GBC Tires has announced they will offer $136,500 in Contingency for ATV competitors in the 2009 Can-Am Grand National Cross Country (GNCC) Series.
"These are the people that buy tires, the people who race in the woods and ride in the woods so there is not a better fit for an ATV rider than GNCC," said Kevin Johnston, National Accounts Manager for GBC Motor Sports. "GNCC is a series that has always been there and supported the sport, so why not give back to the series that does that?"
The GBC program is aimed toward the amateur racer who needs the extra support. The XC2 class race winner will receive $300 followed by $250 for second, and $200 for third. The GBC program also offers contingency for youth and utility classes, as well as a variety of amateur classes.

About GNCC Racing: The Can-Am Grand National Cross Country series is America's premier off-road racing series. Founded in 1973, the 13-round championship is produced exclusively by Racer Productions. Cross-country racing is one of the most physically demanding sports in the world. The grueling three-hour GNCC races lead as many as 1,800 riders through tracks ranging in length from eight to 12 miles. With varied terrain, including hills, woods, mud, dirt, rocks and motocross sections, GNCC events are tests of both survival and speed. Riders compete for more than $3 million in prize money, which draws talent from all over the U.S., Europe, Australia and New Zealand. GNCC Racing is televised and airs every Saturday and Thursday on the Versus Network. For more information, please visit www.gnccracing.com.
