EVENT: 2021 GNCC SERIES KICKOFF

The chasers are stepping it up By Ken Hill The short off-season seems to get shorter each year for those competing in the Grand National Cross-Country series (GNCC). The run up to the 2021 season was shorter than ever when COVID delays pushed the 2020 season late! As teams and riders scrambled to get parts and needed equipment, the world seemed to be working against them. With restrictions at ports due to continuing COVID issues, even the suppliers were scrambling to get parts and products in the country and shipped.…

XC-1 CONTENDER: ADAM McGILL

By the staff of Dirt Wheels XC-1 CONTENDER: ADAM McGILL Hailing from Waverly, West Virginia, Adam McGill can be called the “Bridesmaid” on the track or “Class Clown” off the tracks of the GNCC ATV series. In battle, he’s been the biggest threat to champions like Bill Balance, Chris Borich, and Walker Fowler, and has finished second to those guys more than he’d like to admit. McGill started racing pro way back in 2006, and three years later got his first win—actually, four of them in 2008.  McGill has battled…

REBELSTAR 250 PERFORMANCE TEST | First track test of an all-new, ready-to-race quad

Feb 98 **Editors Note-A test of a one-off prototype racer to replace Honda's FourTrax 250R. Rebel Star one-off racer.  A replacement for the Honda FourTrax 250R? Ever since the wildly popular Four­Trax 250R disappeared from Honda’s line­up in ’89, racers throughout the country have been screaming for a ma­chine as good as, if not better than, the FourTrax. Sure, there are plenty of other sport and performance machines on the market to­day, but none are as fast on the racetrack (in the modified form) as the…

EVENT: GNCC RACING!

Fowler and Wolfe roll-on By Kayla Bolton, Photos by Ken Hill GNCC RACING Like all racing series in the U.S., the AMA Grand National Cross-Country (GNCC) Series presented by Specialized was shocked to a standstill by the COVID-19 virus. As states in the Southeast started to open up, the GNCC crew came up with plans to resume racing safely. Among the many safety restrictions, GNCC officials monitored details as small as requiring racers to bring their own pen to sign up.…

4×4 CHAMPION LANDON WOLFE

By the staff of Dirt Wheels 4x4 CHAMPION LANDON WOLFE Glenville, Pennsylvania’s Landon Wolfe has spent the last decade chasing a dream that actually started another decade before that. Wolfe started riding on two wheels at 5 years old in the trees back then. After a knee injury, he made the switch to four wheels in racing while still riding dirt bikes as a form of cross-training. Climbing the four-wheeled racing ladder was quick and consistent for this 25-year-old winning championship in 2010–2012 and placing…

By the Dirt Wheels Staff and Ken Hill, Photos by Stephen Tripp/www.stephentripp.com 2020 DAYTONA ATV/SX As part of Daytona International Speedway’s 50th anniversary of Supercross, ATV Supercross (ATV/SX) provided the fans what we hoped was a glimpse at the 2020 season. Round one for the AMA Pro ATV class did indeed kick the season off in a grand fashion with the continued tossing of the national title between six-time champ Chad Wienen and two-time and reigning champ Joel Hetrick. Just when the two looked…

QUADS OF THE WORCS RACES

By the staff of Dirt Wheels QUADS OF THE WORCS RACES. World Off-Road Championship Series (WORCS) is one of the major quad competitions on the West Coast. It requires an interesting combination of motocross start, jumps, and turn skills, but the courses are much longer and the races last for an hour. We went to the season opener at Primm, Nevada, and the course seemed like it held several hundred turns. We can’t imagine that anyone could memorize the entire course like a motocross race. For the past two years, the…

ATV RACER PROFILE: DAKOTA HIBLER

ATV RACER PROFILE: DAKOTA HIBLER I was born in Orange County California but my family moved to Arizona shortly after. I am currently 12 years old and the youngest of three kids in my family with an older brother and sister. I started racing almost seven years ago when I saw the KTM Jr. kids at a supercross event and told my dad I wanted to race. Since I didn’t have a bike back then we had to find a place for me to race my quad, which back then was a Honda TRX 90. A few years later my dad bought me a Kawasaki KX 60 bike…

HISTORY LESSON: QUAD RACING CIRCA 1987

HISTORY LESSON: QUAD RACING CIRCA 1987 Back in the 1980s, ATV racing was hot. Top riders raced several circuits that crisscrossed the entire county not just the East Coast. The top riders of the day may be some names you still hear about now racing UTVs, building engines, running tire companies, or promoting national dirt bike races. Here you can watch the quad race at Carlsbad raceway from 1987. To subscribe to Dirt Wheels Magazine in print or digital form click here https://hi-torque.com/product/dirtwheels. …
