MAKITA INDUSTRIAL POWER TOOLS JOINS WARNERT RACING SNOCROSS TEAM

Pioneering snocross "superteam" has captured five season championships since 1999

La Mirada, CA – Makita® Industrial Power Tools has joined BRP’s Ski-Doo brand as an official sponsor of the Warnert Racing Snocross Team in AMSOIL Championship Snocross Series.  The debut of the Makita-backed Warnert Racing team will be at the Amsoil® Duluth National at Spirit Mountain in Duluth, MN, November 28-30.

Warnert Racing: A Pioneering "Superteam"
Warnert Racing is a premier team in professional snocross snowmobile racing and one of the sport’s pioneering “superteams.” Warnert Racing was formed in 1999 and has been a consistent contender with five season championships in AMSOIL Championship Snocross, the featured national series within International Series of Champions (ISOC) snocross racing.
 
“It only makes sense for Makita to partner with the factory-backed team that’s dedicated to winning snocross championships, and has the trophies to prove it,” said Brent Withey, director of brand marketing, Makita USA. “We know what goes into making these quality racing machines because Makita power tools can be found on the assembly line where Ski-Doo snowmobiles are manufactured.  Warnert Racing mechanics also depend on Makita tools in the race shop and on cold race days. We are looking forward to working with such a top-shelf team.”
 
”Makita Power Tools manufacture the best products available for work in any conditions, especially cold weather,”   stated Mark Warnert, co-owner of Warnert Racing. “And their involvement in racing has always been at the top level, with the top teams so we’re honored and excited to be working with them.”
 
”The Makita name is well known in racing circles for both their hard working tools and their involvement with successful teams,” adds Sébastien Thibault, racing manager, Ski-Doo Snowmobiles. “It’s great to have them on board and I look forward to working with their team.“
 
Championship Drivers Ready to Race
Warnert Racing is entering the 2014-15 season with some of the top talent in the sport. Warnert recently signed two-time Swedish Pro Lite Champion John Stenberg. Stenberg, of Lofsdalen, Sweden joins countryman Johan Lidman, a Swedish snocross champion.
 
Snocross is similar to motocross in the style of racing on closed circuits of varying shapes and sizes containing high-flying jumps, bumps and corners in both directions. The racing is close quarters with the riders rarely seated because of the rough conditions and speeds up to 65 mph. The 2014-15 season runs through March and includes national broadcast coverage on CBS Sports.
