Crash Addict / Pirate MX's Ironman GNCC Single Seat Race Report

Parkersburg, WV (10/30/2017) – Crash Addict Racing/Pirate MX driver Treavis Poynter won the single seat race during the Ironman GNCC in Crawfordsville, IN. Driving a Polaris ACE XP 900, Poynter dominated the race and finished first, just ahead of team owner John Baughman.

Poynter took the lead at the start and he put on a show during the event. After showing an aerial display across the start/finish jump, Poynter immediately began gapping the field and then toned it down on the final lap to earn the victory in just his second start. He finished third in his debut in the class last race.

“It was a win or wad today,” said Poynter. “We’re not in the points so we were just out here having fun. I’m glad Polaris got the idea to come out with these Aces because they are so much fun. On the first lap we jumped 60 or 70 feet at 10 feet in the air in a bone stock Ace. I pulled a pretty big lead and got the win.”

Poynter was running his second race for Pirate MX. The team, which received tuning assistance from Bikeman Performance, entered a second machine in the last two races to help further develop their ACE. Poynter finished third in his class debut at the Powerline Park GNCC.

“Pirate MX’s John Baughman bought an Ace earlier this year ,and I got him hooked up with Bikeman Performance,” said Poynter. “They did a tune for him, and he brought me out to help progress his team. He got second, so it was a good day for Pirate MX with a 1-2.”

Though the rules allow very few modifications to the stock ACE, what they allowed Pirate MX did. Crash Addict Industries built the car and Poynter ran DWT Wheels with GBC Tires and Tire Balls.

“The DWT Wheels narrowed it up for us with their new Sector Zero wheels,” said Poynter. “We had the GBC Dirt Commanders on with Tire Balls. The Crash Addict Cage, Innovative Safety Products Seat and Mastercraft Harnesses kept me safe. We had the Bikeman Tune, which really helped this thing rip. I had so much fun today.”

For Poynter, it was the perfect end to a long year of racing, and now he will switch his focus to attention on Crash Addict Industries.
