BRP Claims multiple GNCC championships
Can-Am X-Team riders simply dominated the 4x4 classes this year – including a four-place sweep of the points standings in the 4x4 Open class.

"Amazing success is just about the best way to describe it," said Bernard Guy, ATV marketing director at BRP. "Every year we set out to win championships and this year it all came together. From the racers to the mechanics to the team owners, everyone involved in the racing program was committed to winning."

The final race near Crowfordsville, Indiana, is always a crowd pleaser with race fans from across the region showing up to cheer on favourite racers. It is also aptly named "The Ironman": during the 13-round GNCC series, it takes an Ironman-like mentality to finish the season, and the final race is never a cakewalk.

Warnert Racing / Can-Am X-Team racer Rick Cecco won the 4x4 Open class after a year-long battle with fellow Can-Am rider Bryan Buckhannon to the final race of the season; Cecco won his championship aboard an Outlander 800 H.O. 4x4. Next year, Cecco will pilot a Can-Am RenegadeTM 800 in the U2 class.

"It feels great to be in a battle all season long and come out with a championship," said Cecco of the win. "My thanks to everyone on the Warnert Racing crew and, of course, to BRP Can-Am for producing such a great ATV. I can't wait to race for the U2-class championship next season."

Also in the 4x4 Open class, Warnert Racing's Scott Kilby and Can-Am X-Team member Jacob Kirst took third and fourth respectively. The class was all Can-Am, all year, all the time. Twelve of 13 4x4 Open class races in 2007 were won aboard a Can-Am Outlander 800.

In the 4x4 Limited class, it was Warnert Racing / Can-Am X-Team's Michael Swift who brought home the class championship. Swift was the run-away winner of the class winning 11 out of 13 races aboard an Outlander 800. Team MPR's Mike Penland battled hard all season long with a couple of podium finishes and several top-five finishes in the class.

Cliffton Beasley of the Warnert Racing / Can-Am X-Team faced tough competition throughout the 2007 GNCC season – from fellow Can-Am X-Team rider Jeremy Dudding! Both riders battled aboard Can-Am Outlander 500 ATVs however, it was Beasley's wins in 10 out of 13 rounds that gave him the championship. Both Beasley and Dudding finished either first or second in nine out of 13 races in 2007.

With the 2007 season wrapped up and three championships won, the Can-Am team is looking forward to adding even more championships to the trophy case next GNCC season with the addition of the DS 450 ATV in the XC 1 Pro class. The first GNCC race of 2008 will be on March 2, 2008 in Florida.
