ROCKSTAR MAKITA SUZUKI’S CHRIS BORICH CLOSES OUT THE SEASON WITH A WIN AT LORETTA LYNN’S ATV GNCC

Rockstar Makita Suzuki’s Chris Borich claimed an exciting come-from-behind victory aboard his Makita tools prepped Suzuki QuadRacer R450 to put a wrap on an exhilarating season of ATV racing at the final round of the Grand National Cross Country Series at Loretta Lynn’s Ranch in Hurricane Mills, TN on Saturday.
 
After two hours of intense racing, Borich made a decisive pass to take the lead with less than a quarter mile left in the race, cutting under the race leader on his Yoshimura-equipped Suzuki just before entering the legendary “Ten Commandments” whoop section. After that, the Pennsylvania rider protected his line through the final few turns to claim a thrilling win.
 
The win was the ninth of the year for Borich, and it was icing on the cake after wrapping up his third-straight title at the previous round in Indiana.
 
“It’s good to finish out with a win,” said Borich. “I had some lines picked out on the motocross track and I knew I could make a pass there, and I just saved it until I needed it.”
 
As he often does, Borich took his time getting into the groove and was sitting fourth when the lead pack entered the final lap. Making sure he kept his mistakes to a minimum on the tricky, whooped-out course, Borich took his time picking the riders off, until he found himself in second heading into the motocross portion of the track for the final time.
 
“At the beginning of the race, I was just pushing and I felt a little out of control, but in the middle of the race, I got in the groove and started having fun and was able to put on a charge and close in on those guys,” said Borich. “I knew if I could stay close, I had some good lines out there and I was pretty comfortable on the motocross track. Me and [Chris] Bithell were battling out there, and he pulled some lines on me, and I was able to use the awesome power of my Suzuki QuadRacer to get by him, but I knew those lines were available and I just filed it back until the last lap. I was able to use one of the lines to get by McGill there at the end, and after that I just put my head down.”
 
Borich is known for his last lap charges, and the Loretta Lynn race was another exciting example, although he insists it’s not something he plans out beforehand.
 
“I just think I feel comfortable on the last lap and I don’t know if those guys slow down on the last lap or if I pick it up, but somehow I’m able to make it work,” said Borich.
 
Borich finished off the final standings with 336 points, 50 points more than the second place finisher.
 

“I want to thank Rockstar Makita Suzuki, my team, and mechanic, John, for all the support this year,” said Borich. “It’s been a great year and something we can build on for next year.”
