After revealing the full ATV Series Schedule earlier this week, officials have announced the Side-by-Side (UTV) racing schedule for the 2012 Can-Am Grand National Cross Country Series. The six-round UTV series kicks off Saturday, Mar. 17 in Washington, Ga. at The General GNCC and wraps up Saturday, Oct. 20 at the crowd favorite Ironman GNCC in Crawfordsville, Ind.
UTVs compete for one hour on a specially designed course throughout the woods at select GNCC events during the season. UTV competition begins at 4:30 p.m., following the ATV racing program on Saturday afternoon.
“The 2012 UTV schedule is fairly similar to what we ran last season,” says GNCC Trail Boss, Jeff Russell. “By adding the new West Virginia round and John Penton, the UTV schedule is evenly spread throughout the GNCC season and gives competitors time in between rounds to prepare their machines.”
In addition to the two new locations for 2012, UTV racers will return to series favorites such as The General, Big Buck, Powerline Park and Ironman. As part of GNCC Racing’s RacerTV package, highlights of Side-by-Side racing will air on NBC Sports in 2012. Exact air times for RacerTV ‘s coverage of GNCC Racing on NBC Sports will be available after the first of the year.
