Dunlop Announces new DT3 flat-track tire

Buffalo NY: Now in its second season as the Official Tire of AMA Pro Flat Track, Dunlop introduces the all-new DT3 flat-track tire available for professional and amateur racers alike. The Dunlop DT3 replaces the Goodyear Eagle DT II flat track tire.

In 2014, Dunlop began transferring production of the Goodyear flat track products from Akron, OH to Dunlop’s manufacturing plant in Buffalo, NY. The tire was renamed along the way, and delivers the same performance levels as the Goodyear tire. Testing throughout the 2014 season by top AMA Pro riders such as Jake Johnson, Brad Baker, JD Beach, Bryan Smith, Hayden Gillim and Kenny Coolbeth proved the performance of the DT3.

To support the new DT3, Dunlop will provide sales and service at all the 2015 AMA Pro Flat Track nationals, saving riders the hassle and expense of hauling their own tires throughout the year. Dunlop engineering staff will also attend select races during the 2015 season.

“Dunlop believes in motorcycle racing, and we support the sport whenever and wherever we can,” said Mike Buckley, Dunlop Vice President of Sales, Marketing, Research and Development. “We are excited to bring this tire to market, and to provide trackside sales and service to the AMA Pro Flat Track paddock.”

The Dunlop DT3 is available immediately from Race Tire Services, http://dunlopracing.com, (800) 772-8473. The AMA Pro paddock will transition from the Goodyear Eagle DT II to the Dunlop DT3 in the early part of the season.
