Warnert Racing

Warnert Racing’s Michael Swift Podiums at SnowShoe GNCC

The final round of CanAm GNCC Racing before the Summer Break was held at the SnowShoe Ski Resort in West Virginia, and it was a truly unique event with the start of the race held on the paved road leading to the mountain top village. Unlike, typical GNCC events, racers started the race in rows of five with their engines running in a grand prix style start, which was a totally new experience for GNCC ATV racers.

The Utility classes started randomly within the first group of 16 rows, and Warnert Racing’s Rick Cecco captured the prized first row pole starting position, and he took advantage of the opportunity by leading the race overall after the first lap followed by teammate, Scott Kilby, in second overall. Unfortunately, Kilby would experience a fuel issues in the second lap, which ended his race day early. Cecco pushed on in the Overall lead till the final lap of the brutally tough mountain terrain with boulder size rocks and bottomless mud pits when he ran into issues, which dropped him back to a second place with a still impressive fourth overall finish.

In the 4x4 limited, Michael Swift continued his winning ways by charging his way to his seventh win of the year on a nearly stock CanAm Outlander 800, and he also earned the Warnert Racing Team its first top three overall finish with a CanAm ATV Podium sweep. Michael Swift lead the Warnert Racing Team to a third overall finish, and he is only one race away from securing the 2007 4x4 Limited Class Championship.

In the 4x4 Lites, Cliffton Beasley ran strong the entire race in second place as he went on to finish in an impressive 9th overall, and Beasley carries the 4x4 Lites points lead into the Summer Break, and he only needs to win one more race to secure the 4x4 Lites Championship.

The CanAm GNCC Warnert Racing Team has combined for an incredible 19 wins in the first half of the season, and with only 5 rounds of racing remaining, the team is well on its way to sweeping all three Utility 4x4 class championships.

With a two month summer break, CanAm GNCC racing will resume September 1st at the Mountain Ridge GNCC in Somerset, PA.
