Shermansdale, PA (09/26/2011) – Cecco Racing’s Rick Cecco made his return to the 2011 GNCC series for rounds number ten and eleven after taking a short break to spend time with his family. Despite his two round absence, Cecco finished in the top five in the 4x4 Open class in both rounds.

After testing and training during his off time, Rick Cecco was hoping to come back strong at round ten at Unadilla and was looking good as he was keeping up with the front runners, but a mechanical failure would set him back. Cecco was still able to continue racing despite the issue and rounded out the top five in his class.

Cecco was hoping for better results at Mountain Ridge’s round eleven in him home state of Pennsylvania. Cecco was looking good off the start and had moved from fifth into fourth place. Cecco was pacing himself and trying his best to survive in the tough rocky conditions that claimed many victims over the course of the race. Cecco held on and was able to claim a fourth place finish at the end of the day, even after suffering a mechanical issue due to the rough terrain.

“In the last two races we suffered two separate parts failures that I have never encountered before. It is unfortunate, but that is where we are right now,” stated Rick Cecco, who is accustomed to finishing within the top three of his class.

"The competition has been intense this year and the front runners are leaving no room for mistakes or mechanical issues to get in the way. You absolutely have to be on top of your game out there,” Cecco added.

Round number twelve of the 2011 GNCC series will be heading to Power Line Park in St. Clairsville, OH on October 8th, where Rick Cecco took the 4x4 Open win last year and is looking to top his class podium once again and shake up the points standings before the end of the season in November at Loretta Lynn’s.
