WILLIAM YOKLEY WINS FIFTH CONSECUTIVE GNCC CHAMPIONSHIP
William Yokley and his Coastal / Polaris / CST / Yoshimura /Yokley Racing Holz-built RZR 900 took the GNCC “XC1 Modified” UTV Championship for fifth consecutive year with Yokley’s teammate, Scott Kiger finishing the season in fourth. RZRs proved to be a dominant force in the class taking the top five spots for the season, including Yokley’s nephew, John Yokley, taking second in his Big Country Powersports/Yokley Racing RZR 900.
Yokley finished out the season at the Ironman with a fifth in the “XC1 Modified” class and fifth overall, after breaking a rear axle, but had enough series points to seal the championship. Kiger also had mechanical issues and had to be conservative with speed and finished in fourteenth.
“We would like to congratulate Yokley on his fifth championship,” said Donna Beadle, race team manager for Polaris. “The Yokley/Coastal Racing team has incredible dedication to the sport of side-by-side racing and the championship was, once again, well deserved.”
