NOVEMBER 26 2008, La Mirada, CA – Makita U.S.A., Inc., manufacturer of high quality industrial power tools and accessories has teamed up with Scheuring Speed Sports for the upcoming 2008-2009 ISOC SnoCross season. The team’s first race is the Amsoil Duluth National in Duluth, MN. coming up on November 28-30, 2008.
The ISOC (International Series of Champions) season consists of nine races including the Winter X-games. The Scheuring Speed Sports team consists of two top racers D.J. Eckstrom and Shaun Crapo, as well as one promising semi-pro star in Ryan Carey.
“I am beyond excited to be partnering with the premier industrial tool manufacturer in the world,” said Steve Scheuring, owner of Scheuring Speed Sports. “Using Makita Industrial Power Tools on our race team for the past ten yearshas been a very positive experience.  Our race environment could be best described as one of toughest in all forms of racing.  Racing and testing in snow with temperatures reaching subzero at times puts all our equipment to the test.  All of our Makita Tools have passed the test with flying colors.  To take our relationship with Makita Industrial tools to the next level is a huge milestone for us. This is going to be a great year for the AMSOIL Synthetic Lubricants/U.S. Air Force/Makita Industrial Power Tools SnoCross team.” 

Scheuring Speed Sports is also backed by Amsoil Racing, The U.S. Airforce, Polaris, and Jeff Foster Trucking.
