13-round series kicks off Feb. 28
Racer Productions, producers of the Can-Am Grand National Cross Country (GNCC) Series, have announced the final schedule and locations for the 2009 Can-Am GNCC tour.
The 2009 GNCC dates were originally announced in July 2008, but underwent changes twice to accommodate a shift in the 2009 International Six-Days Enduro schedule. Included in the official locations for the 13-round 2009 tour are two new tracks.
The series begins with a new round at West Gate River Ranch in River Ranch, Fla. Located about an hour outside of Orlando, the River Ranch facility offers amazing amenities for an off-road race, including paved parking and pits, a golf course, horseback riding, fishing, trap and skeet shooting, and even a live rodeo. Racers may camp at the track or enjoy the many high-end accommodations available on site. More information is available at the official West Gate River Ranch site, http://www.wgriverranch.com/ .
Round six also features a new location, with the Titan GNCC in Lafayette, Tenn., which sits just outside of Bowling Green, Ky. The facility managers plan to build brand-new trails for the race, and the land provides plenty of room for the expanding GNCC tour.
The rest of the schedule mimics the successful 2008 campaign, concluding with the Ironman GNCC in Crawfordsville, Ind., in October.
