Yokley’s teammate, Scott Kiger, steered his RZR XP 900 to a third place finish. RZRs finished in the top three spots in the XC1 Modified class.

Yokley and Kiger both started well and tackled the rocky terrain by choosing good lines. Their fast, consistent laps gave them both podium finishes and put Yokley back on top in class points going into the summer break, with Kiger sitting in striking distance in third.

The next GNCC UTV Race is Powerline Park, in St. Clairsville, Ohio, on October 20.

kiger-big-buck-polaris-4-23-13Minneapolis, April 23, 2013-RZRs filled the podium this past weekend at WORCS Round Four, at Sand Hollow OHV Park, in Hurricane, Utah, and at the GNCC Big Buck, in Union, SC.

WORCS Round Four, a bit different than most WORCS races, would consist of two laps of winding, sandy trails, rock climbs, and dune areas without the typical motocross section found at WORCS races. The course would challenge the almost 70 side-by-sides lining up for the race with many cars having their race end early.

Minneapolis, Minn., Oct. 23, 2012 – William Yokley and his National Guard / Polaris / Coastal / Yoshimura / DragonFire /Yokley Racing RZR XP 900 took the GNCC “Open Modified” UTV Championship for fourth consecutive year with Yokley’s teammate, Scott Kiger in his National Guard / Polaris / Coastal / Yoshimura / Yokley Racing RZR XP 900 taking second. RZRs proved to be a dominant force in the class taking the top five spots for the season.

The last UTV race of the season, The Amsoil Ironman, saw three RZRs on the podium for the “Open Modified” class with Yokley taking top honors. Teammate, Kiger, had an unfortunate incident where a tree became lodged between his wheel and frame leaving him in last after the first lap. Kiger was able to pick cars off one-by-one for the remainder of the race to finish fourth and seal second place for the year.

“We would like to congratulate William and Scott on another awesome GNCC side-by-side racing season,” said Donna Beadle, race team manager for Polaris Racing. “They made it an exciting season and once again, brought home the championship.”

Minneapolis– Best in the Desert’s Vegas to Reno race is the longest and toughest, off-road desert race in the U.S., and Polaris RZRs continued to have success despite the many challenges the course threw at them.

Summary – Side by Sides

Powerline Park is always a popular venue with both riders and spectators. The course offers fast open field sections, tight, technical trails with lots of natural elevation changes. Rain during the week made the course a little slick, but the competitors agreed that it was a blast to race on.

The National Guard Polaris Team started on the first row, and as they headed into the woods, Yokley was in 3rd and Kiger a few positions further back. There was a brief bottleneck when one racer got crossed up in a tight section allowing all the others to close in bumper to bumper. Yokley finished lap 1 in 3rd and Kiger was 7th. By lap 3, William was in the lead with Scott in 3rd, and the team was looking good for podium finishes.

On lap 4, Scott Kiger clipped a tree in a high speed, narrow part of the course. The impact directed him straight into another tree, resulting in a huge hit, and instant stop. The front wheel and A-arm received the brunt of the force, and were strung out along the trail. It was a tough way to end the day, but fortunately no one was hurt. Meanwhile, Yokley was cruising along in the lead, and other than getting caught up behind lappers in tight sections, he had a trouble free race. The win put William back in the hunt for the GNCC season championship and Scott a close 3rd with just one race remaining.

The team will now prepare for the last GNCC race at the Crawfordsville Indiana Ironman in 2 weeks. They hope to finish the season on a positive note!

Summary – XC1 Pro ATV
National Guard Coastal Yokley Racing Team rider Jarrod McClure was happy to

be racing in another GNCC for the second time in 2 weeks, and not traveling back and forth across the US as he has been this year racing in 2 national series. He was looking for a good finish and was ready to go. The ATV course included a brutal mudhole section which made for quite a challenge.

Jarrod got a good start and was running in 2nd for most of lap 1. He got stuck in the previously mentioned mudhole on lap 2, and several riders got by him as he tried to get out. Some ambitious fans tossed him a rope, and proceeded to help pull him out. He may still have been there if not for the help! Once out, he still had some problems from being partially submerged and covered in mud. His muddy goggles, gloves, pants and boots were making it difficult to hang on and get back up to racing speed.

Fortunately, Jarrod was able to hang on for 5th in the XC1 Pro class at the finish. He now is preparing for the Ironman GNCC in Crawfordsville Indiana in 2 weeks. Jarrod is currently in 7th in GNCC season points and will try to move up at the next race. See you there!
