ODESSA, NY, MAY 9-10, 2015
Team UXC/ Polaris Factory Racing grabbed the top two honors in the Pro 4×4 class and overall this past Saturday in Odessa, New York, at round six of the GNCC Grand National Cross Country Series. Kevin Trantham took the center of the podium, with his teammate Michael Swift beside him in the number-two spot.
“It was a great weekend for Polaris, Team UXC Racing and our sponsors,” stated Swift. “It feels great putting the Polaris Scrambler 850 EPS in the top two spots and continuing to show the off-road world the amazing capabilities of this ATV.”
The Team UXC duo quickly moved to the front of the Pro 4×4 class after a midpack start. Positions changed a few times throughout the race, but the teammates made a pass on the class leader with a lap and a half to go.
Once in the lead, the Trantham and Swift pushed each other to set a fast pace to maintain their first and second positions and cross the finish line with Trantham taking the win and Swift just behind him. The Polaris Scramblers crossed the finish line a full minute and 20 seconds before the third-place rider.
“Once again, I had a really awesome race at the Tomahawk GNCC in New York,” said Trantham. “The Team UXC/ Polaris Factory-backed Scrambler was spot-on for this new venue. Everything was working perfectly, from the Maxxis tires to the Custom Axis suspension. The STM clutching was putting the power to the ground, as I was able to pull off another overall win in the 4×4 Pro class. Thanks again to Team UXC and Factory Polaris Racing for all the help and support.”
In the Over 40 4×4 line-up, Team UXC racer Don Higbee came across the checkered flag with a strong third-place finish.
Graham Widdicombe grabbed a sixth-place finish in the 4×4 A-B class, while Nic Synkers claimed fifth place in the 4×4 C class.
