Army Guard Extends AMA Racing Sponsorship

AMA Pro Racing

Officials from AMA Pro Road Racing and the Army National Guard announced Wednesday the continuation of the Army National Guard’s sponsorship of AMA Pro Road Racing’s premier National Guard SuperBike class.

The Army National Guard is the oldest component of the U.S. Armed Forces and one of the longest enduring U.S. institutions, operating in all 50 states, D.C. and three U.S. territories. This will be the Army National Guard’s third consecutive year of involvement with AMA Pro Road Racing as the primary sponsor of the elite SuperBike class.

David Atlas (AMA Pro Chief Operating Officer) says: "We are very proud of our association with the Army National Guard. To help support the important recruiting efforts of the Army National Guard is something we take very seriously.

"The overall support of the many men and women serving our country at home and abroad makes all of us at AMA Pro very proud to be associated with the greatest military institution in the world."

The Army National Guard and AMA Pro have a dedicated series of actions and activities at each AMA Pro Road Racing event that provide for recruitment and exposure to the many exciting opportunities available in the Army National Guard.

The fast paced environment of AMA Pro National Guard SuperBike racing and the other exciting classes of motorcycle racing on tap at AMA Pro Road Racing events attracts a high-energy, dedicated fan base that provide a high degree of potential candidates for recruitment in the Army National Guard.

In addition, the National Guard sponsors the winning Michael Jordan Motorsports team with new rider Roger Lee Hayden riding the iconic No. 54 in 2011. Last year, The National Guard Jordan team took their historic first victories in the AMA Pro National Guard SuperBike class at Daytona International Speedway.

This year’s AMA Pro Road Racing season will kick off March 10-12, 2011 at Daytona International Speedway and will race throughout the country over the year.
