Quick Fill #16: This Week in GNCC April 23, 2020 Welcome to Quick Fill.This unscheduled off time continues as the world progresses through another week of the Covid 19 pandemic, and while this definitely isn’t fun, it will ultimately give us all a new appreciation for getting to go racing when we do return. We’ve got our fingers crossed that a return to racing happens sooner rather than later, but there are a lot of moving pieces that need to happen before we’re able to just jump into hosting a race. It looks as if this pandemic will wind down on a state-to-state basis, and while it looks like a return to racing will ultimately come within the next several weeks, it’s up in the air as to where exactly we will be racing.
Quick Fill #15: This Week in GNCC April 16, 2020 Welcome to Quick Fill.We’re working our way through the current COVID-19 Pandemic and yes, we’re all really looking forward to the end of the whole situation. For now, we have to remain patient and stay busy with other projects; sort of like the Behind the Bars series we’ve been producing the last several weeks. If for some reason you haven’t been following GNCC for a month or so, or just have happened to miss these, we’ve been sitting back with some professional riders and watching past RacerTV episodes with them. It’s been really cool as the insight into these events provided by these guys is awesome, and just watching the past footage is great as well.
Quick Fill #14: This Week in GNCC April 9, 2020 Hey all you cool cats and kittens, welcome to Quick Fill.Just kidding, this week’s edition of Quick Fill is NOT written by Carole Baskin. The weeks continue to roll by in this unscheduled break from racing, and while there hasn’t been much going on in regards to riding, we’re still trying to keep the entertainment rolling. RacerTV’s new Behind the Bars series has been really fun to put together over the last few weeks and we’ve got an awesome episode coming up this week… More on that in a bit! News has been a bit quiet this week but we do have some updates in regards to the rest of the GNCC season, which were issued earlier this week from the RLT.
Quick Fill #13: This Week in GNCC April 2, 2020 Welcome to Quick Fill!We hope you’re all hanging in there as we continue to progress through the current situation in the world. Trust us, we’re wanting to get back to normal just as much as the rest of you but this doesn’t happen overnight. Everyone has their opinions on the situation, but at the moment we just have to bear through it and get to the end as quickly as possible. Unfortunately, due the ongoing concerns we’ve had to postpone the Camp Coker event. You can read the full Competition Bulletin HERE. As for a reschedule date, that will take some time to assess and come up with a final plan, so stay tuned for details there.
Quick Fill #12: This Week in GNCC March 27, 2020 Welcome to Quick Fill.This week’s edition of Quick Fill comes to you from my garage. I’ve been handling the reins of Quick Fill for around five years now, and been contributing to Quick Fill for, well, I honestly can’t remember how long now. I’ve written these contributions in the Racer Productions office, at the track, in hotel rooms, in campers, here and there, I’ve written them just about everywhere. But, this is the first time I’ve ever written this up in my garage. This is actually pretty cool. I’m nestled up between my toolbox, and just a few feet from my DRZ250 and KTM 300XC-W; both of which are begging to be ridden.
Quick Fill #11: This Week in GNCC March 19, 2020 Welcome to Quick Fill.Three rounds are down so far in 2020, and we’re hoping the rest of the season is just as exciting as these first three rounds. Yes, we know there’s a lot of craziness happening right now around the world, and it’s had an effect on GNCC Racing as well. If you haven’t already read the PR, we’ve officially cancelled the next event and will most likely be utilizing the rain date in July. That’s not set in stone just yet, so keep an eye out for updates as soon as we have a final decision. We’ll leave it at that for this week and focus this week’s edition of Quick Fill on the good and entertaining news pertaining to GNCC Racing.
Quick Fill #10: This Week in GNCC March 5, 2020 Welcome to Quick Fill.It’s time to roll into round two! This weekend we take on the Wild Boar GNCC in Palatka, Florida. This can be one of the toughest races of the year and it’s not due to overly technical trail, it’s due to how tough the sand whoops can get as the weekend wears on. Of course, it’s also a really unique and fun event as this is the only time we race in deep sand all season long. Yeah, we do have sand in a few weeks at Camp Coker, but it’s definitely a lot different than the deep Florida sand. We’ll have the low-down on the course coming up a little later in this week’s edition of Quick Fill.
Quick Fill #9: This Week in GNCC February 27, 2020 We are just one week away from racing at the Wild Boar GNCC in Palatka, Florida. Next weekend, the best off-road racers in the world will head to the second round of GNCC Racing for the 2020 season. This weekend everyone is hard at work moving on from round one in South Carolina. Track crew is on the move to Georgia for a little to setup some things, then onto Florida to get the second round of racing ready to go.
Quick Fill #8: This Week in GNCC February 20, 2020 We’re going racing! Big Buck is on for this weekend and you wouldn’t believe how lucky we’ve gotten all week long. People have been wondering how muddy it is and as of Thursday morning, it’s actually really good! There is a bit of rain forecasted throughout the day Thursday but they’ve changed what they’re calling for in terms of the total rainfall amount and it doesn’t sound like it will be very much. We’ve got our fingers crossed that holds true! We’ve dodged bullets all week long with the rain, as each time it’s rained in the area the track has faired pretty well and taken the rainfall really well also.
Quick Fill #7: This Week in GNCC February 13, 2020 Welcome to Quick Fill. The off-season is winding down and this time next week we’ll be full bore heading into round one of the 2020 GNCC Racing season. The first wave of the track crew is heading that way this weekend to get started and we’ve got big plans for a really cool racecourse at Big Buck and we hope that some time off has given the property extra time to heal and possibly produce some serious “hero dirt” as the weekend progresses.
Quick Fill #6: This Week in GNCC February 6, 2020 Welcome to Quick Fill. Wow, this off-season thing is really beginning to wind down, huh? In two weeks, we’ll be on the verge of beginning the opening round of the season in South Carolina. I know I say this every year but it seems like the first part of the off-season took it’s time and this second part of it has really flown by. Actually, at this point next week the GNCC Track Crew will have trucks loaded and will be ready to flock south. We’ve got a great Big Buck course in mind and I know I’m excited to see it all come together! Plus, I’m just excited to get back into the swing of racing all together, and I know a lot of you are saying the exact same thing.
Quick Fill #5: This Week in GNCC January 30, 2020 Welcome to Quick Fill. Three weeks to go. It seems really crazy to say that we’re now only around three weeks away from kicking off the 2020 GNCC Racing season. We’re excited to get it rolling but at the same time there’s still so much to do! However, this is the point where it all starts to come together and before we know it we’ll be throwing the green flag at Big Buck and the 2020 season will officially be underway. I’m getting pumped just thinking about it and I’m sure a lot of you are in the exact same boat.
