Round six of the 2012 GNCC Series was good for the UXC Racing team, as Cliff Beasley remained undefeated in the U2 class, while Michael Swift finished in second place in the 4×4 Open class.
Round six was held at another new location – the second new track of the season. The team enjoyed the variety of the course at the Limestone 100 in Springville, Indiana, which was a faster track with well-worn trails. Good weather and good track conditions helped the team to finish well.
UXC Racing’s Cliff Beasley was in second off the start and then took over the lead on lap two. Beasley charged his way through the course and won his class by more than 3.5 minutes and also finished in the top five overall for the morning classes. Beasley has a firm grip on the points lead in his class and could easily wrap up the championship early if all goes well over the next couple of rounds.
“It’s been a really good season for me so far, and I can’t thank our sponsors enough for everything they do for us,” said Beasley.
Michael Swift has been a front-runner in the highly competitive 4×4 Open class. He battled his way into the lead at round five. Unfortunately, his lead was taken away due to a slight mechanical issue on the final lap. Fortunately, Swift had a big enough lead over most of his class that he was still able to cross the finish line in second place.
“We had a couple of setbacks, but I am going to stay positive and stay focused and just go out there and do my best for our sponsors,” said Swift, who is currently ranked second in his class points.
Round number seven will see the 2012 GNCC Series head to Marvin’s Mountain Top in Masontown, West Virginia, for the Mountaineer Run on May26, where the team will face the challenges of yet another new course.
