FRE Expands FRE KTM GNCC ATV Team to include Angel Atwell

and Josh Kirkland alongside Adam McGill

Farr Racing Enterprises (FRE) is proud to announce the expansion of the FRE KTM GNCC ATV Team for the 2009 season.  Angel Atwell, Women's A, and Josh Kirkland, XC-2 Pro-Am, will join Adam McGill to contend the thirteen-race GNCC ATV series.  It is an impressive combination of top riders contending in three different classes and chasing three Championships.

West Virginia's Adam McGill completed the 2008 GNCC season in the top three of the Pro class behind Yamaha's Bill Balance and Suzuki's Chris Borich.  McGill finished the season with an impressive four wins.  McGill is looking forward to his second season on the KTM ATV and has set his sights on the Pro Championship.

Pennsylvania's Angel Atwell, finished in the runner-up position in the GNCC Women's A class this past season to seven-time Champion, Traci Cecco.  Atwell won five races and finished a mere two points behind Cecco for the Championship.  Atwell believes that FRE KTM will make the difference this year.

West Virginia's Josh Kirkland won the last two races of the season to finish third in the XC-2 Pro-Am class.  Kirkland has progressed through the amateur ranks and proves to be quite a talent as last year was his first season in XC-2.  Kirkland also earned fifteenth overall, ahead of many Pro riders.  Kirkland has his sights set on the top of XC-2.

Thirteen-time ATV Champion, Tim Farr will continue to manage the FRE KTM GNCC ATV Team in 2009.  Farr is confident and excited about the season.  "FRE KTM is proud to have McGill, Atwell, and Kirkland on the team.  You will be seeing a lot of orange on the podium this season.  We have a real chance at three Championships here" said Farr.
