The Ironman GNCC Pro ATV Race Report

Crawfordsville, Indiana, October 20, 2012 - National Guard / Coastal / Bowers Motorcycle Supplies / Yokley Racing Team rider Jarrod McClure finished 2nd Overall and 2nd in the XC1 Pro Class.  There were 176 total entries including 15 XC1 Pro racers.

Summary

With only two races left in the 2012 GNCC Pro ATV calendar, everyone wants to finish the season out strong.  Jarrod McClure has always done well at the Ironman, and was looking forward to the race.  Heavy rain on Friday made sure that the course would be plenty challenging with lots of mudholes and slick hills.

Jarrod got a good start and entered the woods in 3rd place.  He passed the first two racers and completed lap 1 in the lead.  It was a tight 5-way battle for the lead that was constantly changing.  There were so many muddy hills and deep ruts that everyone was getting stuck once or twice a lap.  The 10,000 spectators were scattered all along the track, especially on the hill climbs and mudholes.  The fans would jump right in and help the racers who got stuck.

On the 4th and final lap, several of the leaders got stuck on the steepest hillclimb, including Jarrod.  The fans grabbed ahold of his machine and got him going with little delay.  He got out in the final high speed cornfield section with nobody close to him.  He didn’t know if he was 1st or 5th, so he charged as hard as possible to the finish.  At the finish, he was a close 2nd place, his best finish of the year!  He moved up to 5th in the season points with just one race to go at Loretta Lynns Ranch in Hurricane Mills, Tennessee on November 3.  We’ll see you there!
