Munising, MI (October 28, 2013) – We are pleased to announce the formation of a new National Snocross team that will be competing in the Amsoil Championship Snocross Series this winter. A group of 8 elite athletes, each of which have been hand-selected based upon their display of dedication, skill, commitment, good sportsmanship, achievements in education and positive attitudes will be racing out of the UPPERACING rig this winter. The 8 select riders range from ages 10-20 and will be competing at various levels. We are very excited to have such a young group of dedicated racers to work with this winter!
We are based out of Munising, MI and are the only National team that solely represents the Northern Michigan area. 7 of our 8 riders are from Michigan’s Upper Peninsula and have a combined 40+ years of experience! With the combination of these 8 riders, UPPERACING is looking forward to a great season, and will be aiming for podium domination every weekend.
We are a family oriented race team with a mission! Our mission is to promote and successfully present the National circuit with a team of athletes, whose individual dedication, will be combined into a team effort. Not only will we be promoting the Northern Michigan, but we will be promoting the importance of faith, education, family and brother/sisterhood.
