CM Opens “The Podium” At ERX

RPM_5852

Carlson Moto is putting the finishing touches on The Podium, their new event center which was recently completed adjacent to the team’s snocross and off-road truck race shop on the ERX property in Elk River, Minnesota.

We had a chance to tour the multi-purpose office space and entertainment venue that was first put into action during the Red Bull Snow Boundaries event. It has since been utilized on a weekly basis for ERX strategy sessions as well as off-site meetings for Sportech personnel. This summer the facility will host pre-race parties for sponsors AMSOIL and FOX in advance of the July 16-17 TORC race which will be happening for the first time at ERX.

Amenities include a complete kitchen area and sofa lounge with massive fireplace surrounded by a spacious main room with tons of natural lighting. Several rustic wood overhangs feature a sampling of Chris Carlson’s vintage sled collection, along with a number of wild game mounts. It’s pretty much an over-sized ultimate man cave.

In addition to the “fun-space” there is a dedicated meeting room with the latest in multi-media capabilities, as well as a large conference space with two adjoining offices.

The back two-thirds of the new building houses the CM team’s two transporters and the balance of the vintage collection. In May this space will be used for a great charitable cause as over 500 volunteers assemble to package 100,000 meals for the Feed My Starving Children program.
