Morgantown, W. Va. (October 27, 2011) - Racer Productions, producers of the Can-Am Grand National Cross Country Series, and BRP Can-Am are excited to announce Sunshine "Sonny" Willis, of Indianapolis, Indiana, as the winner of a brand-new 2011 Can-Am Outlander 650 XT. Can-Am Race Manager, Jimmie O'Dell, drew Sunny's name during the ATV podium celebration at Saturday's Ironman GNCC.
Several thousand GNCC fans entered the season-long sweepstakes at the first twelve rounds of the series, including the Amsoil Ironman GNCC, where the drawing took place.
"I am super excited to win the Can-Am Outlander 650, it's a pretty cool ATV - I like it a lot!" said Sonny Willis. "I'm probably going to let the family have fun with it, it's a great all-terrain vehicle and we will get a lot of use out of it! Thanks to GNCC and Can-Am for the opportunity to finally own an ATV to go riding with my friends!"
