Newly crowned GNCC ATV Champ victorious at St. Clairsville Round 12 – GNCC ATV Series

St. Clairsville, Ohio - ITP Power Line Park (October 3-4, 2009) - Rockstar Makita Suzuki’s Chris Borich showed his true championship-winning colors this past weekend by winning round 12 of the GNCC ATV series at ITP Power Line Park in St. Clairsville, Ohio. Although he’d wrapped up the 2009 GNCC ATV Championship at the previous round, Borich didn’t lose his competitive edge. Quite the contrary – the newly crowned champion got stuck in a mud hole on lap one and required a towrope from fans to escape the bog. Unfortunately, the rope tangled in his rear axle and stayed put for the rest of the race. In spite of this, Borich rode a consistent and impressive race and gradually left his competitors behind. With this win, Borich has won seven races in a row and nine races overall this season. He is eagerly looking forward to the final round of the series later this month and hopes to pick up one more win to complete the already successful season.

Chris Borich:
“My Rockstar Makita Suzuki QuadRacer R450 worked great out there today and put me on the podium again – even though I got caught in the mud hole and, if it wasn’t for the fans helping me out, I would have been stuck there. I was a little worried about that rope getting wrapped around my axle, but it didn’t damage anything and I was still able to take the win. I’ve won seven rounds in a row now, and nine total for the year. It’s a pretty good feeling to have accomplished that. Although it feels really good to win nine races this season, I still want to win at the last round.”

Rockstar Makita Suzuki Factory Racing will race next at the final round of the GNCC ATV Series at the Klotz Ironman in Crawfordsville, Indiana, the weekend of, October 24-25, 2009.
