After a two month break, the 2019 GNCC series returned to action at the all new Black Sky GNCC, in Harpursville, New York. After a cloudy and somewhat wet Saturday, racers on Sunday were treated to sunny skies and temperatures in the 70’s, making for one of the best race days of the year. After 3 hours of racing on a rough and rocky Black Sky course, FXR had a great presence, placing 10 riders in the top 50 overall. Round 11 takes place at the Mason Dixon GNCC, at the famous High Point Raceway, in Mount Morris, Pennsylvania on September 28thand 29th.
