Yokley Racing ATV Report – Steele Creek GNCC

Yokley Race Summary
Sunny and warm conditions greeted the racers as the series moved to the picturesque Steel Creek area in North Carolina. This race is usually run in wet conditions, but this year it was very dry, hot and dusty. Jarrod got a decent start and got into the woods in eighth place. After a few turns in the woods, there was a bottleneck caused by some ATVs getting tangled up. After this was sorted out, Jarrod was back toward the rear of the Pro class at the end of the first lap.
Jarrod finished lap one in 12th place, and worked his way up to 9th place in the XC1 Pro class by the fifth lap. He finished up about one second out of 6th place, so it was a very competitive race. The track deteriorated very much throughout the race, which made the conditions pretty brutal. The Polaris 450 Outlaw ran flawlessly throughout the day.
The team has some testing planned for next week and will work on fine tuning everything. We look forward to the next race in Union, SC in two weeks. Jarrod will be on the ATV, and William Yokley will be racing the National Guard Polaris Dragonfire Yokley Racing UTV there as well. See you there!
