2014 John Yokley Big Buck GNCC Side by Side Report

Team Big Country Powersports driver John Yokley and his passenger Jarrod McClure captured a fourth place finish at the Big Buck GNCC in Union, S.C. on Saturday. It was a beautiful day for racing as the temperatures were around the 70-degree mark for Round 2 of the AMSOIL GNCC Side-by-Side Championship.

Beginning on the first row, John fired up his Polaris RZR 900 right away but a couple of small mistakes led him to the back of the pack heading into the woods. From there, it was a challenge to see through the dust but John eventually made his way up to the physical leaders where he battled for the rest of the race.

“We didn’t get a very good start and then it was so dusty you couldn’t see anything the first lap. Jarrod and I fell back there pretty far,” John said. “Once we got back into where you can see in the tighter woods, we kind of started moving up. For about three laps we were battling with Scott Kiger and a couple other guys and that was fun.”

With one victory behind them at the season opener, Team Big Country Powersports still holds the points lead in the XC1 Modified championship standings.

“There’s a lot of stiff competition this year and I know it’ll be tough every round. We tried to be smart at the end there and not push it too hard,” John said. “We’re definitely in it for the championship so every point is valuable.”
