Yokley Earns Top-10 Finish in Kentucky

Press Release –

Monster Energy Kawasaki ATV rider William Yokley rounded out the top-10 during the seventh round of the GNCC series in Sparta, Ky.

Coming off a four-week break, Yokley was ready to turn out a good performance in front of a hometown crowd. After quickly starting his Kawasaki KFX®450, he headed into the woods just outside the top-10. On the third lap, Yokley unknowingly knocked both front tires off the bead in a wooded section, making for less than precise steering. He stuck with it and came across the finish in 10th.

“I am amazed I was able to finish the race,” said Yokley. “Other than the tires, we also found out that my water pump cover was damaged and the radiator was bone dry,” said Yokley. “The engine held up great under those circumstances.”

He added, “I was happy to know the little things I have encountered this year seem to be corrected. That helps your confidence a whole lot.”

Yokley currently sits ninth in the XC1 point standings.

The Monster Energy Kawasaki ATV team will head to brand-new venue in Snowshoe, W. Va., on June 23, for round eight of the GNCC ATV Series.
