Friday the 13th never caught up to Austin Weiland. He piloted his Can-Am Maverick X3 489 miles to a first place UTV Turbo Pro finish at the Best in the Desert 2021 Vegas to Reno race. Weiland managed the feat in what was a record year for Vegas to Reno, with more than 400 entries. Approximately 150 of those were UTV racers.

Weiland was understandably pumped after the race.

“We had no major issues all day, and after nine hours of grueling racing, the car is still flawless. We could turn around and do the course again! This Maverick X3 is perfectly designed for grueling environments like this,” he said. “This was a true team effort and it’s awesome to bring home the win for the longest off-road race in the USA.”

Fellow Can-Am racer Dustin Jones would finish in second place just three seconds behind Weiland. In fact, it was a great day for Can-Am all around. It would take six of the top 10 spots in the UTV Turbo Pro class and first and third in the UTV Unlimited Class.
