Progressive AFT and KICKER Performance Audio Announce Multi-Year Partnership Renewal
DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (January 18, 2023) – Progressive American Flat Track is thrilled to announce a multi-year renewal with KICKER Performance Audio to continue as both the presenting sponsor of the Parts Unlimited AFT Singles presented by KICKER class as well as the Official Performance Audio of Progressive AFT.
Known for “Livin’ Loud” attitude, KICKER sets the standard across powersports, auto, marine, home, and personal audio, boasting an extensive line of amplifiers, loudspeakers, subwoofers, Bluetooth® speaker systems, high-performance headphones, and noise-isolating in-ear headsets.
Founded nearly a half-century ago as a two-man operation run out of a one-car garage, Stillwater, Oklahoma-based KICKER has since developed into a global power that designs and ships its high-performance audio products from its 280,000-square-foot facility.
“All of us at KICKER Performance Audio are pumped that we’re continuing our support of AFT in ’23!,” said Roger Demaree, Director of Marketing/Events/Partnerships/Multi-Media/Install of KICKER. “This sport is a perfect example of “Livin’ Loud” with its combination of speed, intensity and passion of the riders and crowd.”
KICKER products will once again be awarded to the podium finishers at each Progressive AFT event, and the 2023 Parts Unlimited AFT Singles presented by KICKER champion will be awarded a full custom installation of new KICKER high-performance products in a vehicle of their choice.
Progressive AFT fans will directly benefit from the renewed partnership as well. KICKER is set to expand its custom PA presence at the racetrack, adding a second custom mobile sound system to ensure a spectacular aural experience across the Mission Paddock Hospitality, Victory Lane, and the Progressive AFT Marketplace. The Marketplace is also where fans will be able to purchase KICKER products themselves.
“KICKER’s products set the benchmark in performance and quality,” said Gene Crouch, COO of AMA Pro Racing. “Their Noise-Canceling Headphones and Earbuds have been a gamechanger for our operations team, and the installation of their custom PA systems have been just as transformative for the fan experience. KICKER’s participation and support has truly made the sport better for the competitors, spectators, and series’ staff alike.”
KICKER will be on site to demonstrate its products at multiple rounds in 2023, buoyed by increased participation from its extensive dealer network.
