Yorkley Racing
The Unadilla GNCC ATV Race Report

New Berlin, New York, September 12, 2009

William Yokley finished 17th Overall and 12th in the XC1 Pro Class today.  There were 220 total entries with 21 XC1 Pro Riders.  Team Rider Mark Notman finished 177th Overall and 24th in the 28 rider XC2 Pro Am Class.

Summary

It’s been a nice summer break and a time to catch up on things, heal up some bumps and bruises, and get ready for the final 4 races.  I made some improvements on the 450 Outlaw Polaris that made it more comfortable to ride and also put the power to the ground better.  We made the 16 hour trip to NY and arrived to find out it was raining for most of Friday.  It cleared up for Saturday’s race and the conditions were almost perfect.

At the start, my bike did not fire up immediately; I must have touched the throttle as it was cranking causing it to take a few seconds to start.  So, I started behind everyone and chased the pack through the first few corners.  I tried to make passes quickly so as to not get further behind the leaders.  In my haste, I overshot a corner into a mud hole, costing me even more time.  I settled down and finished lap 1 in 17th position.  I ran pretty consistent lap times and finished the 5th and final lap in 12th position.

Mark Notman got a good start and put in a strong first lap in 6th position.  On lap 2, he got hung up in a bottleneck but still was running 9th.  On lap 3, he began experiencing some clutch issues eventually ending his day.

We arrived home late Sunday night, and will begin getting ready for the next race in Yadkinville, NC.  We will prepare my Polaris RZR also, and 2 of the next 3 races I will be pulling double duty with the RZR and the Outlaw 450.  Should be fun, see you there!
