Swift-Action-GNCC-Off-Road-6-20-13Team UXC racing added one more race to the history books this past weekend at the Parts Unlimited Mountaineer Run in Masontown West Virginia. The heat and dry conditions made for a very interesting race but for the Shelbyville Tennessee race team victory was in the air! Walking the track on Friday has become a intricate part of the teams routine and mentally noting the rocky sections in particular.

Getting the day started off of the second row Team UXC racings Michael Swift was able to grab the holeshot off the start and led his class into the woods at the Masontown WV event. “We were rolling on the first lap and even caught the open class and were able to get around them before our first pass through the scoring tents.” Swift has found some amazing speed in the last few years and the determination to improve his performance every race has really began to show. Passing the lead back and forth with a fellow racer Swift would find a rock that stopped his Team UXC Can-Am Renegade right in its tracks on the third lap that sent him over the bars.
