Kaska, PA (10/30/2017) - JMR/ Jarrod McClure earned his fourth second place overall finish this past weekend at the Ironman GNCC in Crawfordsville Indiana. McClure led a majority of the two hour race, but after a last lap battle with Walker Fowler he had to settle for second place for the day only one second behind him.

The Ironman GNCC is always the last stop of the GNCC series in Crawfordsville, Indiana. The facility brings to the table everything a GNCC track could offer, steep hills, creek crossings, tight woods, and open fields. Despite some cold temperatures, the track conditions were near perfect for the day as racers headed to the start to let it all hang out at the last race of the season.

DWT’s McClure pulled a great start coming off the line in third place but quickly made his way into second behind Walker Fowler as racers hit the MX track. Jarrod and Walker swapped positions a few times on the first lap and even put a nice gap between themselves and the rest of the field, until Jarrod made a mistake, which pushed him back to third.

“I think I finally got my starts figured out. It was nice heading into the woods behind Walker, I was ready for an all out battle and Walker was riding really smooth. I made a mistake on the second lap and it allowed him and Adam Mcgill to put some time on me, but I put my head down and was able to catch them”, said McClure.

McClure was able to take back the lead on the third lap and maintained it until the final miles of the race, where Fowler made the pass on him in one of the split line sections to take the lead. Jarrod kept pressure on him until they crossed the finish line only one second apart.

“It was really an awesome race out there I think the three of us out front all had some little bobbles, and in the end I am very bummed to not get the win. I took the line I thought was faster but apparently it wasn’t. This one definitely stings more than any because it also cost me a spot in the championship points”, said McClure.

JMR’s XC1 Pro racer Randy Hamilton started his day around ninth position, where he rode the majority of the race and ended up finishing in the class for the day.

Final results on the season are Jarrod McClure finishing third overall in the XC1 points and Randy Hamilton finishing twentieth in the XC1 overall points. JMR would like to thank all our great sponsors and we will see you next year!
