RT Pro’s Sam Yokely won his third consecutive GNCC Single Seat race at the John Penton in Milfield, OH. He led a sweep of the podium by RT Pro equipped Polaris ACEs, ahead of Jesi Stracham and Robert Boynton.
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.
