MINNEAPOLIS (Nov. 14, 2012) – AMSOIL Championship Snocross is pleased to announce that Traxxas – The Fastest Name in Radio Control – is on board as the series’ presenting sponsor. The multi-year deal beginning with the Duluth (Minn.) National, Nov. 23-25 will showcase the official series title as: AMSOIL Championship Snocross, presented by Traxxas.
Traxxas and company president Mike Jenkins bring their enthusiasm and commitment to AMSOIL Championship Snocross and the International Series of Champions (ISOC) with a real appreciation for its unique brand of racing competition. “AMSOIL Championship Snocross is a perfect fit for Traxxas and our passion for speed, power, performance and fun,” said Jenkins. “ISOC features the finest professional and amateur athletes in high-flying action to provide safe and fun family entertainment. Family fun is a core value at Traxxas, and we are proud to represent Championship Snocross as the presenting sponsor.”
An industry leader in both electric and nitro-powered radio controlled cars and boats, Traxxas in the past has enjoyed ties with the world’s premier snocross series as a tier-one sponsor with ACS. For 2012-’13 Traxxas’ Ready-To-Race®, ready-for-snow vehicles on the Traxxas Try-Me Tracks will again be a HUGE hit with fans attending the ACS events, featured at all nine ACS rounds this season.
“Traxxas has it covered. From off-road truck racing to motocross, Traxxas has placed itself as an established name in the extreme powersports industry,” said Carl Schubitzke, ACS President/Race Director. “Traxxas’ move to presenting sponsor for the upcoming competition seasons further establishes them as the hands down radio controlled leader amongst fans, racers and supporters of extreme powersports and the ‘Greatest Show on Snow’ – AMSOIL Championship Snocross, presented by Traxxas!”
Already established as the title sponsor of the Traxxas Off-Road Championship (TORC) truck racing series, fans from TORC and its premier Wisconsin (Crandon International Off-Road Raceway) and Michigan Upper Peninsula (Bark River Raceway) venues cross over nicely into AMSOIL Championship Snocross venues that run during the winter months in that same region, all featuring Traxxas Try Me Tracks.
