Strong results in GNCC, AMA ATV Motocross and WORCS
With Can-Am racers running in three national race series, this past weekend was a busy one for the race teams. In Tennessee at round six of the GNCC series, Team Warnert / Can-Am rider Bryan Buckhannon piloted his Can-Am Outlander 800R to the morning overall victory just ahead of his teammate Michael Swift who was also riding an Outlander 800R. Both riders finished in front of 240 other ATV racers at the end of the two-hour race.
Nine hours away in Illinois, Can-Am DS 450 racers contested round five of the AMA ATV Motocross National series. Cody Miller of Team Warnert / Can-Am took second overall at the end of both pro motos; this is Miller’s first time racing his DS 450 to the Pro podium. In all, five of the top-10 finishers were riding DS 450 ATVs.
“With the results we had this weekend in three race series – four podiums total including a GNCC overall – everyone at Can-Am is extremely happy,” says Delton Bohlman, racing manager for Can-Am ATVs at BRP. “The ATV racing season is in full swing and we are charging hard for race wins and hard-fought results.”
Out west in the WORCS series, Team Motoworks / Can-Am racer Josh Frederick had a tough Pro race as he crashed hard twice. Despite this, he was able to power his DS 450 to second place in the Pro class.
The next GNCC race will be Mountain Ridge GNCC near Somerset, Pa. on May 16, while the next AMA ATV Motocross is the Steel City National near Delmont, Pa. on May 23 and 24. Round five of the WORCS championship is on June 6 and 7 near Toutle, Wash.
