Amsoil GNCC – Snowshoe – Round 9

By | GNCC | No Comments

The 2016 AMSOIL Grand National Cross Country (GNCC) Series presented by Maxxis, an AMA National Championship, continued today, June 25, with the AMSOIL Snowshoe GNCC held at the popular Snowshoe Mountain Resort in West Virginia. “America’s toughest race” lived up to its nickname after an abundant amount of rain fell in the days prior to the race creating slick and muddy conditions for the world’s fastest off-road ATV racers.

With the unique live engine start modeled after the famed Blackwater 100 race, Maxxis/Fly Racing/HMF/Ye Olde Cycle Barn/Suzuki’s Chris Borich would find himself in a favorable position and lead the way into the woods. Once they checked through timing and scoring for the first time Fast Traxx/Wolf Racing’s Brian Wolf had taken over and was running in the lead position.

However, CST/LSR/Induction Solutions/DeRisi/SG/Tire Blocks’ Adam McGill would move into the lead by the conclusion of the second lap with N-Fab/Maxxis/AmPro Yamaha/Lonestar/MXP’s Walker Fowler on his back tires.

While following McGill, Fowler would get stuck where he dropped back to the sixth place position. This allowed JMR/ATVriders.com/DWT’s Jarrod McClure to slide into second. By the third lap, Coastal Racing/MSR/Maxxis’ Brycen Neal had swapped positions for second place.

Neal would have a quick sprint in the lead position during the white flag until McGill would recover and take back over the lead. McGill held the lead position throughout the last lap where he would see the checkered flag first and take the win in front of his hometown friends and family.

The 2016 AMSOIL Grand National Cross Country Series continues in the fall, September 10 and 11, with the Parts Unlimited Unadilla GNCC at the popular Unadilla MX in New Berlin, New York.

Amsoil GNCC – Dunlop Tomahawk – Round 8

By | GNCC | No Comments

The 2016 AMSOIL Grand National Cross Country (GNCC) Series presented by Maxxis, an AMA National Championship, continued today in Odessa, New York with the Second Annual Dunlop Tomahawk GNCC. By the time the 1 p.m. Pro race kicked off the weather had turned around creating near perfect race conditions. At the conclusion of the two hour race it would be N-Fab/Maxxis/AmPro Yamaha/Lonestar/MXP’s Walker Fowler crossing the line first with a commanding lead.

Fowler quickly capitalized on the open track and began pulling away from the rest of the field and gaining valuable time. Once he checked through timing and scoring for the first time he already had a 27-second lead ahead of Borich who still remained in second.

Meanwhile, Borich would find himself in a battle with CST/LSR/Induction Solutions/DeRisi/SG/Tire Blocks’ Adam McGill. Borich would ultimately end up losing his back brakes on the first lap which created an added challenge for the six-time champion. Borich and McGill spent the entirety of the race swapping positions.

While Fowler would take the victory by almost two minutes, Borich would end up finishing an impressive second overall after racing more than half the race without rear brakes. McGill rounded out the overall podium in third.

“I really couldn’t get it together today,” said McGill. “I really just tried to make a go of it today and charge the whole race. I made a few mistakes and could just never recover from them. This track is hard on me in general just do to the fact that it doesn’t fit my style and I just never have good luck here.”

The 2016 AMSOIL Grand National Cross Country Series continues with round nine on June 25 and 26 with the famed AMSOIL Snowshoe GNCC at the Snowshoe Mountain Resort in West Virginia.

ProX ATV MX – Monster Mountain – Round 6 – Natalie takes 3rd

By | AMA | No Comments

Tallassee, AL – JB Racing/Root River Racing/Gold Speed Tires’ Jeffrey Rastrelli was busy working his way up from a sixth place start where he was able to pass Musick and Maxxis/FLY Racing/Baldwin Motorsports’ John Natalie to take third in the first moto.

Maxxis/FLY Racing/Baldwin Motorsports’s John Natalie would jump out to the early lead and claim the SSi Decals Holeshot Award for the second moto. Natalie used the open track to his advantage where he would continue leading for the first few laps, while Wienen and Hetrick were engaging in their own battle in second and third.

“The track turned out great this weekend,” said Natalie. “I didn’t do so well in qualifying, but was able to make some adjustments to pull the holeshot in the second moto and come away with a third overall for the weekend.”

Wienen and Hetrick were able to pass Natalie on the fourth lap where they would eventually come in contact together as they entered the pro section of the race course. Wienen would end up spinning out due to the hit from Hetrick and flip over which allowed for Hetrick to move into the lead position and check out on the rest of the pro field. While Natalie would slide into second, Wienen would quickly recover to run in third and then make the pass back for second.

With a pair of 1-1 moto finishes Hetrick took home the Monster Mountain National win, followed by Wienen (2-2) and Natalie (4-3).
