Founded in 2008 by Joe Fox, race car driver, entrepreneur and North Carolina native, Dirtball constructs eco-friendly clothing and gear for the active individual.

Most companies spend their money on ad agencies, TV commercials, radio spots, and billboards to tell you how good their products are. Monster Energy chose none of the above. Instead they endeavor to support the scene, their bands, their athletes and their fans. Monster backs athletes so they can make a career out of their passion. In addition, the company promotes concert tours, so their favorite bands can visit their fans’ hometowns. Monster celebrates with their fans and riders by throwing parties and making the coolest events imagined into a reality.
