Warnert Racing wraps up season ATV championships with a clean sweep!
Warnert Racng’s riders set out this season with one goal, sweep the ATV class championships. that may have been a lofty goal but determination, skill and excellent riding has made the goal a reality. Richard Cecco finalized the deal by winning the 4x4 Open Class at this weekends event, marking Warnert Racing as truly the dominate force in the 4x4 classes.
Round #12 of the Can Am GNCC Series was held in St. Clairsville Ohio at the well known Powerline Park facility. Eleven miles of rocks, ruts, tree's and DUST awaited the nearly 400 riders. The extreme dry conditions in the region would set up one of the most dust filled events of recent memory. Visibility would be a huge factor during the race and when piloting a machine as big and fast as Warnert Racing Can-Am's, seeing the track ahead is paramount to not only winning, but for survival!
Entering this round, Richard Cecco had to accomplish one thing to secure the championship, and that was finish ahead of fellow Can Am racer Bryan Buckhannon. Cecco would not lead at the start but soon made the passes needed to overtake the lead. Cecco's Can Am was but a yellow blur through the trees as he expertly handled everything the course threw at him. With dust so bad in many sections that visibility was near zero, Cecco plowed ahead and never looked back, crossing the finish line ahead of Buckhannon and joined his Warnert Racing Teammates making it a sweep of the 4x4 class championships!
Michael Swift could have taken it easy on the competition this round as he had wrapped up a stellar year and had secured the class championship at round #11.Unfortunatley for the competition, Swift is a winner and won't back off the throttle until the checkered flag is out! Swift battled early on to take the lead and never looked back, marking his 10th class win of the 2007 season.
Cliffton Beasley as well had wrapped up his class championship coming into this round of racing. Beasley wasn't handing out sympathy as he laid the smack down for the 9th time this season by taking the class win yet again! With dust billowing from behind his screaming Can Am, the competition wasn't even an issue as he rolled to the win. Beasley finished with over 5 minutes to spare as he did his part for another Warnert Racing sweep!
The series heads to the final round that will be held in Crawfordsville, Indiana on October 27th. Warnert Racing will be ready once again to do what we have been doing all season....dominate! With the course spanning 14 miles of Indiana countryside, and well known for getting nasty, Warnert Racing takes aim at another chance to prove we are the force to be reckoned with when it comes down to cross country racing!
