GNCC Pro ATV Race Report
Washington, Georgia, March 17, 2012 -
National Guard / Coastal / Bowers Motorcycle
Supplies / Yokley Racing Team rider Jarrod
McClure did not finish today after experiencing
a mechanical failure. There were 173 total
entries including 16 XC1 Pro racers.
There are only six days between the last GNCC
ATV race in Florida and this race in Georgia.
Jarrod had the misfortune of having a mechanical
failure at the last race, and had to make the
repairs and get everything cleaned & prepped in
just a few days. He was able to get
everything ready to go, and had some time on
Friday to test the ATV and get in some riding.
The machine setup needs to be changed for
Georgia from sandy conditions in Florida to hard
packed clay. Jarrod had been getting great
starts recently, but when the flag dropped, his
machine did not immediately fire up. He
was in the back of the pack and completed lap 1
in 12th position. He charged hard for the
next 2 laps and worked his way to the lead pack
in 6th position. He was in a good position
and was able to run with the leaders.
Then, it happened again…another mechanical
failure, this time a suspected electrical
component. This is very frustrating, but
the only thing you can do is look forward to the
next race, prepare the best you can, and hope
that the problems don’t strike again.
Jarrod’s next race is the Steele Creek GNCC in
Morganton, NC on March 31.
