Maxxis All-Over Pro & Amateur Podiums; Borich Takes GNCC ATV Lead

The summer break is over, and the Killer Bs are ratcheting up the tension again. Chris Borich won the first GNCC ATV event of the fall, nabbing a three-point lead in the race for the title. Bill Ballance took third place at the Geico Mountain Ridge GNCC, held September 1 in Somerset, Pennsylvania.

"What a race,” Borich told “Some people think I haven’t been training over the break, but guess what? I have been. I got the points’ lead now, and I’m just going to come out here and do the best I can and hopefully win the rest of them and grab me a championship. I need one.” Borich finished in 1:56:25 hours, after a bruising contest that was closely fought all the way to the finish line.

Ballance was not discouraged despite his difficulties during the race, which included mechanical problems. “Hey, I got third. I don’t know how, it seems like we were just barely going around the track, but it’s what I needed to hopefully move onto the championship after all this,” he told

Other Maxxis riders also rode their Razrs to the top ten: Matt Smiley took fifth place, and Brandon Sommers took seventh overall, along with his seventh Pro Am victory of the season. Duane Johnson grabbed eighth, Brent Sturdivant was ninth and Taylor Kiser rounded out the top ten. Sommers also won the holeshot award.

In the morning race, it paid to be part of the Maxxis-riding Team Warnert Racing Can-Am:  Michael Swift, Scott Kilby, and Cliff Beasley swept the morning podium and won the Limited 4x4, Open 4x4 and Lites 4x4 classes respectively.

Maxxis congratulates Chris Borich and Michael Swift on their victories and thanks all of these fine riders for their outstanding performances.
