K&N air filters sponsored Team UXC/Polaris Factory Racing rider Michael Swift won the Pro 4x4 class and the overall win out of 260 riders at round 7 of the Grand National Cross Country (GNCC) Series in Masontown, Virginia. Mike Swift and fellow UXC/Polaris Factory Racing rider Kevin Trantham started the Pro 4x4 race 4th and 5th off the line heading into the woods for a two hour battle. Swift worked his way into the 2nd place position by mid race, while #202 Kevin Trantham encountered a radiator problem after passing through a rock section.

Starting the 3rd lap of GNCC round 7, K&N filters supported Pro 4x4 racer Mike Swift hit a tree stump hidden in a rock section causing him to fall back into 4th place. However, just before the start of the last lap, Swift made a charge to close the gap and catch the leaders. By mile marker three Swift was able to make a pass on the leader and take over the Pro 4x4 class lead aboard the K&N equipped Polaris Scrambler 850. Swift was able to hold the lead and put over a 20 second gap between him and 2nd place, giving the K&N sponsored Polaris Factory Racing Team another Pro Class Victory.

“What a day! My Polaris Scrambler 850 worked excellent and took the punishment through the rocks and allowed me to make a comeback for another win. I am so proud of our team and thankful for all the products our sponsors build,” stated Swift. K&N air filters supported Team UXC rider Don Higbee finished with another strong podium taking 3rd in the 40+ 4x4 class. Nic Snyckers also brought home a podium finish with a 3rd place in the 4x4 C class.
