Celebration Of Speed By Fox Racing

Fox Racing pays tribute to all their partners and champions

With the final two rounds of the MXGP series here stateside and the AMA Lucas Oil Motocross Series wrapped up, Fox Racing decided it was the perfect time to throw a party. Basically, Fox Racing’s Celebration Of Speed was a sincere and heartfelt “thank you” to all of Fox’s partners, race teams, and racers, many of whom are current champions. Jeff Emig and Ricky Carmichael were co-hosts of the event, and through playful jibes they invited each current champion on stage to congratulate and thank them for being part of the Fox family. Pretty much every Fox and Shift (which is part of Fox) rider were in attendance and were enjoying some bench racing and just relaxing.
