The world's best power tools are on board to support and sponsor the world's best snocross racers.  ISOC and the AMSOIL Championship Snocross Series are pleased to announce Makita USA as its Official Power Tool Sponsor.

Makita applies leading edge technology to engineer tools that are more compact with less weight yet deliver industrial strength power and results.  All Makita products are put through rigorous testing and have the tightest tolerances for lasting performance.  These high standards are similar to those of the professional athletes of the ACSS, and it's just one of the reasons Makita and snocross racing are a perfect match. 

Another reason is Makita's ongoing sponsorship of competitive racing, which includes supercross, motocross, off-road, and more.
"Makita's commitment to competitive racing, the fans and the teams continues to grow each year," said Brent Withey, Makita Director of Brand Marketing.  "We support the sports that support the Makita brand, so it's awesome for Makita to be The Official Power Tool of ISOC.  We know these racing fans are the real deal and they appreciate leading product innovation and power tools engineered for the demands on the jobsite and at the track." 
"It just makes sense to include Makita as a series sponsor for the ACSS," John Daniels, CEO of ISOC Racing said. "Makita makes the best power tools and we have the best snocross athletes."
Makita power tools are a popular choice for professional contractors and mechanics, so it's no wonder they are found in snocross mechanical trailers nationwide. Fans at National ACSS events can see for themselves at the Makita demonstration booths.
