Pirelli Steps Up Support For Privateers

For immediate release: May 16, 2006

To help privateer racers with expenses, Pirelli is offering a unique tire trade-in program for privateer racers competing in the 2006 AMA Outdoor Nationals. Any AMA Pro licensed rider may trade in any used set of competitor’s tires for a brand new set of Pirelli MX tires mounted by Active 8 Racing, for the nominal fee of just $50.00.

This program is limited to two sets of tires per rider. Additionally, Pirelli is paying cash contingency for riders placing inside the top 20.

Pirelli will be providing trackside support for privateers at all outdoor nationals through Active 8 Racing. Just bring 50 bucks and your shagged set to Active 8 Racing, and leave with Pirelli’s best new rubber on your rims.
