Daytona Beach, FL (February 8, 2018) – Arai Helmet Americas, a leader in motorcycle helmet technology and a company where “experience makes the difference,” is proud to partner with Western Florida-based to support American Flat Track’s AFT Singles class.

The program will solicit applications and choose 10 qualified AFT Singles riders to receive $250 from along with a custom original-series designed Arai Corsair X Helmet. These riders will also qualify for Arai’s contingency program, which pays $300 to win, $200 for second, and $100 for third at each AFT Singles race.

The collaboration was pieced together by James “the Rocket” Rispoli, who recently signed with Arai Helmet Americas. The former 2-time AMA Supersport champion, runner-up AMA Pro Singles rider, and AMA Land Speed record holder is currently racing in the British Superbike Series and has just returned from Valentino Rossi’s flat track ranch as one of two Americans invited to race Vale’s prestigious, 100-kilometer event.

“I am really excited to partner with Arai,” Rispoli says. “It’s full circle for me, as Arai was the first helmet I ever wore. I am also truly grateful to be able to give back to the American Flat Track community with 10 Corsair X helmets. Flat track racing has given me so much in my life, so it was an easy decision to get involved. I can’t wait to see all the Arai- and MyDigitalListing-painted helmets at Daytona. I’m really excited!”

Brian Weston, Managing Director, Arai Helmet Inc., had this to say: “It gives Arai Americas great pleasure to partner with James. He is an accomplished rider, businessman and personality, and someone that believes strongly in our product. James created this opportunity and brought his personal sponsor, and we are excited to get the program up and running for the first event in Daytona.”
