Racer Productions Announces $50,000 Snowshoe GNCC Payout
$10,000 paid to winner of bike and ATV race

Morgantown, W.Va. (June 17, 2009) - Racer Productions and MotorcycleUSA.com is pleased to announce the official payout details for the $50,000 purse for the MotorcycleUSA.com Snowshoe GNCC, round nine of the 2009 Can-Am Grand National Cross Country Series, which runs June 27 and 28 at Snowshoe Mountain Resort. The event will pay a bonus of $10,000 to the overall winner of the bike and ATV races, a bonus of $5000 for second overall, and $3000 for third. The Snowshoe GNCC features the roughest terrain seen all year, with deep mud bogs, massive boulders, tree roots and near-vertical hill climbs. The race winners will definitely earn the added bonus money.

"This is an extraordinary opportunity for off-road racers around the world," said Tim Cotter, event director. "The MotorcycleUSA.com Snowshoe GNCC will offer the biggest purse in the 30-year history of GNCC history. All you've got to do is tame the toughest course of the year. Good luck boys!"

The purse will be split for the ATV and bike race days, offering $10,000 to the overall winner of each race-on top the normal take home award of $1,000 for winning the XC1 pro class or $500 for wining the XC2 Lites and Pro-Am division. The rest of the prize money is split between the other top finishers. Essentially, the event pays the typical $14,000 GNCC purse, and then adds $18,000 each day in bonus money for the top-three overall finishers.

In addition, specialty awards will also be given out for holeshots and other awards as they have been all season.
