GNCC Racing Invites Racers to Take Part
in West Virginia Motorsports Day on February 24
MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (February 8, 2023) – Racer Productions Inc., producer of the Grand National Cross Country Series presented by Specialized, an AMA National Championship, (GNCC Racing) is excited to be part of the West Virginia Motorsports Day at the State Capitol in Charleston, West Virginia on Friday, February 24.
GNCC Racing would like to invite all racers to attend Motorsports Day at the State Capitol. The series also encourages all racers to wear their racing and/or team gear to the event. The day will kick off at 9:00 am at the Upper House and Senate Rotunda with a luncheon reception being held at 1 pm in the Cultural Center.
“This is a great opportunity for our racers and their families to lobby for the sport they love and bring awareness to our elected officials,” said Tim Cotter, GNCC Event Director. “GNCC Racing and Motocross brings hundreds of thousands of dollars to our state economy and is important to the communities that host our events. We are challenging all of our racers to join us at the West Virginia State Capitol to promote the sport we all love.”
West Virginia Motorsports Day celebrates all motorsports venues, manufacturers and businesses in West Virginia. The event is organized by the West Virginia Motorsports Committee, which was created back in March 2021 to promote motorsports in the state of West Virginia.
Racers are asked to RSVP with GNCC Racing by clicking the button below and filling out the form. Racers attending the event will get to experience a diverse range of West Virginia Motorsports from off-road, sports cars to dirt track racing and more.
It is important for GNCC Racing to take part in this event due to the series history and headquarters being located in Morgantown, West Virginia. Back in the mid-1970’s, GNCC founder Dave Coombs stumbled onto the small town of Davis, West Virginia and realized it would be the perfect spot to hold a motorcycle race. He called the race the Blackwater 100. The Blackwater 100 would become legendary and was deemed "America's Toughest Race." As his company, Racer Productions, grew, Dave and his wife, Rita, began holding additional 100-mile-long events, and the series became known as the Wiseco 100 Miler Series, and then the Grand National Cross Country Series.
