Borich Pulls off Second GNCC Win at Steele Creek
Chris Borich celebrates his victory at
the Steele Creek GNCC, which is his
second win of the 2010 season.
Borich and his Yoshimura-powered Suzuki
QuadRacer R450 took the lead on the last
lap of the race and won.
Morganton, NC – March 23, 2010 – Yoshimura
Suzuki rider Chris Borich brought home his
second win of the 2010 Grand National Cross
Country season. The Steele Creek track is an
11.2-mile circuit that is rugged and narrow,
with creek crossings, rocks and hills, making
passing a grueling task.
Borich found himself trailing other racers for
most of the race, patiently awaiting his chance
to make a pass. With a lap and a half to go,
Borich took advantage of a mistake by one of the
leading racers to make his move. His
Yoshimura-powered Suzuki QuadRacer R450 and
smart racing proved to be his most valuable
tools in winning this race.
“I got a good start; Yoshimura gave me a good
motor that pulls,” Borich said. “I just sat back
and waited for people to make mistakes, because
it really was a one-line track. I was able to
capitalize on some mistakes by other racers and
come home with a victory. We’re going to keep
getting that Yoshimura Suzuki back on the podium
Borich holds a five-point lead in the series
with ten rounds remaining. Chris dominated the
2009 GNCC series, winning nine races and
finishing the season with a 97-point lead over
second place, and he’s continuing that success
into the 2010 season. The forecast of Chris
conquering yet another GNCC title on his
Yoshimura-powered Suzuki is looking very good.
Next up is Big Buck Farm in Union, South
Carolina, on April 11.
