SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH - September 13, 2018 - Vortex-EK (formerly Vortex Racing), a leading manufacturer of aftermarket racing parts for both street and dirt, announced today that it is now accepting applications for its 2018 Vortex-EK Athlete Support Team known as The VAST. This sponsorship program is open to racers of all levels from pro to novice.

VAST members must reapply each year no matter their status. All applications are considered because Vortex-EK wants to make motorcycle racing accessible to all levels of racers no matter their budget. Translation: You don't have to be Cam Beaubier or Cooper Webb to get a little love from Vortex-EK.

A New Twist

Beginning in 2018, VAST members will be on one of three levels: A, B or C.  A-Level being the most experienced and C-Level being novices. Each level will have sub-levels of sponsorship tailored to each rider to result in clear and consistent support that all members of The VAST will appreciate.

EK Chain

With Vortex Racing becoming the North American agent for EK Chain, thus becoming Vortex-EK, EK Chain will be available to all members of The VAST as part of the sponsored or discounted product offering.
