Phil Blurton Wins Fourth UTV World Championship

Phil Blurton Wins Fourth UTV World Championship

Phil Blurton has won his fourth UTV World Championship in the UTV Pro Turbo. The UTV World Championships were held in Lake Havasu over the weekend for the second year in a row.  Blurton won three back to back titles in 2017, 2018 and 2019. Blurton, driving a Can-AM and Piplic in a Polaris RZR, battled with each other during the entire race. Piplic won the UTV World Championship last year.

“We decided this morning that we were going to set a good pace and see where we were at about halfway,” Blurton said on the podium. “There were a couple guys on the first lap who were pushing at a crazy pace, and it sucks to let them leave you, but we knew what the car could take. Coming into the last lap (Ryan and I) were six seconds apart, I made a mistake and had to change a tire, and thought ‘aw, man, second place,’ but then we saw him break down.”

Kaden Wells had a successful battle in the Naturally Aspirated class. Wells turned around and raced in the final event of the day taking second overall despite limited horsepower. Vito Ranuio rounded out the podium in third.
