AMA Announces Event Insurance Program for Chartered Clubs and Promoters

PICKERINGTON, OH – December 6, 2012 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – The American Motorcyclist Association is pleased to announce a new preferred insurance provider and an improved insurance program for all AMA-sanctioned events.

The program features industry-leading event liability coverage options at great rates for AMA-chartered clubs and promoters. 

The program, which takes effect Dec. 31, 2012 and applies to all 2013 AMA-sanctioned events, results from a new preferred provider partnership with motorsports insurance veteran K&K Insurance. “K&K Insurance is a longtime provider of motorsports liability insurance and a loyal supporter of AMA events,” said AMA Vice President of Operations Jeff Massey. “Our members and our organizers expect and deserve the best and we’re excited about this opportunity to work with such an experienced provider to deliver on all counts in 2013.”

K&K Insurance also will be the general liability insurance provider for the AMA.

”We are pleased to extend our relationship with such a valued and professional partner,” said AMA Vice President of Administration Bob Chaddock. “General liability coverage is an important aspect of any business, and it is critical to have a reliable and trustworthy general liability provider such as K&K Insurance.”

AMA continues to provide a high-quality base insurance coverage program — at great rates — that meets all AMA-sanctioned event requirements. New for 2013, an optional coverage plan has been added for those who may need a higher level of coverage beyond the base AMA program. In addition, camping, setup and teardown coverages are now included at no additional cost, and the rate for event practice coverage has been cut in half.

“K&K Insurance is excited about expanding our relationship with the American Motorcyclist Association in 2013 and beyond,” said Paul Underwood, senior vice president of Motorsports at K&K. “Our relationship has been a longstanding one and we are pleased to be the preferred insurance provider for AMA clubs and promoters. The AMA is well known as the premier motorcycle event sanctioning organization, and K&K is proud to partner with them as we focus our combined energies to serving our clients.”

K&K Insurance is recognized as a leading provider of sports, leisure and entertainment insurance products for 60 years. The company, headquartered in Fort Wayne, Ind., is one of the largest managing general underwriters in the United States.
