Longtime AFT partner Vance & Hines has agreed to a sizable and significant two-year sponsorship renewal with American Flat Track for the 2018 and 2019 seasons.
The deal makes Vance & Hines once again the Presenting Sponsor of the AFT Twins class for 2018 and 2019. It also names Vance & Hines the Official Exhaust Partner and Official Performance Partner of American Flat Track for those two years.
“There’s never been a better time to be involved in Flat Track racing,” said Terry Vance, chairman of Vance & Hines. “The sport continues to grow and the youth today are buying 750cc twin cylinder motorcycles….and that’s right where Vance & Hines wants to be. This is the best two-wheel racing in the country, and we’re proud to return as the Presenting Sponsor of the AFT Twins class for two more years.”
Vance & Hines has certainly been around the block when it comes to motorcycle racing. While amassing numerous drag racing championships together, Vance and longtime partner Byron Hines — both AMA Motorcycle Hall of Famers — built V&H into a leading aftermarket company, and then immersed themselves successfully in other forms of motorcycle racing, including AMA Superbike, modern-day drag racing and, more recently, professional flat track.
“Vance & Hines are a strong supporter of the AFT series,” said American Flat Track CEO Michael Lock. “We are delighted to partner with them for the next two years, on a number of fronts.”
