Mountaineer Run GNCC
Round 7 - ATV Racing Links
Masontown, WV (5/27/2012) – Marvin’s Mountain Top was the site of another victory for defending pro champ, Chris Borich, at round number seven of the 2012 GNCC series, where Yamaha /Ballance Racing teammates Taylor Kiser and Walker Fowler joined him on the pro podium.

The Mountaineer Run featured a track that was similar to the last three rounds with plenty of rocks, trees, hill climbs, and of course, a few mud holes. The weather was quite warm with temps hovering around 90 degrees, but that was no match for a determined Chris Borich.

Chris Borich continued his domination in the XC1 Pro class with his fourth straight win at the Mountaineer Run. Borich was in the number three spot behind Taylor Kiser and Adam McGill going into the first lap, but in lap two Borich inherited second when McGill dropped back. Borich stayed close to Kiser, and in the third lap, Borich took over the lead. Borich began to pull away and took the win by over three minutes ahead of Kiser.

Yamaha / Ballance Racing’s Taylor Kiser was in second off the start and inherited the lead after Adam McGill encountered issues. Kiser was looking strong out front, but Chris Borich was close behind. Kiser held off the competition for two laps, before Borich got by, putting Kiser in second. Kiser held his position for the remainder of the race despite his teammate Walker Fowler closing in late in the race. “It was a good track and a good race. I was in the lead for a couple of laps and didn’t make any mistakes but Chris got by me at the white flag,” said Kiser.

Yamaha / Ballance Racing’s Walker Fowler didn’t get the best start as he was only in the number nine spot in the first lap. Fowler was on a mission, however, and charged his way into sixth place by the end of the second lap. Fowler stayed in sixth for another lap before making another charge and making his way into third in the final lap. Fowler was looking strong and held his position all the way to the checkered flag for the final spot on the podium.
