Morgantown, W. Va. (December 23, 2011) - Just in time for the holidays, Racer Productions is pleased to announce the locations for the 2012 Can-Am Grand National Cross Country Series. America’s largest off-road racing series will once again kick off its 13-round schedule at Westgate River Ranch Resort in River Ranch, Fla., coinciding with Daytona Bike Week March 10-13.
Highlighting the 2012 calendar is the addition of three all-new venues in Indiana, Kentucky and West Virginia-giving racers the opportunity to compete on fresh soil next season.
“We’re really excited to introduce three new venues to the GNCC schedule next year,” said GNCC Trail Boss, Jeff Russell. “Since the Loretta’s GNCC, we’ve been traveling all over to find new venues for our GNCC Racers and I think the fresh trail and new scenery will add a whole new level of excitement for everyone.”
The series returns to many GNCC favorites in 2012, including Snowshoe Resort, Unadilla MX, Ironman and Loretta Lynn’s, which will once again serve as the season finale.
A special weekend format will take place at Loretta Lynn Ranch in November, in order to accommodate the 2012 ISDE and National Enduro schedules. Motorcycles will compete throughout the day on Saturday and ATV racing will follow on Sunday-atypical from the other 12 rounds of racing where ATVs compete on Saturday and motorcycles on Sunday.
