Tualatin, OR (PRWEB) March 16, 2012
As with the 2011 Can-Am GNCC series, MotoSport.com will partner with the 2012 Can-Am GNCC Series and furnish the Holeshot Awards, which riders win by being the fastest out of the gate in each class’ main event. Four MotoSport.com Holeshot Awards are given at each event, making for a total of 52 on the season. Riders who win the Holeshot Award in the XC1 motorcycle and ATV classes will each receive $250, and in the XC2 motorcycle and ATV classes they will pick up $100 each.
The eighth round of the Can-Am GNCC Championship will once again be known as the MotoSport.com Snowshoe GNCC. This event, held June 23rd & 24th 2012 in Snowshoe, West Virginia, is considered by many riders to be one of the series’ most difficult courses, taking place around the scenic Snowshoe Mountain Resort. As with previous races, MotoSport.com will be on-site to provide support for the talented racers taking on the audacious challenge.
New this season is the MotoSport.com Go Race Program, which provides a $20 MotoSport.com gift card to each amateur rider who lines up to race at any Can-Am GNCC event in 2012. Based on last year’s participation the Go Race Program will put more than $150,000 in the hands of amateur racers. Go Race Program gift cards will be emailed to each rider within a month of the event date and can be used on any parts, apparel, or accessories carried by MotoSport.com.
“MotoSport.com is excited to be part of such a well-respected, admired and historic off-road race series,” said Bill Butcher, founder of MotoSport.com and a former racer himself. “Our company has been involved in supporting riders and racers since the very beginning and we are always ready to step forward and demonstrate not only our commitment to the sport, but to celebrate the incredible effort put forth by amateur motorcycle and ATV racers brave enough to take on the GNCC.”
Tim Cotter, Director of the Can-Am GNCC series, stated, “We are excited to continue our relationship with MotoSport.com pertaining to their support of the GNCC. MotoSport.com is a world-class provider of motorcycle parts, accessories and apparel, and they provide an unmatched service for our racers and their families. The $20 gift card, which every rider receives just for starting, puts an exclamation point on MotoSport.com’s commitment to the grass-roots riding community in America.”
MotoSport.com was started by a rider who raced in the 1970’s and 1980’s who was looking for a far more expansive supply of parts and accessories for racers which could be obtained quickly and without the usual hassles and limitations of a dealership.
Today, MotoSport has become an industry leader that remains focused on providing our customers with the dirt bike and ATV parts they need when they need them and is one of the fastest growing retailers of power sports apparel, parts and accessories on the Internet today.
