Progressive AFT and SBS Friction A/S Announce Multi-Year Partnership Renewal
DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (Mar 9, 2023) – Progressive American Flat Track announced today that SBS Friction A/S will continue as the Official Brake Pad of Progressive AFT through the 2024 season.
SBS Friction A/S also better known as just SBS, is a dominant force in global motorsports, reeling in dozens of world titles in the decades since its founding in Denmark back in 1964. After earlier proving its capabilities in battlegrounds such as the Superbike World Championship and World Motocross Championship, SBS focused its attention on the world’s preeminent two-wheeled dirt track racing championship, joining as an official partner in 2018.
“Our commitment to supporting the sport and Progressive American Flat Track is both historically long-term and significant, as racing is part of our DNA at SBS. Our racing compounds – especially the DC with its smooth initial bite and high temperature stability - are often the preferred choice among teams and riders in American Flat Track. We use the feedback we get to perfect our brake products. We look forward to yet another 2 years as the official brake sponsor in the race series. Go ahead for a great season,” said SBS Race Manager, Allan Østli.
As a global market leader and a preferred supplier of brake products, SBS is legendary for its vast research and development capabilities. The first company to produce aftermarket disc brakes, SBS routinely pioneers the usage of bleeding-edge materials and technologies, not only in racing but also for the consumer aftermarket.
“SBS certainly has an impressive racing pedigree, and they’ve brought the same commitment required for that level of success to their Progressive AFT efforts,” said Gene Crouch, CEO of AMA Pro Racing. “We’re pleased to further our relationship and appreciate their steadfast support of the series.”
