Minneapolis (Nov. 20, 2013) – Officials with International Series of Champions (ISOC), the producers and promoters of AMSOIL Championship Snocross, powered by Ram, announced today the live event and online broadcast announcers’ lineup for the 2013-’14 competition season.
Leading the way will be returning announcers Carly Aplin and Mike Woodley. The two will be joined by famed off-road truck racing announcer, Scott Rehn, who makes his debut with AMSOIL Championship Snocross in two weeks in Duluth, Minn.
“Having an experienced team in Carly Aplin and Mike Woodley joined by a proven motorsports announcing talent in Scott Rehn ensures that we’ll be ready-to-go in the booth and on the track once the green flag flies on the season opener in Duluth,” said ISOC President and Race Director Carl Schubitzke. “The enthusiasm these three bring to the table will not only elevate the fans’ experience at the live events, it will also carry over into a great show online for the legions of fans around the world that follow AMSOIL Championship Snocross, powered by Ram.”
Carly Aplin: A native Minnesotan, Aplin returns to AMSOIL Championship Snocross possessing a wealth of TV knowledge and experience. An on-air host with the CW Twin Cities’ “Airwaves” program, Aplin’s talents cross over into radio as well where she’s worked as a guest host on KFAN’s “Sludge and Lake Show” and KDWB FM’s “Dave Ryan in the Morning.”
“Last year was a blast! The ISOC team was amazing to work with and the excitement level of the racing – both pro and amateur – speaks for itself,” said Aplin. “With a full season of experience covering the racing and getting to know all the racers I can’t wait for Duluth and to get down right in the middle of all the action again to tell the great stories of AMSOIL Championship Snocross!”
Mike Woodley: Celebrating a 30-year award-winning broadcast career that spans the country from Minneapolis to San Francisco, Woodley joined the ISOC team last year and worked with Aplin for much of the season – his first on the AMSOIL Championship Snocross tour. A veteran with CBS Radio, Woodley’s experience in live event broadcasting runs the sports gambit – from the Winter Olympics to NCAA sports, Woodley’s “Northern Sun Showcase” has highlighted NCAA DII athletics in Minnesota since 2001.
“Growing up in Minnesota one has an affinity for snowmobiles. So to be able to combine that passion with a competitive angle and my broadcasting experience creates an excellent fit for me and AMSOIL Championship Snocross,” said Woodley. “I’m pumped for Duluth and looking forward to joining Carly and Scott in the booth.”
Scott Rehn: A newcomer to snocross racing is a bit of an overstatement as Rehn, a Wisconsin native who grew up riding sleds, is looking forward to transition immediately from the high-flying world of TORC off-road truck racing to the similar winter version of off-road on snowmobiles with AMSOIL Championship Snocross.
“I’m actually a big fan of snocross and watched most of the live webcasts on snocross.com last winter,” said Rehn. “So I’m familiar with all the teams and racers heading into Duluth and look forward to spending a lot of time it the pits meeting everyone and tying in all the information I can gather into our broadcasts. It’s definitely going to be a heck of a season in AMSOIL Championship Snocross!”
