– After taking third last round at Loretta Lynn’s, Team UXC Racing’s Michael Swift took his second podium of the year with a second place finish at GNCC’s Mountaineer Run.

Swift had a great start and by the second lap, had the No. 209 Polaris Scrambler XP 850 had moved into second position. He climbed his way into first and led most of the last two laps but a low fuel level made him lose power a few times costing him the lead by six seconds. Swift’s second-place finish also was the fourth fastest overall time for the race.

“I am very pleased with my Polaris Scrambler 850XP and how it handled on the rough track. I feel we are making great progress with the Polaris and are proving that it is a contender for the top spot in the Pro 4×4 class here at GNCC,” said Swift. “My Maxxis tires performed with perfection in the rocks and the Custom Axis shocks were amazing.”

Polaris Factory Racer, Rick Cecco had a great start as well.  Unfortunately, into the first lap, a stick wedged itself under Cecco’s Polaris Scrambler XP 850 and unplugged a spark plug wire resulting in a loss of power. Cecco had to pit and lost time repairing the issue. Once back on the track, Cecco did his best to make up time to salvage as many points as possible and ended the race in fifth.

The next GNCC race is the John Penton, in Millfield, Ohio on June 7.
