Parts Unlimited and Kicker Audio Step Up to Support AFT Singles
There having been no sponsor for the AFT Singles Class in 2021, Parts Unlimited and Kicker Performance Audio have stepped up for 2022 - named as the Title and Presenting Sponsors of the AFT Singles Class. The class will now be known as the Parts Unlimited AFT Singles presented by Kicker.
Parts Unlimited has signed a multi-year partnership as title sponsor, living up to its time-honored pledge of "We Support the Sport." The Wisconsin-based company's direct partnership ties to AFT date back to 2018, and, alongside its sister brand Drag Specialties, it continues to serve as the series' Official Wholesaler.
As part of the expanded partnership, Parts Unlimited has committed $30,000 in championship bonuses to be paid out to the top three AFT Singles riders at the end of the season - $15,000 to the '22 class champion, $10,000 to the runner-up, and $5,000 to the third-ranked rider.
"Parts Unlimited is really excited to continue the relationship with Progressive AFT with this new multi-year deal," said Hylton Beattie, Global Motorsports Director of Parts Unlimited.
"We are delighted to be the AFT Singles Class Title Sponsor. The Singles class consistently delivers close, exciting racing from a mixture of experienced and talented young riders that in 2021 saw twelve different riders on the podium. We will continue to "We Support the Sport" with the Parts Unlimited AFT Singles presented by Kicker events, encompassing broad factory support, professional privateer teams and raw talent, all the ingredients to produce some legendary racing."
Presenting sponsor Kicker Performance Audio has established a "Living Loud Legacy" by producing high-performance audio products, ranging from powersports, auto, marine, home and personal audio since 1973. After getting its first taste as a Progressive AFT sponsor in 2021, the Stillwater, Oklahoma-based brand will also step up its official support in 2022.
