Rick Cecco Claims
Third in Points after GNCC Round Three
Shermansdale, PA – Three rounds into the 2010
GNCC series, Cecco Racing’s, Rick Cecco
holds down third place in the points chase after
a top ten class finish at Steel Creek.
Cecco grabbed the holeshot in the 4x4 Open
class and led briefly before settling in to
second. There was a tough three-way battle with
Bryan Buckhannon, Zac Zakowski and Cecco through
the entire first lap. The battle began to carry
over to the second lap until complications
arose. “I notice the bike starting to pull to
the left. I looked down and noticed my front
tire was going flat. I kept pushing in hopes of
holding my position until I was able to get to
the pits to get it fixed,” stated Cecco.
Unfortunately, for Cecco, he would end up
hitting a stump. The impact was so great that it
jerked the bars out of his hands and bent his
Cecco limped his quad back to the pits and
fixed his flat tire and tie rod, but the pit
stop would send him to last place in his class.
Cecco was determined not to finish last and
pushed hard, working his way up to the number
nine spot before crossing the finish line.
Despite his issues on the track, Cecco remained
optimistic and thankful for those who helped him
out in the pits. “I have to give a special
thanks to the Buchannon race team and Ryan Robey
for all of their help in the pits. I really
appreciate it. I guess I’ll just chalk this race
up as a throw away for the year since we are
allowed five of them,” he stated.
Round four of the 2010 GNCC series will head
to Union, SC on April 10th for the Pirelli Big
Buck, where Rick Cecco will be gunning for the
top spot on the podium.
