The high-flying snowmobile snocross season is just weeks away. Fans of the sport will still be able to watch it live by subscribing to FloRacing. But there’s a new home for the delayed broadcast of the sport. It’s moving to Fox Sports after years on CBS Sports Network.
We don’t know about you, but we consider this a mighty step forward. That’s primarily because our provider offers Fox Sports but doesn’t offer CBS Sports Network on the standard packages. (And it is all about us, right?)
The ISOC Amsoil Championship Snocross race circuit press release (pasted below) says Fox Sports reaches 53 million households. After copious amounts of Googling we couldn’t find a decent number for CBS Sports Network to make a comparison. But with so much motorsports coverage already on Fox Sports, it seems like a larger home and a very natural home for the coverage.
The contract that ISOC circuit signed also crosses over to the company’s off-road truck racing.

Here’s that press release from ISOC:
FOX Sports Airing Snocross Events Through New Partnership
As the ownership group behind Amsoil Championship Snocross and Amsoil Championship Off-Road, the International Series of Champions is excited to announce a new partnership with Fox Sports starting for the 2023-2024 Season.
This new partnership, forged between the snow-packed tracks of snocross and the prominent airwaves of Fox Sports, is going to make it easier than ever to watch professional snowmobile racing throughout 2024 and beyond.
Through the partnership, Fox Sports will air extensive coverage of snocross and Champ Off-Road events, including 25 total hours of original broadcasts. The high-octane action will air on Fox Sports in the United States, Canada and the Caribbean. On top of that, the shows will also air on Fox Sports Racing in Canada.
Fox Sports reaches 53 million homes and is a leader in motorsports content with its existing line-up, including NASCAR, NHRA, ARCA, and UFC events.
“We are thrilled to bring our award-winning programming to a whole new audience,” said ISOC President Carl Schubitzke. “This partnership with Fox Sports is a testament to the growth, stability and excitement of off-road racing and snocross. To have the opportunity to increase our exposure will benefit everyone involved in our sports.”
