GNCC Racing Series

Amsoil GNCC Series Kicks off with VP Racing's Big Buck
Walker Fowler Competes Against Riders Looking to End His Success

Morgantown, WV (3/2/2017) - After a four-month hiatus, the AMSOIL Grand National Cross Country (GNCC) Series presented by Maxxis, an AMA National Championship, is back in action this weekend, March 4 and 5, at the Big Buck Farm in Union, South Carolina. The 21st Annual VP Racing Fuels Big Buck GNCC marks a historic moment for the GNCC series, where it will be serving as the season opener for the first time.

The announcement of the schedule starting at Big Buck isn't the only big news circulating, two-time National Champion Walker Fowler is slated to run his own program this year, where his Yamaha machine will be backed by WFR Racing, Maxxis and Fly Racing. Perhaps the opportunity to hand-pick his support will offer Fowler an extra confidence boost as he sets his sights on earning his third straight National Championship.

One rider who shows a promising future is Coastal Racing's Brycen Neal. With a few years in the XC1 Pro class now on his resume, the up-and-coming star will be one to keep an eye on this Saturday as he remains on the hunt for his first overall podium. Neal's 2016 results prove that he will be a top contender for the title this year, and especially this weekend where the momentum and points will be starting over for the coveted National Championship.

Of course, CST/Induction Solutions/LSR/HiPer/Spider Graphix's Adam McGill will come out swinging at the season opener race. The Honda racer has placed in the runner-up position in the points chase the past two years, and is ready to change that. McGill took the Big Buck GNCC win just one year ago, and will be looking to repeat his success and start his season off strong and take the early points lead this Saturday.

Even though it has been four months since the last race, JMR/ATVriders.com's Jarrod McClure will come into the race with an extra confidence boost from winning the AMSOIL Ironman GNCC. McClure has landed on the box at the Big Buck GNCC the past two year, but is still missing a win. The Pennsylvania natives' self-assurance may just be the tipping point to take the win.

As last year's season progressed so did the results for both N-Fab/AmPro Yamaha's Cole Richardson and GBC/Canyon Motorsports/FLY Racing's Landon Wolfe. The duo are both on a search to find the checkered flag first in South Carolina.

It's been two years since Chris Borich has stood in the middle of the box. The six-time champion has been working hard during the off-season to return to his winning ways and claim his 74th overall win. The yellow quad will be a front-runner this weekend, so make sure to keep an eye on Borich.

Saturday's race schedule is as follows: Youth ATV racing begins at 8 a.m., followed by amateurs, 4x4 Pro and Women at 10 a.m., and the top amateurs and pros race at 1 p.m. Following Saturday's afternoon race will be 50cc Micro racing taking place at 4:30 p.m.
