AMA: Supertrapp returns to back AMA Supertracker Series

20 April 2000


     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.
