As was announced today in Daytona Beach, AMA Pro Racing is stepping up their efforts to bring more sponsorship to AMA Pro Flat Track by signing Warren, Ohio's Thom Duma Fine Jewelers as the official jeweler of the 2014 AMA Pro Flat Track Grand National Championship. The signing will see the 2014 AMA Grand National Champion earn a Rolex Daytona Cosmograph watch for his/her efforts in winning the overall championship at the end of the 16-race season.
With a lack of a title sponsor for the 2013 season, this effort in bringing in it's first top line quality sponsor for the upcoming season can only be viewed as a major plus for The Rolling Thunder Show, and shows the efforts that are being put forth by the folks on Fentress Blvd. in Daytona are going all out to try and help turn the state of the sport in terms of sponsorship dollars around for the new year.
With just 29 days left until the season kicks off in Daytona Beach on March 13-14, it's great to see that the powers that be in Florida are still working hard to try and bring in more sponsorship to the greatest racing show in the world on two wheels, and we applaud them for making this happen!
