GBC Tires Returns with $224,250 in Contingency Payout for Can-Am GNCC Series

Morgantown, W.Va. (January 6, 2010) - GBC Tires has announced they will return to the Can-Am Grand National Cross Country Series with a contingency payout almost double of the one offered in 2009. GBC Tires Contingency payout for 2010 is a whopping $224,500.

"It's basically a grass roots program to support Pro-Am all the way down to schoolboy and youth ranks," said David Hunsucker, Events and Marketing Coordinator for GBC Tires. "We've upped the contingency from last year and we look forward to being back to a busy schedule with GNCCs and other events. We also have a new motor home and trailer and we aren't going to be hard to miss at the races."

GBC Tires has aimed their 2010 program at the XC2 Class and the amateur and youth ranks for those who finish through fifth place. The XC2 class winner will receive $300, followed by $200 for second and $150 for third.
