The Mammoth GNCC Pro ATV Race Report

Park City Kentucky, April 28, 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 189 total entries including 14 XC1 Pro racers.

Summary

The Mammoth is a new location on the GNCC schedule this year, and everyone was excited to experience a track that had never been ridden on.  The facility is a beautiful property located right next to Park Mammoth Resort Golf Course, and is a combination of fast, rolling field sections as well as lots of tight, freshly cut, and technical woods trails.  It was a hot day in the 80’s and the woods sections featured an abundance of rocks.

At the drop of the flag, Jarrod got a good start and was battling for position in turn 1 when he ran over another machine’s wheel.  The impact launched his ATV in the air with the rear end about 4 feet higher in the air than the front.  Jarrod managed to hang on and actually ran with the leaders in 3rd place going into lap 2.  Lapped riders were difficult to get around in the tight sections since there was usually only one racing line.

Jarrod held down 4th place the final 2 laps, and had to stop for another splash of fuel on the last lap to make sure he finished the 2 hour 18 minute race.  It was another good finish for Jarrod, and moved him up to 6th place in the GNCC XC1 Pro class season points.  The race course was very demanding and the hot weather tested everyone’s endurance.  Jarrod wanted to throw out a big thanks to Mark Spataro of Moto Pro Training for all his help and guidance with his fitness program.  You can clearly see how a great fitness coach can help your program and confidence, especially toward the end of races.

The next GNCC is another new venue in Springville, Indiana in two weeks, so it should be another great weekend of off-road racing.  We’ll see you there!
