MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (April 22, 2024) – The Progressive Grand National Cross Country (GNCC Racing) Series presented by Specialized, an AMA National Championship, is excited to celebrate the 100th Anniversary of the American Motorcyclist Association. In doing so GNCC and the AMA have created GNCC Days at the AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame. GNCC Days at the AMA HOF will be held Wednesday, April 24 through Tuesday, April 30, 2024.

GNCC Racers are encouraged to stop by the AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame in Pickerington, Ohio for a free tour on their way to or from the AMSOIL Hoosier GNCC in Crawfordsville, Indiana. The first 250 GNCC Racers that visit the AMA HOF will receive $20 off your gate admission, which will be good at any GNCC event in 2024.

“This is an amazing opportunity for GNCC racers and family members to stop by and see the iconic AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame,” said Tim Cotter, Racer Productions Event Director. “This is a special place for motorcyclists and is definitely a must-see when traveling through Pickerington, Ohio.”

Stop by and take in all of the off-road racing and motorcyclist history that the AMA HOF has to offer, plus see the displays from the class of 2023 including the matriarch of GNCC Racing, Rita Coombs, Eight-Time GNCC Champion, Barry Hawk, Pro Motocross Racers, Ryan Dungey and Grant Langston, and adrenaline junkie Travis Pastrana. 

“The GNCC family, including AMA Motorcycle Hall of Famers Rita Coombs and the late Dave Coombs, has made an indelible mark on the history of motorcycling in America,” said AMA COO James Holter. “That history is enshrined for posterity at the AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame. We look forward to welcoming racers and their families anytime and especially during GNCC Days. The AMA and the American Motorcycle Heritage Foundation, the 501c3 that raises money for the Hall of Fame, greatly appreciate the continuing support of the Coombs and the whole team at Racer Productions.”
