AKRON, Ohio – The Ramspur Winery Calistoga Half-Mile has named Triumph Motorcycles as the presenting sponsor of the penultimate round of the 2015 AMA Pro Flat Track Season held in Calistoga, Calif., on Sept. 26, 2015.
“We are thrilled as well as honored to have an OEM with a Flat Track history as iconic as Triumph Motorcycles come on board as a presenting sponsor. Their involvement to this sport in years past helped to elevate Flat Track racing into an era of household names,” said event co-promoter and California native Terry Otton. “Recently, we have seen Triumph make a renewed commitment to the sport by supporting two AMA Pro GNC1 teams and now wish to continue their support and commitment at the race and fan level. To see an OEM step up and sponsor a race event is something I can’t say I remember ever happening in the past.”
The Ramspur Winery Calistoga Half-Mile promoters have worked hard to make major improvements to this year’s event. Collectively, the promoters have adapted a travel fund to help teams with some of their travel expenses. A popular addition from last year – “Rider’s Parade” – will be back. This brings the AMA Pro riders and their race bikes down the main streets of Calistoga for fans and residents to experience the sights, thunderous sounds and smells of high octane. It will happen again this year on race day morning, Saturday, Sept. 26.
“Triumph is honored to join on as the presenting sponsor for the Ramspur Winery Calistoga Half-Mile,” said Matt Sheahan, COO of Triumph Motorcycles America. “Calistoga in the heart of Wine Country, is building into one of the premier stops on the AMA Pro Flat Track schedule. We’re looking forward to having our dealers and customers join us at this GNC1 Twins season finale celebration.”
