Quick thinking and a well-timed pass helped McGill Mafia/CST Tires/Moose Racing’s Adam McGill gain his first GNCC victory of the season. McGill won Round 4, FMF Steele Creek, held April 7 in Morganton, North Carolina.McGill and his fellow racers contended with heavy rain and the resulting muddy, rutted course for much of the race. But even though traction was at a premium, his CST Pulse tires performed when it counted. When a slick downhill section caused problems for the two front riders, McGill made a pass that gave him the lead, and he never looked back.Despite losing his goggles during the race, Bneal Motorsports/CST Tires/Houser Racing’s Brycen Neal turned in a good performance, taking fourth place. Neal is currently second in points for XC1 Pro.
After a fierce battle with another rider throughout the race, Layne McCormick won the Youth race. The win was also his third in a row for YXC1 Super Mini Sr. (13-15).
CST Camp Coker Bullet, Round 5 of the AMOIL GNCC series, is scheduled for April 21-22 in Society Hill, South Carolina. CST congratulates Adam McGill on his victory and thanks Brycen Neal for his fine performance.
With a victory in XC1 Pro, Brycen Neal attained a career first over the weekend. Neal topped the podium at AMSOIL GNCC Round 3, the Maxxis General, held March 17 in Washington, Georgia.
Neal, of Bneal Motorsports/CST Tires/Houser Racing, took the lead about a half-mile into the course. He didn’t drop behind for the rest of the race, even through the ultra-demanding Monster Mile, when he and Chris Borich were neck and neck. Despite a fierce challenge from Borich throughout the last lap, Neal held his lead and took his first-ever XC1 Pro GNCC win in a heart-stopping finish. After three rounds, he holds second place in points for the class.
Adam McGill had a difficult day but demonstrated grit and determination in finishing the race. Despite severe blisters on his hands which made steering next-to-impossible, he managed a top-ten finish, earning eighth place. McGill is currently fifth in XC1 points.

With a sponsorship roster that includes returning stars and newly signed champions, CST Tires continues to step up its game in the world of ATV and off-road motorcycle racing. The company has built on solid results from last season by recruiting a powerhouse line-up for 2018.
“We have a deep roster this year, and we know that all of these riders are fully capable of winning a championship on CST tires. We’re very confident about our prospects,” said Chris Meyer, marketing coordinator for CST Tires.
New riders include eight-time ATVMX champion Nick Gennusa, who will again contest that series’ Pro class, and Brycen Neal, who’s gunning for the GNCC Pro title after taking second overall last season. Michael Swift will ride for CST in GNCC’s 4×4 Pro, UTV Pro, and Ace classes, as well as competing in the Heartland Challenge. Swift’s GNCC competition in 4×4 Pro and UTV Pro will include fellow CST rider Kevin Trantham, who is also new to the company’s roster.
CST’s returning stars include nine-time WORCS champion Beau Baron, who will compete in WORCS Pro ATV and Pro SxS, as well as Quad Cross and the Big 6 series in 2018. Adam McGill, who rode CST to fifth place overall in GNCC’s Pro class and appeared on the podium seven times in 2017, will work to leave his competition in the dust in the GNCC, IXCR ATV Pro Overall, and WEXCR Pro Overall. No stranger to the ATVMX podium, Thomas Brown will compete in that series’ Pro class, plus Pont de Vaux and QXON.
Desert racer Cory Sappington will again compete in both Best in the Desert and the SCORE-International series. Like his new teammates Swift and Trantham, Dwight Pollard is scheduled to race in GNCC’s 4×4 Pro class. Pollard will also compete in the series’ XC3 SxS class, as well as the Heartland Challenge, Mid East, SORCS, and IXCR. Sean Bogdan will compete in GNCC UTV XC1 Pro, and Justin Wood will race the series’ 4×4 Senior A class.
Racing motorcycles for CST will be Mitch Anderson. Among Mitch’s accomplishments during the past year was a team victory at the John Burr 10 Hours of Glen Helen.
CST is proud to welcome all of its riders to its strongest ATV roster yet, and looks forward to cheering them on to victory throughout the year.
CST’s reputation as a top brand for ATV racing continues to grow as the company’s sponsored riders take victories and podiums in major series.
Adam McGill turned in his best performance of the season at GNCC Round 4, taking an early lead and holding it for much of the first two laps. After a fierce battle with Walker Fowler through the rest of the race, he took second place despite being slowed during the final two laps by mechanical issues. His performance moved him into third place in the overall national championship standings.
At ATV Motocross National Championship (ATVMX) presented by CST Tires Round 2 at Underground MX Park, Thomas Brown made a late-racepass and rode CST’s new Pulse MXR to second place in Moto 1. A similar pass earned him third place in Moto 2, and Brown earned second place overall for the round. Brown is third in the ATMX overall national standings.
Beau Baron, who leads WORCS’ Pro standings, was undefeated in the series’ first four Pro rounds and most recently took second place in both Pro and Pro SxS at Round 6, The Orleans. “The CST Tires are awesome. The rears worked so well, especially. I couldn’t see running anything else here, especially considering the different surfaces,” he said regarding his tires’ performance during The Orleans.
He had just as much praise for his CST tires after The Orleans’ Pro SxS race. “I tried driving it like a go-kart and get as much traction as I could in the turns,” said Baron. “My CST Tires were working great. They just had so much traction.”
Also this weekend, Baron claimed second in Pro II at Round 4 of the Big 6 Grand Prix Series, a performance that followed his wins in the class at the series’ second and third rounds.
CST is proud to sponsor all of these fine riders and is thrilled to cheer them on as they earn victories and podiums throughout the rest of the season.
Riders on CST tires continue to make their mark on this season’s GNCC races. Winner William Yokley and teammate Scott Kiger took two UTV XC1 podium spots at Round 4, while Adam McGill took fourth place in ATV XC1 Pro. The event was held April 12 in Union, South Carolina.
Yokley’ said that his CST Behemoths aided in his victory. “The tires worked so well. The Behemoth is so predictable and provides a very plush ride. I love them, because they do exactly what I think they are going to do,” he said. After two UTV races, Yokley’s Polaris National Guard machine leads the UTV XC1 Modified class standings with 41 points, with Kiger’s Coastal National Guard machine just four points behind in third place.
McGill, who jockeyed with another rider in the front four throughout the main race, was just as pleased with the performance of his CST tires: “The tires never missed a beat all race; no holes and no worries, with a good pulse.”
CST congratulates William Yokley on his victory and thanks Scott Kiger, Adam McGill and all of its riders for their fine performances.
