MORGANTOWN, W.Va. — Tune in to RacerTV.com this weekend, September 29 and 30, at 1:00 p.m. ET/10:00 a.m. PT for the Amsoil Grand National Cross Country (GNCC) Series, an AMA National Championship, round 11—Rocky Mountain ATV/MC Mason-Dixon GNCC live broadcast from Mount Morris, Pennsylvania.
It has been 15 years since the last Mathews Farm event was held, and on Saturday, September 6, 2003, Chris Borich earned the Pro class win. This Saturday, Borich is looking to once again put his ATV at the front of the pack and earn his second win of the 2018 season. Borich took the win at Snowshoe before the summer break and is hoping to pick up where he left off this Saturday.
However, Walker Fowler leads the way in championship standings and will be on the hunt to earn his sixth win of the season. The last time Fowler raced at Mathews Farm, he was racing a KTM 65cc motorcycle in the GNCC youth division, where he finished 31st overall. This weekend, Fowler is hoping to earn his sixth XC1 Pro ATV win of the season.
This Sunday, September 30, Kailub Russell is set to battle with the rest of the XC1 Open Pro field for his eighth win of the season. After earning the overall win at Snowshoe and extending his points lead, K. Russell currently has a 54-point gap over second place heading into the last three rounds of the 2018 GNCC season.
However, Thad Duvall, who currently sits second in championship standings, is looking for redemption after battling for the win at round nine before a crash that ultimately injured his wrist. The last time GNCC Racing was on this property, Duvall and K. Russell were both in the youth division with Duvall winning the overall and K. Russell finishing 11th overall.
Trevor Bollinger has been having a standout season thus far, with three podium finishes and finishing inside the top ten at the first nine rounds. Bollinger even managed to try and battle for a win at the Tomahawk round in New York. This weekend, Bollinger will be one to keep an eye on, as he has shown he has the speed to run at the front of the pack, and since this is an all-new event the overall could be anyone's to claim.
Currently sitting fourth in points is Steward Baylor Jr., who had a strong start to the season by finishing on the podium at the first three rounds. After riding with an injured knee at the last round in June, S. Baylor Jr. is looking for a fresh start to the second half of the GNCC season this Sunday.
Hailing from Waynesburg, Pennsylvania—a mere 25 minutes north of Mount Morris—is Alex Teagarden. Competing in the FMF XC3 125 Pro-Am class this season, Teagarden holds the third place position in the points standings. Teagarden has taken the class win three times thus far in the season and is aiming to earn his fourth in front of his hometown family and friends this weekend.
A highlight show featuring the event will air on NBC Sports Network on Saturday, November 10 at 3 p.m. ET. Click here for the full 2018 broadcast schedule.
