Round eleven of the 2018 AMSOIL Grand National Cross Country (GNCC) Series, an AMA National Championship, took place in Mount Morris, Pennsylvania at Mathews Farm.
The last race to be held on the Mathews Farm property was back in 2003, and our top two title contenders were racing in the youth division.
Thad Duvall put on a hard-fought battle for the duration of the three-hour race to earn the inaugural Mason-Dixon GNCC win. Duvall got a good jump off the line to earn the $250 All Balls Racing Holeshot Award, with Kailub Russell right behind him. However, when the XC1 Open Pro pack made their way to timing and scoring on lap one it was Steward Baylor Jr. leading the way.
While Baylor Jr. led the way, it was JCR Honda's Trevor Bollinger who came through in second on lap one, and Duvall three seconds behind him in third. The battle was on as the race wore on, Duvall worked his way into the second place position on lap two and set his sights on Baylor Jr. As they made their way around on lap four Duvall made the pass and held onto the lead until the checkered flag flew.
