The Factory FMF/KTM teammates make up all but one of the overall wins this season, but it’s Russell who tops the field with a total of six wins through the first eleven rounds. Russell has continued to pick up momentum in the second half of the season with a five-race winning streak, but his teammate Mullins has shown no mercy during the three-hour competitions. Mullins holds four overall wins and a slew of hard-fought second place finishes, where he sits seven points behind Russell in the overall standings.

GNCC-Goes-Pink-9-27-13MORGANTOWN, W. Va. – In honor of October’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Round 13 of the 2013 AMSOIL Grand National Cross Country Series will once again “go pink” for the 19th Annual AMSOIL Ironman GNCC. Taking place October 26 and 27 in Crawfordsville, Ind., the season finale has become more than just a race, as nearly 10,000 spectators are expected to attend what has arguably become the largest fall festival in Montgomery County.

The goal of Ironman’s pink-effort is to raise awareness and funds locally for breast cancer care and research, while also bringing the GNCC Racing community together for a cause that transcends racing. The pink livery will make a dynamic contrast to the woods, hills and mud of the iconic Ironman GNCC.

GNCC-Off-Road-Series-9-20-13MORGANTOWN, W.Va. – The 2013 AMSOIL Grand National Cross Country Series makes its debut in Northwest Pennsylvania this weekend, September 21 and 22, for the inaugural running of the Car-Mate Gusher GNCC. Taking place on the property of Foxburg’s picturesque RiverStone Estate, Round 11 of the 13-race series will showcase all-new terrain with freshly cut trail alongside the wild and scenic Allegheny and Clarion River.

In addition to the excitement and anticipation of this first time event, all attention will be turned to the racetrack Sunday afternoon as the battle continues to unfold for the coveted 2013 National Championship. Only two points separate Factory FMF/KTM teammates Kailub Russell and Charlie Mullins in the overall standings as the series heads into unexplored territory for the eleventh round of racing. As the 2011 XC1 Pro Champion, Mullins has experience on his side but the two-time XC2 Pro Lites Champion, Russell, has his sights set on his first career XC1 crown this season. Russell holds the points lead heading into Sunday’s race, with an impressive four-race winning streak behind him.

Russell-GNCC-9-6-13MORGANTOWN, W.Va. – Following a two-month summer break, the 2013 AMSOIL Grand National Cross Country Series returns to racing this Sunday, September 8, for the ninth running of the Can-Am Unadilla GNCC, held at the legendary Unadilla Raceway in New Berlin, Ny. Sunday’s three-hour afternoon race will showcase an exciting battle for the XC1 Class championship between Factory FMF/KTM teammates Charlie Mullins and Kailub Russell, as only three points separate the duo heading into Round 10.

At four wins apiece, Mullins and Russell have gone head-to-head all season but after approximately 27 grueling hours of racing, Mullins holds a slight points lead through the first nine rounds. Mullins, the 2011 XC1 Champion, is working towards a second-straight title this season while Russell is seizing every opportunity to dethrone his teammate and capture his first-career XC1 championship. Russell heads into Round 10 with a three-race winning streak behind him and all the confidence to capture a fourth victory in New York.

Shenandoah Honda/’s Thad DuVall is the only other rider besides Mullins and Russell to capture an overall victory this season. In addition to his Round 5 win, DuVall has put forth a consistent string of finishes but unfortunate mechanical issues caused the West Virginia native to forfeit valuable championship points along the way. DuVall currently holds fourth place in the overall standings.

Borich-GNCC-Off-Road-6-27-13MORGANTOWN, W. Va. – Round 9 of the 2013 AMSOIL Grand National Cross Country Series heads to Snowshoe Mountain Resort this weekend for the toughest, most spectacular and most unique race on the whole circuit, the AMSOIL Snowshoe GNCC. Four-time ATV champion Chris Borich leads the field into the final race before the summer break, but Saturday’s two-hour battle through the grueling woods of Snowshoe Mountain has the potential to shake things up in the XC1 class.

Set in the upscale ski village of West Virginia’s largest ski resort, this weekend’s Snowshoe GNCC promises to resurrect pieces of XC history with its live engine starts across the paved road located in the heart of Snowshoe’s village. The in town starts pay homage to the Blackwater 100-the original GNCC-where groups of five racers take off in five-second increments, making for a spectacular scene.

Because of the unique start and technical racecourse, the Snowshoe GNCC has been known to throw a twist in the race action. In fact, there have been three different overall winners at Snowshoe in the last four years. Maxxis-backed Chris Borich captured a hard-fought win over Reliable Tool Supply/Maxxis rider Chris Bithell in 2012, while Lonestar/Precision/ITP’s Adam McGill watched from the sidelines with a recovering injury. However, McGill took the Snowshoe victory in 2011 and that, coupled with his overall win at the previous round this season, could give McGill the momentum needed to make it two-in-a-row this Saturday.

Swift-Action-GNCC-Off-Road-6-20-13Team UXC racing added one more race to the history books this past weekend at the Parts Unlimited Mountaineer Run in Masontown West Virginia. The heat and dry conditions made for a very interesting race but for the Shelbyville Tennessee race team victory was in the air! Walking the track on Friday has become a intricate part of the teams routine and mentally noting the rocky sections in particular.

Getting the day started off of the second row Team UXC racings Michael Swift was able to grab the holeshot off the start and led his class into the woods at the Masontown WV event. “We were rolling on the first lap and even caught the open class and were able to get around them before our first pass through the scoring tents.” Swift has found some amazing speed in the last few years and the determination to improve his performance every race has really began to show. Passing the lead back and forth with a fellow racer Swift would find a rock that stopped his Team UXC Can-Am Renegade right in its tracks on the third lap that sent him over the bars.

GNCC-Team-UXC-5-8-13The east coast has received its fair share of rain over the last few weeks and for the fifth round of the GNCC racing series in Park City Kentucky it would be no different. The Team UXC racing crew rolled into the track with a precise plan just in case the weather did not cooperate. On Friday after scouting the entire track Michael Swift knew it could get messy if the predicted rain came through. By Saturday morning it had rained most all night and was still coming down for the day of racing.

“Over the years I have put together a few key things to keep me on the machine and moving forward in really nasty riding conditions,” stated Swift. Getting a good grip on the bars and keeping your vision clear is vital and this is just a piece of the plan Swift had put together to take on his U2 class competition. Lining up on the second row behind the Open 4X4 class the U2 challengers had just a few riders to compete with on the first lap. Swift was able to fall into the line in second off the start and worked his way into the number on spot in his class before the second lap. “I had actually taken over the lead in my class before the second mile mark on the first lap but slid into a tree and two riders were able to pass me.  My Rox Speed FX hand guards kept the mud off of my hands so I could drive the UXC racing Can-Am Renegade Xxc,” noted Swift. Team UXC also attributes their finishes to the use of the Outerwears radiator covers. These covers keep the mud off of the radiator so it can stay cool during the harsh conditions. This three-lap race took everything it could from many racers as thirty-nine of the 247 entries in the morning race had dropped out.

Morgantown, W. Va. (November 6, 2012) – This season marked an incredible year of racing in the 2012 Can-Am Grand National Cross Country Series. The 13-round series wrapped up last weekend at the Loretta Lynn’s Ranch in Hurricane Mills, Tenn., where AmPro Yamaha’s Paul Whibley secured his second XC1 Pro class title, while KR4 Performance’s Jason Thomas clinched his first XC2 Pro Lites title on the motorcycle side. While XC1 Pro ATV champion Chris Borich wrapped up his fourth consecutive title earlier in the season, Tireballs-backed Patrick McGuire secured his first XC2 Pro Am championship at the season finale.

But the XC1 and XC2 class champions are just part of the 2012 GNCC Championship roll call. In GNCC, the afternoon race consists of not only Pro and Pro Am classes, but also the “A” and “B” classes – making for a fast-paced afternoon of racing from the first row to the last. On ATV’s, Brycen Neal claimed the competitive College A (16-21) class title by only six points over Landon Wolfe, finishing as the Top Amateur of the afternoon race. Other “A” class champions include Fred Marley in Junior A (22+), Todd Demaree in Vet A (28+) and Senior A (38+) champion Tom Wright.
