Team of the Year to Race DRIFT in Snocross and Cross-Country
After claiming championship titles in both oval and cross-country competition in 2011, DRIFT Racing Gear is going wide-open into national snocross competition for 2012 with the Christian Bros. Racing team of Fertile, Minn.
One of the most comprehensive and professional independent teams in snowmobile racing, Christian Bros. Racing (CBR) launches into 2012 as the ISOC and USCC Team of the Year with an elite corps of racers including: Pro Rookie of the Year Logan Christian; pro front runner Garth Kaufman; 2010 X Games bronze medalist Cory Davis; and 120 Champion Evan Christian.
“Our cross-country team chose DRIFT gear last season because of its quality, style and excellent fit,” said CBR team co-owner, Dwight Christian. “Wearing DRIFT, we won the USCC Pro Championship with Ryan Simons. Now both teams will chase championships wearing the latest DRIFT race gear.”
The 2012 CBR all-star cross-country team consists of defending Pro Champion Simons; defending I-500 champion Brian Dick; and four-time Pro class winner last season, D.J. Ekre.
“Adding the high-horsepower Christian Bros. snocross team to the DRIFT program will launch us high in the sky and on the podium in this very visible form of racing,” said Tom Schaefer, DRIFT Gear supervisor. “The racers will sport the newest DRIFT Racing Suit and associated gear, while the mechanics and support personnel will stay warm and stylish with high-quality DRIFT jackets, pants, gloves and casual sportswear.”
CBR will sell select DRIFT gear via a vending trailer at all snocross and most cross-country events.
