Mountain Ridge GNCC ATV & UTV Race Report
Pennsylvania, May 22, 2010
National Guard Polaris Yokley Racing ATV Team
rider Jarrod McClure finished 132nd overall and
13th in the XC1 Pro ATV class today after
suffering some mechanical issues in Round 7 of
the 2010 GNCC Series. There were 170 total
entries with 15 XC1 Pro Riders. National
Guard Polaris DragonFire Yokley Racing Team
driver William Yokley finished 2nd overall and
2nd in the UTV class. There were 43 total
entries with 15 Open Modified teams.
The Mountain Ridge Trails Resort is a very
popular ATV park with more than 2500 acres of
trails and riding areas. The race course
features lots of rugged, rocky terrain, hill
climbs, mud bogs and fast trails. A heavy,
driving rain set in just as the afternoon race
began. This made the rocks, hills, and mud
holes even more treacherous to negotiate.
Jarrod McClure got a decent start in the ATV Pro
class, but before he finished lap 1, he had an
issue with his air box, which allowed water and
mud in the intake system. His day ended
early after only 2 laps.
In the UTV race, William Yokley was running
in the top 3 after much bumping at the start.
His guest passenger today was John Bowers, who
got his first taste of riding with William.
At about the mid-point of the race, the machine
impacted a big wet rock, and then bounced into a
tree. This bent a front wheel and did some
damage to the brakes and steering system.
William had to slow a bit to make sure he
finished the event. The team finished 2nd
at the end of 7 laps.
Although the ATV race was disappointing, the
UTV race went quite well. William is now
leading the UTV season points. The team’s
next race is in Millfield Ohio in two weeks
where both William and Jarrod will compete.
William will also be making an appearance
showcasing the race machines for the National
Guard at a large ATV & 4-wheel drive jamboree in
Oneida Tennessee on May 29.
