Polaris takes first two 4x4 races of 2016
After starting out the season with a 1-2 finish in the 4×4 class at Round 1 of the 2016 GNCC Series in Florida, Team UXC found success again this past weekend in Sparta, Ga. at the Cannonball GNCC.
Pro 4×4 riders Michael Swift and Kevin Trantham got off the line mid-pack and made good progress through the course on their Polaris Scrambler 1000 EPS ATVs. At the end of lap one, Swift and Trantham were sitting second and third, pushing hard for the lead. Before the end of lap 2, they’d moved up to first and second.
With almost a minute lead over third place, Swift hit a tree branch that took out his fan. This caused his motor to overheat and he had to pull off the pace. That left Trantham up front, still with an impressive lead, to take the checkered flag and make it another Team UXC/Polaris Factory win.
“It was great to take my first win of the season and the 2nd win for Team UXC Racing,” said Trantham. “The Polaris Factory Racing package put together by Swift showed its strength today.”
The next GNCC ATV race is the FMF Steele Creek, in Morgantown, NC, on April 2.
