2011 AMA Pro Flat Track Series Gets H-D Insurance Sponsorship

Harley-Davidson Insurance has recently reached an agreement with AMA Pro Racing to become the title sponsor of the AMA Pro Flat Track Championship and the official insurer of the series. Under the terms of the new agreement, the series will be known as the AMA Pro Harley-Davidson Insurance Flat Track Championship.

In addition, Harley-Davidson Insurance will also provide $100,000 in rider bonus awards for participants in the Grand National Championship, based on final season standings.

In order to be eligible for the bonus award, each expert-level rider must display a Harley-Davidson Insurance logo on his or her riding gear and on their front number plate during all series events.

The Harley-Davidson Motor Company will separately provide a $66,000 season contingency fund for Twins riders who compete on Harley-Davidson motorcycles in the series' twelve Twins events. The Twins event contingency will pay out a total of $5,500 in contingency per event to the first- through eighth-place positions.

"Harley-Davidson's history with dirt track racing goes deep into the roots of the sport and we are excited to step up our involvement though this Harley-Davidson Insurance title sponsorship," said Steve Piehl, Harley-Davidson Director of Customer Experience. "We think the loyalty of flat track fans makes this series the perfect venue for Harley-Davidson Insurance, which is designed exclusively for Harley riders, to reach a large fan base of passionate motorcyclists."

"We're thrilled to welcome Harley-Davidson Insurance as AMA Pro Flat Track's new title sponsor, and by extension the entire Harley-Davidson family,"
said AMA Pro COO and Managing Member David Atlas. "The company has long played a hugely important role in the history of this sport, and their investment in our 2011 series proves they'll continue to do so in its very bright future."
