Can-Am Warnert Racing GNCC Team Claims Four Wins at The General
Round two of the 2009 GNCC series was a huge success for the Can-Am Warnert team with Michael Swift, Cliff Beasley, Bryan Buckhannon and Rick Cecco all taking their class wins and all landing in the top ten overall for the morning classes

The team was very happy to get back to the tree lined trails of Washington, GA and their enthusiasm showed. Rick Cecco took the holeshot in the U2 class, but dropped to third place during the first lap, but he was not about to settle for anything less than the win. By the middle of the six lap race, Cecco took the lead and dominated all the way to the checkered flag. “I felt good out there and the Can-Am was working great,” said Cecco excitedly about his first win of the season. Cecco finished with a time of 2:18:10, which landed him in the number seven spot overall.
Bryan Buckhannon came off the line in second place behind fellow Can-Am racer Scott Kilby, but by the 4th turn, Buckhannon claimed the lead and checked out. “It was a pretty uneventful race for me. I took the lead early on and just rode my own race,” said Buckhannon. Bryan finished with almost a five minute lead over his competition with a time of 2:19:46 and took 8th overall for the morning classes.
Michael Swift, who is used to being at the front of the 4x4 Limited class, had a few issues early in the race after hitting a tree in the first lap. “I wasn’t sure if I should pit to have the bike fixed or not but I decided to just keep going. I hit a few more trees along the way because the steering was a little tweaked, but the bike held up just fine and I took the lead and the win,” said Michael, who finished 9th overall with a time of 2:21:46.
Teammate Cliff Beasley has every intension of defending his championship title. Cliff had a fantastic run, grabbing the holeshot in the 4x4 Lites class and checking out on the rest of the competition. Beasley finished an impressive 7 minutes ahead of second place with a time of 2:21:48 and claimed 10th overall.
In the XC1 Pro class Chris Bithell appeared to be off to a great start and was on track to take his first win of the season as he took the lead in the second lap, but unfortunately for Bithell, he ran out of gas in the final lap, but still finished in 13th place.
Round number three of the 2009 GNCC series will see the Can-Am Warnert Racing team travel to Morganton, North Carolina on March 21-22 where the team members hope to once again dominate in their classes and take home multiple wins.
