The John Penton
GNCC Pro ATV Race Report
Millfield, Ohio, July 7, 2012 - National
Guard / Coastal / Bowers Motorcycle Supplies /
Yokley Racing Team rider Jarrod McClure finished
6th Overall and 6th in the XC1 Pro Class.
Total entry numbers were not available from the
GNCC at the time of this report.
The main concern for everyone at this year’s
John Penton GNCC was the heat wave that is
hanging over the eastern US. Temperatures
for race day were well over 100 degrees with
high humidity, making it hard on everyone.
The course consisted of some new, technical
woods sections, open fields, creek crossings and
the Sunday Creek Raceway motocross track.
At the start, Jarrod’s machine did not
immediately fire up, putting him near the rear
of the XC1 Pros going into the woods. He
quickly worked his way up to 5th place halfway
through lap 1. The field sections were
very dusty, and Jarrod hit a stump that he
couldn’t see. The resulting impact threw
him off the ATV, forcing him to dodge other
riders as he tried to locate his machine!
After losing a few positions, he got going and
tried to make up some ground.
Jarrod worked his way up to a 6th place
finish on the last lap. These were some of
the hottest and toughest conditions in which
Jarrod has competed. The GNCC now takes
their summer break and the next event is the
Unadilla in New Berlin New York on September 15.
See you there!
