Swift gets first win of the Season
Minneapolis, April 30, 2015– Team UXC Racing would head to
Springville, Ind. for GNCC Racing’s Round 5, the Limestone 100 this
past weekend and leave with two wins for the Scrambler 850.
It would be Michael Swift’s day taking the 4×4 Pro Class and morning
overall on his Scrambler 850. Off the start, Team UXC teammates Kevin
Trantham and Swift quickly worked their way to the front of the class
just in what was set to be a wet and slick day of racing. Swift took
the lead around the 4 mile marker on lap one with Trantham close
behind. On the start of lap two, Swift managed to create a small gap
between him and his class which he was able to build on each lap.
Despite the rain which made the course more difficult, Swift was able
to hold his lead all the way to the checkered flag with 1 minute and
40 seconds to spare. The win would be Swift’s first of the season and
moved him into third place in the class standings for the year, with
Trantham, who finished fifth, sitting in second.
Off a third place finish last race, Team UXC Racing’s 4×4 Senior Racer
Don Higbee would also take the win on his Scrambler 850 for his first
win of the season. Higbee sits in third for the season in the class.
The next GNCC race is the Tomahawk, in Odessa, NY, May 9-10, and the
next UTV and Single Seat Race will be the Mountaineer, at Marvin’s
Mountain Top, in Masontown, West Virginia, May 23-24.
