Warnert Racing Dominates 4x4 Classes & Scott
Warnert Racing swept all three 4x4 Class
Championship before heading into the final round
of the GNCC season at the Ironman in
Crawfordsville, Indiana, but it didn’t slow down
the team as Cliffton Beasley (4x4 Lites),
Michael Swift (4x4 Limited), and Scott Kilby
(4x4 Open) pulled a hatrick with three wins for
the Can-Am Warnert Racing Team.
The battle was on once again between teammates
Scott Kilby & Rick Cecco as they battled for the
lead early in the race, but the multi-time
champion, Kilby, was able to out run the 2007
Champion, Cecco, to claim his fifth win of the
season and a top three overall finish, which
gave the Warnert Racing team its tenth win of
the season in the 4x4 Open Class. For
Kilby, the win also secured his third place
finish in points.
Once again, the competition was no match for
Michael Swift as he ran away from the field to
claim his 11th Win of the season with nearly
eight minutes to spare at the checkered flag,
and for his incredible accomplishments including
two podium finishes, Swift was nominated for
Amateur ATV rider of the year, which is a first
for any 4x4 rider.
Cliffton Beasley claimed his 10th win of the
season after an intense battle with Outlander
racer, Jerime Dudding. The pair have
battled back and forth multiple times this
season, but in the end, Beasley has found a way
to maintain the lead when it counted the most at
the checkered flag. In the final lap of
the race, Beasley took over the lead with
Dudding finishing just 2 seconds behind Beasley.
For Beasley, it was a hard fault win and well
deserved on an extremely challenging track.
The Ironman GNCC concluded an incredible season
of racing for the Warnert Racing CanAm team,
which collected an astonishing 31 wins this
season as they dominated the GNCC Series.
In 2008, the team will be back as strong as ever
with two new additions to the line-up on Sport
ATVs with Chris Bithell & Chris Jenks joining
the team to compete on the all new CanAm DS450,
which should prove to be a top contender like
its cousin the 4x4 Outlander.
