RANCHO CUCAMONGA, Calif.—Sumitomo Rubber North America Inc.'s Falken and Dunlop brands will be sponsors of the 2022 Monster Energy AMA Supercross series, which plans to stage 17 stadium and infield racetrack events this year.
The two sister brands will be active as sponsors at nine of the series' 17 events this year, SRNA said, in an effort to build awareness and exposure within this popular race program and to highlight their respective four-wheel and two-wheel product lines.
The new season begins Jan. 8 at Angel Stadium in Anaheim, Calif.
"Supercross continues to serve as a way to promote our Wildpeak line of tires to this amazing audience, who, obviously, drives a lot of trucks," said Jonathon Bradford, senior manager of motorsports and events for Falken.
"Falken and our sister brand, Dunlop Motorcycle Tires, have been involved with racing programs for many years," he added. "We know they are strong showcases for high performance and the people who attend are incredibly brand loyal."
