Corporate Sponsor Pirtek Set for Start of New Snocross Season

Races begin Thanksgiving weekend in Minnesota; Pirtek Snocross National scheduled for Jan. 6-7

November 16, 2016 // // Rockledge, FL, USA – As the winter months draw near, Pirtek will be a corporate sponsor of the world’s largest snowmobile racing series for the third consecutive year. The AMSOIL Championship Snocross Series begins Nov. 25-27 – Thanksgiving weekend – with the AMSOIL Snocross National in Duluth, MN.

Pirtek will be involved in the entire series, but is the primary sponsor of the Pirtek Snocross National, presented by Jimmy John's, which runs Jan. 6-7 at Canterbury Park & Racetrack in Shakopee, MN.

Snocross is a high-performance snowmobile race that resembles motocross, with its high air-jumps, banked corners and fast action.

“It’s a thrilling sport,” said Glenn Duncan, executive director of Pirtek International. “The drivers are capable of some amazing feats as they fly around the track. We’re happy we can support something so entertaining for so many people.”

The only franchise of its kind in the United States, Pirtek provides hydraulic and industrial hose replacement sales and services.  There are 58 Pirtek Service & Supply Centers and a fleet of Mobile Service Vehicles throughout the United States. Globally, Pirtek has more than 400 locations and 2,000 Mobile Service Vehicles in 23 countries around the world.

Sponsorship benefits include on-track signage, commercials on the track’s big screen, a 30-second commercial on CBS Sports, radio ads, and several other opportunities to present the company’s brand and message.

During the entire series, Pirtek will continue to provide a quality race day experience for racers and fans with its world-class hydraulics on the company-branded snow groomer.

The season runs throughout the winter, concluding with the RAM Trucks Snocross Grand Finale March 17-19 in Lake Geneva, WI.
