UNION, S.C. – The Coastal Racing ATV and Side-by-Side team had a successful day of racing on Saturday at Round 4 of the 2016 Grand National Cross Country (GNCC) Series in Union, South Carolina. The ATV efforts were led by Brycen Neal, who scored 2nd overall en route to his 4th consecutive podium appearance this season. In Side-by-Side action, Coastal Racing Team Drivers Bill Patterson, Sean Bogdan and John Henry each captured a top-ten overall in the highly competitive SXS category, with Henry earning the XC2 Pro Sport victory.

ATV Race
The XC1 Pro ATV holeshot was a chaotic one as two of the top riders collided off the start, causing a pileup around the first corner. Neal was able to stay clear of the carnage and put his Coastal Racing/MSR/Maxxis/Waynesburg Yamaha into a favorable second-place position on the opening lap. Neal soon made the pass on Chris Borich to overtake the lead on lap two and the Ohio native pushed hard to create a 30-second gap over the battle for 2nd place.

After the recent XP1K3, off-road racer RJ Anderson is now three videos deep in the XP1K series produced by Mad Media. In each video he pilots a heavily-modified Polaris RZR XP 1000 through a different off-road playground of jumps, obstacles and custom-built ramps. But regardless of how cool the final version of the video looks, make no mistake that Anderson and the filming crew have their share of bloopers and funny outtakes – not every stunt goes according to plan.
