CLARKSBURG, Mass. (Sept. 11, 2015) – It’s no secret that it takes more than talented riders, suitable race venues and cooperative weather to deliver competitive racing and quality entertainment in the sport of snowmobile racing.
Here in the northeast, we’re blessed to have those things in place, and the corporate backing to make it all happen. Officials at East Coast Snocross (ECS) are proud to announce the return of highly-valued marketing partners AMSOIL, Woody’s Traction Products, FXR World Class apparel, C&A Pro Skis and New England Race Fuels for the 2015-16 season.
“We’ve been fortunate to have the support of some of the industry’s most popular and respected companies,” ECS owner Kurt Gagne said. “To have them returning for what I feel will be an exciting 2015-16 season of competition is indeed an honor. As we did last winter, we’ll strive to promote each and every one of them to the best of our ability while asking our teams and fans to use their products.”
In the world of snowmobile racing, AMSOIL is second-to-none. AMSOIL two-cycle oils, featuring INTERCEPTOR® and DOMINATOR®, are specialized oils designed for today’s specialized engines. INTERCEPTOR contains high levels of detergent additives to prevent valve sticking. DOMINATOR was created with a focus on high-horsepower, modified engines used for racing or on the trail. It contains higher viscosity base oils for outstanding overall protection and additives for higher operating temperatures.
The folks at Woody’s have also supported regional snocross racing heavily in recent years, and will do so again in 2015-16. With studs and carbides to fit every need on both track and trail, Woody’s is a must-own brand for serious racers and casual riders. Jim Musselman and Woody Kozlow’s legacy continues around the snowbelt, especially here in the often-icy northeast.
Also returning to the fine family of ECS partners for their second season is FXR World Class apparel. FXR provided outdoor gear (jackets, bibs, boots, gloves) for race officials last winter, and everybody praised the way it performed. ECS officials wear FXR gear in some of the most brutal conditions winter can dish out, yet they stay warm and dry thanks to efficient design and high-quality materials.
C&A Pro manufactures high-quality aftermarket snowmobile skis using extremely durable material combined with compression molded technology. C&A Pro skis are one of the most flexible and indestructible skis on the market. Whether you are a hard-core Pro or Pro Lite racer in snocross, compete in cross country, freestyle or watercross, out boondocking in the back country, hill climbing, or are a recreational trail rider, C&A Pro has a ski that fits your style.
New England Racing Fuel, based in Burlington, Connecticut, is the northeast regional distributor for Sunoco Racing Fuels, including the fuel used by ECS teams. Sunoco makes the world’s top high-octane fuels recognized by racers of every type, from short track ovals to drag racers. Sunoco is the ‘Official Fuel’ of NASCAR, IndyCar, the NHRA and over 75 other sanctioned racing series. Co-owner John Holland can be seen weekly at major races all over the region assisting customers.
ECS will be selling NERF’s Sunoco Race Gas through our online race registration during the entire season. Fuel ordered by Wednesday will be delivered to the race site on Friday.
“We’ve been busy over the off-season working with returning race sites and exploring potential new venues,” Gagne added. “As we approach the upcoming winter, it is comforting to know we have such an impressive group of marketing partners willing to support our series. They’re all top-notch companies, and we’re proud to have them return. We’ll be announcing our 2015-16 schedule in the coming weeks, and look forward to another strong season of snocross competition.”
East Coast Snocross, presented by Woody’s Traction, AMSOIL and FXR, is the sanctioning body for snowmobile racing in the northeastern United States. ECS maintains a regional circuit intended to keep grass-roots snocross racing healthy in this part of the country, while also cultivating new talent for tomorrow’s factory-backed Pro teams.
