HLS Riders in Early Season Contention


Millersburg, OH, March 11, 2009 – Riders who chose HLS suspension claimed many top spots in the first two rounds of the 2009 GNCC Racing Series. HLS Suspension is one of the latest suspension technologies currently being offered by GT Thunder; it is known for its unmatched performance at a manageable cost to ATV competitors.

Round #1 was held at The Westgate River Ranch in the sands of Florida. Youth racer Charlie Welch kicked off the opening round with a win in the 70 CVT (6-11) class utilizing HLS suspension. In addition, Women’s A rider Jennifer Albright put her HLS shocks to work and placed second overall “It is important to have good suspension, especially when competing in Florida where the tracks deteriorate so quickly. GT Thunder’s HLS suspension definitely played a big role in my finish here at Round #1”.

Georgia had a mix of mud and fast sections for riders; Zachary Strong took his second win of 2009 while youth competitor Blake Chirdon grabbed his first win of the season. In the afternoon race XC2 Pro Am rider Brian Wolf dominated the class leading the race from the green flag to the checkered earning his first win of the season. All in all over the first two rounds HLS riders earned seven wins along with seven second place finishes with multiple podium appearances in the youth and morning events. “This is a great start to the season for many of these competitors” says Laz Sommers “I look for great things to come for both the riders and HLS suspension”.
