     DJ Eckstrom and Shaun Crapo of Amsoil Airforce Makita will be fighting for a spot on the podium at the Winter X Games 13 this weekend in Aspen Colorado. Last year at the winter X games, DJ stepped up onto the podium with a bronze medal finish. Unfortunately Shaun Crapo finished in 9th place due to mechanical problems. This year they’re both counting on going home with a medal around their neck.

     Currently the two riders are in the heat of the ISOC SnoCross Series with 3 events down and 5 to go. DJ is in 3rd place in the Pro Stock standings and 9th in the Pro Open standings. In the Pro Stock Shaun is in 6th place and is 10th in the Pro Open. The X games are a separate event and will not count in the point standings for the ISOC series.

     The Winter X Games 13 will be televised on ESPN starting tonight and ending on Sunday. Watch our team compete in the first round of SnoCross tomorrow night LIVE on ESPN at 9:30 – 11:30PM ET (6:30 – 8:30PM PT) and then hopefully in the finals on Saturday night LIVE on ESPN at 9:00 – 11:00PM ET (6:00 – 8:00PM PT).
