MORGANTOWN, W. Va. – As the 2015 AMSOIL Grand National Cross Country Series presented by Maxxis, an AMA National Championship, heads into round three this weekend, a new championship dynamic presents itself in the XC1 Pro ATV class. Adam McGill currently tops the championship standings heading into Saturday’s FMF Steele Creek GNCC and while it’s still early in the season, the pole position is something that McGill has not experienced since his rookie year in 2008.
The ATV Safety Institute will provide free rider training for the second straight year during ATV Safety Week this spring. The ASI is again working with partners across America who will be volunteering to provide free ATV RiderCourses and other safety education June 6–14.
The 2015 racing season for the Mtn. Dew ATV Motocross National Championship, sanctioned by AMA (ATVMX), officially got underway last week with the historic ATV Supercross (ATVSX) from Daytona. The race served as a landmark moment for the 30th anniversary of ATVMX, but more importantly provided a first look into what the championship battle will hold this spring and summer. The entire AMA Pro ATV field will travel to Middle Georgia this weekend for Round 1 action from Lizella’s Echeconnee MX and the Georgia National, presented by Kinsley Powersports, on Saturday, March 21.
WASHINGTON, Ga. – Round two of the 2015 AMSOIL Grand National Cross Country Series presented by Maxxis, an AMA National Championship, took place in Washington, Georgia on Saturday for the annual running of The Maxxis General GNCC. With muddy conditions and rainfall taking place throughout the day, Adam McGill emerged victorious in a two-hour test of survival to put himself into the XC1 Pro points lead for the first time since 2008.
Round one of the 41st annual AMSOIL Grand National Cross Country Series presented by Maxxis, an AMA National Championship, took place just last weekend in sunny Florida. With only a handful of days to recover from last Saturday’s head-to-head battle with Adam McGill, N-Fab/AmPro Yamaha/Maxxis/Lonestar’s Walker Fowler heads into this Saturday’s Maxxis General GNCC with a big victory behind him and a slight upper hand in the National Championship standings.
Just a matter of days remain until the 2015 Mtn. Dew ATV Motocross National Championship, sanctioned by AMA (ATVMX), begins with its inaugural visit to legendary Daytona International Speedway, for the first ever ATV Supercross on Tuesday, March 10. While this one-of-a-kind event signifies one of the most historic moments in ATVMX racing, it’s also the beginning of one of the most anticipated seasons in the championship’s 29-year history.
Minneapolis, March 5, 2015 – Polaris Industries Inc. (NYSE: PII), the leading manufacturer of off-road vehicles (ORVs), today announced a partnership with the Grand National Cross Country Series (GNCC) to sponsor GNCC’s newly-added Single Seat Class.
In January 2014, Polaris introduced the revolutionary 32 horsepower, single-seat Polaris ACE which was designed to combine the size and nimble handling of a Sportsman All-Terrain Vehicle (ATV) with the confidence and comfort of RANGER and RZR side-by-sides. The vehicle generated so much interest that six months later, the company introduced a second model with a 45 horsepower ProStar™ 570 engine. The ACE architecture appealed to a wide-variety of riders, including racers, which was demonstrated last fall when GNCC and Polaris offered an exhibition ACE Editor’s Race at the Ironman, in Crawfordsville, Indiana.
IRVINE, Calif., Mar. 3, 2015 – All-terrain vehicle injuries have declined significantly from 2007 through 2013 according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC). The CPSC 2013 Annual Report of ATV Deaths and Injuries, released today, reports: “When considering the entire seven years together (2007−2013), CPSC staff found a statistically significant decreasing linear trend [for ATV-related injuries].”
The report also found that estimated ATV-related fatalities have declined each year from 2007 through 2013, but noted that data collection for 2010-2013 is ongoing.
The 2015 season of the AMSOIL Grand National Cross Country Series presented by Maxxis, an AMA National Championship, will begin on March 7 with the Moose Racing Wild Boar in Palatka, Florida. As in years past, Rocky Mountain ATV/MC will have strong presence as a GNCC sponsor and through related programs.
Warn Industries encourages customers to utilize their consumer rebate program that runs through April 30th. This is a great opportunity to upgrade to the brand new ZEON Platinum winch with a wireless control and remote clutch engagement. With Spring in the air, it is time to think about getting all of your off-road and work vehicles ready for the trails, hunts and overland adventures.
