Supercross fans’ enthusiastic response to our sponsorship efforts in 2010 with the Pro Circuit team and Kawasaki’s Team Green amateur motocross program made the decision to move up to the championship’s sponsor an easy one. We’re looking forward to bringing high-performance Traxxas fun to an even wider audience in 2011. Monster Energy Supercross is an incredible sport to watch and the riders are supremely skilled athletes. Traxxas is proud to be The Official Hobby Class Radio-Controlled Truck of Supercross.”
In addition to being one of the highly-recognized sponsors of Monster Energy Supercross, Traxxas will receive traditional sponsorship benefits and exhibit space within the pit party at 16 races to showcase their try-me-track that will give fans a first-hand experience of the industry-leading Traxxas hobby-class radio-controlled product.
“We are excited to bring Traxxas on board for the 2011 season,” said Dave Prater, director of supercross. “Through Monster Energy Supercross, Traxxas products will be showcased to three-quarters of a million fans, which will be a great springboard for channeling their state-of-the-art R/C equipment.”
