Seat Race Report
The event was held on a traditionally tight and
tough course. With beautiful weather in the area,
the racers took on the rough and gnarly racing
surface comprising sand, and lots of mud.

Boynton and Rush battled throughout the race,
before Boynton made a move stick in the woods
section late in the event. From there he cruised
scored the Win at the GNCC Racing Season
“I saw the leader run a pretty creative move,”
said Boynton. “I tried a new line and we touched
a little bit and I took the lead. He rolled in
front of me and I went right under his tires.
It was a very adventurous day.”
Rush fell back to second at the end, but was
happy to start the season with a podium finish.
Torey Rush finished in the 2nd Spot
“There was some really tight passing here,” said
Rush. “Robert got me in a tight place in the trees.
I can’t thank Polaris Factory Racing enough.”
After a 4th
place start, Dillon Harper claimed the
final spot on the GNCC Racing Season Opener
Yokley took the holeshot and was leading, but
fell back when he tipped over and had to right
his machine. He rebounded to finish fourth.
GNCC Single Seat Champion, Sam Yokley,
grabbed the holeshot, but he rolled over,
which dropped him back to 4th place
“It went great, as usual,” said Yokley. “I was
leading, but I tipped it over and had to get it
righted and get back in. From there, I just finished.
I’m not a big fan of the sand here, but the machine
is really working great.”
Stracham, who is paralyzed from the waist down,
returned to Racer Tech this year. She piloted
her hand-control equipped ACE to fifth in the
