AMSOIL R/C Trucks Get Military Polish

Partnerships behind the scenes in racing are just as important as putting a logo on the side of a car, truck or bike. AMSOIL is lucky to work with great series partners and people that promote our products and brand at events away from the track, many times they are at events that have nothing to do with racing.

Robi Powers has worked on our behalf in snowmobile racing over the past five years and is also a dedicated partner with the U.S. Military. Robi has announced live sporting events (AMSOIL World Championship Snowmobile Derby), major U.S. sporting events and the Winter Olympics. He also coordinates celebrity visits for our troops serving overseas.

Powers recently brought a pair of Traxxas R/C Slash trucks to military visits with Armed Forces Entertainment in Washington, D.C. and Wright Patt Air Base in Dayton, Ohio. The AMSOIL and Traxxas trucks were a big hit with the troops. AMSOIL will be working with Powers to bring the AMSOIL themed trucks oversees in the future, bringing great promotion to the Traxxas TORC Series presented by AMSOIL, as well as a small piece of home style racing to our troops abroad.

The 2010 TORC Series kicks off June 19-20 in Crandon, Wis. Until then, we'll see you at the races.
