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.
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
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
