The Snowshoe GNCC has some of the best accommodations of any GNCC with quality restaurants, hotels, and shuttle buses, which makes it great for spectators, but it is also one of the toughest races of the year for those willing to attempt to conquer the mountain

Mild weather was on hand for this round and the track was typical for Snowshoe. Many racers even hung around for the Craig Morgan concert that was held at 7:00 pm on Saturday and was a big success.

The starting order for this race went according to points standings with the top five in each class in the front row and the rest of the class following accordingly by row. The front row start enabled Chris Borich to get a solid grip on a top three spot right off the start. Borich moved into second place by the end of the first lap and fell back to third briefly in lap three after hitting a rock.

“I tried to keep Brian Wolf in sight but I smashed into a rock and fell back a bit. I just kept going after that and caught back up and we were battling, but Brian ran into trouble out there and I was able to cruise in for the win,” said Borich
