Although the dates had already been released, now the dates have places as Racer Productions, the promoters of the Can-Am Grand National Cross Country Series, have announced the schedule for the 13-round series.

The series will include some first-time events with the Indy 100 GNCC in Gosport, Indiana joining the tour for the first time on May 14-15, with the Rock Run GNCC in Altoona, Pennsylvania, set to debut on May 28-29. The location for one other GNCC round, on September 24-25, will be announced shortly, according to Racer Productions, with GNCC officials currently exploring venues in the Northern Pennsylvania or Western New York region.

"We're excited to head to these new locations, as well as our existing tracks," says GNCC Trail Boss Jeff Russell. "Indiana and Pennsylvania have a long history in this series and we expect plenty of fans to come and cheer the racers, and plenty of racers to enjoy these new tracks."

The Antoona, Pennsylvania, race will effectively replace the Somerset, Pennsylvania, round that ran in 2010, as the two locations are within about 20 miles of each other. The Gosport, Indiana, race, hopes to capitalize on the popularity of the Ironman GNCC in Crawfordsville, Indiana, which is usually one of the biggest events of the year.

The series once again opens with the River Ranch GNCC in River Ranch, Florida. As part of the annual Daytona Bike Week schedule, ATVs will practice on Saturday March 5 and race on Sunday, March 6. Bikes will practice on Monday, March 7 and race on Tuesday March 8.
