Gates Corp. Announces 2017 G-Force Sponsored Racers

A record number of racers submitted applications, making the selection for 2017 sponsorships extremely competitive, said Gates. This year, Gates G-Force is sponsoring 20 race teams from across the U.S., including nine female racers across both snow and dirt categories.

gates-g-force-logoGates Corp., a global diversified manufacturer of industrial, automotive, heavy-duty, and powersports aftermarket products, has announced its G-Force-sponsored racer lineup for the 2017 season. These sponsored racers participate in an assortment of snow and dirt events, including: snowmobiling, snowmobile drag racing, snowmobile cross-country, ATV, side-by-side and CVT racing.

A record number of racers submitted applications, making the selection for 2017 sponsorships extremely competitive, said Gates. This year, Gates G-Force is sponsoring 20 race teams from across the U.S., including nine female racers across both snow and dirt categories. In addition, G-Force is sponsoring its youngest racer ever, 8-year-old Kaden Danbury of Vista, California.

Throughout the 2017 season, G-Force sponsored racers will represent and be supported by the Gates G-Force belt line. G-Force belts are leading components for transferring power on ATVs, UTVs, snowmobiles or other powersports equipment and are designed to handle the most arduous off-road and racing conditions with ease, according to Gates.

“We are excited to share this year’s lineup of Gates G-Force sponsored racers,” said Drew Conkling, Gates Powersports Belt Line manager. “We had a large number of applications and it was challenging to make the final selections, but we are confident that our final roster best represents the exciting and diverse powersports category. Many of these racers tell us that switching to G-Force belts has been one of the best changes to their racing programs. We are honored to support these racers and looking forward to what 2017 brings.”
