 8th position in the 4400 Unlimited Class race on Saturday, Feb. 5. Miller took his Can-Am Maverick X3 up against fully modified vehicles that are not limited by tire size, engine or chassis design.
