Masontown, WV-June 16,2013– Bigelow Motorsports, known as a mainstay in Ultra 4 racing and Rockcrawling for the last decade has expanded into UTV and SXS racing this past weekend in the Grand National Cross Country (GNCC) UTV racing series. Troy (Chris) Bigelow, brother to Doug Bigelow, piloted his 2013 Polaris 800 S to a top 5 in class finish at the rough and tumble Masontown, WV race track. Brother Doug acted as the co-driver and navigator. Their overall effort against all classes netted them a respectable 22nd out of 47th place against the best UTV drivers in the country throughtout 6 different classes including the pro class of 23 drivers. Both brothers were elated with their finish for the first time out but are eager to get back out on the track to prove they have learned from this experience. “We came to Masontown with a goal of going out to see if we could run with the top guys in the country and bring the last decade of racing experience from Bigelow Motorsports to an unkown type of racing challenge that racing UTV’s presents” said Troy Bigelow. “We built this vehicle in three days, and it virtually has no miles on it at all. We raced a little conservatively for our first time out not exactly knowing what we we getting into, but are really excited about our possibilities in this sport and racing in the GNCC series for the rest of this year and in 2013,” noted Doug Bigelow.
