Warnert Racing
Warnert Racing’s Chris Borich Claims Win in QTC Debut Race

Warnert Racing’s Can-Am Team claims yet another WPSA Quadterrian Pro Stock Class Win at Round Three with GNCC Pro Racer, Chris Borich, carrying the team to victory.

For the first time this season, the WPSA & GNCC races didn’t overlap, which opened the door for both GNCC Pro Racers #2 Chris Borich & #6 Chris Bithell to make their Quadterrain Challenge debut at Cooperland with the CanAm Warnert Racing Team, and they quickly made their presence known amongst the other competitors with each claiming a win.

For Borich, his first ever Quadterrain win came in the Main Event where he cleaned house. Borich jumped out front to claim the Rock’N’Roll Award after an intense early battle for the lead with Arctic Cat’s Rory Beckman. The pair would bounce off of each other on several occasions and had the bent up bumpers to prove it, but in the end, Borich was able to use his years of ATV racing experience to outrun Beckman and secure the win and the Biggest Mover Award on top of it.

Chris Borich went home on a high note with an impressive tally of $3,500 in prize money, but weekend didn’t start out as well. Upon arriving to Oklahoma, Borich’s dad, Joe, was sent to the hospital to have his appendix removed after experiencing intense lower abdominal pain. Fortunately, the appendix was removed before it burst, and Joe’s surgery was a success, and he returned to the track on Sunday to watch his son win his first Quadterrain challenge event, which had him smiling ear to ear.

As for Chris Bithell, he came out the gate in his first heat with a third place finish, and he followed up with a win in the second heat. In the main, he was well on his way to another Podium finish when he picked the wrong line through the rocks and found himself stuck, which dropped him back to the rear of the pack. Bithell was able to charge his way back to a 10th place finish, and he is hooked. After testing the rocks, mud, and logs this weekend, he plans on attending all the remaining events with Chris Borich that don’t conflict with the GNCC races.

Scott Kilby held the WPSA QuadTerrain Pro Stock Points lead heading into Round 3, but a series of bad luck this weekend kept him for retaining his position out front, but he plans to be back stronger than ever at the next round of racing.

With heavy rains leading up the Oklahoma race, the double header weekend was postponed to London, Kentucky, so Daniel Boone will host Rounds 4 & 5 of the WPSA Series on June 16-17th.
