COSTA MESA, Calif. – Dunlop will again be the tire of choice for the MotoAmerica Series when the championship starts in April, with the high-performance tire manufacturer set for a fifth straight season as the official tire supplier.

“Our relationship with Dunlop is second to none,” said MotoAmerica President Wayne Rainey. “They’ve been with us since the start as the spec tire in all of our classes and we’re thrilled with our relationship and the technical support they have given us and continue to give us. Dunlop is quick to respond, and our needs fit perfectly with their needs. We want to continue to go faster and do it safer. The race tires that Dunlop brings to the races continue to get better every year and it shows in our lap times.”

“We take our role as the spec tire for the MotoAmerica Series very seriously,” said Dunlop Vice President Mike Buckley. “Racing in five classes gives us the opportunity to run a wide range of our tires and we use the information we get at the racetrack to help us make better tires for the consumer. Dunlop is a racing company and we’re thrilled with the progression that MotoAmerica has made and we’re looking forward to what will be the best season yet in 2019.”

The MotoAmerica Series will begin on April 5-7 at Michelin Raceway Road Atlanta in Braselton, Ga.
