The Big Buck GNCC Pro ATV Race Report

Union, South Carolina, April 14, 2012 - National Guard / Coastal / Bowers Motorcycle Supplies / Yokley Racing Team rider Jarrod McClure finished 4th Overall and 4th in the XC1 Pro Class.  There were 157 total entries including 16 XC1 Pro racers.

Summary

After a solid finish at the last GNCC, Jarrod McClure was looking forward to another strong showing.  The Big Buck course features lots of ruts, technical sections and the famous creek jump where, if you come up short, you are in big trouble.  After walking the course on Friday, Jarrod knew that the race was going to be extremely dusty.  The start would be most important.

At the start of the pro race, Jarrod’s ATV would not fire, and only after several kicks did it finally start.  He was now dead last and looking straight into billowing dust clouds.  He cautiously started to run down his competitors, and by the end of lap 1 he was up to 8th place.  He lost a lot of time on the first lap, but was now moving toward the front.  On lap 2, he was up to 5th.  He moved up to 4th going into the final lap.  Jarrod continued to try to make up positions on the last lap, but clipped a tree, damaging his tie rod.  He limped his machine to the finish.

Jarrod rode a great race today under the adverse circumstances, finishing a season best 4th place.  He is very optimistic heading into the next GNCC, the Mammoth in Park City KY in two weeks.  This is a new GNCC location, and all indications are that it will be quite rugged with rutted, wooded trails that include lots of elevation changes.  The racing will take place over an old golf course which should make it very interesting.  We hope to see you there!
