William Yokley of Team Polaris National Guard took his second win of the season at Round 4 of the GNCC UTV series, with teammate Scott Kiger joining him on the podium in third place.
Yokley’s victory takes Team Polaris, the defending champions, one step closer to another title. Yokley is the current points leader of the class, while Kiger is third. Both riders trusted CST 26” Clincher tires to take them to the podium. Yokley was pleased with their performance: “The tires really worked well this weekend. The Clinchers had perfect traction and durability in the slick, rocky sections. I am really happy with the tires, and they just keep getting better and better for us.”
CST congratulates William Yokley on his victory and thanks Scott Kiger and all of its riders for their outstanding performances.
Long a promoter of mountain biking in all its forms, CST is proud to support the International Mountain Bicycling Association-CST Trail Builder Program.
The company is providing tires to the non-profit educational group’s program. The tires will be used as rewards for the volunteers who come out to work on their local trails with CST products. Earlier this year, CST supported IMBA by providing tires and giveaway items for the organization’s membership drive at the Sea Otter Classic. IMBA Membership Manager Ron Judd expressed his appreciation. “Sincere thanks for the tires, tubes, pens and bags that CST supplied for IMBA’s presence at Sea Otter. We had these on show at two of our booths, in posters and event media and the attendee response was incredible. The deal helped IMBA with a huge lift in year-over-year membership signups and a 35% lift overall in fundraising,” said Judd.
Founded in 1988, IMBA today has more than 35,000 individual members and 750 chapters, clubs and patrols. The organization encourages low-impact riding, volunteer trail work participation, cooperation among different trail user groups, grassroots advocacy and innovative trail management solutions.
CST congratulates IMBA on its fine work and is happy to provide support to this worthwhile organization. For more information on IMBA, please visit imba.com.

CST is proud to announce its association with Coastal Racing Factory Polaris, the premier side-by-side race team on the East Coast of the United States.
CST’s Clincher tires will provide traction for William Yokley and Scott Kiger throughout the 2013 GNCC series, as they look to maintain their winning ways: The teammates finished first and second in the XC1 Modified UTV class in 2012.
The six-race 2013 series has already begun, and Yokley jumped out to the early season points lead with a win at the first UTV round, held March 16 in Washington, GA. “The race went pretty good. The track was gnarly. It was really rough, pretty slick in a lot of spots and there were lots of roots,” Yokley said. “But the Clincher tires really held in there good for me. I had lots of control. I was able to skate through the roots and catch the berms, so I had all the traction I needed to get the win.” Kiger put together a solid race and finished fourth overall.
CST wishes Yokley racing the best of luck in 2013 as they race to the championship. The next GNCC round featuring UTV racing is April 20 in Union, SC.
Consumers can purchase the Clincher from their favorite local powersports dealer or online retailer. Dealers should inquire with their distributors to order inventory. For more information, visit www.csttires.com.
