Guard / Yokley Racing's Jarrod McClure placed
fourth overall at the Snowshoe GNCC
One of the most interesting and unusual stops
on the GNCC circuit is the Snowshoe. Taking place
at the famed Snowshoe Resort in West Virginia,
the race is known as one of the most difficult
of the year. The racers as well as the fans love
the amenities of the facility; great hotel accommodations,
several restaurants, and ski lifts to transport
you to different sections of the course.
The course goes up, down and around the main
mountain. Steep hill climbs, many mud bog sections
and lots of rocks make this a tough one just to
finish. The start is on the main street right
in front of the hotels featuring a Grand Prix
style live engine start. Five ATVs per row are
flagged off every few seconds, racing through
the resort and then out into the mountain trails.
Jarrod McClure started on Row 2 and as they headed
out of town, he was leading his group. He finished
lap 1 in 6th place, and tried to maintain a fast
pace without tearing up his equipment. There were
many mud holes that could swallow up your machine
if you did not select the right line. The many
fans loved watching the wild action in the woods!
Pit stops were completed at the half way point,
and Jarrod was in 5th place. On the 5th and final
lap, Jarrod caught up to and passed Taylor Kiser,
and was closing in on Walker Fowler. Late in the
race, Jarrod got hung up briefly and had to settle
for 4th overall.
The next event for the National Guard / Coastal
/ Bowers / Yokley ATV Team is at the John Penton
GNCC in Millfield Ohio on July 7. We’ll
see you there!
