Fort Worth, Texas (May 25, 2014) – The American Sportbike Racing Association is pleased to announce it has reached an agreement with Pirelli Tire to be the presenting sponsor for the AMA sanctioned ASRA Sprint Series.

By using qualifying to set the grid order, the AMA sanctioned ASRA Sprint Series emulates the top professional motorcycle road racing series across the globe, making ASRA a natural stepping stone to those other programs.

“It is really great to be working with Pirelli again,” says Kevin Elliott President of ASRA Racing. “They have supported motorcycle road racing from the grass roots level all the way to the FIM World Championships and we are proud to be a part of their sponsored family.”

“Pirelli North America has always understood the importance of the regional and national racing series like the ASRA/CCS to beginning and accomplished racers alike. We are proud to offer one of the widest ranges of racing tires in the market, and these include the same tires used in the eni World Superbike and World Supersport series. Our statement is clear and concise “we race what we sell and sell what we race” so all riders can get the same benefits of the world’s best Superbike and Supersport tires,” stated Jeff Johnston, Pirelli’s North American Moto Roadrace manager.
