“Our Can-Am mud racers did outstanding at the Championship Mud Racing finals and ended up with four season championships,” said Jeff Leclerc, Racing Project Leader, Can-Am. “Can-Am, a pioneer in the mud racing segment, continues to innovate and expand its already industry-leading lineup of factory-built mud vehicles. These competitive results not only reinforce that message, but also serve as a reminder that dedicated mud enthusiasts choose, and win on, Can-Am.”
