After six challenging rounds of action across one of the most diverse calendars in off-road racing, professional off-road racer and Red Bull athlete Mia Chapman is the 2023 Red Bull Scramble Series SXS Pro class champion. With 285 points scored across her five starts, Chapman earned the championship by 10 points.
“I’m so pumped to have taken the Red Bull Scramble Series title for 2023!” said Chapman. “With such a challenging schedule, so many different types of terrain, and so many talented racers out there, being consistent and finishing races was key to getting the most points and staying in the hunt for the championship. Thank you to all of my partners for the support, I can’t wait to see what the 2024 season has in store!”
Debuting in 2021, the Red Bull Scramble Series has taken side-by-side racers of all backgrounds into some of America’s most varied and punishing terrain. Chapman has been a regular in Scramble Series events from the beginning, taking her familiar #37 UTV from muddy, rocky runs through the woods to the varied sands of both the dunes in Glamis and the beaches of Wildwood, New Jersey.
Top off-road racers of all backgrounds took part in Scramble Series events this year, from Dakar Rally standouts and fellow Red Bull athletes Austin Jones, Mitch Guthrie Jr., and Seth Quintero to legendary short course racers like Chapman’s Vision Wheel teammates Johnny and CJ Greaves. But Chapman was rock-solid throughout the campaign, scoring four top-10s in her five starts and finishing higher and higher up the running order as the series continued. In the season-ending Solstice Scramble from Anchorage, Alaska in June, she finished between Quintero and Jones in second place to close out the season on a high note and clinch the title.
Chapman’s first opportunity to defend her title in the 2024 Red Bull Scramble Series will come at Glamis in March with the return of the Sand Scramble. From there, three of this year’s most prominent events—the Ranch Scramble in Decatur, TX, the Beach Scramble in Wildwood, NJ, and and the Solstice Scramble—will return in the spring and summer, before the season wraps up with the inaugural Farm Scramble in October.
