Summary – Side by Side
The Ironman is always the most popular and
well attended race of the GNCC Series, and this
year was no different with more than 10,000 fans
lining the course. It rained all day
Friday and most of the night, making the course
very difficult. The weather cleared for
Saturday’s Side by Side race and all the racers
thought the track was a blast to drive.
There were the typical Ironman obstacles;
several mudholes, the river crossing and the
steep Ironman Hillclimb, as well as high speed
When the green flag dropped, Coastal National
Guard’s Scott Kiger nailed the holeshot with
teammate William Yokley running second. As
things sorted out on the first lap, Kiger
continued to hold the lead. There were
several deep mud sections that had multiple
lines available, which made for passing
opportunities. Scott got held up in a
section when a small tree got stuck between his
wheel and the frame, allowing William to get by.
It took 7 people and almost 4 minutes to get his
car unstuck! By this time, he was at the
tail end of the competitors.
Yokley was able to keep a good pace and stay
out of trouble for the remainder of the 6 lap
race. Scott Kiger did a great job working
his way up through the field on a course that
was difficult to pass. He passed 16 teams
to finish 4th Overall!
The GNCC Side by season ended with Yokley
winning the National Championship and Kiger
taking a close runner-up position. This is
a great accomplishment for the Polaris Coastal
National Guard Team, and the Polaris RZR XP900.
The machines ran strong and were extremely
reliable all season long. The team looks
forward to defending the title in 2013!
