Tune-In Alert: GNCC Racing on RacerTV.com
and NBCSN This Weekend, June 23 and 24

This weekend do not miss GNCC Live on RacerTV.com from the 2018 AMSOIL Grand National Cross Country (GNCC) Series, an AMA National Championship, round 9 – AMSOIL Snowshoe from Snowshoe, WV. The live broadcast starts Saturday, June 23 at 1 p.m. ET for pro ATV racing. Then Sunday, June 24 at 1 p.m. ET tune in for pro bike racing.

Walker Fowler is heading into this weekend’s race after earning his fifth win of the season just two weeks ago in New York. Fowler continues to lead the way in the National Championship standings, and he is once again looking to conquer the mountain like he did at last year’s event. However, anything is possible in GNCC Racing, and Fowler knows that all too well also as he has only managed to earn the overall win twice at Snowshoe.

Adam McGill is no stranger to the center of the podium at Snowshoe, considering he has won the event four times. McGill is a West Virginia native; therefore, he will be competing on his home turf hoping to utilize that as an advantage and earn his fifth Snowshoe overall win.

This Saturday, June 23, the world’s fastest off-road ATV racers will take to Snowshoe Mountain for the 12th Annual AMSOIL Snowshoe GNCC. Shaped after the famed Blackwater 100 race, the Snowshoe GNCC in West Virginia is known as one of the most challenging races on the circuit. This year it serves as the ninth round of the 2018 AMSOIL Grand National Cross Country (GNCC) Series, an AMA National Championship.

Then on Sunday Kailub Russell remains in control of the points lead after earning his first Tomahawk GNCC win two weeks ago in New York. As the series heads into the final round before GNCC Summer Break, K. Russell is looking to earn his seventh win of the season.

Sitting 24 points behind K. Russell is Thad Duvall. After earning two wins thus far in the season, Duvall has been proving that he is capable of becoming a National Champion. After finishing in the third-place position in New York, Duvall is eager to battle for his third overall win in his home state of West Virginia.

Last year’s Snowshoe Winner AmPro Yamaha’s Ricky Russell did not have the start to the season he hoped for. As mechanical issues left him out of the top 10 at the first four rounds, R. Russell rebounded for a third place finish at Camp Coker. This Sunday R. Russell is hoping to conquer the mountain once again and stand in the center of the stage.
