BREA, CA (March 7, 2011) – Rockstar Makita Suzuki’s Chris Borich used a strong final-lap push to win the opening round of the 2011 ATV Grand National Cross Series on Sunday at the Westgate River Ranch GNCC at the Westgate River Ranch Resort near River Ranch, FL.

As he often does, Borich, the reigning ATV XC1 champion, positioned himself within striking distance of the leaders during the first half of the race. He then used the awesome power of his Suzuki QuadRacer R450 to pick up the pace on the final lap to power past the competition on the rough and sandy Florida course.

“This is a good win for us,” said Borich. “We got the lead on the last lap and I put the hammer down on my Suzuki and tried to pull a gap. I can’t thank my Rockstar Makita Suzuki team enough. For sure, it was a team effort and a good win. This was a tough race and we got out of here without any mishaps, so it shouldn’t be a problem to get ready for Georgia.”

Borich and his Rockstar Makita Suzuki team’s next event is Saturday, March 12th, at The Maxxis General GNCC at Aonia Pass MX in Washington, GA.
