Quads outfitted with Motowoz suspension racked up wins in 2009
Motowoz Performance Systems had a very successful 2009 ATV racing season. Five of its sponsored riders won six national titles in their respective classes in the 2009 ITP/Moose Racing AMA ATV Motocross Championships. Four youth riders and one in the amateur Women’s division earned class crowns after the season finale at Loretta Lynn’s on August 16.
In 2009 Motowoz-supported racers tallied the fastest lap in their classes 117 times, notched 104 moto wins and 46 overall class victories. Alex Szymborski, Holt, Mich., was especially fast on his Cobra ATV outfitted with Motowoz shocks. He won a total of 16 events this year in three classes and both the 90 Auto Jr. and 70 SS class championships. He just missed a third title, losing to fellow Motowoz rider Jacob French of Zimmerman, Minn. French trailed Szymborski in points after the first three rounds due to a few mechanical issues, but rebounded and recorded six wins in the last seven events to secure the title.
“We may not have shocks on every bike, but those that do [run our shocks] win and Motowoz-backed riders had the highest win percentage in the series.” says Jim Jaworski, owner of Motowoz. “It was great to see Jacob [French], the son of a dedicated Motowoz dealer J&J Racing, and Alex [Szymborski] compete. They put on such an epic battle. I congratulate all five national champions for their successful seasons and thank all the racers who used Motowoz products.”

Jaworski thinks the successful 2009 season will lead to a bigger and better 2010.
“I have said from the beginning, it’s all about the setup. It’s always important to think outside the box and never get trapped into one way of thinking,” says Jaworski. “This is never truer than when working with mini quads. Each setup we make is custom to that individual rider and clearly our success on the track proves we know what we’re doing.”
Motowoz definitely has its fingers on the pulse of youth quad racing and has established components for these minis, but Jaworski is quick to point out that only 35 percent of his business is youth sales. Most of its suspension sales are for full-size ATVs. Although the company’s most recent success involves motocross racing, Jaworski said Motowoz shocks have been thoroughly tested in the most extreme terrain, including the Baja 1000.
Kayle Dyer’s championship ride in the Women’s class also shows how much Motowoz knows about full-size sport quad suspensions.
“I would love to continue the current success and have it carry over to some other racing series. I would love to get some exposure in the WORCS series,” says Jaworski.
Motowoz’s experience has led to the development of several exclusive features and the use of high-grade materials. The CNC-machined shocks feature billet aluminum, heat-resistant oil, Adjustable Spring Progression for simple and convenient tuning, industry-leading compression and rebound adjusters, Triple Seal Technology, Velocity Sensitive Valving and more.
