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.
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.
