Wood Wins GNCC Round 2 4X4 Lites ATV for KYMCO

Holeshot Good, Mud Hole Bad: Wood Wins Florida GNCC 4X4 Lites ATV for KYMCO

For immediate release: March 15, 2017

Spartanburg, South Carolina: At Round 2 of the 2017 Amsoil GNCC Racing series, at the Wild Boar event in Palatka, Florida, racer Justin Wood racked up win number two in the 4X4 Lites ATV class. With two wins in two races Wood has extended his lead and set the momentum for the moment or maybe for the season, from the woods of South Carolina to the sandy whoops of Florida.

Right from the race’s start Wood’s day went from awesome to unawesome and then back to awesome again, as he tested the differences in types of holes on the course. Wood said, “I got the holeshot then got buried in a mud hole up to the seat. The only one around me was my good buddy “Gator” Adam McGill. He helped me out but the left footboard was broken in the process and the battery wires damaged. This put us in last place. We put on a charge and got back to the top, only to then find that the course was badly marked, setting us back about a half mile.”

Wood continued; “The charge was on again after we pitted and we soon took the lead for our second win in a row. The track was really whooped-out and tough. We are now looking forward to Georgia. I would like to thank my sponsors for putting together one heck of a program for us, and an awesome bike: KYMCO USA, CST Tires, DW Rims, Motorex, Fastt Flexx, Rox Speed FX, Golding Clutches, Fly Racing, MZM, Axis Shocks, Tireblocks, Spider Graphics, Vanilla Gorilla, McGill Mafia, GSE Performance, Kenny Vincent, The Sleep Temple, and Vigilant Vet Racing.”

The next Amsoil GNCC Racing event is the Maxxis Cannonball in Sparta, Georgia, March 25-26. Can Justin Wood go three for three? Is the dirt in Sparta red?
