GBC Motorsports Racers Clinch 5 GNCC Championships

Anaheim, CA (11/14/2016) - As the 2016 GNCC Racing season came to a close in Crawfordsville, IN, GBC Motorsports celebrated the many outstanding performances by sponsored athletes. With countless class race wins across the 13 rounds of racing, GBC Motorsports racers capped off the great season with five class championships in GNCC ATV and UTV competition.

The atmosphere was electric at the final round, the Ironman GNCC. With 2400 racers and over 20,000 spectators on hand, it was officially the largest off-road race in United States history. Several GBC Motorsports racers rose to the occasion, laying down outstanding performances on the biggest stage to date.

Landon Wolfe continued his upward trajectory, finishing the season with a career high 3rd place podium finish in both the XC1 Pro class as well as the PM Overall. Meanwhile, Marty Christofferson won the XC2 Pro-Am class on his way to the 7th place Overall finish. Both riders found the traction they were looking for with GBC’s Ground Buster III 2-ply rear tires and XC-Master front tires. Landon’s impressive performances stacked up to a season-end rank of 7th place in the class, while Christofferson narrowly missed out on the class championship to finish 2nd.

Matt Lindle, a solid contender each round in the XC2 Pro-Am class, jumped up to XC1 competition for the first time in his career. Lindle has had some high moments this season, hitting the podium twice in XC2, but the Ironman would prove to be his biggest race yet. Lindle stunned the crowd with a 5th place finish in the XC1 class and 5th place Overall, a huge accomplishment in one’s first Pro level race!

Longtime GBC racer Jeff Pickens notched yet another Vet A class win, and finished 3rd on the season despite missing some races. Brian Filicky also topped the podium in Crawfordsville, and finished in 2nd place in the Junior B class.

Other notable performances in the final round included a 3rd place podium performance by Kara Merritt in the WXC class, a 4th place finish in Vet B by John Sousa, a 5th place College A finish by Nick Royalty and a 5th place effort by Jimmy Mauger in Junior A.

Richard Taylor finished the season strong with a 2nd place finish in the Masters class, and was crowned champion after his consistent top finishes. Fellow GBC racer Justin Wood also secured the class title for the 4x4 Senior class, while Jeff Miller ended 2016 at the top of the Junior A ranks.

Some racers, like Vet B class champions Cory Blinkiewicz, used the final round as an opportunity to try out a different class. Blinkiewicz jumped up to the Vet A class for the final round and laid down an 11th place performance to go along with his class title.

Dave Plavi put together a great season in the UTV XC2 class, winning several rounds on his way to the class championship. Josh Davis finished the season in 2nd in the UTV XC3 class.
