E3 Spark Plugs Announces Two Year Sponsorship of American Flat Track Racing - Named Official Spark Plug
Ponte Vedra, FL, (February 15, 2018)…E3 Spark Plugs announces a renewed partnership with American Flat Track Racing for 2018 and 2019. As the series’ official spark plug for a second year in a row, E3 is very proud to be a sponsor of the world’s most prestigious form of dirt track motorcycle racing.
E3 Vice President of Motorsports & Marketing, Rob Fisher, says, “American Flat Track racing is always exciting to watch whether it’s new talent competing in AFT Singles short track, TT or half mile courses, or American Flat Track Twins racing globally in the professional ranks at 90+ HP. For enthusiasts like myself, this partnership allows us to work directly with racers that can test throttle response and durability under the most intense race conditions.”
In addition to the company’s partnership of American Flat Track Racing, E3 recently renewed its sponsorship program with Richie Morris Racing (RMR) for 2018. RMR operates a two rider program with Shayna Texter, riding in Singles and fresh off a win at Rolling Wheels, and GNC1 Rookie of the Year, Jarod Vanderkooi, who recently moved to flat track from road racing and is riding twins.
E3 Spark Plugs feature advanced DiamondFIRE electrode technology recognized for its immediate throttle response and consistent spark to achieve maximum horsepower.
