Moose Racing Wild Boar Youth ATV Race Report
Stewart and Davis win at Wild Boar

The Moose Racing Wild Boar, round one of the 2019 AMSOIL Grand National Cross Country (GNCC) Series presented by Specialized, an AMA National Championship, took place on March 9th and 10th. The race takes place at Hog Waller Mud Bog, on the edge of Rodman Plantation. Many years ago, Rodman Plantation was the site of The Hurricane GNCC, and since 2015 GNCC has been returning for the Wild Boar.

The youth ATV course in Florida was approximately four miles and was pretty typical for a Florida race – lots of sand! In some places it’s a fine sugar sand, while in others it mixes with black dirt, making a slightly loamier sand. But the sand, mud and exposed palmetto roots present in the youth course still make for a tough day. While the shorter 1.3 mile micro course is designed to accommodate the younger racers and even smaller machines in the micro race, it is undeniable that sand is hard on them, making Florida an especially tough event. A total of 63 youth riders and 16 micro riders took part in the Wild Boar GNCC. Of them, Cooper Stewart was the overall winner in the youth race while Khyler Davis was the overall winner in the micro division.

In addition to his overall win, Cooper Stewart also took home the win in the YXC1 class. At first, it didn’t look like it would be smooth sailing for Stewart – he came through the barrels on lap one in 9th place, almost thirty seconds from the leader. Although Parker Henderson lead laps one though five, Stewart was able to take the lead on the final lap. Henderson held on to second place while Bryce Husband rounded out the podium.  Cooper Stewart was “glad that he moved up to YXC1 this year” and after his successful outing at the Wild Boar he is confident that he is going to be a serious contender for the YXC1 championship.

Charlie Stewart, the younger of the Stewart brothers, would come out on top in the YXC2 division and place 7th overall. He had a bit of a smoother race than his older brother, leading YXC2 nearly every lap. With that being said, Kaden Lambruno was able to make up over a minute on the last lap, finishing a relatively close second. Connor Walker placed third after steadily working his way up from seventh place on the first lap. When asked about his race, Stewart said “It was a great race to start the year and also a great track to start with!” 

The overall non-YXC rider in the ATV youth race was Andrea Rogers (YAM). She competed in the Girl’s class, finishing 10th overall.

In the MXC ATV division, Khyler Davis put in a tremendous ride, taking the MXC and the overall Micro win. She absolutely dominated her competition, finishing a full eight minutes ahead of her competition in the approximately 35-minute race. On the other hand, second place finisher Tyler McLauglin and third place finisher Reed Stevens were battling closely for most of the race, only a handful of seconds apart at any given moment. At least, they were battling closely until Stevens appeared to experience trouble on lap four, more than doubling his previous laptime and completing no more laps for the reminder of the race. When asked about her race, Khyler Davis told us “I love riding in the sand, even though it’s different from riding back home in West Virgina. I also love beating up on the boys, and I plan on doing it again this weekend too!”

The overall non-MXC rider in the Micro ATV race was Zander Rogers (DDR). He competed in 50 sr. and placed 2nd overall.

Khyler Davis took the ATV Micro overall win on Saturday, March 9.
