AMA Pro Racing and Wiseco Announce Sponsorship of 2012 AMA Pro Hillclimb Championship
NEWS May 17, 2012
DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (May 17, 2012) - AMA Pro Racing is honored to announce the addition of Wiseco as a sponsor of the 2012 AMA Pro Hillclimb Championship. Wiseco will be contributing to the 2012 Championship Rider Points Fund and providing support to AMA Pro Hillclimb riders. They will also be providing great opportunities for the fans to get to know their company and product as well.
"We are very excited to have Wiseco as a sponsor of the 2012 AMA Pro Hillclimb Championship," said Scott Campbell, President of the Professional Hillclimbers Association. "Our riders have used their products for many years, and it is great to see them recognize the dedication our riders have given to their company and the sport. Our goal this year was to step back into the motorcycle industry and get recognition by companies for our Series and we are thankful to Wiseco for doing that. I look forward to being able to build this partnership and continue the growth of the Series and for Wiseco."
This new partnership marks an important step in the process of building the sport of professional hillclimb racing. AMA Pro Hillclimb is proud to be joined by yet another company that supports the motorcycle industry and whose products are widely used in the Series. Because of the custom nature of the race machines, which run nitromethane as fuel, it is important for engine builders to use quality products, such as the forged pistons offered by Wiseco.
Wiseco carries a full line of engine products for nearly all 2 and 4-stroke powersports engines. Pistons are just a part of what Wiseco has to offer, manufacturing everything from forged clutch baskets to stroker cranks and connecting rods, all of which are widely utilized in the AMA Pro Hillclimb Series.
The 2012 AMA Pro Hillclimb season will kick off on June 3 at the White Rose Motorcycle Club in Jefferson, Pa. For more information on AMA Pro Hillclimb, please visit http://www.amaproracing.com/hc/.
