AMA Pro Racing Announces Cortech as Sponsor for Live Timing and Scoring


Chuck Palmgren on the #38 Daniel S. Gurney (DSG) Yamaha parallel twin leads '69 AMA Grand National Champion Mert Lawwill on the #7 Harley-Davidson Factory XR750, with Shell Thuett-sponsored Hank Scott bringing up the rear on his #14 Yamaha, during heat race action at the New York State Fairgrounds in September of 1975. The Camel Pro Series/AMA Flat Track Grand National Championship Series annual stop on the Syracuse Mile was a very well attended event by riders and fans alike, and was one of the last East Coast Nationals in those days before the series headed back to the West Coast to wrap up the year's championship.

AMA Pro Racing Welcomes Cortech as Presenting Sponsor of AMA Pro Live Timing & Scoring

DAYTONA BEACH, FL (March 10, 2011) - AMA Pro Racing is pleased to announce the addition of Cortech apparel and gear as Presenting Sponsor of AMA Pro Racing's Live Timing & Scoring functions on www.amaproracing.com and AMA Pro's new mobile applications.

Well known for their high-performance lines of motorcycle apparel and accessories, Cortech's support of the AMA Pro Road Racing series also includes the $2,000 "Fast Man Standing" year-end rider reward, which will acknowledge the AMA Pro National Guard SuperBike competitor who logs the most fastest-lap designations during the season's races.

"We're very excited to have Cortech join our group of sponsors," said COO and Managing Member David Atlas. "Our new mobile applications and enhanced Live Timing and Scoring are essential parts of our continued efforts to deliver more-accessible information to our fans and participants, and we're so pleased to have Cortech support this incredibly important facet of our sport."

"We're extremely proud to be involved with AMA Pro Racing," said Helmet House Director of Marketing Richard Kimes. "Helmet House was a long-time supporter of the series under the Shoei name, but this is a first for Cortech and very exciting across the board. We're looking forward to a great 2011 season."

The AMA Pro Road Race season kicks off this weekend at Daytona International Speedway, an event that culminates in Saturday's running of the legendary Daytona 200.

And here are the new links to AMA Pro Racing's Live Timing apps on the net. These are also listed on the left side column of the site under the 'AMA' info lists, and unlike previous years, the links stay static, in other words no changing from event to event.

Hopefully the season-opening bugs/problems associated with the Live Timing and Scoring applications are and will be taken care of by the next events on each series' respective schedule. In defense of AMA Pro Flat Track, the problems encountered during the opening round one event at the Daytona Short Track were experienced only during qualifying rounds, and by the time the evening's program commenced for heat races, the site was working well with no apparent glitches seen for the rest of the two rounds.

However, another red ink spot on the chart for AMA Pro Road Racing, to go along with all of the other problems during the shortened Daytona 200, the LT&S did go down after the lengthy red flag, and never got back running by the time the event finally wrapped up. Hopefully this will not happen again throughout the year!
