Shermansdale, PA - The heat and dust at round
six of the 2010 GNCC series caused problems for
many racers, but Cecco Racing’s Rick Cecco
overcame those obstacles to claim a solid second
in the 4x4 Open class.
Cecco got off to a great start, taking an
early lead as racers headed into the woods.
Cecco would pace himself and held his lead for
four miles before dropping back to second. While
in second the heat and the dust started to
become a factor and interfered with proper
breathing and visibility, but Cecco pressed on
and scored his fastest lap time in the third lap
with a time of 28:32.172.
As the race continued, Cecco would catch up
to leader Bryan Buckhannon, but bottlenecks and
lap traffic became an issue in the final lap and
despite a hard charge, Cecco was not able to
close in enough to make a move for the lead.
Cecco would finish his day in a close second
place. “The dust in the fields got pretty bad
and if you were following someone, it actually
made it hard to breathe and I started to get
sick because of that,” stated Cecco, who is
holding down third in the points chase.
Cecco should have an advantage in the next
round as it will be held in his home state of
Pennsylvania. “I need to get some more wins so I
will be training hard. I’m really looking
forward to the next round as it is close to home
for me,” said Cecco.
Round seven of the 2010 GNCC series will be
held on May 22nd in Somerset, PA. This race
marks the mid-way point in the series and Rick
Cecco will be giving it his all as he makes a
charge against the competition for the 4x4 Open
