Morgantown, WV – March 1, 2011 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – The Grand National Cross Country Series is proud to announce its series partners for 2011. These key partnerships allow Racer Productions to produce America’s Premier Off-Road Racing Series as well as feature 31 episodes of GNCC racing as part of the Racer TV series on VERSUS network.
Can-Am will return as the title sponsor of the GNCC Series for the fifth year in a row. In addition, feature sponsors for 2011 include Amsoil, FMF, ITP, Maxxis, Moose Racing, MotoSport.com, Parts Unlimited, Pirelli, VP Fuel and Wiseco.
Associate level sponsors include Alpinestar, Cometic, Custom Axis, CV4, Factory Connection, Fox Shox, Hiper, Moose Utility Division, Moto Tees, The National Guard, Polisport, Powersport Grafx, Thor, Thor Goggles, Tire Balls and Twin Air.
“We at GNCC Racing have a great appreciation for the involvement and generosity of our many sponsors,” said GNCC Director, Tim Cotter. “Without the continued support from our sponsors, fans would not receive the high-quality events or television coverage that they’ve come to expect from the GNCC Series,” Cotter added.
As in the past, brands will activate their sponsorship with on-site and interactive displays, displaying new product and hosting special events at the track. That includes Can-Am demo rides, as well as Parts Unlimited’s famous rider appreciation dinners at four select GNCC events. The first dinner will take place at the GNCC season opener, the Moose Racing Westgate River Ranch GNCC in Florida, followed by the Parts Unlimited Loretta Lynn event in Tennesee, the Wiseco John Penton GNCC in Ohio, and the AMSOIL Ironman in Indiana.
GNCC Racing would like to thank all sponsors for their continued support of the series.
The 2011 Can-Am Grand National Cross Country Series kicks off with the Moose Racing Westgate River Ranch GNCC in River Ranch, Florida in conjunction with Daytona Bike Week this weekend, March 5-8. ATV practice will take place on Saturday and racing on Sunday, followed by bike practice on Monday and racing on Tuesday. For more information, go to www.gnccracing.com.
