GNCC spectators are a unique bunch. They’re known for getting a little bit rowdy and will occasionally find themselves in harms way. That being said, and as you can see in this video, they are always eager to lend a helping hand to a struggling racer. This GNCC ATV Hillclimb is a perfect representation of how crazy, chaotic and awesome a GNCC race can be.
