Carlsbad, CA - After four years as the official race tire of Chad Reed and TwoTwo Motorsports, the team and Dunlop have agreed to mutually end their partnership to allow TwoTwo to expand their relationship with their title sponsor.
“I am very thankful for the support Dunlop has shown TwoTwo Motorsports and myself since 2010,” said Reed. “Over the past four years, I have had the privilege to watch Dunlop develop cutting-edge products for my team and the industry. As an independent team owner I am forced to make hard decisions. I would sincerely like to extend my gratitude to the entire Dunlop team and wish them nothing but success moving forward. We are excited for the future of TwoTwo Motorsports and the impact we continue to make on the industry.”
“Dunlop always encourages the expansion of our sport, especially in the case of a sponsor from outside the motorcycle industry who has the ability to put motorcycle racing in front of a larger audience,” said Mike Buckley, senior vice president of sales, marketing and R&D. “Chad is a great competitor, and we wish him well for the 2014 season.”
