ITP-GNCC-Race-Report-5-8-13Ontario, California, May 8, 2013 - Team ITP racers earned four class victories and seven total podiums at round five of the AMSOIL Grand National Cross Country course in a rain-soaked Park City, Ky. ITP racers won one afternoon age class, two age classes in the morning and a youth class overall. At the Best In The Desert Silver State 300 in Nevada, Team Murray Motorsports / Del Amo Motorsports piloted its ITP-clad side-by-side to third overall on the 1900 class podium.

“GNCC courses are tough enough without mud, but when you factor in heavy rain, slippery, power-robbing mud and everything that comes with it, the 2013 Mammoth GNCC was a very challenging event. Considering the conditions and the fact that 15 percent of racers DNF’d, I’m very pleased that we won four classes, had two racers finish in the overall top 10 in the morning and grabbed a total of seven podiums,” said Pat McGuire, Public Relations / Race Support. “The Murray brothers had a another good showing in the Nevada desert, earning third using the new ITP UltraCross R-Spec 30-inch tires in the BITD SxS Pro ranks.”
