Summary – Side by Side Race
The National Guard Polaris Team made the long
trip to Idaho after last week’s GNCC race in
Pennsylvania. The Clay Peaks
Motocross Park is less than an hour from Boise
in a picturesque part of the state. The
terrain was hilly with many long up and down
sections, loamy motocross turns and sandy areas.
The weather was perfect, temps in the 70s and
At the drop of the flag and into the first
turn, Yokley was 2nd and Kiger was 5th.
There were a few sandy sections where the
visibility was poor and racers from about 4th on
back had to basically come to a standstill and
let the silky dust settle before they could
continue. This allowed the leader to
stretch out his margin by quite a bit going into
Once the racers separated a bit after a
couple of laps, the dust was less of a problem.
Yokley experienced a few issues, and
uncharacteristically dropped back in the pack.
Meanwhile, Scott Kiger was getting into a fast
race pace and moving toward the front. He
actually turned the fastest lap of all the Side
by Sides, but he had lost too much time on the
first lap to challenge for the win. The
National Guard Polaris Ranger RZR XP 900s were
handling and working well.
Kiger finished in 3rd with Yokley in 5th.
William maintained the lead in WORCS season
points, and Scott is in 6th position. The
Side by Side team has a summer break from
racing, and their next WORCS event is at the
Washougal Washington Motocross Park.
Summary – Pro ATV Race
National Guard Coastal rider Jarrod McClure
only had a week to heal up from his injuries
sustained at the last GNCC race. ATV Pro
practice was the first time that he was back on
the bike since his accident, and he was sore but
able to run a good pace. He did not earn a
good gate pick for the pro race due to some
problems in the timed practice.
When the gate dropped, Jarrod was squeezed
and bounced around in the first turn. He
was toward the back of the 14 rider pro class.
Like the Side by Side race, the dust was very
bad, allowing the front runners to get a big
gap. Jarrod rode a good race and worked
his way up to 8th by the finish of the 90 minute
race. His battered body held up well and
was able to finish strong. Jarrod’s next
race is in 3 weeks at the Snowshoe Mountain
GNCC. We’ll see you there!
