UNION, SC, APR. 11-12, 2015
The second round of UTV action took place at round four of the GNCC Grand National Cross Country Series in Union, South Carolina. GNCC introduced a brand-new race to the series this year for the single-seat UTV.
Team UXC-backed Polaris Sportsman Ace 570s driven by Marc Spataro #87 and Josh Copeland #451 took to the starting line at the Big Buck Farm. Spataro’s machine rocketed off the starting line, taking an early lead, Copeland holding a fifth-place position on the first lap.
It was an epic battle for the entire race, but Spataro was able to hold his lead until the checkered flag flew, taking the first-place position on the podium.
“Thanks to Team UXC/ Factory Polaris Racing and ROX Speed FX, I was able to experience my first-ever GNCC career podium,” stated Spataro. “My Polaris Ace took me to the checkered. It was not only fun and exciting but one of the most memorable races for me.”
Copeland worked his way around the competition to finish an impressive second place.
“I am pleased with how the day went,” said Copeland. “None of this would be possible without all the support of our sponsors.”
“I am very happy to see our two ROX Speed FX-backed Polaris Sportsman Ace 570s on the podium,” claimed Michael Swift, Team UXC race manager. “Everyone should check out ROX Speed FX for all their new products for the Ace.”
Look for Team UXC at round five in Springville, Indiana, on Saturday, April 25.
The single-seat UTVs will be back in action at round 7 in Masontown, West Virginia, on May 23.
