News: 2022 Support From Dunlop for Rookies of '79

The Rookies of '79 is proud to announce that the organization has once again received support from Dunlop Motorcycle Tires.

Dunlop has been a consistent supporter of the Rookies of '79 charity since the creation of the charity. Our success as the Designated Charity of American Flat Track is possible due to the support of fine companies that share with us the goal of safety, on road and off-road.

"It is such an honor to welcome support from Dunlop again for 2022", said Executive Director Charlie Roberts. "We will have certificates provided by Scott Dewey, National Sales Director of Dunlop Motorcycle Tires, available that will be raffled off throughout 2022 that will allow the winners to receive complimentary Dunlop tires." 

A majority of the fundraising done by Rookies of '79 staff and volunteers is through auctions and collectible merchandise sales at Progressive American Flat Track events. It is at these events, plus select regional flat track events, where funds are raised to help our fellow injured riders and families in their times of need.

Attendees at American Flat Track and regional events will have direct access to the thousands of collectibles sold through the Rookies tent which will again include the Dunlop tire certificate raffles and a variety of Dunlop branded merchandise. All proceeds from event sales to into the Rookies' general assistance (for injured riders) fund.

From the founders, volunteers and board of Rookies of '79, thank you for to Dunlop and all of the loyal flat track fans for your ongoing support of our mission.
