#2 Chris Borich Takes
the Win & regains the points lead
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".

few laps saw some closing up but at the checkers

was at the start. Wimmer crossed the line in
3rd place, his work cut out for him in moto

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."
