Vance & Hines to continue support of Flat Track racing
American Flat Track has announced a renewed, multi-year partnership with Vance & Hines as the Presenting Sponsor of the premier AFT Twins class. Beginning with the 2017 season, the class, which headlines the re-envisioned series and continues the legacy of the Grand National Championship, will now be known as AFT Twins presented by Vance & Hines.
“Vance & Hines’ involvement in American Flat Track racing has been tremendous,” said Michael Lock, CEO of American Flat Track. “Their continued support and willingness to help grow this high-intensity sport is greatly appreciated and we look forward to having them return for another season.”
A company born from racing, Vance & Hines grew to be a leader in aftermarket motorcycle parts, from its distinctive V-twin exhaust systems to a wide range of products across the powersports world. The American manufacturer has been involved in a variety of motorcycle racing disciplines, NHRA Pro Stock Motorcycle, AMA Superbikes, and more recently professional Flat Track racing. In 2014, Vance & Hines became the Presenting Sponsor for the former GNC1 class – now AFT Twins. The company was eager to offer their support of the new, golden era of American Flat Track and is excited to be a part of the sport’s expansion.
“There’s never been a better time to be involved in Flat Track racing,” said Terry Vance, Chairman of Vance & Hines. “The sport is growing rapidly, and more and more you see the youth in America buying all brands of 750cc twin-cylinder motorcycles. At Vance & Hines, we want to be out in front of that movement and, in my opinion, there’s no better place to do that than American Flat Track. We’re proud to return for the third year as the Presenting Sponsor of AFT’s premier class.”
