January 8, 2021, La Mirada, CA – Makita U.S.A., Inc. is excited to announce another snocross season with longtime partner, Warnert Racing. The Makita / Ski-Doo Racing team finished last season on top with 1st place in Pro-Lite class and 2nd place in Pro class.

Makita is the Official Power Tool of snocross, renewing its long-standing partnership with ISOC, parent-company of the AMSOIL Championship Snocross. Makita’s extensive sponsorship includes race day activation and a prominent on-track presence that will be captured in season-long broadcast TV coverage by CBS Sports. The season begins in early January at Elk River, MN, and continues through the Winter months at race tracks across the Mid-West.
“We are proud of our partnerships with Warnert Racing and BRP Corporation, as well as our active sponsorship of ISOC,” states Brent Withey, vice president of brand marketing, Makita U.S.A. “We understand the challenges posed by COVID-19 protocols and appreciate efforts by ISOC and the racing venues to put the racers on the track this season. But whether fans are watching at trackside or through live-streaming and national TV coverage, they can count on exciting snocross racing, and Makita will be there as an active on-site sponsor and as a tool of choice in the pits.”
Makita provides Warnert Racing technicians with the necessary cordless power tools to keep the Factory Ski-Doo snowmobiles running, even in the coldest conditions. These tools are part of the LXT System, the world’s largest compatible cordless tool system, with over 275 products, powered by 18V slide-style batteries.
Warnert Racing enters the season with top talent. The Makita Tools / Ski-Doo Racing team includes Pro Racers Francis Pelletier and Daniel Benham.
