Press Release –
It started in Union South Carolina at the grueling Big Buck GNCC event. Rockstar/Makita/Suzuki/Yoshimura racer Chris Borich became the first double winner as he made a last lap pass for the win.
Round Three of the GNCC Grand National Cross Country series saw a tight and technical track where one mistake on the red clay could put you into the trees.
“The woods were really tight and it was easy to make a mistake.” Borich said from atop the victory podium after the event. “My Suzuki QuadRacer R450 was flawless, we were in a train there for a while, it was a good time, pretty much like trail riding. I got a good start and didn’t make any mistakes. McGill clipped a tree on the last lap, I got right on him and then passed him about a hundred yards from the checkered flag and that was it.”
Borich’s win puts him at the top of the points standings after three rounds in the series.
Meanwhile over in the AMA Pro ATV Motocross world, Rockstar/Makita /Suzuki/Yoshimura phenomenon Dustin Wimmer showed up at Ballance Motocross in Bowling Green Kentucky with three straight moto wins under his belt.
Dustin “Mr. Smooth” Wimmer was all of that in pre-race qualifying and practice sessions setting fast times in every session. Wimmer was almost a full second faster then any of the other competitors in race day warm-ups. Many trackside pundits were wondering if anyone could catch “Mr. Smooth”.
At the drop of the gate Wimmer started out in 3rd and the moto more or less settled in with little passing going on up front. The last few laps saw some closing up but at the checkers the finishing order remained the same as it was at the start. Wimmer crossed the line in 3rd place, his work cut out for him in moto two.
Moto two saw Wimmer once again cross the line in 3rd, yielding 3rd place overall; and Wimmers third straight podium finish of the year. With his placing, Wimmer retains his points lead and remains the man to beat for the title in 2009.
“My Rockstar / Makita / Suzuki / Yoshimura QuadRacer R450 ran great today.” Dustin Wimmer said after the event, “I got two top three starts and rode good all day; but could never get in the groove. I’m going to go home and do some hard work and come back strong at Danville.”
