(April 11, 2011) Big Buck in Union, SC was Round 4 of the Can-Am GNCC race series this past weekend. Twin Air sponsored riders were again at the front of the race. Warm, dry, and dusty conditions challenged the rider's endurance.
In the morning races Twin Air sponsored riders took three class wins, a second place finish, and a third place finish. In the women's class it was the Twin Air sponsored Foremost Insurance/Warnert Racing/Can-Am racer Lexie Coulter taking her second win of the season and second overall for the morning race. She sits in first place in points for the season. U2 class racer Clifton Beasley took his Twin Air sponsored UXC Racing Can-Am to his fourth consecutive win and sits on top of the point standings. Meanwhile in the 4x4 Open class Twin Air riders Bryan Buckhannon and UXC Racing's Michael Swift lead the pack with first and second finishes. Swift leads the points with Buckhannon sitting in second. Twin Air sponsored Mike Penland finished the day in third in the 4x4 Super Senior Class. It was a great weekend of racing for our morning class racers.
The afternoon races saw more success for our riders. Twin Air sponsored Rockstar/Makita/Suzuki rider Chris Borich rebounded from a disappointing fifth place finish at round three with a dominating XC-1 Pro win at round four. Electrical problems dropped him back after taking the lead at round three. He came to Big Buck wanting to show his competitors what he is made of. He took the lead earlier in the race than in past races and pulled away to take a convincing win. He extended his points lead in the process. Twin Air sponsored Foremost Insurance/Warnert Racing/Can-Am riders Adam McGill and Chris Bithell had great days as well. McGill charged to the front of the race early and lead for a couple of laps. McGill and Borich pulled away from the rest of the pack. Borich made a pass to take the lead but McGill stayed with him for a while. McGill dropped back a bit but held on for a strong second place performance. He now sits in second overall for the season. Bithell's race started off with a mid pack start. He was able to move up to fourth by race end finishing behind third place rider Taylor Kiser. Rounding out the top five was Twin Air sponsored FRE/KTM rider Bryan Cook. He is now in sixth place overall after four rounds.
In XC-2 racing action Twin Air sponsored DeRisi Racing rider Eric Hoyland finished on the podium again with a third place finish. He sits in third overall for the season. Fellow Twin Air rider Patrick McGuire had his best finish of the year with an impressive fourth place finish. That moves him into the sixth position for the season. In other afternoon race action, DeRisi Racing rider Luke Reeves took home the second place position in the Junior A class. His consistent performances this year have him in second place in the point standings.
Round five of the GNCC series takes us to Loretta Lynn's in Hurricane Mills, TN. It is sure to be another great weekend of racing as the points battles heat up.
