Heading to GNCC race this weekend
Pat Brown won the ATV portion of the Montreal Supercross Sept. 20 at Olympic Stadium. The ITP Tires/Moose Racing Pro AMA/ATVA National Championship regular beat out an 18-quad field to win the special event north of the border.
Yamaha’s Brown took the top qualifying spot and came out of the gate third for the final. Muscling his way through the field, Brown took the lead on the first lap and fought off Canadian Greg Gee (Team Epic Can-Am) for the victory. Harold Goodman (American Honda/Houser Racing) finished third.
Brown said he hopes the victory will lead to positive results as he heads to the Can-Am Grand National Cross Country (GNCC) race this weekend at Unadilla Valley Sports Center in New York.
“I really like Supercross racing,” says Brown. “I knew we could win all year in the ATV Motocross Series, but we had a lot of bad luck. This win definitely helps. I’m going to the Unadilla GNCC this weekend, so hopefully we can carry the momentum into there.”
Brown, one of seven Americans in the field, was pleased to bring the honor back the United States.
“It’s great,” says Brown. “The guys up there really wanted it. It was really the only time they got to race the top ATV riders in the world in front of their home crowd. Then again, everyone wants to win every race.”
