Summary – Side by Side
The John Penton GNCC course is always
challenging with tight Ohio woods sections, open
fields and the Sunday Creek Motocross course.
This year, the Racer Production team cut in more
than a mile of virgin woods trails, making it
The National Guard Coastal Polaris Team prepared
the best they could for the oppressive heat.
With the temperature well over 100 degrees and
high humidity, plenty of hydration is very
important. At the start, the Yoshimura
tuned Polaris machines of Yokley and Kiger were
1st and 2nd as they headed into the woods.
Yokley came out of the woods onto the motocross
track section at the end of lap 1 with a 30
second lead. As he went back into the
woods, his machine started overheating with
radiator issues. Not wanting to damage the
engine so early in the race, William decided to
shut it off.
Scott Kiger ran a smart, smooth race and settled
into 3rd place. The woods sections and the
motocross course were pretty dust free, but the
open field sections were so dusty you could
barely see. Scott was consistent and
finished up on the podium in 3rd overall.
The GNCC now takes its summer break, and the
next Side by Side race is the Power Line Park
GNCC in St. Clairsville Ohio on October 6.
Have a safe and enjoyable summer; we’ll see you
at the next race!
