WILLIAM YOKLEY TAKES GNCC UTV RACE OPENER


The General, in Washington, Ga. marks the start of the UTV racing season for GNCC Racing. William Yokley is back to defend his No. 1 spot in his Polaris / Coastal / CST / National Guard / Yoshimura / Yokley Racing RZR XP 900 as is Yokley’s teammate, Scott Kiger, who finished second last year, in his RZR XP 900.

The General features a shorter-than-normal track with technical wood sections and open fields. The new dead-engine start hindered Yokley as his car didn’t immediately fire, leaving him last. Kiger, on-the-other-hand, had a great start and ran most of the race up front. Yokley was able to work his way through traffic and made a pass for the lead about a mile from the finish. Kiger finished fourth.

The next GNCC UTV Race is Big Buck, in Union, SC, on April 20.

Yokley Racing is sponsored by Polaris Industries, Coastal Racing, CST, Army National Guard, Yoshimura, Holz Racing Products, OMF, Walker Evans, Fluidyne, Beard Seats, Tireballs, SustainU and Big Country Powersports.
