Friday, June 08th, 2018
Millfield, Ohio - June 8, 2018 - The John Penton race in Millfield, OH has always been a favorite stop on the GNCC tour among fans and racers alike for its varied track conditions and unpredictable weather. GBC Motorsports was trackside for Round 7, as racers settled in to their starting positions for what would prove to be a day filled with intense racing and down-to-the-wire battles.
Walker Fowler #001 - XC1 Pro ATV
The competition was intense on the track, as fans sat in anticipation of the day’s races and the return of Walker Fowler. Fowler sat cool and confident amid the pack of hungry competitors, looking to redeem himself after a disappointing round by securing another victory in the 2018 race season. At the start of the XC1 race, it was Fowler who grabbed the Wiseco Holeshot in spectacular fashion for the crowd of screaming fans in his home state of Ohio. Fowler maintained his dominance throughout the 2-hour event, keeping a comfortable gap between himself and the pack for the duration of the race. Fowler crossed the checkered flag with his hand held high, marking his 4th overall win of the year. Fowler remains atop the XC1 class with 175 points, and shows no signs of fatigue as we head into Round 8 of the series. Congratulations on the victory! Walker Fowler is a GBC Motorsports sponsored racer and rides on XC-Master and Ground Buster 3 performance tires.
Traci Pickens #715 - WXC ATV
Traci Pickens has been an unstoppable force thus far in the 2018 GNCC series, with a firm grip on the WXC class championship points lead. As the race blasted into action, it was Pickens and Katelyn Osburn who would battle for placement under the skies of Millfield, Ohio. In a bold display of wits and determination, Pickens navigated the muddy track at John Penton as only a seasoned champion could execute. After 5 laps and 2 hours of cat and mouse, Pickens completed the race 1st in class, with the rebel Katelyn Osburn close on her heels in 2nd. The win marks Traci’s 5th in the 7 races so far in the 2018 season. As we head into Round 8 of the season, it’ll be interesting to see what tactics Pickens will deploy in the ongoing GNCC wars.

Landon Wolfe #006 - 4x4 Pro ATV
GBC Motorsports’ own Landon Wolfe has been having an outstanding race season thus far and continues to improve with each race. At Round 7 of the series we saw just how talented and dangerous Wolfe can be when in race mode. Featuring a stacked roster full of potential champions and breakout racers, the 4x4 Pro ATV class has no shortage of hungry competitors looking for a taste of glory in the GNCC. Wolfe maintained his focused and level head as he traversed the tight turns and muddy terrain of Sunday Creek raceway. Ending Round 7 with a 2nd in class and 2nd overall, Wolfe found his 6th podium finish of the year. As the season progresses and the level of competition increases, we look forward to watching Wolfe’s strategy to continuing his unrelenting pace in the 2018 GNCC season.
