In what is sure to be the first of many such victories, CST’s sponsored rider William Yokley wrapped up the GNCC UTV championship at the series’ season finale. The race was held October 26 in Crawfordsville, Indiana.
The Polaris rider’s fifth place finish for the day secured his title, after a season which saw him win three of the year’s six GNCC UTV races. Yokley said that his CST Behemoth tires, which made their racing debut taking him to victory in Round 5, came through for him again. “The Behemoth tires were excellent this weekend,” he told CST. “The steering was excellent, and the tires were extremely predictable all the way around the track. Whether in the woods or at high speeds, the Behemoth tires were awesome all day long!”
CST congratulates Team Polaris National Guard’s William Yokley on his championship and on a season of exciting GNCC racing.

A CST prototype tire made a spectacular debut when William Yokley rode it to victory at Round 5 of the GNCC series. The race, which featured the first use of CST’s new Behemoth model in competition, was held October 12 in St. Clairsville, Ohio.
Yokley said that the Behemoth gave him what he needed in slick conditions: “The tires really performed well, and I had total confidence in them the whole race. They hooked up great in the slick corners. I felt in complete control while sliding, and the tires performed great at high speeds.”
The victory, the third for the Polaris National Guard Team in the season’s five races to date, gave the team the lead in the series’ points race. After five rounds, Yokley has racked up 116 points in the XC1 Modified class. The Behemoth will be available to consumers in the coming months. Yokley’s early-season success came using the CST Clincher side-by-side tire, which is currently available for purchase at local powersports shops or online retailers.
CST congratulates William Yokley on his victory and wishes him the best at Round 6, scheduled for October 26-27 in Crawfordsville, Indiana.
