Several announcements out of Daytona Beach this week include two sponsorships that will lend a big hand to the AMA Pro Flat Track Grand National Championship. Sunoco, the official fuel of AMA Pro Racing, will be again returning to The Rolling Thunder Show in what will be it's eighth season and will again be sponsoring the 'Go the Distance Award' for both the GNC1 and GNC2 classes. And in a new partnership for this year, Ohlins USA suspension will be coming aboard as sponsors of the 'Fastest Lap Award' in the GNC1 class.
