Daytona Beach, FL (February 3, 2017) – American Flat Track is pleased to announce a renewed partnership with McElroy Packaging and the return of the McElroy Packaging “Lucky 13” Award. The $500 award will be given to the rider who leads the 13th lap in each AFT Twins Main Event on the 2017 schedule.
“McElroy Packaging is a great American family-run business, whose team have a passion for Pro Flat Track,” said Michael Lock, CEO of American Flat Track. “Building on their Official Partner status from 2016 and growing their commitment to include the ‘Lucky 13’ Award, we are delighted to have them support America’s fastest-growing motorcycle sport.”
The recipient of the McElroy Packaging “Lucky 13” Award will be announced in real time at each event and via live streaming on FansChoice.tv. The Ohio-based packaging manufacturer will also be providing American Flat Track with custom boxes for the display of marketing materials at series activations.
“If you were able to hear the conversations that take place at our company, you would hear as much about motorcycles and Flat Track racing as you would box making,” said Steve McElroy, Vice President of McElroy Packaging. “Contributing to the sport and partnering with AFT is something that all of us at McElroy Packaging are very proud of.”
