The 2014 AMSOIL Grand National Cross Country Series presented by Maxxis and sanctioned by AMA kicks off March 8 and 9 in Bunnell, Florida, for the inaugural running of the Moose Racing Mud Mucker GNCC.

Buffalo, NY: Dunlop’s new Geomax® MX32TM and MX52TM tires have dominated AMA Supercross and Motocross, and these next-generation tires have now made their mark on the international FIM MXGP Motocross World Championship. This series is especially competitive for tire manufacturers, with five brands actively competing. Yet it was Dunlop that came out on top at the opening round, and decisively so.
Formerly known as MX1, the MXGP series features 450cc four-stroke machines, while the 250cc class retains its MX2 title. The opening round in Losail, Qatar, saw Monster Energy Kawasaki’s Gautier Paulin take the overall win (3-1) aboard his KX450F, while Max Nagl followed right behind to earn second overall (1-4) riding his Team HRC Honda CRF450R—with both Dunlop-sponsored riders using race-spec MX32 tires front and rear. Paulin’s Monster Energy Kawasaki teammate Steven Frossard finished a strong fourth on the day aboard the same tires, barely missing a podium sweep for Dunlop.

Corona, CA – Though long-term planning and organization is usually imperative for racing in Baja, the THR Motorsports / Monster Energy / Precision Concepts Kawasaki team, presented by Hoosier Precision Machining, didn’t have that luxury for the 28th Tecate SCORE San Felipe 250 on Saturday, March 1st, in San Felipe, Baja California, Mexico.
Neither Baja nor mother nature could stop the Galindo Motorsports #7 from charging through the pack at the Tecate SCORE San Felipe 250 this past weekend. A last-minute course change due to an overnight winter storm which made the summit section impassable played well into the Galindo teams hands.
