The Big Buck GNCC ATV Race Report

Union, South Carolina, April 9, 2011 - National Guard Coastal Yokley Racing ATV Team rider Jarrod McClure finished 43rd Overall and 11th XC1 Pro today in Round 4 of the 2011 GNCC Series after experiencing mechanical issues.  There were 170 total entries with 13 XC1 Pro Racers.

Summary

Jarrod McClure has been having good finishes so far this GNCC season, and he was hoping to continue that at the Big Buck in South Carolina.  The track had the usual tight woods and mudholes, but there were also many wide-open fast sections.  It was quite warm today with temps in the 80s.

Jarrod has been on a roll lately, getting holeshots in the past several races.  Today was no different, as he once again got the lead at the start.  Adam McGill assumed the lead as they headed into the woods.  About 2 miles into the race, McGill went in a mudhole, and got momentarily stuck.  Jarrod was committed in the same ruts and had to stop in the deepest part of the bog.  McGill was able to get free quickly, but Jarrod was stuck pretty badly.  When he finally got free, all the XC1 Pro riders had passed him.

He put the hammer down and passed several riders, finishing lap 1 in 9th.  On lap 2, he caught some more riders and was in 7th.  Misfortune struck on lap 3, when he clipped a tree and badly bent his tie rod, making it almost impossible to steer.  He limped down an access road back to the pits, and the crew went to work to try to fix it.  They removed the bent piece and straightened it the best they could.

With the repairs completed, he took off and re-entered the course where he exited it earlier.  At this point, Jarrod was almost 1 lap down in 90th overall.  He worked his way back to 43rd overall in the last 2 laps.  One little miscalculation pretty much ruined his day.  Fortunately, he did not injure himself!  He remains in 5th place in season GNCC points.  Jarrod will now get ready for the long trip to the west coast for the next WORCS race in Anza, CA on April 23.  See you at the races!
