Can-Am GNCC Racing

Rekluse Sponsors GNCC Holeshot Award

MORGANTOWN, W. Va. (February 8, 2008) -- Racer Productions, producers of the Can-Am Grand National Cross Country (GNCC) Series, has announced Rekluse Motorsports as a new sponsor for the 2008 GNCC Season. Rekluse, maker of the Z-Start automatic clutch, will also sponsor the ATV XC2 Holeshot Award, distributing $100 per event to the fastest starter in the class (a total of $1300 to the Pro-Am racers in that division).

“We’ve reached the point where we can reach out to riders in the East, and there’s no better way than to join the GNCC Series,” says Albert Youngwerth, President Rekluse Motorsports Inc. “We believe our product is especially effective in the conditions you’ll find in GNCCs. With the Z-Start clutch, you can find traction where others can’t, so it’s a significant advantage in technical situations.”

Introduced last year, the Z-Start Pro clutch is the first clutch to provide stock-like feel at the lever, but still provides 100 percent override. Like all Rekluse Z-Start clutches, the clutch system can retrofit to most manual clutch dirt bikes and ATVs, and provides perfect traction and power delivery without having to work the clutch lever. The system is especially helpful in low traction, technical situations and also helps riders save energy, which is especially helpful in long-distance races.

The 2008 Can-Am Grand National Cross Country Series kicks off with the Triton GNCC in Melbourne, Fla. on March 1-4. ATVs will practice on Saturday, March 1, and race Sunday, March 2. Bikes will practice on Monday, March 3, and race Tuesday, March 4.
