The company is also the newest associate sponsor of the AMSOIL Grand National Cross Country series.
“We couldn’t be happier to have Jordan join our program for 2016.” said Team Manager Jesse Johnson. “Jordan is the perfect candidate to help further our aspirations of building not only the biggest, but the best off-road race team in the United States. It’s become clear to us through our interactions with Jordan that he shares our core values around the balance of family, racing and business, and we are very excited to see where this year will take us.”
The 2016 GNCC series travels to Palatka, Florida March 5 and 6 for the season opening Moose Racing Wild Boar GNCC. The series continues along the East Coast before concluding in Crawfordsville, Indiana with the AMSOIL Ironman GNCC on October 29 and 30.
