Dustin Gibson Breaks Through & Wins First GNCC For The Monster Energy/
Andrews/Yamaha Team!

HUGE day for Fred Andrews’ program as Gibson wins and Josh 
Weisenfels finishes 3rd at Round Four of the ”˜08 Can-Am GNCC Series 

CORONA, Calif., (April 15, 2008) ”“ Can-Am Grand National Cross Country 
Series racer Dustin Gibson of the Monster Energy/Andrews/Yamaha scored 
the team’s first win of the 2008 competition season, this past weekend 
taking first place honors in the XC2 class in Union City, S.C. And to 
make things even sweeter for team owner Fred Andrews, Gibson’s 
teammate Josh Weisenfels was on the podium as well in 3rd place overall.

The racers were greeted with heavy rains on Friday, which actually 
made for excellent conditions on Sunday’s race. Pulling the team’s 
best start was Weisenfels, who was battling for the race lead and the 
end of the first lap. Gibson, who crashed at the start, charged from 
the rear and teammate Dave Snyder was in 8th after the first lap.

“By the second lap Josh had put his YZ250F up front and was pulling 
away from Dustin, who’d made it all the way back up to 2nd after 
crashing,” said Andrews.

The two continued to race close until Weisenfels got stuck in a mud 
hole at the four mile mark of the last lap and Gibson was able to get 
around him. “I thought I finished in 2nd,” said Gibson. “I actually 
never saw Josh stick in the mud hole. My Monster/Andrews/Yamaha works 
to good out there it was awesome. The team has been working hard and 
I’m glad it paid off.”Â

Weisenfels wasn’t as pumped. “I cannot believe I changed my line on 
the last lap and got stuck. I rode a good race and I’m very 
disappointed in myself. My Monster/Andrews/Yamaha was on fire today 
and I just picked a bad line and it cost me the win.”Â

Snyder would end up 11th, giving Monster Energy/Andrews/Yamaha its 
best 1-2-3 racer finish of the season.

Next up for the Monster Energy/Andrews/Yamaha team is the April 27 
Loretta Lynn’s Ranch GNCC in Hurricane Mills, Tenn.
