November, 2017 – Come Thanksgiving weekend, the world’s largest snowmobile racing series, The AMSOIL Championship Snocross Series kicks off a new season, with PIRTEK USA as a corporate sponsor for the fourth consecutive year.

“We look forward to Snocross season every year,” said Glenn Duncan, executive director of PIRTEK USA. “These drivers are first-rate competitors and they provide a tremendous amount of thrills and entertainment for the fans. We enjoy our role as sponsor.”
The owner of PIRTEK franchises in Midway and Plymouth, MN, has sponsored the Hentges Racing Team in Snocross competition for the past 13 years. Last Season Hentges racer Kody Kamm finished first in Pro Open points at the 2017 Snocross Grand Finale last March.
“We were so glad to see Kody make such an impressive showing at the finale, It was a great end to an exciting season.” said Heitkamp. “We are looking forward another successful season ahead!”

The Snocross track groomers will display PIRTEK’s logo during the entire series. The groomer branding opportunity led to PIRTEK’s creation of “Gary the Groomer,” a digital media character who will now be featured on the Snocross.com website. This is Gary’s second season on social media promoting PIRTEK’s involvement in the series. In addition to Twitter, @GaryTheGroomer is featured this year on Facebook and Instagram. He will also be the series’ official source of track condition updates on Snocross.com.
