Vance & Hines has been named the presenting sponsor of the American Flat Track (AFT) SuperTwins class, the premier racing class in America’s hottest form of powersports racing. The sponsorship will showcase the Vance & Hines name prominently in 20 race venues across the country and on each race broadcast on NBCSN.
In addition to the AFT SuperTwins sponsorship, the company will continue to provide end-to-end support for Harley-Davidson’s three riders in the series. Team members include former Champion Bryan Smith, Jarod Vanderkooi and Dalton Gauthier, who will ride Vance & Hines-tuned Harley-Davidson XG750R motorcycles.
“It’s natural for us to dive deeply into this series. Vance & Hines was built on making motorcycles go fast. Our partners at Harley-Davidson, our customers and our employees know how passionate we are about racing,” said Terry Vance, the Hall of Fame drag racer who founded the company with his tuner/partner Byron Hines in 1979.
Vance & Hines President Mike Kennedy, who during his tenure at Harley-Davidson launched the company’s highly successful efforts in NHRA Pro Stock motorcycle drag racing, feels just as engaged. “Our AFT sponsorship program places our brand prominently in front of our fans and running the Harley-Davidson racing program puts us right there on the track. This is who we are,” said Kennedy. “We make great performance products, and we do that because our racing DNA guides our product development and our production. No other company in the industry is as engaged in racing performance as Vance & Hines, and we’re really proud of that.”
Starting with the season’s first race in Daytona Beach next month, AFT will rename their premier class the AFT SuperTwins presented by Vance & Hines. The series hits major markets coast-to-coast with the finale at the Meadowlands in New Jersey.
