GNCC Round #11 Race Report



October 3, 2009 Power Line Park St. Clairsville, OH - I was looking forward round twelve in hopes of putting in a great race; although the weather was expected to make for a muddy track it turned out nice on Saturday! Although a lot of the mud had been cleared out by the morning race in my mind I knew this course would be very slick and I made it a point to focus on getting a good start and keeping momentum. I had a decent jump off the line and was able to head into the woods in the fourth place position.

The track was slick in some places and dusty and muddy in others which made for interesting racing between the front runners as we all tried to gain time on one another. At the close lap number one the lead pack were all within seconds of one another. There were not a ton of places to make passes but where new lines could form they did as the race pushed on. I felt good as the race continued and my machine worked great. Unfortunately I would again unexpected traction and would collide with a tree in one of the tighter sections of the course. I fell way back in the pack which I knew would make for a long day.

At the close of lap two I had gotten back to the eighth place position and I decided to pit for new goggles and fuel. I gained more time in lap three and on the white flag I pushed extremely hard in hopes of making up ground on the leaders. I was successful in making up some of the needed time but not all of it. In the end I would take the checkered flag and earn sixth place.

After this round of racing I remain in second place in the XC1 Pro points standings;  I have a lot of great sponsors and supporters that have a hand in this race and I cannot thank them enough; Yamaha, Houser, Ohlins, HMF, Maxxis, Mike Kiser Welding, Raber Industries, T&K Cycles, HiPer, Moto X Nutrition, Fly, Powermadd, Fasst, Ballance Racing, Precision Racing, Rath Racing, GT Thunder, DP Brakes, G4 graphics, Derek Tremain- ARS Powersports, Baldwin Motorsports, Big Nutz Racing, Chester Vet Clinic, Jason Lyons Mona Vie, Spectro Oils, Tire Balls, Exposed Clothing, Albright Motorsports, IMS and Eden Winery.

I am looking forward to the final round of racing in 2009, see you in Crawfordsville!
