Update from Jordan Phillips

As many of you know, at Race Driven we take pride in ATV racing, especially when we have the honor to sponsor such great racers. We would like to share with you an update provided by Jordan Phillips as he continues on his successful racing career.

"This past weekend marked round #10 of the Gncc series as we traveled up to Unadilla, Ny.  As many of you know I have been working hard over the summer break to prepare my 2013 Can-Am renegade Xxc for the final four races.  We got it complete about a month ago and I have been riding it every weekend leading up to the Unadilla race.  I had the quad setup excellent and it has been working well for me.  I already feel faster on it compared to my older G1 frame machine.  We arrived at the track Friday evening and I begin to walk the track.  It looked fast and the track conditions were just right with very little dust or mud. 

Race time arrived at 10:00 a.m saturday morning and I was pumped and ready to go.  I had a bad start going into the woods in 6th place but by the end of the first lap I had moved into 3rd place with my sights set on 1st and 2nd just 15 seconds ahead.  I pushed hard on the 2nd lap and ended up losing my 4wd which is essential when racing a 4x4 machine.  In 2wd the machine slides around and doesn't hook up as well as it would with the 4x4.  I ended losing one more position and finished up 4th in the U2 class and 17th overall in the morning event.  We are making a few changes between now the next race in just 2 weeks.  We are heading to Foxburg, Pa which is the first time an event has been held at this location.  We are looking forward to having a chance at winning this race!  Thanks again for everyone's continued support and prayers!"
