Grand National Cross Country Series announces their 50th season schedule for 2024 including a new race and venue The Old Gray GNCC in Tennessee.

The Progressive Grand National Cross Country Series presented by Specialized (GNCC Racing to give it the full and official name), will celebrate 50 years of racing in 2024. That’s some milestone for the iconic cross country off-road series which is globally renowned.

Racer Productions, the people behind GNCC Racing, has announces its schedule for the year ahead which will jump back to a 13-round schedule with events in eight different states.

The season kicks-off in Union, South Carolina with the Big Buck GNCC on February 17 and 18 before heading to the traditional Florida vacation at the Wild Boar GNCC in Palatka on March 2 and 3, which is held in conjunction with the Daytona Beach “Bike Week” festivities. The series heads to Washington, Georgia for The General GNCC one week later on March 9-10 before the Camp Coker Bullet GNCC in Society Hill, back in South Carolina on March 23 and 24.

After a two-week break the series will head to a brand-new location and The Old Gray for the fifth round of racing in Monterey, Tennessee on April 13 and 14.

“The 2024 season is looking to deliver great opportunities for exceptional racing at all the usual favorites, plus a couple additions,” said Jeff Russell, GNCC Trail Boss. “The Old Gray in Tennessee may prove to be a challenge to racers as it will end up being a little more on the old-school side with some technical areas. Additionally, many racers enjoyed racing at Powerline Park and after taking a few years off its great to make a return there in 2024.”
