GNCC Racing Announces Multi-Year Deals with Six Industry Partners
Yamaha, Rocky Mtn., FMF, Dunlop, Cometic and GBC Back for 2022+
MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (February 9, 2022) – The Grand National Cross Country (GNCC) Series presented by Specialized, an AMA National Championship, is excited to welcome back Yamaha Racing, Rocky Mountain ATV/MC, FMF Racing, Dunlop Motorcycle Tires, Cometic Gaskets and GBC Powersport Tires with multi-year agreements that will help expand America’s premier off-road racing series for the foreseeable future.
The series welcomes back Yamaha along with their extensive 2022 contingency program, providing over $480,000 back to motorcycle and ATV racers in the GNCC Series. Yamaha will once again hold the event titles at Snowshoe and Ironman and will be hosting the GNCC University at Snowshoe, with more information becoming available at a later date. Yamaha continues their support throughout the series and amongst the communities by continuing to make a generous donation at Ironman’s GNCC towards the Montgomery County Free Clinic for every class win at the event and National Championship earned in 2022.
Rocky Mountain ATV/MC continues to put money back into the pockets of our GNCC racers with the continuation of the Fast Track Race Gas program. Rocky Mountain ATV/MC will continue provide one $20 e-credit per rider, per event. You will be emailed each time a credit is in your account, if you do not have an account and email will be sent to you to create one. Last year there were 12,484 pre-entered riders, with $249,680 being gifted back to those GNCC racers from the Rocky Mountain ATV/MC Fast Track Pre-Registration Program.
FMF has been a longstanding partner of the series and continues that partnership with an all-new multi-year deal. For nearly fifty years FMF has remained a popular exhaust in motorcycle and ATV racing with countless exhausts available. FMF will continue to be the official XC3 125 Pro-Am class sponsor and be onsite at select GNCC events in 2022, so be sure to stop by their setup on vendor row.
Almost anyone who rides a motorcycle recognizes the name Dunlop as they hold numerous championships not only in the GNCC Series, but within motocross and other off-road racing series. Dunlop continues their support of GNCC Racing and will continue to have their setup within the MotoTees trailer by Rider Registration at the events. Make sure you swing by their setup to see the latest motorcycle tire technology and more.
Cometic continues to be a worldwide supplier of gaskets and engine sealing solutions for the powersports industry. Cometic continues to support race series, and teams across the country with one goal in mind, championships. They share their passion with the racing community, which is shown through their committed partnership, providing technical inspection stickers to ensure riders have had their machines and helmets checked before racing.
GBC Powersport Tires has become a popular ATV tire throughout the GNCC circuit as they continue to provide a high quality and innovative tire. GBC established themselves in 1995, and they have continued to grow through the powersports industry ever since. GBC also continues their support as a Moto Hero sponsor, giving away a set of Kanati Lite truck tires (valued over $1,000) to each selected Moto Hero throughout the season.
The 2022 GNCC series starts February 19 and 20, at the popular Big Buck Farm in Union, South Carolina for the VP Racing Fuels Big Buck GNCC. After round one the series continues along the East Coast before concluding in Crawfordsville, Indiana with the Yamaha Racing Ironman GNCC on October 22 and 23.
