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.
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
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
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.
