Amsoil GNCC – Snowshoe – Round 9

By June 25, 2016GNCC

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.
