AURORA, Ill. – Feld Motor Sports announced today that Dunlop, the industry leader in tires, will provide trackside support at the upcoming AMSOIL AMA Amateur National Arenacross Championships (ANAC) on Sunday, May 5, from Las Vegas’ South Point Casino. The annual race hosts the world’s top amateur AMSOIL Arenacross racers in two full days of action that will determine which riders will earn a coveted #1 plate as an AMA National Champion.
Dunlop will provide competitors at the ANAC with access to a wide variety of arenacross and supercross-specific tires from its Geomax line. Based out of Dunlop’s state-of-the-art support rig, two full-time technicians will be on hand to assist riders with the same support that top Monster Energy Supercross racers like reigning champion Ryan Villopoto and rookie standout Justin Barcia receive.
“The same staff that provides service at all the Monster Energy Supercross races will also be on hand at the AMSOIL AMA Amateur National Arenacross Championships,” said Brian Fleck, Manager – Off Road Technical, Dunlop Motorcycle Tires. “Our technicians will provide professional fitting service for the riders as well as suggestions for tire sizes, patterns, and air pressures to ensure that each competitor gets the best performance possible from his or her Dunlop tires as they attempt to win a national title.”
“Having Dunlop back to provide the same trackside support that the pros receive for this year’s AMSOIL AMA Amateur National Arenacross Championships really elevates the prestige of this world-class amateur race,” said Mike Muye, Director of Arenacross, Feld Motor Sports. “Dunlop is committed to support every level of racing and this will be a special opportunity for all of our riders to get unmatched service while they compete.”
As an added bonus for the riders in search of a national title at the ANAC, Dunlop will provide each winner across a total of 27 classes of competition with the tire of his or her choice.
For decades, Dunlop tires have set the standard in off-road racing, with more than 120 national championships in the dirt. That includes every Monster Energy AMA Supercross, an FIM World Championship, title since the 2010 season. The Geomax series of tires is the product of all that success, and it is those same Geomax tires that have carried the world’s top riders to victory that are also available to off-road enthusiasts everywhere. When Dunlop develops championship-winning tires for pro racers that same expertise goes into the tires supplied to weekend riders as well.
Throughout the 2013 AMSOIL Arenacross, featuring Ricky Carmichael’s Road to Supercross, hundreds of riders of all ages and skill levels have been competing for a chance to win an AMA National Championship at the ANAC. Over the course of the 10 weekends that composed the AMSOIL Arenacross season, amateur riders have qualified from one of five different regions – North, South, East, West, and Central – during the popular Amateur Days that took place every Sunday following professional AMSOIL Arenacross action. In total, 540 of the world’s fastest amateur competitors will converge in Las Vegas, where a total of 26 riders will ultimately emerge as an AMA National Champion.
