Subscriber Growth

We have some of the most devoted readers in the industry. In 2019 we saw a growth of 18% from 2018 in our subscription sales. While the overall print industry may be shrinking, Racer X Illustrated is still thriving with even higher goals for 2021. With our in-depth perspective and industry leading coverage, every 2 out of 3 subscribers renews to Racer X Illustrated on a yearly basis for more content.

The Power of Print

There’s nothing like getting a fresh copy of your favorite magazine in the mail. Taking a time out to unplug from the noise on the internet, Racer X transports our readers into timeless motocross and supercross stories not found anywhere else. In this distraction-free zone, print ads have staying power:

  • The average magazine gets passed to at least 1-3 other people.
  • Magazines become collectors items and are picked up days, months or even years later.
  • Ad recall, comprehension & engagement help make lasting impressions in meaningful ways.
  • When leveraged with QR codes, they synergistically bridge the print/digital gap.
  • 90 percent of Racer X advertisers are repeat customers on a 9-12x rate year after year.

Going Digital

Ditching the previous flip book-pinch and zoom style, our award-winning, vertically scrolling digital version is seamlessly integrated with racerxonline.com for a more user-friendly experience with the ease of access being prioritized. Our digitally-enhanced pages are second-to-none and allow for multimedia and hyper-targeted linking direct to your product page. 

The most exciting partner feature is that all ads are located outside the paywall - meaning all paying and non-paying audiences have the chance to see your message, regardless of being a subscriber. 

Digital Flexibility

Unique to our digital offering is the ability to insert catalogs at a much cheaper rate than printing 1000’s of print copies. Leverage our digital audience for your next product catalog!

Dealer Penetration

Racer X is the favorite of parts-counter employees, who can influence sales directly at the dealership. They open the fresh box of magazines and read them first to see what’s hot before Racer X even hits the sales rack.

Consumer Influence

Racer X Magazine has shown over the years influence at all levels in the motocross industry food chain - consumers, dealer parts buyers and counter help, distributor buyers & road men and of course the ultimate customer - the rider himself or his parents.
