Buffalo, NY: Broc Glover, Dunlop’s Senior Manager, Motorcycle Off-Road, was awarded the Monster Energy AMA Supercross Lifetime Achievement Award at the season-ending award banquet in Las Vegas, NV. Glover, who spearhead’s Dunlop’s Supercross, Motocross and off-road racing efforts, had this to say about the prestigious award.
“I feel very fortunate that I have been able to turn my passion for motorcycle racing into a career that has gone well beyond my years as a racer. I really want to thank the people at Feld Motorsports for this award, as well as all my past fellow competitors and peers, and the entire racing community that I have the pleasure to work with. Of course, I would also like to thank the Dunlop trackside crew and everyone back at Dunlop headquarters in Buffalo, NY, who work so hard to support the AMA Supercross and Motocross paddock. Three years ago, Dunlop stepped up an already high level of support in the AMA Pro paddock, and this program is something I am very proud to be a part of.”
Dunlop-sponsored riders have won every AMA Pro Supercross and Motocross championship in 2010, 2011 and all three Supercross championships in 2012 with Ryan Villopoto, Eli Tomac and Justin Barcia.
