The most dominant team in USCC cross-country racing in 2010 has joined the DRIFT Racing team for 2011. Christian Bros. Racing of Fertile, Minn., will be decked out in DRIFT performance race gear when they return to defend their titles this coming season.
With a team of racers that reads like an all-star list, Christian Bros. Racing (CBR) is a cross-country powerhouse that includes top pros D.J. Ekre, Ryan Simons, Cory Davis, Garth Kaufman, Logan Christian and Zach Pattyn.
Last season D.J. Ekre won the Pro Open points championship and finished second in the Pro 600 battle. Between the Pro and Semi Pro classes, CBR scored 16 wins in USCC and was named Team of the Year. Expect even greater domination in 2011.
“Our cross-country racing effort will be bigger and better this coming season,” said Dwight Christian, team co-owner. “The snocross schedule is more open, which means our entire team will be at more USCC cross-country events, with the goal of topping our 2010 performance.”
Brad Kosel, Product Specialist at DRIFT, is thrilled about adding CBR to race program. He said, “Christian Bros. Racing absolutely owned cross-country racing last year. They have the best racers, the biggest race rigs and the most comprehensive program. We’re pumped to partner with them and to see them in DRIFT Racing gear.”
“Adding CBR expands our race support in a huge way,” added Kosel. “With World Champion oval racer P.J. Wanderscheid and his team sporting DRIFT gear again this season, we’re set to stand atop podiums throughout North America.”
