Daytona Beach, Fla. (January 5, 2011) - Officials from AMA Pro Road Racing and the Army National Guard announced today the continuation of the Army National Guard's sponsorship of AMA Pro Road Racing's premier National Guard SuperBike class.

This will be the Army National Guard's third consecutive year of involvement with AMA Pro Road Racing as the primary sponsor of the elite SuperBike class.
"We are very proud of our association with the Army National Guard," said AMA Pro Chief Operating Officer David Atlas. "To help support the important recruiting efforts of the Army National Guard is something we take very seriously. The overall support of the many men and women serving our country at home and abroad makes all of us at AMA Pro very proud to be associated with the greatest military institution in the world."
