in the championship. At the end of the
race, it was Cody Miller leading from

UTV championship and Yamaha’s first
GNCC XC1 UTV championship! Chaney
ended up with a hard-fought second

Ironman GNCC never disappoints,
and 2017 wasn’t any different. Yes, it
was cold; yes, it was challenging for the
racers; and yes, the fans or “mud fleas,”
families, and each racer were loving
every minute of the madness of Ironman!
If you ever find yourself not having
anything to do in the last weekend of
October, we suggest you pack up your
family and friends and hightail it to
Crawfordsville, Indiana, to see the most
coveted ATV race in the nation! ❏
This may look like an episode of the “Walking Dead,” but
these are all of the dedicated fans that travel far and wide

Ironman Hill has

the most gnarly
hill-climbs in any
type of racing.

do it justice,
but the riders
have to have full
