Rockstar Makita Suzuki’s Chris Borich added to his already massive lead in the 2011 ATV GNCC series point standings with a solid second-place podium finish aboard his Makita Tools tuned Suzuki QuadRacer R450 at the Indy 100 GNCC, round six of the 2011 ATV Grand National Cross Country series, in Gosport, IN. 

The Rockstar Makita Suzuki rider started the race in fifth place and then steadily worked his Suzuki into second as a driving rainstorm moved in overhead, turning the red Indiana farmland into slime.  

“I was sitting back in fifth or sixth after the start, just taking my time, but it was pretty hard to pass out there,” said Borich. “Every time I would get to the front, I would get hung up or hit a little bottleneck and drop back to second or third, or to third or fourth. We worked up to second again at the two-lap board and started charging; my dad was giving me pit boards and we were closing in – 40 seconds, 30 seconds. I came into the pits that last time and got fresh goggles and came around and got the checkers.” 

“My Rockstar Makita Suzuki QuadRacer R450 ran great.  I felt good and we were charging hard, but we just ran out of time,” added Borich. “We’ll come back strong in two weeks in Pennsylvania.” 

Borich, the reigning ATV XC1 champion, now leads the race for the 2011 ATV Grand National Cross Country series championship by 16 points as the series moves to Patton, PA on May 29th for the Rock Run GNCC.
