A CST prototype tire made a spectacular debut when William Yokley rode it to victory at Round 5 of the GNCC series. The race, which featured the first use of CST’s new Behemoth model in competition, was held October 12 in St. Clairsville, Ohio.
Yokley said that the Behemoth gave him what he needed in slick conditions: “The tires really performed well, and I had total confidence in them the whole race. They hooked up great in the slick corners. I felt in complete control while sliding, and the tires performed great at high speeds.”
The victory, the third for the Polaris National Guard Team in the season’s five races to date, gave the team the lead in the series’ points race. After five rounds, Yokley has racked up 116 points in the XC1 Modified class. The Behemoth will be available to consumers in the coming months. Yokley’s early-season success came using the CST Clincher side-by-side tire, which is currently available for purchase at local powersports shops or online retailers.
CST congratulates William Yokley on his victory and wishes him the best at Round 6, scheduled for October 26-27 in Crawfordsville, Indiana.
