RT Pro’s Camp Coker GNCC Single Seat Race Report
RT Pro’s Sam Yokley won his second consecutive GNCC Single Seat SXS race at Camp Coker MX in Society Hill, SC. The win moves him into a mathematical tie for first in points. Fellow RT Pro driver Christopher Hale netted a season-topping fourth-place finish, while Jesi Stracham was fifth.
Yokley was third off the start and then took the lead on the first lap in the track’s motocross section. From there he wasn’t seriously challenged.
“The car felt really good today,” said Yokley. “The RT Pro components cleared everything. It’s been great so far and I hope the rest of the season goes just as smooth. The track had a little bit of everything. It had the tight technical woods sections and the wide-open motocross sections. It was a lot of fun.”
Stracham, fresh off her first Single Seat podium, drove her specially built Polaris to her second top-five finish of the season and moves to fourth in points. Stracham is paralyzed from the waist down and drives a RT Pro machine specially fitted with hand controls.
“To run in the top five is always great,” said Stracham. “The track was unbelievable. It had every different surface: roots, rocks, dark mud, sand; it had everything. My RT Pro Polaris ACE just hooked up. I had the advantage with my hand controls. We’re really getting it dialed in.
“This season has been phenomenal,” added Stracham. “Our goal was to get this car on the box and we did that. Andy from RT Pro really got my program together this year. We’re out there having a blast.”
RT Pro’s Christopher Hale recorded a season best fourth place finish less than three seconds behind Robert Boynton claiming the final spot on the podium. Boynton is also running RT Pro components on his Polaris ACE, and he is currently tied for the points lead with Sam Yokley heading into the second half of the season.
Yokley, Hale and Stracham will be back up front in the GNCC John Penton May 28-29 at Sunday Creek Raceway in Millfield, OH.
