20 April 2000
SUPERTRAPP RETURNS TO BACK AMA SUPERTRACKER SERIES PICKERINGTON, Ohio -- Aftermarket performance exhaust manufacturer SuperTrapp will return as title sponsor for the 2000 AMA SuperTrapp SuperTracker Flat Track Series, AMA Pro Racing has announced. "SuperTrapp is pleased to sponsor the AMA SuperTrapp SuperTrackers Series for its second year," said Larry Trevathan, General Manager at SuperTrapp. "Based on the success of last year's inaugural season, we believe the series proved to be an exciting addition to the sport of dirt-track racing." The 2000 season marks the second of a three-year program of testing and development for the SuperTrapp SuperTracker series, which runs at select events of the 2000 AMA Progressive Insurance U.S. Flat Track Championships and AMA National Hot Shoe Championships. Supertracker rules and equipment standards were created with the guidance of race-team owners, and designed to encourage the participation of a wide range of motorcycle manufacturers. Last season's entries included bikes powered by Suzuki, Honda, Ducati, Yamaha and Harley-Davidson motors. "The new bikes have injected a fresh look to the Grand National circuit, and should open up dirt-track racing to a larger audience of motorcyclists and race fans," said Trevathan. "We also want to congratulate 1999 SuperTrapp SuperTracker Series Champion, Joe Kopp, his team, and Suzuki, as well as the other riders and teams that contributed to making the inaugural season a success." SuperTrapp supports SuperTracker racers by contributing $14,000 to the series purse. When combined with race organizer contributions, a total of $63,000 is up for grabs over the course of the 2000 SuperTrapp SuperTracker season. SuperTrapp also promotes the sport through advertising and promotional efforts.
