BRP MAKES HISTORY AT
Can-Am Racers Sweep Overall Finish
Valcourt, Quebec, June 24, 2007 – In what was
an unprecedented feat in GNCC racing history,
racers aboard Can-AmTM OutlanderTM ATVs swept
the morning overall race at the Snowshoe GNCC.
Utility-class racers had never swept the overall
podium since utility ATVs started racing GNCC
Taking the overall win at the mountain town
of Snowshoe, W.V., was Can-Am X-Team support
rider Jeremy Dudding in the 4x4 Lites class.
Dudding powered his Outlander 500 H.O.TM EFI to
the win in what has been described as one of the
toughest courses in years.
"Pleased doesn't even begin to describe how I
am feeling," said Bernard Guy, ATV marketing
director at BRP. "Our racers accomplished
something many thought impossible, but hard
work, determination and preparation have paid
off. I am proud of our Can-Am racers."
Following Dudding was Can-Am privateer Bryan
Buckhannon who raced an Outlander 800 H.O. EFI
in the competitive 4x4 Open class; Buckhannon
now leads the class points championship.
Completing the overall sweep was team Warnert
Racing/Can-Am rider Michael Swift who was also
aboard an Outlander 800. Adding to the sweep was
Warnert's Richard Cecco, who finished fourth
overall on his Outlander 800.
The Can-Am GNCC Series now takes its
scheduled break for the summer heat. Racing
action returns to the woods with the Mountain
Ridge GNCC near Somerset, Pa., September 1.
