2 DFR-sponsored Drivers Take 2nd Place Wins in a Pair of Races

June 08, 2010

William-Yokley-DragonFire-National_GuardA pair of DragonFire Racing-sponsored drivers took second-place honors in separate races last weekend in Anza, California and Millfield, Ohio.

Kyle Melville traversed a rough course of trees, bushes, rocks and other of nature’s delightful debris to follow the leader past the finish line in the World Off-Road Championship Series (WORCS) at Cahuilla Creek in the California desert.

Melville tells us he maneuvered his DragonFire RZR UTV (Vehicle No. 661) on what was mostly a single trail barely wide enough for a stock-width RZR. He said the motocross track held a few good-sized jumps and was just about the only place where a pass could be made.

The start went straight up a hill so horsepower was everything at the beginning of this race,” Melville said. “I entered the first turn in fifth position.” He made the pass on fourth in the motocross section of the first lap, then slowly picked the drivers off one by one until he ran out of time.

I ran out of time to catch first, so I took a second-place finish,” he said, adding that Washington will be the round he needs to secure a comfortable point lead.

Meanwhile, William Yokley finished second overall and second in the UTV class at the John Penton GNCC ATV and UTV Race in Millfield, Ohio on June 5. For the uninitiated, the John Penton race is usually either dusty or muddy, but this year, it was a combo plate — dusty in the morning and, after an afternoon rainstorm delayed the race for an hour, muddy in the afternoon with parts of the motocross track under several feet of water.

Driving with his dad, Mike, as a guest passenger, it was a family affair when Yokley’s National Guard Polaris DragonFire UTV skidded off the track and over an embankment on the second turn. Somehow, Yokley still managed to maintain the lead, but a bottleneck enabled all the other UTVs to catch up, and the No. 10 UTV finished in second place.
