A new program aimed at reaching young snowmobilers will be highlighted at the Minnesota United Snowmobiler’s Association tomorrow with an appearance by a pro snocross racer. Here’s the press release from Christian Brothers Racing.
Fertile, Minn. (August 21, 2012) – Winter may still be months away, but fans of Christian Brothers Racing, Team Arctic, snowmobile racing and snowmobiling will have a chance to meet and get an autograph from Pro snocross and cross-country rider Logan Christian at the Minnesota State Fair. Christian will be signing autographs in the Minnesota United Snowmobiler’s Association (MnUSA) State Fair booth this Friday, August 24, from 1-2PM. The appearance was set up to help promote the partnership formed between Christian Brothers Racing and MnUSA for the coming 2013 snowmobile season.
“Our business is racing, but we realized we also have a great opportunity to reach a large number of younger snowmobilers through our race team,” said Christian Brothers Racing co-owner Dwight Christian. “It’s important that we get the next generation of snowmobilers involved to help secure the future of our trail systems.”
The campaign has been dubbed, “We get it…do you?” and is a joint promotion between MnUSA and Christian Brothers Racing. In addition to appearing at the Minnesota State Fair, Christian Brothers Racing makes appearances at numerous county fairs and other exhibitions across the state of Minnesota. They also spend the winter racing snocross, enduros and cross-country in Minnesota as well as across the Snow Belt and Scandinavia. The team travels with its race trailer as well as a vending trailer where racing fans and snowmobile enthusiasts can buy the same gear the team uses when it competes. As part of the new MnUSA partnership fans will be able to get information about how to become involved with MnUSA at the Christian Brothers Racing vending trailer. Involvement with MnUSA helps secure the future of the state trail system.
“MnUSA’s partnership with Christian Brothers Racing is a great way for us to reach out to young snowmobilers and get them involved to help secure the future of our state trail system,” said MnUSA President Mark Steinmuller. “Also, we hope to work together to get the message out to people that racing belongs on the track, not the trails.”
The MnUSA booth is located at 1460 Cosgrove Avenue next to the 4H building between Wright Avenue and Dan Patch Avenue on the East side of the fairgrounds. Christian will be at the booth Friday, August 24, from 1-2PM. For more information on MnUSA visit www.mnsnowmobiler.org.
