Shermansdale, PA – One of the toughest tracks of the year could not stop Cecco Racing’s Rick Cecco from making his way to the podium at round number seven of the 2010 GNCC series.

The Mountain Ridge course in Somerset, Pa has always had the reputation as a tough track, but this year seemed particularly brutal with big rocks and rough terrain that was nearly impassable in some sections.

Cecco would get off to a good start and was in second as the 4x4 Open class headed into the woods. Cecco would battle back and forth with Brian Buckhannon and Zack Zakowski for most of the race, swapping positions several times before the last lap when disaster struck. While crossing a stream that Cecco had cleared with ease in prior laps the stream had become deeper and more hazardous with large loose rocks at the bottom. Cecco would get high centered on one of those rocks and would be forced to dismount and get down and dirty in the mud and water after trying several times using the traditional methods of getting unstuck by picking up on the bumper or grab bar. “I was lying on my back in the water, which was about a foot and a half deep, while keeping my head above water I pushed my quad up and out with my legs and finally I got the quad free and kept going” said Cecco.

Cecco’s unfortunate incident would put him back into third place, but his “Can’t stop – won’t stop” attitude was still good enough to give him a solid overall podium in third place at the end of the day.
