The team at Chicago Pneumatic has a history of making hard-working, long-lasting tools. And the folks they sign on to represent them and their brand are just as tough. So it’s hardly a surprise that they’d re-up their sponsorship with UTV enduro champ Marc Burnett. We spent some serious time in the Chicago Pneumatic booth with Burnett at this year’s SEMA show in Las Vegas, and we can promise no brand had a sponsored athlete who worked harder than this guy. Great to see this relationship continue for the 2018 season!
ROCK HILL, SC January 26, 2018 — Chicago Pneumatic, international maker of automotive and industrial tools, has announced that their partnership agreement with champion UTV racer Marc Burnett will continue for another year.
Burnett’s racing career includes a long list of victories, most recently as the 2017 SCORE International Off-Road Racing points champion in the Pro UTV Forced Induction class. His 10th place finish at November’s historic 50th anniversary BAJA 1000 pushed him to the title after a successful year of racing with Chicago Pneumatic tools at every stop.
“I love their tools,” said Burnett about signing up for his third year of sponsorship with Chicago Pneumatic. “I’m really excited to be part of their team.” Burnett says he loves Chicago Pneumatic tools because of their reliability and innovation. “It’s the best stuff on the market,” he says.
Burnett most recently took 2nd out of more than 100 teams at the Casey Folks Parker 250 UTV Winter Nationals event in Parker, Arizona. He is looking forward to his front-row start at the Mint 400 in March, and recently announced he is building a special vehicle to participate in Ultra4 Racing in 2018.
Chicago Pneumatic has sponsored MBMotorsports since 2016, and is proud to continue partnering with Marc Burnett’s successful race team.
ABOUT MARC BURNETT
When he’s not winning off road endurance races, Burnett manages more than a 100 FMX shows domestically and internationally as president of FreestyleMX, Inc. Some days he plays the entrepreneur, some days it’s weatherman but, on the days he plays mechanic, Marc is a fan of Chicago Pneumatic tools.
“On tour, we ride hard, break things and have no time to mess with tools that can’t keep up. I like CP tools ‘cause they take the worst beating we can give them and still work perfectly,” said Burnett.
