KYMCO USA Sponsors AMA Pro Racing


2012 AMA Pro Racing Sponsorship

KYMCO USA has become an official sponsor of AMA Pro Racing in a multi-year partnership that has the two entities working closely together on a host of promotional opportunities to create KYMCO brand awareness among fans of the top motorcycle racing series in the nation.

This new partnership gives KYMCO USA access to display and promote KYMCO brand products at AMA Pro Road Racing & AMA Pro Flat Track events, offering KYMCO USA paddock displays, banners, PA announcements, website and social media inclusion, KYMCO logo placement, promotional rights to AMA Pro Road Racing & AMA Pro Flat Track series marks, hospitality events and a host of other opportunities. Also a part of the agreement, AMA Pro Racing garners the use of an initial fleet of 10 Agility 125 scooters to be used at events.

David Atlas (Chief Operating Officer of AMA Pro Racing) says: “We are excited to begin this partnership with KYMCO. The company has a longstanding reputation for manufacturing high quality motor scooters, which we have been using in our paddock for quite some time. During our event weekends, when time is of the essence, our staff members will now be able to rely on the always-dependable Agility 125 to get them where they need to go.”

Bruce Ramsey (Vice President of Operations, KYMCO USA) says: “The folks at AMA Pro Racing understand two-wheelers, so it’s a great compliment that they utilize KYMCO brand products to accomplish their tasks at AMA Pro Road Racing & AMA Pro Flat Track events.

“We’re thrilled to be a part of the nation’s #1 motorcycle race organization and anticipate an all-around great relationship as we together promote the sport, recreation, transport and utility inherent in two-wheeling.”

The 12-round AMA Pro Road Racing series launched March 15 in Daytona Beach, Fla. and ends October 7 in New Orleans, La. The 19-round AMA Pro Flat Track series started March 15 in Daytona Beach and wraps up October 13 in Pomona, Calif.
