CRANDON, Wis. – TORC: The Off-Road Championship presented by AMSOIL capped its season on Saturday at Crandon Int’l Off-Road Raceway as C.J. Greaves took home both the PRO 4WD and PRO 2WD championships.

Kyle Hart finished second in Saturday’s Atturo Tires PRO Light race to lock down his first TORC Series title.

In the PRO 4WD class it was C.J. Greaves who topped the championship standings after 13 rounds of close PRO 4WD competition this season, but his father Johnny Greaves earned the win on Saturday in a nail-biter of a finish. Father and son battled side-by-side to the line, with the elder Greaves taking the win by a scant .088 of a second.

“We came through the pack and made a couple good moves and once I got by my dad, I said: ‘Alright, let’s go,’” C.J. Greaves said.

Johnny Greaves got the holeshot while C.J. Greaves bobbled, and had to make his way through the pack from fifth. He was up to second by the competition yellow and, on the restart, it was Greaves vs. Greaves to the line.

“We can’t ask for a better battle,” said Johnny Greaves after the race. “I know he’s a little bit better than me, but I still know I’m good enough to hold him off, and I just gotta cover the right lines and not make mistakes.”

C.J. Greaves arrived in Crandon with the PRO 2WD title in hand after locking down the championship win last month at The Dirt Track at Charlotte Motor Speedway. Despite that Keegan Kincaid didn’t let down his hometown crowd and earned the final race win of the season. He took the holeshot and led the race to the checkers. Visiting driver Patrick Clark rounded out the podium, finishing in third.

“The sun was getting brutal,” said Kincaid. “We knew we just had to be consistent and I knew we couldn’t make a mistake with C.J. behind me. We just laid down consistent laps.”

Strong work all season meant Kyle Hart had the Atturo Tires PRO Light title as soon as his wheels crossed the start line on Saturday, but that didn’t stop him from being a part of one of the most thrilling finishes in the history of The Big House.

Travis Dinsmore got it by a nose in a three-wide finish with Hart and Kyle Kleiman, who came into the final weekend of the season on a four-race hot streak.

“We had a tight finish there and [Hart] gave me a nasty little punt there after the checker, but here we are in the No. 1 spot and we’re good with that,” said Dinsmore after the race.
