The partnership marks a return to the racing scene for Kuryakyn.
SOMERSET, WIS, MARCH 1 — Kuryakyn® and 2017 AFT Pro Twins Grand National Champion Jared Mees are excited to announce a new sponsorship that extends throughout the 2018 American Flat Track season.
“The thrill of flat track racing recaptured an entire industry and fan base with its recent resurgence,” said Kuryakyn Creative Marketing Director Undria Davis. “We’re incredibly proud to support Jared and his team in their pursuit of retaining the No. 1 plate. At the same time, this sponsorship combined with the rising popularity of flat track racing presents an exciting opportunity for us to reach a new enthusiast demographic that aligns extremely well with our brand’s direction going forward.”
Mees is set to defend a dominant 2017 campaign where he won 10 races en route to earning Indian® Motorcycle its first Grand National championship in over 60 years. This sponsorship agreement marks Kuryakyn’s return to racing following their support of riders competing in the NHRA Full Throttle Drag Racing Series and AMA Vance & Hines XR1200 Series in 2011.
“I’m excited to bring Kuryakyn on board with my program. They’re well known in the aftermarket motorcycle industry and have a lot to offer in regards to increasing flat track racing exposure. I couldn’t do what I do without the support of my sponsors, and I look forward to engaging a great new partnership with Kuryakyn.”
