Amsoil GNCC – Dunlop Tomahawk – Round 8

By June 11, 2016GNCC

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.
