Fowler looks to extend his “perfect” XC2 season with win #9

GNCC_RacingMorgantown, W. Va. (September 6, 2011) – The 2011 Can-Am Grand National Cross Country Series returns to racing this weekend, September 10 and 11, after a summer break in the schedule. Unadilla Valley Sports Center will play host to round 10 of the series as ATV racers are put to a two-hour test to see who did what over break.

Defending XC1 Champion, Rockstar Makita Suzuki’s Chris Borich has swept five of the first eight rounds of racing, creating a twenty-seven-point lead over Warnert Racing Can-Am’s Adam McGill. McGill has kept Borich honest this year with two race-wins under his belt and with five rounds of racing to go, the 2011 championship will be a hard fought battle. Don’t exclude GT Thunder’s Brian Wolf, who also has a race-win this year, accompanied by podium finishes in rounds seven and nine.

Ballance Racing’s Taylor Kiser and Warnert Racing’s Chris Bithell share a two-point gap for the third place position after eight rounds of racing. Both Kiser and Bithell have finished consistently inside the top five so far and a race-win could boost these guys to the next level as they compete for a national championship position in 2011.

Ballance Racing’s Walker Fowler has dominated the XC2 division this season, sweeping all eight races thus far. With time adjustment, Fowler has finished inside the top ten overall all year, while also capturing his first-ever overall win at round seven.

In addition to a panel of youth classes available on both the ATV and bike schedule, the Unadilla GNCC also offers “Pee Wee” classes to kids ages (4-6). This event is uniquely co-sanctioned with the Western New York Offroad Association (WNYOA), featuring several young racers from the Western New York area who are competing for points in their local series in addition to earning points at a national GNCC event.

ATVs will compete throughout the day on Saturday, September 10, with 50cc youth classes beginning at 2 p.m., and dirt bikes will race all day Sunday, September 11. Local riders are invited to race the event as well, as GNCC racing offers classes for riders of all skill and experience levels. The amateur racer entry fee is $40 and riders can sign up at the track.
