GREAVES HAS A RECORD BREAKING PERFORMANCE WITH LM+ AT CRANDON



ABRAMS, WI (JUNE 20, 2011) Anxious to head to more familiar territory and a dryer track, Johnny Greaves motorsports, fueled by VP’s Late Model Plus knocked the mud and frustration off of their respective trucks and stormed into Crandon this past Father's Day weekend.

After rain earlier in the week, the track crews worked hard and had the track in near perfect racing condition for qualifying on Friday. But with gray skies looming, everyone was hoping to get Saturday's race underway, unencumbered by the extra weight of mud. A man building a large wooden boat near the track with animals lined up by it didn't help the feelings of the Crandon faithful.

When the dust settled on Saturday, Johnny had broken the Pro-4 track record and claimed his first victory of the season for the Greaves team in his Toyota. The talented driver also grabbed the Oakley Bomb Award while he was at it. This was Maxxis Tires first Pro-4 win, proving they are a force to contend with in the Pro-4 class. Unfortunately, Sunday's race had to be canceled due to rain.

Johnny lined up 3rd and pored the coals to his Monster Energy Toyota on the land rush start—reaching a speed of nearly 100mph as the field hit the famous Potawatomi turn one. Johnny won the holeshot and pulled away to a 4 - 5 car lead. He bicycled the Tundra in the gravel pit turn but managed to save it, losing only 1 position to Adrian Cenni. Cenni's lead was short lived as Johnny regained the lead in the argon turn section. Greaves powered his red-plated number 22 Toyota to a comfortable lead following the competition caution to cruse to victory lane.

The team will head to the eastern seaboard for the first time in the sports history to Charlotte Motor Speedway for rounds 5 and 6 of the Traxxas TORC Series. The race is slated for July 22-23 in Concord, NC.
