Morgantown, WV (11/11/2016)
- Racer Productions, producer of the AMSOIL Grand
National Cross Country (GNCC) Series presented
by Maxxis, an AMA National Championship, announced
today the 2017 series schedule. For the first
time, the GNCC series will kick off with the Big
Buck GNCC on March 4 and 5 in Union, South Carolina.
This round will also serve as the first race of
the six-round ATV and Bike Micro 50cc championship.

will take place one week later than they are historically
held, offering a unique opportunity to relocate
the season opening round. For over 20 years the
Big Buck Farm has been a stop on the GNCC tour,
and will make the ideal starting location as the
series attempts to break a record setting attendance
for all 13-rounds achieved this past 2016 season.
To help grow this goal, 10 of the 13 rounds will
be held in conjunction with a co-sanctioned partners.
After opening in South Carolina, the series continues
to make stops at many of the traditional favorite
venues. The Rodman Plantation will be buzzing
with ATVs and bikes, as well as UTVs where their
six-round series will begin on March 11 and 12.
"The 2016 season was one of the most successful
years in the history of GNCC Racing," said
GNCC Trail Boss Jeff Russell. "All of our
venues offer a different challenge, and we are
excited to return to all of the tracks that made
the 2016 season so great. As we move into 2017
we are certain that the best racing action will
continue to take place on the GNCC circuit."
