PICKERINGTON, Ohio (June 13, 2003) -- Dunlop Tire Corporation will be the title sponsor of the AMA Red Bull Supermoto Championship event at Mazda Raceway in Laguna Seca. The event, to be held in conjunction with the July 10-13, AMA Chevy Trucks U.S. Superbike Championship presented by Parts Unlimited, will be entitled the Dunlop Supermoto Classic.

Mike Buckley, Dunlop Vice President, Motorcycle, is enthusiastic about his company's involvement with the emerging championship. "The AMA Red Bull Supermoto Championship promises to be huge and Dunlop looks forward to being part of the series, said Buckley. "From a business standpoint, it makes perfect sense for us to be involved, both as a supplier of product as well as by sponsoring the inaugural event."

Andy Leisner, AMA Pro Racing Vice President, echoed that sentiment and stated, "We're pleased to have Dunlop aboard as title sponsor for our opening event. The Laguna Seca round is already shaping up to be a history-making event and Dunlop will receive good value for its sponsorship investment. Top riders from virtually all motorcycle racing disciplines have committed to racing this event and it is bound to garner a tremendous amount of exposure for Dunlop."

The AMA Red Bull Supermoto Championship kicks off July 11. The six-race series will conclude in Las Vegas on November 21, 2003. The championship finale will be held in conjunction with the annual AMA Pro racing Awards Banquet. For more information about the AMA Red Bull Supermoto Championship, visit www.amaproracing.com.
