Hotdogs, fireworks, and racing! Round 9 of the GNCC series headed to Dunkard, Pennsylvania, on July 4thweekend, for the High Voltage GNCC. Heavy rain during Saturday’s ATV racing made for some of the best conditions in recent memory for Sunday action. Riders claimed that the course was one of the easiest of the year, temperatures nearing 100 degrees made it the most challenging race of the season. After 3+ hours of racing, many of the riders were plagued with heat exhaustion. The series takes the usual summer break, and resumes September 14thand 15th, at the Black Sky GNCC in Harpursville, New York.
