Team UXC/Polaris Factory Racing grabbed the top two honors in the Pro 4x4 and overall this past Saturday in Odessa, New York at Round 6 of the Grand National Cross Country (GNCC) Series. Kevin Trantham #202 took the center of the podium with teammate Michael Swift #208 beside him in the number two spot.
“It was a great weekend for Polaris, Team UXC Racing and our sponsors. It feels great putting the Polaris Scrambler 850 EPS in the top two spots and continuing to show the off road world the amazing capabilities of this ATV,” stated Swift.
The Team UXC duo quickly moved to the front of the Pro 4x4 class after a mid pack start. Positions changed a few times throughout the race but the teammates made a pass on the class leader with a lap and a half to go. Once in the lead the #202 and #208 pushed each other to set a fast pace to maintain their 1-2 positions and cross the finish line with Trantham taking the win and Swift just behind him. The Polaris May 12, 2015 Scramblers crossed the finish line a full minute and 20 seconds before third place.
“Once again I had a really awesome race at the Tomahawk GNCC in New York. The Team UXC/Polaris Factory backed Scrambler was spot on for this new venue. Everything was working perfectly from the Maxxis tires to the Custom Axis suspension. The STM clutching was putting the power to the ground as I was able to pull off another overall win in the 4x4 Pro class. Thanks again to Team UXC and Factory Polaris Racing for all the help and support,” commented Trantham.
In the 40+ 4x4 line-up, Team UXC racer Don Higbee #640 came across the checkered with a strong 3rd place finish. Graham Widdicombe grabbed a 6th place finish in the 4x4 A-B class while Nic Synkers claimed a 5th place in the 4x4 C class.
