FOX is pleased to announce the return of its ATV Grassroots sponsorship program for 2012. The grassroots race program is a great opportunity for amateur racers of all levels to receive huge discounts on FOX products for the 2012 race season. We will accept applications for the 2012 season from October 15, 2011 through March 15, 2012. Please send your resumes to psgrassroots@foxracingshox.com and be sure to include basic information like contact info, racer results, and your plans for the 2012 season.

For the past four years, FOX has owned the top step of the podium at AMA/ATVA Nationals, GNCCs, and WORCS series events. Amateur riders who ride on FOX suspension systems will also get trackside support, running the same technology that has led riders like Chris Borich, John Natalie, Josh Frederick, Josh Creamer, Dustin Wimmer, and more to several championships over the last few years.

The 2012 FOX grassroots team will have the option of upgrading their new Gen II FLOAT X EVOLs to the Kashima-coated version that our factory-level riders have been testing for the past year with great success. Our Kashima-coated air sleeves and reservoirs reduce friction on the key surfaces of the shock absorber, resulting in a smoother action throughout the stroke of the shock.

With the 2012 season, FOX brings more support by utilizing a few of its key dealers for the ordering process. FOX is pleased to announce that Brothers Motorsports in Minnesota, Dirt Works in Missouri, Southside Sales and Service in Massachusetts, Janssen Motorsports in Wisconsin, Honda East in Ohio, and Temecula Motorsports in California will be assisting them with your orders.
See you on the podium!
