RANCHO CUCAMONGA, CA – January 5, 2023 – (Motor Sports NewsWire) – After a highly successful 2022 series, Dunlop is set to take on the 2023 season of the Monster Energy AMA Supercross Championship, increasing support and adding to their esteemed Dunlop Family. Dunlop, as the longest running sponsor of Monster Energy Supercross, will continue to be the “Official Motorcycle Tire” with trackside support available to all racers for tire fitting and technical assistance.
Last year, for the 13th consecutive season, Dunlop riders swept all three Supercross championships including all 102 available podium opportunities throughout the 17 rounds. This brings Dunlop’s unparalleled total to 173 AMA SX and MX Championships, an accomplishment far and above any other tire manufacturer. Overall, in the premier 450SX class, Dunlop riders finished in the top 14 positions, and 19 of the top 20, once again confirming the Dunlop Domination.
Dunlop is proud to continue their support and relationships with all their top teams from 2022 and pleased to add the Muc-Off/FXR/ClubMX, Firepower Froth Honda Racing and BarX Suzuki teams to the Dunlop Family for 2023!
“Having raced on Dunlop’s for as long as I can remember, a big advantage to staying with the brand is the predictable performance of the Dunlop tire throughout the race. Having consistent feel and traction gives me the confidence to push my limits on the track,” says 2020 and 2022 Monster Energy AMA Supercross Champion, Eli Tomac.
Team Dunlop Elite alumni, Carson Mumford, added, “I’m so pumped to be back with my Team D family. Running Dunlop’s will definitely help me and my BarX Suzuki teammates go to the next level in 2023.”
With this support, of the AMA Pro riders earning top 100 racing numbers in 2023, the first 46 race on Dunlop’s, and over 80% of those top 100-numbered riders will be on Dunlop tires! Dunlop continues to use these top professional Supercross and Motocross racers to push the tires to the absolute limit to help develop new technologies utilized in Geomax tires.
“Having all these teams and riders choose to race on Dunlop tires shows our dedication to the sport, our product development and support is at the highest level!” said Mike Buckley, Dunlop Motorcycle’s Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “Without the leadership and hard work of our professional racing management directed by Broc Glover and Brian Fleck, none of this would be possible. Supercross riders have a choice in tires, and we want to thank all of the teams and riders who choose to race on Dunlop tires in 2023.”
