Morgantown, W. Va. (October 27, 2011) – Racer Productions, producers of the Can-Am Grand National Cross Country Series, and BRP Can-Am are excited to announce Sunshine “Sonny” Willis, of Indianapolis, Indiana, as the winner of a brand-new 2011 Can-Am Outlander 650 XT. Can-Am Race Manager, Jimmie O’Dell, drew Sunny’s name during the ATV podium celebration at Saturday’s Ironman GNCC.
Several thousand GNCC fans entered the season-long sweepstakes at the first twelve rounds of the series, including the Amsoil Ironman GNCC, where the drawing took place.
“I am super excited to win the Can-Am Outlander 650, it’s a pretty cool ATV – I like it a lot!” said Sonny Willis. “I’m probably going to let the family have fun with it, it’s a great all-terrain vehicle and we will get a lot of use out of it! Thanks to GNCC and Can-Am for the opportunity to finally own an ATV to go riding with my friends!”
The Can-Am Outlander sweepstakes is another link in a strong partnership between GNCC Racing and BRP, which includes the title sponsorship of the GNCC Racing series and continued support of GNCC television coverage on VERSUS, soon to be NBC Sports, airing weekly on Sunday evenings.
“On behalf of everyone at BRP, I’d like to congratulate Mr. Willis on being the lucky winner drawn at the Ironman!” said Chaz Rice, Manager, Media and PR, Can-Am. “We hope he enjoys his Outlander 650 XT ATV. In fact, we know he will enjoy its class-leading power and comfortable ride!”
The Can-Am Grand National Cross Country Series continues with the season finale double header November 4-6 at Loretta Lynn’s Ranch in Hurricane Mills, Tennessee. Motorcycles will race on Friday, November 4, and again on Sunday November 6. ATVs will keep their normal Saturday race-program on November 5.
