Wiseco Performance Products Returns to
2009 Racer Productions Family of Events

Morgantown, W. Va. (February 16, 2009) -- Wiseco Performance Products has renewed its relationship with the Racer Productions family of events and series, including the Can-Am Grand National Cross Country Series, the Air Nautiques/AMA Amateur Nationals at Loretta Lynn's, and the High Point and Steel City rounds of the AMA Pro Motocross Championship.

Wiseco is the longest-running sponsor of Racer Productions events, as the relationship between the two companies began in the 1970s. Wiseco was also the first title sponsor of the GNCC Series, which was originally known as the Wiseco 100 Miler Series.

"We're humbled to have long standing supporters like Wiseco that back our events year after year and through thick and thin, especially in economic times like we are experiencing now," said Carrie Coombs Russell of Racer Productions. "We are grateful for their support and everything they do for off road racing."

The 2009 Can-Am Grand National Cross Country Series begins with The Parts Unlimited River Ranch GNCC in River Ranch, FL on February 28- March 3.

About GNCC Racing: The Can-Am Grand National Cross Country series is America's premier off-road racing series. Founded in 1973, the 13-round championship is produced exclusively by Racer Productions. Cross-country racing is one of the most physically demanding sports in the world. The grueling three-hour GNCC races lead as many as 1,800 riders through tracks ranging in length from eight to 12 miles. With varied terrain, including hills, woods, mud, dirt, rocks and motocross sections, GNCC events are tests of both survival and speed. Riders compete for more than $3 million in prize money, which draws talent from all over the U.S., Europe, Australia and New Zealand. Beginning on April 4th, 2009, the GNCC Racing Series will hit the air on television on the Versus Network, with shows broadcasting every Saturday and Tuesday. For more information, please visit
