Traxxas is the Official Hobby-Class
Radio Control Truck of Monster Energy
Supercross!


Last year, Traxxas jumped into the Monster Energy Supercross series by sponsoring the Pro Circuit/Kawasaki 250 Lites team. We think it turned out pretty well--Jake Weimer and Christophe Pourcel went on to carry Traxxas to 250 East and 250 West Supercross Champion titles! For 2011, Traxxas is back in Supercross, now as a series sponsor! See the official press release below for the word direct from Monster Energy Supercross. Traxxas is also continuing to sponsor the Pro Circuit squad for 2011, so expect to see a lot of The Fastest Name In Radio Control® as the 2011 Monster Energy Supercross series roosts onto your TV screen and into a city near you!
 
 
 
Traxxas Becomes Official and Exclusive Hobby Class
Radio Control Truck of Monster Energy Supercross
 
AURORA, Ill. (December 29, 2010) – Feld Motor Sports® announced today that Traxxas “The Fastest Name In Radio Control®,” signed a multi-year agreement to be the official and exclusive hobby class radio control truck of Monster Energy Supercross, an FIM World Championship, that begins January 8, 2011 at Angel Stadium in Anaheim, Calif.
 
The agreement marks Traxxas’ inaugural partnership with Monster Energy Supercross, just two years after becoming a team sponsor of the Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki team. Traxxas’ support of the championship is in an effort to utilize Monster Energy Supercross to help promote their brand in a popular action sports industry appealing to a wider audience. 
 
“Traxxas is excited to sponsor Monster Energy Supercross for 2011,” said Mike Jenkins, President, Traxxas. “It’s a perfect fit. Supercross fans’ enthusiastic response to our sponsorship efforts in 2010 with the Pro Circuit team and Kawasaki’s Team Green amateur motocross program made the decision to move up to the championship’s sponsor an easy one. We’re looking forward to bringing high-performance Traxxas fun to an even wider audience in 2011. Monster Energy Supercross is an incredible sport to watch and the riders are supremely skilled athletes. Traxxas is proud to be The Official Hobby Class Radio-Controlled Truck of Supercross.”
 
In addition to being one of the highly-recognized sponsors of Monster Energy Supercross, Traxxas will receive traditional sponsorship benefits and exhibit space within the pit party at 16 races to showcase their try-me-track that will give fans a first-hand experience of the industry-leading Traxxas hobby-class radio-controlled product.
 
“We are excited to bring Traxxas on board for the 2011 season,” said Dave Prater, director of supercross. “Through Monster Energy Supercross, Traxxas products will be showcased to three-quarters of a million fans, which will be a great springboard for channeling their state-of-the-art R/C equipment.”
 
Traxxas was founded in 1986, and is the innovator of “ready to run” (RTR) radio-controlled models. Before the company popularized the concept, the radio-controlled hobby was built around kits that required assembly and painting, and did not include all the electronics required to operate them. Traxxas changed all that by offering professionally assembled models with the hobby-class performance of kits. Since then, “RTR” models have become the industry standard. Traxxas takes the concept further with “Ready-To-Race®,” and offers the fastest, most complete, highest-performance RTR models available.
 
Traxxas is The Fastest Name In Radio Control® and builds the fastest Ready-To-Race® R/C models in the world. Its fastest cars and trucks can top 70mph, with powerful nitro-burning 2-stroke engines and state-of-the-art brushless electric motors. Traxxas models are sold in hobby stores worldwide and online at Traxxas.com.
