Current has entered into a partnership with Mod Kids USA, the off-road motorsports platform. The partnership begins with the sponsorship of three documentary films that will feature an elite class of teens that race modified karts — known as Mod Karts. In addition, drivers Mia Chapman and Chris Nunes will serve as brand ambassadors for Current. Mia and Chris are both accomplished racers and popular on the race circuit.
Mod Karts are custom-built, single-seat mini race trucks with 450cc quad engines that can reach a speed of 90 mph. Their drivers, aged 12 to 15 years old, compete nationwide in off-road short course races.
Mia Chapman is a high school sophomore and competitive cheerleader who, at 15 years-old, has won seven junior kart championships.
After competing for 8 years and winning championships in motocross, at age 12 Chris Nunes switched to off-road truck racing. Now 16 years-old, he is an established Mod Kart champion.
“Our partnership with Mod Kid USA aligns perfectly with our goal of empowering teens to invest in the things that matter most to them,” said Stuart Sopp, CEO of Current. “The energy, ambition and individualism of both Chris and Mia makes them ideal ambassadors for Current.”
Current is the presenting sponsor of three upcoming Mod Kids USA films. Each film covers an entire season and follows the Mod Kids teens as they build their karts and compete in one of the most competitive off-road truck series in the country.
“I love that Current believes in our vision of shining a light on these teens, and helping us reach a new breed of young race fans,” said Mod Kids COO Chris James. “Current’s timely support will help us reach a broader audience when we release our films.”
