Swift, Trantham go one, two at GNCC Wild Boar
Minneapolis, March 7, 2016-The Wild Boar in Palatka, Fla. is the first GNCC race of the season and Team UXC came in ready to race.
Teammates Michael Swift, on his No. 202 Scrambler XP 1000 EPS, and Kevin Trantham, on his No. 209 Scrambler XP 1000 EPS, started mid pack off the line and quickly worked their way to the front. The duo would swap positions throughout the race with Swift ultimately finishing first and Trantham second.
Swift and Trantham would also line up their RZR S 1000 for the XC1 Pro class. Swift would take fourth while Trantham twelfth due to a mud trap he encountered.

Robert Boyton would take the win with Team UXC/Polaris Factory Racer Torey Rush taking second and Dillon Harper took third.
