2015 John Penton GNCC Side by Side Race Report

Round four of the six-race Side-by-Side Championship took place on Saturday in Millfield, Ohio, where team driver Sam Yokley led the Polaris/Coastal/CST/Yokley Racing team’s effort with his second victory of the season in the Polaris Single Seat division. Additionally, team driver Sean Bogdan captured his first victory of the season in the XC2 Pro Sport division.

The John Penton GNCC showcased dry and dusty conditions on Saturday with a lineup of nearly 70 Side-by-Side machines in the afternoon race. Team driver William Yokley and his passenger Tina began on the third row, where they put their Polaris RZR S 900 into a good position off the start. From there, the Yokley duo settled into a top five position, making their way into fourth by lap two. However, Yokley soon experienced an issue that would ultimately end his day after completing only three laps at the John Penton.

“The car felt great all day, we were coming up through the pack really well and making good passes but we just had some bad luck in the motocross section,” Yokley said. “We’ve got everything on the car working so well and I’m confident it’s the best machine out there. We’re looking forward to showing that in the final two rounds.”

Following a hard-fought seventh place finish at the last round, Scott Kiger and his passenger Tyler King were looking to put the Polaris RZR XP 1000 on top of the podium in Ohio. However, Kiger experienced a mechanical issue at the start of the race, ultimately ending his day before he was able to complete a lap.

In the XC2 Pro Sport division, Team Driver John Henry and his passenger Blake Tornes lined up on the aboard the Polaris RZR S 900, where they immediately began charging through the pack. Unfortunately, the team experienced a mechanical issue that ended their day as well.
