The GNCC Series has been on summer break for
almost a month, and National Guard Polaris ATV
Team rider Jarrod McClure decided to venture out
west for some racing action in round #7 of the
WORCS series held in McCleary, WA. The
Straddleline ORV race course has many
similarities to a typical GNCC track and the
team was looking forward to this race, which was
held in a beautiful part of the country just 15
miles west of the state capitol in Olympia, WA.
The beautiful moderate weather was a welcome
relief coming from the heat and humidity back
east, so the team was ready to roll. After
qualifying 5th on Saturday, ATV pilot Jarrod
McClure was getting anxious for the race to
begin. There were some familiar faces from the
GNCC series at this event with GNCC Champ Chris
Borich, Adam McGill, and Johnny Gallagher to
help fill up the gate in the pro class making
for an exciting race.
When the gate dropped McClure went into the
woods running about mid pack. He had an
eventful first lap when he slammed into someone
causing him to hit a tree that put him further
toward the back of the pack. Overcoming
the first lap incident, Jarrod was making a
charge through the field until about the middle
of the race and a call was made in the pits by
Team Manager William Yokley. Yokley saw
that Jarrod was being held up by several riders,
keeping him from moving up towards the front to
join the battle. The decision was made to
send him on another lap without refueling,
thinking there was no chance of him running out
of gas. Yokley felt like Jarrod was in
contention for a top 5 finish without a doubt,
but that wasn’t the case.
When he failed to complete the next lap, the
team knew he had run out of gas, and William
felt horrible for making that decision.
Jarrod McClure, having the never give up
attitude, pushed his ATV back to the pits to
re-fuel and enter the track where he left it. He
was able to finish the race in 12th place for
A special thanks goes to Moto Pro training
for putting together an awesome work out and
nutrition program for our team, because there is
no way anyone could race an hour, then
push the quad to the pits, and go back out for
another hour without being in the best of shape!
We would like to congratulate MCR/ Maxxis
Racing’s Beau Baron on his flawless win over the
rest of the field in his quest to defend his
title again this year in the WORCS series.
