AMSOIL Grand National Cross Country Series Kicks Off This Weekend in Florida

Posted:

The 2015 AMSOIL Grand National Cross Country Series presented by Maxxis, an AMA National Championship, is set to embark on its 41st annual season this weekend, March 7 and 8, alongside Daytona's "Bike Week" festivities in Florida.

The Moose Racing Wild Boar GNCC in Palatka serves as the season opener for the 13-round championship series, where ATVs race throughout the day on Saturday and motorcycles line up for a full day of racing on Sunday through some of the most intense, grueling obstacles in off-road.

Following a record-breaking season in 2014 in terms of rider participation, fan attendance and a few history-making moments on the course, the 2015 AMSOIL GNCC season is one of the most highly anticipated championships to date. With its close proximity to Daytona (around 65 miles), the season opener typically draws many of the industry's biggest names, as the two-to-three hour pro races are a spectacle to see.

The schedule traditionally begins in the sands of Florida with a unique experience for GNCC racers and fans alike. However, the Rodman Plantation offers a variation of terrain that isn't typical for the sunshine state. The 6,000-acre property features a wealth of black clay mixed into the sandy terrain, with plenty of tight wooded sections and flowy field sections.

2014 champion Kailub Russell will head into the season as the big favorite to take out this years championship, though there will be plenty of challengers chasing his crown including last years runnuer up, Josh Strang with the Australian joining Husqvarna for this years season.

Fellow Australian Daniel Milner will be another ride who will challenge for the GNCC title in 2015.
