PICKERINGTON, OHIO -- The American Motorcyclist Association (AMA) has announced that AMA Sports and Ryan Young Products have reached an agreement to extend the company`s title sponsorship of the AMA/NATC Ryan Young Products National Championship Observed Trials Series through the 2003 racing season.
“Last year we stepped up and took the challenge of becoming the first-ever title sponsor of the AMA/NATC National Championship Observed Trials Series,” said Ryan Young, six-time AMA National Champion and founder of Ryan Young Products. “We’re back again, not only because it was an overall success, but because we believe that supporting the sport is important to our company.”
“AMA Sports is excited to be working again with both Ryan Young Products and the NATC for the upcoming season,” said Bill Amick, Vice President of AMA Sports. “The support that Ryan and his company give the series makes a big difference, and we’re looking forward to more exposure this year.”
The 2003 AMA/NATC Ryan Young Products National Championship Observed Trials Series will open on April 25 and 26 in Pomona, California, with the finals scheduled for August 9 and 10 in Davis, California -- 13 rounds in all, 3 more than the 2002 series.
