Rocky Mountain ATV*MC/KR4/Husqvarna Team Report: Zink Ranch National Enduro

SAND SPRINGS, O.K. (October 17, 2017) – Grant Baylor raced his way to second overall at this weekend’s John Zink Ranch National Enduro in Sand Springs, Oklahoma. Rain showers over Saturday night made for slick conditions in the morning and Grant Baylor struggled through the first test, starting the day outside the top ten.

Baylor quickly turned his day around winning test three, and finishing every other test in a podium position. Just before the end of the day, Baylor passed Duvall to claim second overall, narrowly missing out on first by 14 seconds. Baylor’s finish also helped him solidify his third place overall standing in the national championship chase.


“The day was pretty intense with Stew [Baylor], Thad [Duvall] and myself changing positions in almost every test,” said Baylor. “It came down to the last test where I managed to edge past Thad for second just three seconds separating us in the end. I’m pretty happy to get two second place finishes in a row and lock up third in points for the year with one round remaining.”

Chase Sweda raced his way to seventh in B 250. Maximo Gutierrez found success on the rocky and tight trails, winning the 200 C class. Gutierrez sits second in the title chase by only 25 points as the series winds down. Ambrocio Gutierrez placed inside the top ten with ninth in the highly-competitive 40+ B division.
