Polaris Off-Road Vehicles Shine at Terracross and GNCC
Minneapolis, Nov. 5, 2015- This past weekend, Polaris Off-Road Vehicles would take to the Terracross track, at Camp RZR West, in Glamis, Calif, and the Grand National Cross Country (GNCC) Ironman in Crawfordsville, Ind for both series’ season finales.
Round 5 and 6 of TerraCross would be held at Camp RZR with Jason Luburgh taking the checkered flag for Round 5, and also winning the points championship, with Cody Rahders in second and Dana Creech in third. For Round 6, Mitch Guthrie Jr. would get his first TerraCross win of the season. Cole Cottew would come in second and Brandon Schueler in third.
Team UXC Racing’s Michael Swift and Kevin Trantham came into the GNCC Ironman claiming 10 of 13 first place finishes in the Pro 4x4 Class. Unfortunately, dominating the podium was not enough to pull out the points championship with the Pro 4x4 Class championship hinged on the results of the last race of the season. Swift would have the chance to win the championship with a win at Ironman. Both he and Trantham would battle hard on their Scrambler 850s in what would be an epic race. At the checkered flag, they’d finish second and third as well as that for the season, an incredible feat for Swift’s second and Trantham’s first year on the Scrambler.
The GNCC single-seat class would see 10 ACEs line up, the most entries of the season. Dillon Harper would capture the checkered flag for his first win with Sam Yokley in his North Country Powersports ACE 570 taking second and the championship for the inaugural single-seat season. Team UXC’s Torrey Rush would take third in his first race in an ACE with teammate Marc Spataro finishing fourth. Jesi Stracham would round out the top five taking fifth.
