DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (March 1, 2014) - AMA Pro Racing has appointed Dunlop to supply tires and service for the 2014 AMA Pro Flat Track Grand National Championship. Dunlop will attend AMA Pro Flat Track events throughout 2014 offering sales and service to competitors.
The 2013 AMA Pro Flat Track eligible tire regulations will remain the same for the 2014 season. Goodyear tires remain the correct spec tire and competitors will continue to use existing Goodyear offerings until further notice. Starting with the season-opening round at the DAYTONA Flat Track, Dunlop will be at events to offer sales and provide first-rate technical tire assistance for all AMA Pro Flat Track competitors.
Dunlop has been the official tire sponsor of AMA Pro Road Racing since 2009 and continues to grow their support of professional motorcycle racing in the United States. This existing relationship made it a natural evolution for the company to transition into AMA Pro Flat Track as well.
"We made the decision to work with Dunlop because they offer a service that directly suits our needs," said Dan Johnsen, Director of Flat Track. "We're very excited to have Dunlop on hand at events this season for distribution and service purposes."
Dunlop is planning an expanded media release with additional details of the new program at the season opening event at Daytona International Speedway.
DAYTONA Flat Track will once again play host to the AMA Pro Flat Track season opener as the series kicks off the 2014 season with a doubleheader on the quarter-mile lime rock track located outside Daytona International Speedway's west banking on March 13 and 14, 2014.
