Unadilla GNCC Breaks Record for Racer Participation
An amazing 1,971 ATV and motorcycle racers competed this past weekend at the recent Unadilla GNCC in New Berlin, NY, setting a record for the 38-year-old series.
This comes after the highly successful season in 2012, where the Grand National Cross Country Series generated the second largest total of rider entries in the history of the series. With over 10% increase in participation from the previous year, the 2012 season nearly topped the all-time high mark set in 2007.
“I am very proud of this GNCC milestone,” says Rita Coombs, president of Racer Productions and organizer of GNCC Racing. “Our team at Racer Productions has worked very hard to keep growing the series, while sticking to the core values that Big Dave [Coombs] put in place years ago.”
