Racer Productions, producers of the Can-Am Grand National Cross Country Series, is happy to announce that MotorcycleUSA.com
, title sponsor of the Snowshoe GNCC
, has strengthened their commitment to the tour by adding Title Sponsorship of two additional events, the Yadkin Valley Stomp, in Yadkinville, N.C., and The Titan in Lafayette, T.N., as well as backing the holeshot awards in all four GNCC pro classes, both XC1 and XC2 on bikes and ATVs.
"The 2009 season marked the first year as a sponsor of the GNCC series," said Ken Hutchison, vice president of MotorcycleUSA.com. "We discovered the market to be a perfect fit for our brand. The racers, their families and the spectators bring a lot of energy to these events and provided us with the spark necessary to come back even stronger for 2010."
"We jumped in with both feet last year as the Title Sponsor of the Snowshoe event," continued Hutchison. "The location was fantastic as was the racing, not to mention the exposure MotorcycleUSA received. If you are a fan of off-road racing, I cannot think of a better race to participate in or to spectate. The Snowshoe Resort and the people were very accommodating. The rooms, the restaurants and the nightlife all add up to make this a spectacular experience."
MotorcycleUSA.com will also be the Holeshot Award sponsor for both the XC1 and XC2 motorcycle and ATV classes. Last year, MotorcycleUSA.com
paid $250 to each XC1 motorcycle and ATV Holeshot winner. That total remains for 2010, with an additional $100 to each XC2 motorcycle
holeshot winner at all 13 rounds.
"Sponsoring the Holeshot Award for both the XC1 Bike and ATV classes worked well for us last year," explained Tim Clark, Director of marketing for MotorcycleUSA. "So well, in fact, we will be sponsoring both the XC1 and XC2 classes for 2010."
"The Snowshoe GNCC
was also very successful for us," continued Clark. "It opened enough doors that we decided to up our game to include the Title Sponsorship of both the Yadkin Valley and The Titan events. Helping the riders is one of our main goals and sponsoring the Holeshot Awards and posting large purses like we did with the Snowshoe last year serves a great way to benefit the racers."
The 2010 Can-Am Grand National Cross Country Series kicks off on February 27- March 2 as part of Daytona Bike Week
at the Westgate River Ranch Resort in River Ranch, Florida, with the Parts Unlimited River Ranch GNCC. ATVs race on Sunday, February 28, and bikes race on Tuesday, March 2.
