Canaan, IN (9/11/2012) – The 2012 Blingstar AMA MAXC ATV Racing Series headed back down to southern Indiana for Circle W Ranch Round 7 in Caanan, IN. Several of the top GNCC Racers were in attendance to get some extra practice in before the GNCC Summer break ends.

Precision Racing’s Adam McGill and Ballance Racing’s Taylor Kiser would battle down the finish to decide the victor. Adam McGill would edge out Taylor Kiser just a few turns before the finish to win the AA Class and the MAXC Adult ATV Overall. Taylor Kiser would place second followed by Brycen Neal in third.

With rain falling Friday into Saturday morning, it was looking like racers were in for what was thought to be a muddy race. By 8 am Saturday morning, the rain seized and the sun came out behind the clouds and began to dry the track up. By the beginning of the Adult ATV Race, the track was in near perfect conditions for an exciting ATV race.

Although Blingstar MAXC Round 7 took place in the same location as Round 1, almost the entire course used newly cut trails. The venue had a completely different feel than the opening round, which was held in the valley of the property, rather than at higher elevation of Round 7. The track consisted over just over 6 miles of virgin trails, several open field sections, a few creek crossings, and many hill climbs.

ITP’s Adam McGill drove 5.5 hours from West Virginia to Caanan, IN to race Blingstar MAXC Round 7. Although this was McGill’s first MAXC appearance, McGill had some close competition with many other fast ATV racers in attendance.  After grabbing the Holeshot, McGill held onto the lead for three laps until Taylor Kiser caught up and made the pass. McGill was able to regain the lead just before the finish to take the win.

“We pulled the Holeshot, I have a dirtworks 24volt system in this thing and it just fired right up. My ITP tires hooked up real well and I pulled the holeshot. I knew Taylor (Kiser) would be coming all day. I rode about three laps alone and on last lap he caught me and got around me. There were a couple lines I tired to pass, but he shut the door on me. The only one I knew of was this last one down here, so I tried to run it in deep and it held. I came out a little before him and we clipped. It happens but hopefully no hard feelings. I wouldn’t but anyone into the trees on purpose. I just assumed that I had the line and I held it. It was a good track and good racing” said Lonestar’s Adam McGill

After starting around midpack, Taylor Kiser worked his way up to second place behind Adam McGill. By the third lap Kiser was nipping at the heels of #2 Adam McGill. On the third lap Kiser was able to make the pass to take the lead. Kiser held off many pass attempts by McGill, but was unable to hang on to the lead before crossing the finish.

“The track was really good and had a good layout, it had a lot of hills and off cambers. They did a great job of laying it out. I got off to a kind of a bad start, I was fourth and I was able to work my way up. Adam (McGill) had a pretty good lead.” said Maxxis’ Taylor Kiser.

“I was able to put my head down and charge and catch up. I got the lead halfway through the last lap, but he passed me in a whoop section line I really didn’t see and we got together and I ended up in the bushes. Racing is racing and it was a good day all in all, and I was glad to come out with a second”

“I got a bad start, but I was able to weave my way past everyone in the first mile and a half. Kevin (Cunningham) and Ryan (Lane) looked like they were having problems. I basically rode by myself the whole time and I tried to catch the imaginary riders in front of me.” Stated Open A class points leader Brycen Neal.
