Yorkley Racing

The John Penton GNCC Pro ATV & Youth Race Report

Millfield, Ohio, July 9, 2011 - National Guard Coastal Yokley Racing Team rider Jarrod McClure finished 5th Overall and 5th in the XC1 Pro class today.  There were 164 total entries including 14 XC1 Pro racers.  Yokley Racing Youth ATV Team rider Kalab Hagan finished 2nd in the 90 Open (8-11) class. There were 82 total entries including 13 in his class

Summary – XC1 Pro ATV

The track at Millfield can be really muddy, or really dusty.  Today’s race was run in almost perfect conditions after receiving some rain recently; it was sunny and the temperature in the 80’s.  There was very little dust, and there were some muddy hillclimbs and creek crossings.  The course included a pro-style motocross track as well as tight woods sections.

Jarrod McClure got off the line well, but someone ran over his rear tire in the first turn, almost flipping him over.  He completed lap 1 in 6th position, and was being smart with his line selections in the muddy areas.  He moved into 5th on lap 2, and maintained that position to the finish.  Many of the pro riders were getting stuck, but Jarrod said he never did.  He attributed that to the new Kenda tires and Tireballs, and was really stoked about the traction they provided.

All in all, it was a good weekend for the National Guard Coastal ATV team.  Jarrod’s next pro race is a WORCS event in Washougal, WA on August 20, and his next GNCC event is “The Unadilla” in New Berlin, NY on September 10.

Summary – Youth ATV

In only his second race on an ATV, Kalab Hagan finished 2nd in class and 5th overall, against older kids on more powerful ATVs.  William Yokley has been mentoring Kalab on riding techniques and bike setups, and he is showing good results.

Kalab will be participating in other regional races during the GNCC summer break.
