Limetone 100 GNCC
Round 6 - ATV Racing Links
Springfield, IN (5/12/2012) – It wasn’t long ago that Chris Borich was chasing the likes of GNCC icons Bill Ballance and Barry Hawk through the XC1 Pro ranks, in hopes to one day become a multi-time champion too. But with three titles under his belt already, Borich is well on his way to a fourth as he’s swept five of the six rounds in the 2012 Can-Am Grand National Cross Country Series. Much speculation buzzed around this weekend’s new Dunlop Limestone 100 venue, which heightened the already tight-knit race action and created an even more level playing field in the ATV competition. But it was once again Chris Borich who showed true champion composure while mapping out a strategic lead in the final stretch of the two-hour race in southern Indiana.

Bowers / Coastal National Guard / Yokley Racing’s Jarrod McClure grabbed his second $250 Holeshot Award of the season through the windy turns of the Lawrence County Recreational Park, but some early carnage with AMA ATV Motocross Pro Derek Swartfager caused McClure to drop back a few positions. Swartfager got sideways heading into the woods and tagged a tree, stopping up a majority of the XC1 field behind. That’s when GBC / Cernic s/ HMF / Yamaha’s Johnny Gallagher, JG Offroad/FRE/American Honda’s Brian Wolf and BNR’s Kevin Yoho made their escape from the pack and began pulling a gap early on.

Wolf took over the lead on the opening lap and there began the intense battle amongst the top seven riders. Precision/Moto X Perts/ITP/Lonestar/RG Motorsports’ Adam McGill, Walker Fowler, Taylor Kiser and McClure pitted against one another right away and Maxxis/Yoshimura’s Chris Borich came into the mix around lap 3. “I had a decent start and the guy who was leading bumped a tree and I went from a halfway decent start to almost last,” Borich said.

The Ballance Racing Yamaha duo of Fowler and Kiser pitted around the halfway point and opened the door for Wolf and McClure to chase the leaders of McGill and Borich. In the midst of the intense freight train action, the top contenders made it a point to show the spectators just how much fun they were having on the course.

McClure put himself within striking distance of the leaders in the second half of the race and it appeared that he might grab his first podium finish of the year, until he began experiencing mechanical issues on the fourth lap. This marks yet another mechanical issue for McClure this season, but the Pennsylvania still holds tenth overall in the standings with two fourth place finishes so far.
