Rnd 7 - Weekend Warrior Spartan ATVs: Ballance Ballance Ballance June 5, 2008 The competition will have to say wait until next year (again) if they plan on Bill Ballance taking it easy on them. The eight-time Can-Am GNCC Champion said he would focus on having fun this year. But just past the halfway point, it's clear that not only is Ballance still trying, he might actually be more serious than ever.

Rnd 6 - Wiseco John Penton ATVs: Ballance's Battle May 14, 2008 They say you lose flexibility as you get older, but Bill Ballance sure seems to be made of rubber. Knock the man down and he just bounces back up harder. Once again, the GNCC Champion has taken a bad start to the seasonï¿½and rumors that his time had finally passedï¿½and turned it around by building a win streak.
Rnd 6 - Wiseco John Penton Bikes: Mudder's Day May 13, 2008 This one was as bad as bad can be. The Wiseco John Penton GNCC usually features dust or mud, but past mud races at this track were nothing in comparison to the 2008 version. The course was already pretty slick on Saturdays, but then it got really, really bad after it rained all night. Then rained even harder on Sunday. It was wet, it was wild. Here's the bike story

Rnd 5 - Acerbis Loretta Lynn's Bikes: Knight, DuVall April 29, 2008 It would seem like nothing can surprise Red Bull KTMï¿½s David Knight and Am-Pro Yamahaï¿½s Thad DuVall. They took their fourth win in five 2008 races by topping the XC1 Pro and XC2 Pro Lites classes at the Acerbis Loretta Lynnï¿½s GNCC. But both surprised themselves with their performances, proving that anything can happen in a three-hour off-road race.
Rnd 4 - Pirelli Big Buck ATVs: McGill Again April 15, 2008 After FRE KTM's Adam McGill led the last two Can-Am GNCC races from wire to wire, the only real obstacle left to proving his "real deal" status was to win one from behind. Lo and behold, the West Union, West Virginia rider did just that at the Pirelli Big Buck GNCC
Rnd 4 - Pirelli Big Buck Bikes: Knight, Gibson Conquer April 14, 2008 The Can-Am GNCC Series offers up three-hour races, and that's a good thing if you're Red Bull KTM's David Knight or Monster Energy/Andrews Yamaha's Dustin Gibson. Both riders spent the early moments of the Pirelli Big Buck GNCC fighting through traffic, but both emerged victorious.
