The Loretta Lynn’s
GNCC Pro ATV Race Report
Hurricane Mills, Tennessee, November 5, 2011
- National Guard Coastal Yokley Racing Team
rider Jarrod McClure finished 5th Overall and
5th in the XC1 Pro class today. There were
120 total entries including 13 XC1 Pro racers.
This GNCC was a make up race because the
spring race was postponed due to flooding.
The weather was perfect, nice and cool with
sunny skies. The track was very rough
since the motorcycle pros ran the course the day
before. There were the typical rocks and
whooped out sections, with parts of the famous
Loretta Lynn’s National Motocross course
utilized as well. The course crossed a
fairly deep creek twice each lap.
The flag dropped and Jarrod battled with
9-time champ Bill Ballance for the holeshot.
He ran with the top 4 throughout lap1. The
creek crossings were deep, and at times the
water was higher than the wheels and exhaust
system. You had to be careful not to drown
out the engine.
Jarrod ran in 5th position on laps 2 through
5, and did not have any problems. He did
say that the track was the most physically
demanding of any on the GNCC circuit. He
finished the race in 5th, and in doing so he
climbed up the season point standing to 6th in
the XC1 Pro division.
Jarrod travels to California on Tuesday to
race the last WORCS event this next weekend.
The actual race is in Surprise, Arizona, and
will be his final pro race of the 2011 season.
Thanks to all our sponsors for the support
and encouragement this year!
