BRP Racers take ATV gncc wins in Pennsylvania
Can-Am Outlander Takes Second Overall in Morning ATV Race; Buckhannon Injured
Staff

The Mountain Ridge GNCC near Somerset, PA, was a race of mixed emotions for the Can-Am™ ATV racers. In the morning, Team Warnert Racing / Can-Am's Michael Swift mounted an impressive come-from-behind victory after getting caught up in a first-turn incident. He took the 4x4 Limited class win aboard his Can-Am Outlander™ 800R EFI and was second overall on the morning podium. However, not all news was positive for Can-Am. Swift's teammate, Bryan Buckhannon, was well out in front leading his class, when he suffered a brutal end-over-end crash. He was taken away from the track with a broken leg – ending his perfect season and potentially threatening his pursuit of a second-straight GNCC championship.

“The positive weekend results were definitely overshadowed by Bryan's injury,” says Jimmie O'Dell, Racing Manager for Can-Am ATVs at BRP. “Right now it is unknown when he will be able to get back on his Outlander, but he is shooting for a comeback after the summer break. We will have to see what his doctor says, but Bryan is staying extremely positive right now."

Rounding out the morning session results was Can-Am X-Team racer Scott Kilby who took the 4x4 Open-class win on his Outlander 800R EFI. Racing his Outlander 500 EFI to the 4x4 Lites class win was Can-Am rider Kevin Trantham. In the Women's class, Can-Am X-Team racer Lexie Coulter took second in the class aboard her DS 450™ EFI ATV. Warnert's Rick Cecco held on to the U2 class championship lead by finishing second aboard his Renegade™ 800R EFI. In the afternoon, Warnert Racing's Chris Bithell was racing up front with the lead pack in second place when he experienced a front-shock failure on his DS 450. He pitted, had the shock replaced, and fought back to 11th place.

The next GNCC race is the John Penton GNCC near Millfield, OH on June 6. The next AMA ATV Motocross race is Steel City this weekend and the next ITP Quadcross race is also this weekend.
