Camso renews partnership with ECS Conx2share Series
CLARKSBURG, Mass. (December 21, 2016) — One of the most well-known and respected manufacturers of rubber tracks for off-road vehicles of all kinds is renewing its partnership with winter's most exciting sport.
Officials at East Coast Snocross (ECS) are pleased to announce that Camso, the worldwide leader in snowmobile tracks and ATV track systems, is back on board for the 2017 season.
"We're extremely proud to have Camso return for what we feel is shaping up to be an exciting 2017 season," series owner Kurt Gagne said. "They represent high quality and have supported sled racing of all kinds for many years. We're honored to have their renewed support and will again be promoting Camso tracks to our fans throughout the season. We welcome them back to our team."
Camso serves the material handling, construction, agriculture and powersports industries by manufacturing and distributing off-road tires, wheels, rubber tracks and undercarriage systems. Camso is a customer-focused, world-class manufacturer and service supplier of high-performance products that meet the needs of the off-the-road vehicle market.
On the snowmobile side of operations, Camso precisely engineers its tracks to deliver exactly the kind of performance you're looking for in your snowmobile. Every track they build is optimized for weight, traction, strength, flotation and even aerodynamics – not to mention affordability, longevity and sheer fun. Over 90% of all new snowmobiles made today are equipped with Camso tracks.
Bruce Dashnaw is Sales and Marketing Director for Powersports at Camso, and is based in Plattsburgh, New York. The plant in Plattsburgh employs roughly 180 people making tracks for snowmobiles and ATVs. Camso's corporate offices are located in Magog, Quebec.

"Last winter, we informed our dealers and distributors that although we changed the name of our company (from Camoplast), we were still passionate powersports enthusiasts committed to producing the same high-quality tracks snowmobilers have come to expect from our company for many years," Dashnaw said.
"East Coast Snocross provided us with a direct connection to our customers in New England. We're thrilled to be back on board for 2017, and hope ECS fans will consider our products for their snowmobile and other off-road recreational needs."
East Coast Snocross Conx2share Series, presented by Woody's Traction and FXR, is an ISR-affiliated sanctioning body for snowmobile racing in the northeastern United States. ECS maintains a regional circuit intended to keep grassroots snocross racing healthy in this part of the country, while also cultivating new talent for tomorrow's factory-backed national Pro teams.
“I was really happy to get the win on Saturday,” Brunelle said. “I got the holeshot, and never looked back. I just kept a steady pace the whole race, and it paid off. On Sunday, I had a couple of issues and decided not to push it. I'm thrilled with our results for my team and our great sponsors.”
Poirier, (Ingles Performance/Ski-doo) of St. Theodore, Quebec, slotted into second behind Dahlgren at the start of Sunday's final, but quickly found his way around the Swede and led from lap 2 to the finish. Dahlgren settled for second, while George capped a consistent weekend with a third-place finish.
Cody Paolella (Team Southside/Polaris) swept the Pro Lite class at Snow Ridge, nipping Wade Acker in a 10-lap tussle on Saturday while fellow Sport graduate Joe Bishop filled out the podium in third. On Sunday, local rider Andrew Bristol followed Paolella across the stripe for second while Acker powered his way to third.
“I think the weather was perfect and snow conditions were good,” Paolella said. “It was a little different to race on a ski hill. The downhill part made it challenging by having to use the brake to get through the bumps. The track was pretty wide with some good jumps, but I'd still say it was important to get a good start because the snow dust was pretty bad. I'm super pleased to sweep both finals.”
In Sport class action, Bristol held off a hard-charging Marco Travaglini and Dalton Jacquier for top honors in Saturday's Super Stock final. On Sunday, Travaglini found redeption as he outgunned Jamie Vanderaa and Jeff Roylance for top honors. This class is where tomorrow's Pro Lite stars hone their skills, and the 2015 season is delivering some great racing from these young athletes.
Other big winners over the weekend at Snow Ridge include Nykea Williams (Pro Women Sat. and Sun.); Bruce Gaspardi Jr. (Plus 25 Sat. and Sun.); Michael Newman (Jr. 16-17 Sat.); and Anthony Paige (Jr. 16-17 Sunday). Congratulations to all of our final round winners in Turin on a job well done.
East Coast Snocross would like to thank Snow Ridge owner Brad Horn, Russ Horn and the entire staff for hosting Round 4. The warmth and hospitality extended to our racing fraternity was second to none, and this facility is ideal for snocross on the famed Tug Hill plateau. While trail riders have frequented the Tug Hill region for decades, racers are quickly becoming fond of it, as well.
Teams will now prepare for a trip to western New York this coming weekend, Feb. 6-7, to join with ISOC at the Seneca Allegany Casino in Salamanca for the Eastern Nationals. This is ISOC's only race in the east, and ECS athletes will be looking to impress the big teams.
East Coast Snocross, presented by AMSOIL, Woody's Traction and FXR, is the eastern regional affiliate of ISOC. ECS strives to maintain a healthy level of competition in grassroots snocross, while also cultivating new talent for tomorrow's factory-backed national teams.
