Minneapolis (Jan. 13, 2014) – Officials with International Series of Champions (ISOC), the producers and promoters of AMSOIL Championship Snocross, powered by Ram, announced today that ACS sponsor United States Air Force will return to the series’ sponsorship lineup for the 2013-’14 competition season, backing both the Feb. 7-8 Seneca/Allegany (N.Y.) Air Force Snocross and the March 7-8 Air Force Snocross at Buffalo River Race Park in Glyndon, Minn.
Featuring the highly sought after 17-35 athletic, mechanically-inclined male/female demographic, AMSOIL Championship Snocross has been a strategic partner for the USAF’s key messages to potential recruits over the past three competition seasons. The Air Force Recruiting Service (AFRS), which looks to add approximately 26,000 annually for 150 different career fields (with more than 8,500 career opportunities in the mechanical area), enjoys the synergy that the high tech world of professional snowmobile racing offers – along with the Air Force-quality fans the series attracts.
“Like Snocross, the United States Air Force uses teamwork and finely-tuned equipment to accomplish its mission,” said Col. Marcus Johnson, AFRS Strategic Marketing Division chief. “From working on engines of an F-22 Raptor to engineering the next generation of quad rotors, all of our missions require Airmen to be innovative and have technical acumen.”
In addition to the positive interaction between ACS fans and the USAF’s popular on-site activation efforts, the USAF’s also a champion of the calculated team effort that it takes to pull together a successful racing endeavor on the ACS circuit – both professional and amateur. Teamwork and team-oriented values are critical to the success of the United States Air Force. And these values are intrinsic in all levels of racing on the ACS, matching the USAF core values of Integrity, service before self and excellence in all we do.
“Precision, loyalty, technology and speed – AMSOIL Championship Snocross and its fan base is a natural fit for the United States Air Force and we welcome them back for another competition year beginning this weekend in Duluth (Minn.),” said Carl Schubitzke, ACS President/Race Director.
The AFRS mission is to inspire, engage and recruit the brightest, most competitive and diverse men and women for service in America’s Air Force. In addition to flying fighter jets, snocross competitors, teams and fans can find Air Force careers available in Aircraft Maintenance, Cyberspace, Electronics, Healthcare, Intelligence, Communications, Space and Special Operations, to name a few.
