Amsoil GNCC – CST Tires Camp Coker Bullet – Round 5

By | GNCC | No Comments

The temperatures were not the only thing heating up as the fifth round of the 2016 AMSOIL Grand National Cross Country (GNCC) Series presented by Maxxis, an AMA National Championship, took place today, April 30, at the Moree’s Sportsman’s Preserve in Society Hill, South Carolina. The racing action was nothing short of exciting with heated battles taking place all day long at the Inaugural CST Tires Camp Coker Bullet GNCC. By the time the 1 p.m. pro race had started the overcast skies turned into sunshine and the hot and humid day created a true testament of the racer’s fitness levels, but at the end of the grueling two-hour race it was CST/LSR/Induction Solutions/DeRisi/SG/Tire Blocks’ Adam McGill claiming the Inaugural win in the Palmetto State.

As the green flag dropped it was McGill who jumped out to the early lead and claiming the $250 Wiseco XC1 Holeshot Award. Once they crossed the finish line for the first lap McGill had a nine second lead over N-Fab/Maxxis/AmPro Yamaha/Lonestar/MXP’s Walker Fowler in second.

With McGill and Fowler staying evenly spread in the top two positions, perhaps the best battle of the entire race was for the last podium position. Borich held onto the third place position throughout the second lap with N-Fab/Maxxis/AmPro Yamaha/Lonestar/MXP’s Cole Richardson right behind him.

When McGill came across the white flag he was being pushed by Fowler who was only two seconds behind him. The fight for the lead tightened up once they hit the motocross track and Fowler was able to move past McGill. The lead was short lived once Fowler ran over a berm, but he was able to quickly rebound and still maintain the second place position.

The Honda rider, Adam McGill, would see the checkered flag first followed by Fowler and Borich in second and third. McClure would finish an impressive fourth place with Neal following in fifth and Richardson in sixth.

The 2016 AMSOIL Grand National Cross Country Series resumes May 14 and 15 with the Limestone 100 GNCC in Springville, Indiana.

ProX ATV MX – Muddy Creek – Round 3 – Natalie takes 3rd

By | AMA | No Comments

Blountville, TN – Once the 30-second card turned sideways and the gate dropped for the second moto there was the familiar face of Maxxis/FLY Racing/Baldwin Motorsports’ John Natalie getting the early lead and earning the second SSI Decals Holeshot Award of the day.

When asked about the key to his consistency, Natalie said that his experience is what helps him when it comes to putting in top finishes. “There was a lot of rain yesterday to deal with, but I think the track ended up turning out pretty well,” said Natalie. “Sometimes I’m not the fastest guy out there, but I find myself on the podium because of my experience.”

As soon as Wienen moved into the runner-up position, Natalie spun out in the same turn that Hetrick was a victim of during the first moto ultimately giving up the lead to Wienen.

Amsoil GNCC – Big Buck – Round 4

By | GNCC | No Comments

The Grand National Cross Country Series (GNCC) presented by Maxxis, an AMA National Championship, celebrated 20 years at the iconic Big Buck Farm today, April 16. After a jam-packed day of racing action at the VP Racing Farms Big Buck GNCC it was CST/LSR/Induction Solutions/DeRisi/SG/Tire Blocks’ Adam McGill who came out and top and took home to coveted overall win after a comeback performance.

As soon as the green flag dropped the XC1 Pro class was set for battle as they charged into the South Carolina woods. McGill and N-Fab/Maxxis/AmPro Yamaha/Lonestar/MXP’s Walker Fowler looked to be the top two holeshot contenders until they met each other and made contact that ultimately took Fowler out and allowed for Maxxis/Fly Racing/HMF/Ye Olde Cycle Barn/Suzuki-backed Chris Borich to grab the $250 Wiseco Holeshot Award.

After narrowly escaping the first turn crash, McGill was busy working his way up through the pack. By the second lap the West Virginia native found himself sitting in a podium position, but was hungry for more.

JMR/ATVriders.com/DWT’s Jarrod McClure was following in McGill’s footsteps where he moved from sixth place on the first lap to right behind McGill on the third lap.

As the white flag came out Neal was still sitting comfortably in first, but McGill was putting in one last charge for the win. With just a handful of turns remaining in the grueling two-hour race, McGill had shaved off 30 seconds on Neal and had his eyes set on taking gold.

When Neal and McGill emerged from the last wood’s section it was the number 521 leading the way. McGill would claim the coveted overall win with Neal crossing just one second behind him in second. McClure saw the checkered flag just seven seconds after the top two. The finish was good enough to land McClure his first podium of the season.

The 1 p.m. race and the UTV race were broadcast LIVE in their entirety on RacerTV.com and can be viewed as archived videos online by visiting the GNCC LIVE page online.

The 2016 AMSOIL Grand National Cross Country Series resumes April 30 and May 1 with the inaugural CST Tires Camp Coker Bullet GNCC in Union, South Carolina.

ProX ATV MX – The Underground MX Park – Round 2 – Natalie takes 3rd

By | AMA | No Comments

Kemp, TX – Rain began to fall right before the second moto began creating quite the opposite track conditions than the racers experienced in the first moto. However, once the gate dropped it was much the same story with Wienen once again pulling the holeshot and Natalie following his tracks. After falling back to fourth in the first moto, Natalie was able to hold onto the second place position earning him third overall.

“I ended up stalling my bike over one of the jumps and that let Rastrelli and Brown get around me in the first moto,” said Natalie. “I was able to pass Rastrelli, but just ran out of time when I was finally able to get Brown in sight. The second moto went much better. I suffered from roost, but it feels great to end up on the podium.”

Amsoil GNCC – FMF Steele Creek – Round 3

By | GNCC | No Comments

As the first lap wore on, Fowler and Shadron began to separate themselves from the rest of the pack while the racing tightened up behind them. CST/LSR/Induction Solutions/DeRisi/SG/Tire Blocks’ Adam McGill and Maxxis/Fly Racing/HMF/Ye Olde Cycle Barn/Suzukis Chris Borich began the fight for third.

On the second lap of the four-lap race, Fowler had pulled a twenty second lead on Shadron who still maintained the second place position until McGill was able to work his way around him. The racing action really heated up during the third lap where the top three racers were suddenly wheel-to-wheel all battling for the lead. With reports of Fowler looking down at his quad, the crowd anticipated an extra pit stop but was shocked when he decided to keep pushing.

The decision to keep racing and avoid an extra pit stop paid off in the end when Fowler crossed the finish line first. He was followed by last year’s Steele Creek GNCC winner, McGill, who made his first podium appearance of the season.

“It feels great to be back on the podium,” said McGill. “I felt like the bike was there the whole time this season and I just personally haven’t been ready, but now it’s all fitting together and it’s good to be back where I know I’m supposed to be.”
