DENVER, Colo. (July 31, 2012) - Dunkin' Donuts, America's favorite all-day, everyday stop for coffee and baked goods, along with Baskin-Robbins, the world's largest chain of ice cream specialty shops, is teaming up with M1 PowerSports to bring AMA Pro National Guard SuperBike racing back to South Florida's Homestead-Miami Speedway on September 21 - 23, 2012. Competitors and fans attending the Triumph Big Kahuna Miami presented by Dunlop Tire and LeoVince, will have a chance to taste two of America's most recognizable brands. Dunkin' Donuts and Baskin-Robbins, in conjunction with M1 PowerSports, will give fans the opportunity to taste the great variety of flavors offered by the brands. Complimentary samples of Dunkin' Donuts iced coffee and sweet tea will be available throughout Homestead-Miami Speedway. Fans are also invited to explore their taste buds at the Baskin-Robbins booth while indulging in the event.
"To have these two out-of-industry sponsors join us for the Big Kahuna Miami is almost a new frontier for us and I couldn't be happier about this new partnership," said Cameron Gray, CEO of M1 PowerSports. "Dunkin' Donuts and Baskin- Robbins are two nationally-recognized brands that we all grew up with and know very well. Dunkin' Donuts coffee and donuts are simply amazing, and everyone loves Baskin-Robbins. It's as American as it gets. Having them support GEICO Motorcycle AMA Pro Road Racing and M1 PowerSports is really getting outside the box and by bringing in these two brands I'm hopeful that this will grow into something bigger in the future."
