DAYTONA BEACH, FL – February 24, 2016 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – As the 2016 AMA Pro Flat Track season grows closer, the stakes grow larger. Stepping up from a contingency sponsor to an official series partner, McElroy Packaging has teamed up with AMA Pro Racing to create a new bonus award for the sport. As part of the McElroy Packaging “Lucky 13″ award, the rider leading at the completion of the 13th lap in each of the season’s Harley-Davidson GNC1 presented by Vance & Hines main events will receive a $1,000 bonus.
“McElroy Packaging has been a long-time supporter of the sport and we appreciate their expanded partnership,” said Michael Lock, CEO of AMA Pro Racing. “The ‘Lucky 13’ award is a creative way to give back to the riders, and will add yet another element to the excitement on the racetrack.”
The winner of each McElroy Packaging “Lucky 13” award will be announced at the event and on the live streaming broadcasts, exposing the company to the brand-loyal AMA Pro Flat Track fans in the grandstands and watching online via FansChoice.tv.
“We’re eager to enhance our partnership by upgrading from a contingency sponsor last year to an Official Partner this year, and adding the ‘Lucky 13’ award,” said Steve McElroy, Vice President of McElroy Packaging. “It’s great knowing that our award puts an extra grand in someone’s pocket each race and that it really is up for grabs to any GNC1 competitor. We also believe that by being involved with AMA Pro Flat Track, and the sport as a whole, it will benefit our company and all of the athletes in the long-run.”
