Chino, Calif. - September 28, 2009 - Rockstar/Makita/Suzuki/Yoshimura's Chris Borich wrapped up the GNCC ATV Championship this weekend at the Yadkin Valley round of the 2009 series. This GNCC Championship Title was the first for Borich, Suzuki and Yoshimura. It was a dream season for Mr. Borich and his trusty QuadRacer R450 with eight wins and nine podiums. Although the series Championship has now been decided, there are still two more races up for grabs.
Yoshimura's Vice President Brant Russell was enthusiastic about the title victory. "Chris has ridden great all year and it is particularly gratifying to see it pay off at the end of the day. On behalf of everyone at Yoshimura, we are honored to have Chris fly the Yoshimura colors."
Russell also commented on the dominance of Suzuki this season: "It's been a great year for Suzuki ATV Racing. Dustin Wimmer took his Rockstar/Makita/Suzuki/Yoshimura machine to the Championship in the AMA Pro ATV Motocross Championship Series as well, making it a clean sweep for the dominant QuadRacer R450. It is obvious what the you need to win in ATV racing these days: a Suzuki QuadRacer R450, a lot of Rockstar to give you that great taste and energy, Makita Tools to help keep everything together, and a Yoshimura pipe to pump out the ponies. It's easy!"
Borich was smart and consistent all year in capturing the number one plate from perennial winner Bill Ballance. Hopefully Borich will be running this number for a long time to come. "It feels really great winning this title and I hope to be able to repeat!" Chris said after the event. "It seems like everything came together this year and I couldn't be happier."
