ROCKSTAR MAKITA SUZUKI'S BORICH & SUZUKI CELEBRATE FIRST-EVER GNCC ATV CHAMPIONSHIP
Rockstar Makita Suzuki's Borich also takes the win at Yadkinville
Round 11 – GNCC ATV Series
Yadkinville, North Carolina
Yadkin Valley Stomp
September 26-27, 2009
Rockstar Makita Suzuki’s Chris Borich gave Suzuki its first-ever GNCC ATV Championship this past weekend when the young rider clinched his own first-ever GNCC ATV Championship at the Yadkin Valley Stomp in Yadkinville, North Carolina. With two rounds remaining in the series, Borich clinched the title by riding an impressive race on his Rockstar Makita Suzuki QuadRacer R450 in spite of the wet and slippery red clay track conditions. Borich has led the points for most of the 2009 season and this win is his sixth consecutive victory this year as well as his eighth total win this year. Additionally, Suzuki’s winning this championship marks the first time in nine years that a new manufacturer has won this particular title.
“I was feeling pretty pumped. It was a really up-and-down race. I started out in about seventh or eighth, and moved up to first in the third lap and just kind of checked out from there on the Rockstar Makita Suzuki QuadRacer R450. Yadkinville is a really tight track and passing is limited, so I just started picking people off one by one. The track was really muddy, but it was fun to get back out in the woods. It feels really good to take my first championship, but it still hasn’t quite sunk in yet. Even though I have the championship wrapped up, I still plan on going out there and winning the last two rounds. It would be really awesome to end the season with 10 wins. I have to thank the Rockstar Makita Suzuki team and everyone who’s been involved with my program this year.”
Rockstar Makita Suzuki Factory Racing will race next at ITP Power Line Park in St. Clairsville, Ohio, the weekend of, October 3-4, 2009.
