MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (February 16, 2017) – Racer Productions, producer of the AMSOIL Grand National Cross Country Series (GNCC) presented by Maxxis, an AMA National Championship is proud to announce a new partnership with HiPer Technology. HiPer will join the world’s most prestigious off-road racing organization as the newest feature level sponsor.
“The GNCC series is the ultimate proving ground for ATV and UTV vehicles. Our HiPer Technology brand wheels are built with the same design, engineering, and passion we put into all our WELD wheels,” said Norm Young, President and CEO of WELD. “We’re looking forward to being an official sponsor and GNCC partner as we showcase our HiPer Technology wheels at all 13 events this year.”
The HiPer partnership with the GNCC series expands to the rider base where they will have on-site activation at every race, with both ATV and UTV products available. With the GNCC race courses being some of the most demanding and rigorous cross-country races in the world, the engineered HiPer products are known to stand the test.
“We are so excited to start a new partnership with HiPer for the 2017 GNCC Racing season,” said GNCC Marketing Manager Nick Koester. “They have been a part of the off-road industry for years including supporting GNCC athletes, so to bring them on with the series is a perfect fit. We are looking forward to working with them at the events as they will be present and activating at each round.”
