Minneapolis, Minn., Oct. 25, 2011 – William Yokley and his National Guard Polaris DragonFire Yokley Racing RANGER RZR XP 900 took the GNCC “Open Modified” UTV Championship for third consecutive year. RANGER RZRs proved to be a dominant force in the class with Team Hendershot finishing second with their RANGER RZR XP 900 and Yokley’s teammate, Scott Kiger ending the year in third place.
“We would like to congratulate William and Scott on an awesome GNCC side-by-side racing season,” said Donna Beadle, race team manager for Polaris Racing. “Both have worked very hard this season preparing a brand-new unit and the outcome is well-deserved.”
The last UTV race of the season, The Ironman, saw three RANGER RZRs, once again, on the podium for the “Open Modified” class. Team Hendershot would take the checkered flag with Yokley in second and Kiger in third.
Yokley and Kiger will race the season finale of the WORCS on Nov. 12, at Speed World MX in Surprise, Arizona. Yokley is leading the points and with a good finish, can wrap up the WORCS National Championship. Kiger is in the top seven in points, and has a chance to move up in the final standings.
