Morgantown, W. Va. (April 27, 2011)
- Recent inclement weather conditions at Loretta Lynn Ranch in Hurricane Mills, Tenn. have made it impossible to adequately prepare the course for the Parts Unlimited Loretta Lynn's GNCC this weekend, April 30 - May 1.
As a result of extreme rains, the GNCC course and parking area is under water. After discussion with local public safety officials, it has been determined that Racer Productions has no choice but to postpone this event for the safety and well-being of all riders, fans and families.
"Last evening's rain was harder and longer than I have ever witnessed at Loretta Lynn's," said Trail Boss Jeff Russell, a veteran of three decades of racing and organizing events at the Ranch.
Racer Productions is working closely with Loretta Lynn's management team and Humphreys County officials to determine a date for rescheduling. That information will be released as soon as it is available. Racer Productions and the GNCC team apologize for the inconvenience.
The 2011 Can-Am Grand National Cross Country Series heads to Gosport, Ind. in two weeks, May 14-15, for the first annual Indy 100 GNCC. ATV racing will take place on Saturday, followed by bike racing on Sunday. For more information, please visit www.gnccracing.com
The Can-Am Grand National Cross Country series is America's premier off-road racing series. Founded in 1979, the 13-round championship is produced exclusively by Racer Productions. Cross-country racing is one of the most physically demanding sports in the world. The grueling three-hour GNCC races lead as many as 1,500 riders through tracks ranging in length from eight to 12 miles. With varied terrain, including hills, woods, mud, dirt, rocks and motocross sections, GNCC events are tests of both survival and speed. Riders compete for more than $3 million in prize money, which draws talent from all over the U.S., Europe, Australia and New Zealand. GNCC Racing is televised and airs every weekend on the Versus Network. For more information, please visit www.gnccracing.com.
