Summary – Side by Side Race
The National Guard Coastal Yokley Racing Team
traveled to Glen Helen Raceway in Southern
California after a brief summer break.
Glen Helen hosts many different types of
off-road races, including the AMA National
Motocross Series. The course features a
pro style mx course with many steep hills and
lots of natural elevation changes. The
weather was sunny and 85 degrees.
William Yokley was in 4th place after the
first turn, with teammate Scott Kiger right
behind. The two National Guard Coastal
Polaris Ranger RZR XP900s moved up to 2nd and
3rd going into the second lap. They stayed
in those positions for the next several laps.
Scott dropped back to 5th place after damaging
his front differential on one of the many rocks.
William had a nice battle with the lead machine,
finally finishing in 2nd place, and Scott coming
home in 5th place. The course was pretty
rough, with many sandy washboard sections with
choppy, square-edged whoops. Both machines
ran strong and cool, thanks to their large
capacity radiators and cooling systems built by
Yokley increased his lead in the WORCS season
points, and Scott is in 4th. The next side
by side race is the GNCC in St.Clairsville Ohio
on October 8.
Summary – Pro ATV Race
Jarrod McClure traveled straight from the
GNCC race in New York last weekend to California
to prepare for this weekend’s WORCS race.
He got a poor start, and was toward the rear of
the field on lap 1. He steadily worked his
way forward on his National Guard Coastal ATV.
His progress slowed toward the end of the 9 lap
race when he damaged a rear wheel on a rock.
This caused his machine to veer off line when he
accelerated. Jarrod finished in 6th place
at the end of the 90 minute race. He is in
6th place in WORCS season points.
Jarrod liked the track, but said the many
rocks were quite a challenge. Jarrod will
travel back across the country to next week’s
GNCC ATV race in Somerset Pennsylvania.
