CAN-AM DS 450 RACERS MCGILL AND BITHELL TAKE TOP TWO SPOTS AT STEELE CREEK GNCC
Bob Boop
Warnert Racing / Can-Am DS 450 rider Adam McGill made a hard charge on the fifth and final lap to take the afternoon overall and the XC1 Pro class win. The Steele Creek GNCC course was rough by the end of the day, but that didn't prevent him from making his move to get around teammate Chris Bithell who took second overall. This is McGill's first win on the Can-Am DS 450, and the first afternoon overall for the machine in 2011. The podium finishes put Bithell in second for the championship battle and McGill in third.


"Adam and Chris put on a great battle on the final lap," said Jimmie O'Dell, Race Manager, Can-Am. "I am extremely proud of these two racers, along with the entire Warnert Racing crew who have worked very hard to get the DS 450 to where it was today: on the top two spots of the podium."

 

The morning race also saw a Can-Am rider on the podium. Can-Am X-Team racer Michael Swift took third overall and won the 4x4 Open class and stayed atop the class points ahead of fellow X-Team racer Bryan Buckhannon, who finished third in the class. Both riders race the Can-Am Outlander 800R X xc. The 4x4 Open podium sweep was completed by Outlander 800R XT rider, Rick Cecco, who finished second.

X-Team racer Kevin Trantham continued his unbeaten streak in the 4x4 Lites class on his Outlander 500 XT, while Forrest Whorton also remained unbeaten in the 4x4 Super Senior (45+) class on his Outlander 800R X xc. Racing his Can-Am Renegade 800R X xc, Cliff Beasley remains three for three in the U2 class as he won this weekend.

Racer Quotes:

“I am so happy to take a win for our team. I really have to thank Can-Am and everyone who has helped me get to this point. I just tried to stay focused and keep my head down and when I saw Borich fall back, I pushed even harder.” – Adam McGill

“I’m glad to be on the podium again. Everything went really well today and it’s great that out team topped the podium.” – Chris Bithell

 

Round four of the 2011 GNCC series will be at the Big Buck GNCC near Union, South Carolina on April 9. This will also be a side-by-side vehicle race featuring the Can-Am Commander line of side-by-sides.
