According to the Racer Productions, the Can-Am Grand National Cross Country Series saw almost 18,000 racer entries in 2012, the second most in its 35-year history. The 2012 GNCC season added 1,700 riders from 2011.

Highlighting the healthy 2012 season was the Unadilla GNCC, bringing 1,880 racers to New York’s well-known motocross venue and rewriting the GNCC history books with the highest-ever rider turnout. Also, the Ironman GNCC brought in the largest number of racers the venue has seen in its 18 years on the GNCC schedule.

“We are thankful for the many racers and families that have put their trust in the GNCC Racing team, making this series the most competitive and entertaining off-road motorcycle and ATV series in the world,” says Tim Cotter, GNCC director of events.

The 2012 GNCC champions will be honored at this year’s GNCC Awards Banquet January 11 and 12 at the Waterfront Place Hotel and Convention Center in Morgantown, WV. The Top 10 ATV/UTV racers in each class will receive awards on Friday, January 11 and the bikes will celebrate on Saturday, January 12.
