Yamalube Weekend RecapTuesday, November 6, 2012 | 12:55 PM
Aboard his GYTR, Yamalube AmPro Yamaha YZ450F, Paul Whibley claimed the 2012 GNCC XC1 Pro Motorcycle championship at Loretta Lynn’s Ranch in Hurricane Mills, Tennessee on the weekend. Whibley did it in a most convincing manner, leading the three hour race wire to wire. Going into the dramatic final round one point down, Whibley blasted to the holeshot and there on in had the race handled, winning by an incredible two minutes. Team mate Jordon Ashburn also riding a GYTR Yamalube AmPro Yamaha YZ450F slotted into to second place behind Whibley after the start and ended the day on the podium.
Also aboard her GYTR, Yamalube Yamaha YFZ450R, nine times and newly crowned 2012 GNCC ATV Champion in the women’s class, Traci Cecco put the icing on the cake by winning the final round. Making the day even better for Yamalube and GYTR, Yamaha riders Taylor Kiser and Walker Fowler finished first and second in the last XC2 Pro Am ATV race of the season, securing second and third in the 2012 Championship.
