2014 GNCC – Round 3
Morganton, NC ~ If you weren’t in attendance at this years FMF Steele Creek then surely you must have heard by now.  For those of you who were with us in the mountains of North Carolina, I bet you’re still cleaning the mud from your machine, your truck, your clothes, trailer, gear… get the point.  A staple on the GNCC circuit, this track experienced heavy rains for just about the entire day making it one of the muddiest races to date.  When it comes to the riders, it’s all about avoiding bottlenecks, not getting stuck, and choosing the smart lines.
We’ll start off on a high note in the morning race with Silver Masters 55+ rider Donnie Pruett taking home a 1st place finish for the day.  Even though Donnie was a little speechless when trying to describe the track conditions to our afternoon riders, I think he had a smile on his face.  Going down an age bracket, we find 35+C rider Jason Gautier sitting under an umbrella at the start line.  After a difficult start, Jason managed to slosh his way into the 6th position.  Suzuki rider Daniel Gwinn continues to climb the ladder in the 16-18C class by taking home a 7th place trophy.  Keep a close eye on Daniel as he continues to work hard and improve his riding with every race.  Wrapping things up in the morning we have Sport 15+ rider Colton White.  Unfortunately, a starter issue left Colton at the holeshot and unable to complete a lap.  Disappointing to say the least, but if you take a look at the points standings in his class you’ll notice that the top 4 riders have a DNF on their record!  Things have a funny way of working themselves out.
