DAYTONA BEACH, FL – August 17, 2022 – (Motor Sports NewsWire) – Progressive American Flat Track is excited to announce a three-year extension to its agreement with Dunlop Motorcycle Tires to remain the Official Tire of Progressive AFT through the 2025 season. The agreement will extend Dunlop’s support of Progressive AFT to more than ten years, but more importantly will show an increase in their commitment to the sport, the specifics of which will be announced ahead of the 2023 season.
Dunlop has been an instrumental partner to the sport for decades, with the most notably with the 2020 introduction of the DT4 – the first new flat track tire in four decades – which now serves as the spec tire across all three Progressive American Flat Track classes. Since its arrival, the DT4 has lived up to Dunlop’s promise of delivering quality and durability, without losing any of the trademark feel that made its predecessor the benchmark for professional flat track for decades.
“Progressive American Flat Track has seen tremendous growth and exposure over the past eight years since we began supplying Dunlop tires. Developing and building tires in the U.S. has been a key component of our strategy and Progressive AFT has provided an opportunity to showcase that to an audience of passionate enthusiasts,” said Mike Buckley, Dunlop’s Senior VP of Sales, Marketing, and R&D. “We look forward to evolving and expanding our support of this truly American sport.”
Dunlop Motorcycle Tire has been developing and manufacturing tires in its Buffalo, New York, manufacturing facility for over one hundred years. Known throughout the world for its innovative R&D capabilities and tire technology, Dunlop routinely exceeds even the highest expectations of riders on the street and the track.
“Dunlop is more than just a sponsor or tire provider, they are a strategic partner of Progressive American Flat Track,” said Gene Crouch, COO of AMA Pro Racing. “The quality and consistency of the Dunlop DT4 tire is one of the key components behind the incredible on-track action at Progressive AFT events. We appreciate Dunlop’s continued commitment and look forward to showcasing their world-class racing tires as we embark on the next era of growth for the sport.”
