The River Ranch GNCC Pro ATV Race Report

River Ranch, Florida, March 11, 2012 - National Guard / Coastal / Bowers Motorcycle Supplies / Yokley Racing Team rider Jarrod McClure did not finish today after experiencing a mechanical failure.  There were 122 total entries including 13 XC1 Pro racers.

Summary

Jarrod had a good off-season after a long 2011 campaign where he raced in both the WORCS and GNCC Series.  He trained and tested in Florida leading up to the season opener in River Ranch.  After winning the GNCC 2011 “Most improved rider Award” at last year’s banquet, he was looking forward to competing for wins in the XC1 Pro Class this year.

River Ranch is a difficult test for rider and machine with deep sand whoops and palmetto roots.  It shows who is prepared and in shape, and who is not.  The weather was good with temps in the 70’s, but just as the afternoon pro race was lining up, the skies opened up and rained heavily.  The sandy soil soaks a lot of the moisture up, but it still makes the ruts deeper and exposes the palmetto roots which can unexpectedly and quickly yank the machine off course.

The flag dropped for the 2012 season and Jarrod got the holeshot, winning the $250 Holeshot Award.  He led for much of lap 1, and came through the scoring chute in 2nd place, just behind Adam McGill and in front of Chris Borich.  Jarrod felt confident and the National Guard / Coastal / Bowers Motorcycle Supplies / Yokley Racing ATV was handling well.  On lap 2, he had a terminal mechanical failure which ended his day.  Jarrod was disappointed, but was very encouraged about how he and his machine were competing.

There is a short week before the next event in Georgia on March 17.  Much cleanup, repairs and preparation have to be made for that race in the red Georgia clay.  Jarrod will be ready, and he will join the National Guard / Polaris / Coastal / Yokley Racing Side by Side Team in Georgia, where the Side by Sides begins their GNCC season.
