Jarrod McClure earns top-10 finish
Yokley Racing National Guard Polaris Team Rider Jarrod McClure finished 7th Overall and 6th in the XC1 Pro Class Sunday in Round 1 of the 2010 GNCC Series. There were 169 total entries with 16 XC1 Pro Riders.
Yokley Racing began the 2010 season on a high note with Team Rider Jarrod McClure finishing strong despite some delays on the course today. Jarrod signed with the team in the off-season, and has spent the winter getting his new Polaris Outlaw 450 dialed in. Team owner William Yokley has worked with EXIT Suspension and Roll Design the past several months in making the 2010 450 Outlaw a legitimate contender in the series.
Jarrod got a great start and went into the woods in 4th place. He kept pace with the leaders until a stick kicked up under the machine and derailed the chain. The chain was jammed up in the engine cases by the countershaft sprocket. After a lengthy delay, he was able to get the chain back on the sprockets. The chain was stretched and came off again down the trail. Jarrod nursed the machine to the finish without losing very many places.
“The bike worked great today, and other than the chain getting knocked off, I had no problems,” says McClure. “I felt strong and can’t wait for the next race!”
“The Polaris is working really well, and Jarrod rode a smart race today,” says Yokley. “I’m very optimistic about our chances this year!”
The team heads to Washington Georgia for Round 2 this next weekend. McClure will compete in the ATV XC1 Pro class and Yokley will compete in the UTV side by side class driving his Polaris RZR.
