Joe Gibbs Racing MX selects Textron Off Road as Official Utility Vehicle Brand Hot
It seems like many companies from Can-Am to Polaris are partnering with racing teams to promote their machines. Textron Off Road can now be added to the list as it is now Joe Gibbs Racing MX (JGRMX) team’s official utility vehicle brand. JGRMX will use a fleet of Textron Off Road Stampede 4x4s to assist in rider transportation, track maintenance, and whatever else is needed while traveling throughout North America. The Stampede has plenty of power to tackle any job that JGR throws its way, so much storage space, there is plenty of room to store all of their tools and equipment.
“We have been thrilled with the performance and functionality of the Stampede we have at our training facility. Our track has a lot of steep hills and the Stampede has no trouble hauling our guys and gear. We used a Stampede XTR during our annual photo shoot and it made moving the camera and lighting equipment easy,” said Jeremy Albrecht, the Autotrader/Suzuki/JGRMX Team manager.
The Stampede has been on the market for about a year, and ATV ESCAPE had a chance to test it back when the Stampede was released. We were impressed with it along with the innovation of the extended-cab aspect of the Stampede. You can read our review at the link below. The four-seat Stampede XTR provides the same 80HP EFI engine package, and a class-leading 30-cubic-feet of storage, which offer plenty of room to haul a bunch of gear. There is doubt JGRMX will enjoy having Stampedes as a part of the team. Keep an eye out because we are receiving our Stampede demo unit shortly, which will result in a new review and review video.
