Gosport, Indiana, May 14, 2011 - National Guard Coastal Yokley Racing Team rider Jarrod McClure finished 12th Overall and 11th in the XC1 Pro class today.  There were 205 total entries including 15 XC1 Pro racers.

Summary

Jarrod McClure has had a very busy race schedule so far this year, and has been improving his finishes.  He has been getting great starts and has consistently been competing for podium finishes.  He was ready to continue the trend at this new GNCC venue in Gosport Indiana, about 30 miles south of Indianapolis.

The afternoon Pro ATV race started under warm, sunny conditions.  When the flag dropped, Jarrod got another great start, rounding the second turn in 2nd place.  He quickly got the lead and set a fast pace.  He completed lap 1 in 1st position, and looked like he was capable of not only finishing on the podium, but maybe even a win.

Jarrod had changed his set up slightly for this race, deciding to go with a full skid plate set up instead of a smaller, less protective cover.  The ruts were severe in the creek and mud sections, and the full skid plate caused his machine to get hung up more easily.  This happened a few times on the next couple of laps.

Then all heck broke loose when a heavy rainstorm erupted!  It rained so much, so quickly, that the creeks rose and the mud got so deep that is made the course almost impossible to get around.  Jarrod got stuck several more times, and when they finally stopped the race at 90 minutes, he was back in 12th Overall.

What started out as a very promising day ended with just trying to finish and salvage as many points as possible.  Jarrod will head back home to Pennsylvania and regroup for the next ATV GNCC round in Patton, PA.  Hopefully, there will not be any floods there!  See you there.
