Chris Borich Takes the Win
Chris Borich at Big Buck
Chino, Calif. – April 6, 2009 – It started in
Union South Carolina at the grueling Big Buck
GNCC event. Rockstar/Makita/Suzuki/Yoshimura
racer Chris Borich became the first double
winner as he made a last lap pass for the win.
Round Three of the GNCC Grand National Cross
Country series saw a tight and technical track
where one mistake on the red clay could put you
into the trees.
"The woods were really tight and it was easy
to make a mistake." Borich said from atop the
victory podium after the event. "My Suzuki
QuadRacer R450 was flawless, we were in a train
there for a while, it was a good time, pretty
much like trail riding. I got a good start and
didn't make any mistakes. McGill clipped a tree
on the last lap, I got right on him and then
passed him about a hundred yards from the
checkered flag and that was it."
Borich's win puts him at the top of the
points standings after three rounds in the

AMA PRO ATV Motocross
Meanwhile over in the AMA Pro ATV Motocross
world, Rockstar/Makita /Suzuki/Yoshimura
phenomenon Dustin Wimmer showed up at Ballance
Motocross in Bowling Green Kentucky with three
straight moto wins under his belt.
Dustin "Mr. Smooth" Wimmer was all of that in
pre-race qualifying and practice sessions
setting fast times in every session. Wimmer was
almost a full second faster then any of the
other competitors in race day warm-ups. Many
trackside pundits were wondering if anyone could
catch "Mr. Smooth".
At the drop of the gate Wimmer started out in
3rd and the moto more or less settled in with
little passing going on up front. The last few
laps saw some closing up but at the checkers the
finishing order remained the same as it was at
the start. Wimmer crossed the line in 3rd place,
his work cut out for him in moto two.
Moto two saw Wimmer once again cross the line
in 3rd, yielding 3rd place overall; and Wimmers
third straight podium finish of the year. With
his placing, Wimmer retains his points lead and
remains the man to beat for the title in 2009.
"My Rockstar / Makita / Suzuki / Yoshimura
QuadRacer R450 ran great today." Dustin Wimmer
said after the event, "I got two top three
starts and rode good all day; but could never
get in the groove. I'm going to go home and do
some hard work and come back strong at
