It's been another busy week out of Daytona Beach (besides the opening of the 2016 AMA Pro Flat Track Grand National Championship season) with the announcement of the return of two big sponsors to the series. Both City National Bank (returning for the 2nd year) and Vance & Hines (returning for their 3rd year) will be coming back on board as contingency and series sponsors for the 2016 AMA Pro Flat Track Grand National Championship Harley-Davidson GNC1 presented by Vance & Hines series.
In the shot above, Brad Baker waves to the crowd from the podium after taking the win in heat race #1 at round 5 of the 2015 AMA Pro Flat Track Grand National Championship Harley-Davidson GNC1 presented by Vance & Hines season at the Allen County Fairgrounds-hosted Lima Half-Mile on June 28 on the #6 Harley-Davidson Motor Co/Screaming Eagle Performance Products/Arai Helmets-sponsored and factory supported H-D XR750.
The powers that be out of Florida have done a super job of getting more sponsors and returning sponsors on board for The Rolling Thunder Show, and these two inclusions that were announced this last week are prime examples of the new regimes work at trying to pump new and returning monies into the series to help out the riders, teams and ultimately the fans.
Check out the full press releases below to see all of the particulars as announced by AMA Pro Racing.
