The rain moved in during the start of the morning race and the stage was set for a grueling two hour long mud fest. “The slick mud and deep ruts created an environment that heavily favored our Warnert Racing prepped Can Am Outlander racing machines,” said Levi Michel, Warnert Race Manager. “Our K&N Engineering air filters kept us running, we didn’t notice any power loss at all. We get better throttle response all the way through every race.”

Clifton Beasley battled with Can-Am’s Jerime Dudding for the first two laps, but by the third lap Beasley took over the lead in his 4x4 Lites racer and pulled away from Dudding. Beasley won the race with over four minutes to spare. The win marked Beasley’s 8th of the season as he wraps up the 4x4 Lites Championship for Warnert Racing. There are three races remaining on the schedule, Beasley will be back in full force for the remaining races despite winning the championship.

4x4 Limited racer Michael Swift looked as if he was on his way to his 9th win of the season. He extended his lead to six minutes over second place, but the brutal conditions brought Swift to a stop for the first time this season in the final laps. Swift finished the race in 7th place. Swift is the 4x4 Limited Champion for Warnert Racing securing the title with his overall points from Somerset two weeks ago.

In the 4x4 Open class Rick Cecco secured the win for the Warnert Racing CanAm Team as he set a blazing pace on his Outlander 800. With each passing lap, Cecco added another minute to his lead and finished just under five minutes ahead of Bryan Buckhannon.

“After the races, our K&N filters were wet and muddy,” said Michel. “The dirt was so extreme, but K&N kept us running. We like having a filter we can clean.” The GNCC series heads to Yadkinville, North Carolina for Round 11 on September 29th.
