  • RT Pro’s Logan Gastel Finishes Top Ten in BITD Turbo UTV Championship

    RT Pro BITD Pahrump Nugget 250 Side by Side Report

    RT Pro’s Logan Gastel got a last-minute call from a teammate to enter the Pahrump Nugget 250 to help boost car count. With less than 24 hours to spare, Gastel took the start, which kept him ninth in the Best in the Desert Turbo Points Championship.

    184a0270

    “We didn’t initially plan to race in Pahrump due to the points,” said Gastel. “We had planned to take off that race and focus on building our new car for 2017. Unfortunately, Friday night we heard from our teammates that the car count was too low for them to get enough points for the championship. So we loaded up the car and headed to Pahrump. Unfortunately, we only made it to pit one.”

    184A0267

    Looking back on the season, Gastel continues to be impressed by his RT Pro suspension, chassis and steering components. Many of the parts are still being used, even after an entire season desert racing miles.

    “We have over 1,500 miles on our turbo car this year with most of the original stuff we started with,” said Gastel. “We changed some things because of revisions that Andy made. The steering components and everything else has worked flawless for us.

    “RT Pro has been great for us,” added Gastel. “To help those guys develop their long travel suspension and chassis components for the Can-Am Maverick has been a true honor for us. Working with Andy and RT Pro has been great. You would think being so far away and having to explain things over the phone that you wouldn’t get what you needed, but they’ve always over-performed.”

    184a0336

    Gastel has big plans for 2017 and looks to have one of the top cars in the Pro Turbo class. He’ll unveil a new Can-Am X3 at the season opener.

    “We definitely need a fresh start,” said Gastel. “We’ve signed a multi-year contract with Can-Am to race the X3 beginning next year. The car is super fast right out of the box and we’re looking forward to some great results.”

    Gastel and his new Can-Am X3 will be ready for action as BITD kicks off its 2017 season January 6-7 in Parker, AZ.

  • RT Pro’s Pratt Brothers, Krcelich and Henry Thrill at Ironman GNCC

    RT Pro’s GNCC Round 13 SXS Race Report

    RT Pro racers Joe Krcelich finished out the year with a second place finish in the GNCC XC2 Pro Sport UTV Class, and Marcus Pratt just missed a spot on the podium with a fourth place finish in the XC1 UTV class at the Ironman GNCC season finale in Crawfordsville, IN.

    184A7374

    Krcelich earned his second consecutive runner-up finish in XC2. With four podiums in six races this season, Krcelich finished second in GNCC XC2 UTV Points championship

    “The RT Pro stuff worked flawlessly today,” said Krcelich. “I couldn’t ask for anything better. The equipment has been spot on all year. It’s great stuff. We did a little better this year than last year. Everyone wants to win and the championship is the goal. But after having two bad races last season while leading the points, I changed my mindset. I tried to be a consistent top-three guy. I fell a little bit short, but I’m definitely better this year than last year.”

    9G3A1187

    Henry, who was in contention all season, was leading the XC2 race when a hub issue ended his day early. He ended up third in final points.

    “We had a good run, and the car was great,” said Henry. “We had just started putting some time on one and two, and we lost a hub in one of the fields. The RT Pro equipment was great. We should have had a better year, but what can you do?”

    9G3A1556

    In XC1, Mouse Pratt equaled his best finish of the season, a fourth. He said without the RT Pro high clearance A arms, he’d likely still be stuck in the mud.

    “The RT Pro stuff is awesome,” said Pratt. “Without those high clearance arms, I’d still be stuck in some of those creek bottoms. They would have had to drag me out. I love their stuff. We’ve had some bad luck this year, but today it held together and I can’t complain, ending the season with a fourth.”

    9G3A1197

    Marcus Pratt finished 11th in XC1. He said the RT Pro components helped him through a few driver errors during the event.

    “My RT Pro A arms held up perfect when I had a couple of little boo-boos, and they kept me from a DNF,” said Pratt. “We’ve had a couple of issues this season. Sometimes you get a cloud over your head during a racing season. We’ll keep our heads up and keep plugging.”

    With the season at its conclusion, GNCC series will celebrate its 2016 season November 25 during the season banquet in Morgantown, WV.

  • RT Pro’s Sam Yokley Clinches GNCC ACE Championship

    RT Pro’s Ironman GNCC Single Seat Race Report

    RT Pro’s Sam Yokley clinched the GNCC ACE Single Seat Championship with a second place finish at the Ironman Raceway in Crawfordsville, IN. Fellow RT Pro racer Jesi Stracham finished off the season with a fourth-place finish.

    184A6826

    Sam Yokley earned his second consecutive championship after coming into the event with just a one-point lead. He won three races this year and followed that up with two additional podiums. His RT Pro components helped him cope with the difficult course that featured ruts, trees, and a motocross course.

    184A6696

    “This was a great race and I made it through and won the championship,” said Yokley. “RT Pro helped me out a lot this year. They gave me great parts and kept me running competitively. Without the high clearance arms, you’ll catch rocks and stumps and just rip them off. We had some good racing this year.”

    184A6611

    Stracham, who is paralyzed from the waist down, ran an RT Pro-built Polaris Ace equipped with hand controls all season. Stracham finished fourth in points and earned two podiums during the season.

    184A6622

    “This is always my favorite race of the year, and it was a great time,” said Stracham. “RT Pro has been awesome for me over the years.”

    184A6710

  • RT Pro’s Joe Krcelich and John Henry Score Podiums at Powerline Park GNCC

    RT Pro’s GNCC Round 5 SXS Report

    RT Pro racers Joe Krcelich and John Henry continued their hard charge in points, finishing second and third at the GNCC XC2 Pro Stock UTV race at Powerline Park in St. Clairsville, OH. Sean Bogdan scored his best career finish of fourth in XC1 Pro, ahead of Marcus Pratt, who finished eighth.

    9g3a1253

    Krcelich and Henry are embroiled in a tight fight for second in points. The two came out of this event just two points apart with one race left in the season. Krcelich’s second-place finish equaled his best effort of the season. He overcame the slick conditions to net the runner-up slot.

    9g3a1607

    “I knew that both of the guys ahead of me in points were behind me,” said Krcelich. “John Henry and I are two points apart, so my goal is try to come out of the points in second. The track was really slick in the woods. The RT Pro stuff worked flawlessly. I have zero complaints.”

    Henry was frustrated by the one-line nature of the track. He beat and banged his way to third. He credited his RT Pro parts for keeping his ride in one piece,

    “I made it up to second going into the woods, but there were very few places to pass,” explained Henry. “I got aggressive toward the end, but we just ran out of time. I can’t be disappointed with third place. The RT Pro stuff held up great. We were really going at it and at one point I hit pretty hard. I slid into a tree and I thought that was it. I backed off and the car was perfectly fine. The car definitely took a beating.”

    Bogdan’s best career finish in XC1 came in a new Polaris that features RT Pro parts. He said his setup was perfect for conditions that started out slick and tacked up toward the end.

    “I was a little nervous with all of the rain,” said Bogdan. “Toward the afternoon, the sun came out, and it got tacky. I had the perfect setup and the perfect car for this race. RT Pro suspension was amazing. It soaked everything up. Having the right setup and the right parts were key this weekend.”

    The RT Pro brigade will finish out the GNCC season October 29-30 for the season finale at Ironman Raceway in Crawfordsville, OH.

  • RT Pro’s Sam Yokley Leads GNCC Points with Podium Finish

    RT Pro’s Powerline Park GNCC Single Seat Report

    RT Pro’s Sam Yokley maintains the points lead in the GNCC Single Seat points by finishing third at Powerline Park in St. Clairsville, OH. Jesi Stracham finished fifth in her RT Pro prepared Polaris Ace, and she is fourth in the points race.

    184a2823

    Yokley earned his fourth consecutive podium, which includes three-straight victories. He now leads the championship by just one point over Boynton.

    “It was really a go slow to finish fast day,” said Yokley. “I have to thank you to RT Pro for giving me the best suspension parts in the industry.”

    Stracham followed up her best GNCC finish ever in the last race to finish fifth here. She now sits fourth in points. She battled with difficulties all race to earn the top five. Stracham, who is paralyzed from the waist down, uses an Ace specially prepared with hand controls and built by RT Pro.

    9g3a9021

    “My legs became unbelted on the first lap and they were flopping around in the ACE,” said Stracham. “It took me quite awhile to get them belted back in. I was too far back to really make a charge to the front. I fought hard this year, and we’ll be ready for the next race. The ACE worked great, as always thanks to Andy and RT Pro.”

    Stracham is currently fourth in points, and just two points out of the top three, which will make for an exciting GNCC season finale with such a tight points battle in the class among a stacked field of competitors.

    Yokley and Stracham will be back in action as the GNCC hosts its season finale October 29-30 at Ironman Raceway in Crawfordsville, OH with Yokley going for the championship, and Stracham chasing after her first win.

  • RT Pro’s Jesi Stracham Third at GBC Heartland Challenge

    RT Pro Heartland Challenge Ace Report

    RT Pro (formerly Racer Tech) driver Jesi Stracham finished third in the GBC Heartland Challenge Ace single seat race in Carlisle, IA. Stracham, driving her specially built Polaris Ace equipped with hand controls, overcame a belt issue to record the podium finish.

    1C8C0041

    Stracham, who is paralyzed from the waist down, ran the special event to stay in shape for her full-time effort in the GNCC series. She was pleased to finish on the podium in the competitive endurance race.

    “This is really practice for me for GNCC because I’m still in the championship over there,” said Stracham. “I was really bummed after losing the belt. I had belt problems from the start. My check engine light came on early. When the belt came off, I thought the car was on fire, which was a scary moment. I pitted, got a new belt and I kept going.

    “As long as I finished and I’m healthy, that’s all the counts,” concluded Stracham.

    Stracham will be back in action after the GNCC summer break October 1-2 at Powerline Park in St. Clairsville, OH.

  • RT Pro’s Logan Gastel Takes Ninth at Tough BITD Vegas to Reno

    RT Pro Best in the Desert Race Report

    While the final results may not show it, RT Pro (formerly Racer Tech) driver Logan Gastel overcame serious setbacks to finish ninth in the Best in the Desert Vegas to Reno UTV Turbo race.

    CD0A6448

    Gastel, who had moved from a 23rd-place start to fifth in the field on day one, hit a hole on day two and broke a bolt in his upper suspension, losing hours doing repairs. In the end, and using his inner MacGyver, Gastel rebounded to finish ninth in class and just 2.5 hours behind the overall winner in the two-day race.

    “Each race we seem to be getting closer, but we’ve had some bad luck,” said Gastel. “I thought this was going to be our first win, but we pushed hard and the desert pushed back harder. Day two was actually great up until mile 500 when he hit a G-out a little harder than we should have and broke a bolt in the front upper control arm.”

    When others might have just given up, Gastel and his co-driver set about to repair the car, despite losing many of the front-end components in the crash. Midway through the repair, his jack broke, so he improvised and used boulders to hold the car up.

    “We ended up taking the whole car apart to get it repaired,” said Gastel. “When that bolt broke, we lost most of the essential hardware we needed to put the front end together. We bolted the upper spindle onto the A-arm with a half-inch bolt, a bunch of washers and some baling wire. We kept pushing forward, got some fresh parts, and kept moving. We were dead last in all the UTVs and ended up ninth. I didn’t want to give up and we made it back to the finish line before dark.”

    Gastel said the combination of his RT Pro suspension components, Fox’s new internal bypass shocks and ITP tires gave him the ground clearance he needed to clear the course’s many ruts and deep silt beds.

    “The RT Pro stuff has worked for us all season long,” said Gastel. “It’s crucial in these type of races to have that ground clearance. We got into some really deep ruts and silt beds, and the RT Pro suspension components kept us off the belly pan. We also switched to the new 31-inch tires from ITP. The total package is beginning to work.

    “This is our third race on the new Fox internal bypass shocks and every race I get more impressed,” added Gastel. “They eat up everything we throw at them. They don’t have quit. The faster you go, they seem to handle better.”

    Gastel will return to action during the Bluewater Desert Challenge in Parker, AZ on October 6-9 where is hungry for that first victory.

    BBQ_1199

    Yokley’s third straight victory wasn’t an easy one. After rolling his Polaris ACE on the third lap, he got back upright and then held off a charging Stracham to win. He now holds two-point lead going into the next race in October.

    “I had a decent start, but I had a mishap on the motocross track,” said Yokley. “I got back in it, kept my head straight and finished the race. I just knew I had to finish the race and I pulled off the win. Jesi gave me a run for my money this weekend. I thought she was going to get me. We battled the at the end of race, and it was a lot of fun.

    “The RT Pro stuff worked perfectly, as always,” added Yokley. “It cleared everything and helped me get through the woods. I’m hoping the keep the points lead for the rest of the season. I’ll keep my head down and keep moving.”

    Stracham dogged Yokley throughout the race and finished career-best second, earning her second podium of the season. She now sits third in points, just eight points out of the lead.

    “I got behind Sam on the second to last lap, and then battled him on the final laps,” said Stracham. “I literally finished .82 of a second behind him. It was a blast. That was most fun I’ve had all year. I’m looking forward to coming back in the fall and finishing this out. RT Pro has put together a great program for me. They make sure the car is perfect for every round.”

    Boynton completed the sweep for RT Pro. He has finished on the podium in every race this season and sits second in the championship.

    “I’m very happy with the finish,” said Boynton. “I have RT Pro’s rollcage, steering quickener, and their front and rear bumpers. They’ve gotten me to where I am this season.”

    The trio will take the long GNCC break before returning to action in the fall at Powerline Park in St. Clairsville, OH October 1-2.
