Steele Creek GNCC Race Report
North Carolina, March 20, 2010
National Guard Polaris Yokley Racing ATV Team
Rider Jarrod McClure finished 12th Overall and
9th in the XC1 Pro ATV Class today in Round 3 of
the 2010 GNCC Series. There were 219 total
entries with 15 XC1 Pro Riders.
Sunny and warm conditions greeted the racers
as the series moved to the picturesque Steel
Creek area in North Carolina. This race is
usually run in wet conditions, but this year it
was very dry, hot and dusty. Jarrod got a
decent start and got into the woods in 8th
place. After a few turns in the woods,
there was a bottleneck caused by some ATV’s
getting tangled up. After this was sorted
out, Jarrod was back toward the rear of the Pro
class at the end of the first lap.
Jarrod finished lap one in 12th place, and
worked his way up to 9th place in the XC1 Pro
class by the 5th lap. He finished up about
one second out of 6th place, so it was a very
competitive race. The track deteriorated
very much throughout the race, which made the
conditions pretty brutal. The Polaris 450
Outlaw ran flawlessly throughout the day.
The team has some testing planned for next
week and will work on fine tuning everything.
We look forward to the next race in Union, SC in
two weeks. Jarrod will be on the ATV, and
William Yokley will be racing the National Guard
Polaris Dragonfire Yokley Racing UTV there as
well. See you there!
