Buffalo, NY – Dunlop is pleased to announce its designation as Official Tire of AMA Pro Flat Track for the 2014 season through 2016. At AMA Pro Flat Track Grand Nationals for 2014, Dunlop will take over exclusive sales and service of the product currently produced by The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company. Throughout 2014, Dunlop will work to industrialize production of the current tire at its Buffalo, NY manufacturing facility with scheduled production to begin late in 2014.
Dunlop has been the official tire sponsor of AMA Pro Road Racing since 2009 and continues to expand support of professional motorcycle racing in the United States. “We’re very excited to have Dunlop on hand at events this season for distribution and service purposes,” said Dan Johnsen, Director of AMA Flat Track.
