CJ and Johnny Greaves go 1,2 in Photo Finish Amsoil Cup

CJ Greaves wins the fourth annual Amsoil Cup race at Crandon International Off-Road Raceway, edging out his father, Johnny Greaves, to a photo finish.  Knowing the two had built a sizable lead over third place finisher Chad Hord, the Monster Energy father son duo spent the last 4 laps with the track to them selves.

Johnny Greaves was a wild man and came all the way from from the back to pass an entire field of Pro2 vehicles to catch his son;  The cup race grants Pro2 vehicles a mild head start to make up for the better suited Pro4 vehicles.

CJ didn’t get off to the best of starts and Chad Hord took the hole shot coming out of the infamous turn one.  Hord held on to the lead for a few laps before CJ made a pass.  From there, the was pedal down to fight off the Pro2 vehicles behind him.  However, in the second half of the race it was the #22 Monster Energy Pro4 of Johnny Greaves who was pressing on him.  We’d like to think that Johnny could have taken CJ in the remaining laps but it was a 1,2 punch for the Greaves family so it worked out either way.  Heading in to the final turn, the two synchronized and launched the last jump together through the checkered flag.

“They said you guys have a pretty good gap, so we came in over the line side by side.  I don’t know what more I could ask for,” stated the Amsoil Cup champ.
