2011 AMA Flat Track

The AMA Pro Harley-Davidson Insurance Flat Track Championship has announced that Saddlemen – a leading producer of motorcycle seats, saddles, and luggage – has, for the second year in a row, stepped up to sponsor the series’ prestigious Rookie of the Year Award.

The Saddlemen Rookie of the Year Award will pay out a total of $7,500 at the series’ year-end awards banquet, to be shared $5,000/$2,500 between the championship’s top two Expert Rookies.

David Atlas (AMA Pro Racing Managing Member and COO) says:”We couldn’t be prouder to welcome Saddlemen back as the sponsor of this award.

“The sport of flat track has produced some of the greatest names in motorcycle racing, so it’s wonderfully fitting that a company of Saddlemen’s quality supports the recognition of its future stars.”

Tom Seymour (Saddlemen President) says: “The sport of flat track is exciting, a truly unique form of American racing. There is no better racing competition available anywhere in the world. It is my goal to make sure the next generation of racers is supported – that’s why we sponsor the Rookie of the Year program.”

Participating Expert rookies will be identified by a Saddlemen patch on their racing leathers and Saddlemen decal on their competition motorcycles. In 2010, PJ Jacobsen took the Saddlemen Rookie of the Year honors, but with the depth of emerging talent in the 2011 field, the contest is more wide-open than ever.
