ATV - GNCC Woods May 10-11, 2014 | Hurricane Mills, TN Results

In a superheated contest, AmPro/Moto-Xperts/Maxxis/Fox Yamaha YFZ450R-mounted Walker Fowler scored his first XC1 Pro class win of the 2013 GNCC ATV season in Springville, Ind. on Saturday, May 18. Following Fowler’s move this year to the AmPro Yamaha team guided by Randy Hawkins, the win was a powerful validation of AmPro’s ability to build a championship-contending team in ATV racing as well as off-road motorcycle racing. Further adding to Yamaha’s off-road laurels for the weekend, Jedediah Haines rode his Obermeyer/Raines Racing WR450F to a win in the AMA Eastern Hare Scrambles in Valley View, Penn. on Saturday, and then backed it up with a GNCC XC2 Pro Lites podium finish aboard a YZ250F on Sunday.

After scoring three podiums in the first five races of the season, AmPro Yamaha’s Fowler was primed and ready to grab a victory in Indiana. However it was a fellow YFZ racer, Waynesburg Yamaha-backed Jeffrey Pickens, who grabbed the holeshot, leading for a short while before the field settled in. Then a motivated Fowler passed Chris Bithell for the lead by the end of the first lap, although his rival hotly pursued him for the duration of the event. Fowler held a narrow 1.5-second advantage after the first of four laps, 2.8 seconds by the midway point, and a precious 4.1 seconds as the pair started the final lap of the two-hour race.

Fowler threw everything he had into this last half-hour of racing, and was finally able to stretch out a 5.6-second lead at the checkers. So fast was Fowler on his YFZ that the next nearest competitor, points leader Chris Borich, was nearly a half-minute behind in third. “The AmPro team has been working very hard to get this first ATV win and it comes at a pivotal time in the series,” explained Yamaha off-road racing coordinator Donnie Luce. “Overall it’s a good start, and we look forward to adding a few more wins to the YFZ’s resume in 2013.”
