Minneapolis, Minn., Oct. 23, 2012 – William Yokley and his National Guard / Polaris / Coastal / Yoshimura / DragonFire /Yokley Racing RZR XP 900 took the GNCC “Open Modified” UTV Championship for fourth consecutive year with Yokley’s teammate, Scott Kiger in his National Guard / Polaris / Coastal / Yoshimura / Yokley Racing RZR XP 900 taking second. RZRs proved to be a dominant force in the class taking the top five spots for the season.
The last UTV race of the season, The Amsoil Ironman, saw three RZRs on the podium for the “Open Modified” class with Yokley taking top honors. Teammate, Kiger, had an unfortunate incident where a tree became lodged between his wheel and frame leaving him in last after the first lap. Kiger was able to pick cars off one-by-one for the remainder of the race to finish fourth and seal second place for the year.
“We would like to congratulate William and Scott on another awesome GNCC side-by-side racing season,” said Donna Beadle, race team manager for Polaris Racing. “They made it an exciting season and once again, brought home the championship.”
