ITP Race Report: Snowshoe GNCC
Adam McGill finished fifth in the XC1 Pro ATV class.
Team ITP racers won four classes and earned 10 total class podiums at round nine of the 2013 AMSOIL Grand National Cross Country series held in West Virginia. Dave Simmons, Brian Schmid, Mark Batson and Jordan Digby each won their class at a muddy Snowshoe Mountain Resort in Snowshoe, WV, while ITP Pro Adam McGill earned fifth in the XC1 Pro class.
“To come away with four class victories and 10 total podiums at a very rugged, muddy and difficult Snowshoe GNCC course is a nice accomplishment. Unfortunately, a few of our top riders had some issues at this round, but we’re pleased with our season so far going into the GNCC summer break,” says Pat McGuire, public relations / race support. “To have this many racers leading their class in points or owning the most class overall victories is rather impressive. We anxiously await the second portion of the GNCC in September as we make our final push for multiple championships.”
Modeled after the historic Blackwater 100, the Snowshoe GNCC features some of the roughest terrain on the 2013 schedule, offering racers rocks, tight woods, hills and, of course, mud. Heavy rain prior to the event and a downpour during the afternoon session only enhanced Snowshoe’s infamous reputation and made for slick, challenging conditions.
ITP Racing Review: 2011 National MX Season
ITP was once again heavily involved in the ATV MX National Championship Series and would like to recognize the success of its top riders. The following is taken from an ITP press release.
Whether they chose ITP’s Holeshot or QuadCross lines of tires or T-9 Pro Series wheels, these riders demonstrated the talent and commitment it takes to set themselves apart from the competition.
For example, Jeffrey Rastrelli of Palm City, Florida, came out on top of an extremely hard-fought Pro Am Unlimited championship battle. He captured four overall wins in the series’ 11 events, and was in the top three at every race but one. Rastrelli also competed in the Pro Am Production class and finished the season with fourth place in the points, taking one victory and five podiums along the way.
