Union County Hosting Big Buck MotorCross Race

Big Buck GNCC

Big Buck GNCC

Over 1200 racers are expected to compete at the 15th Annual VP Racing Fuels Big Buck GNCC event, America’s largest off-road motorcycle and ATV racing series held right here in the Upstate, at the Big Buck Farm in Union County. The event serves as round four of the 2013 AMSOIL Grand National Cross Country Series.

The race is expected to draw several thousand spectators from all over the U.S. and the surrounding community. Riders will compete on highly tuned dirt bikes and four-wheeled ATVs, and racers will include top international talent, such as U.S. National Champions and World Champions from Europe, Australia and New Zealand.

The Big Buck GNCC is typically a favorite of both fans and racers alike, due in part to the spectacular “creek jump” where riders launch off of a dirt bank and over the water. The rest of the 10-12 mile racecourse consists of tight woods, rocks, hill climbs, fast field sections and other obstacles that make this stop a must-see on the tour.
