ATV racers wrapped up the grueling 13-round Grand National Cross Country series this pas weekend in Hurricane Mills, Tenn. and Team ITP racers finished the season in style.

Dave Simmons ( Yamaha) raced to his ninth overall morning race victory and his 13th straight win in the Super Senior 45+ class. He’s the Muhammad Ali of amateur cross country ATV racing.

Glenn McConnell (Yamaha) won the finale by eight and a half minutes. His seventh victory of the season was just enough to secure the Masters (50+) class championship.
