We are very pleased to announce that our vendor tent will be at all AFT events in 2020!! This 2014 Dodge Promaster Eco Diesel will be hauling our tent and all fundraising merchandise to these and some non-AFT events as well. What we need are sponsors who would like their logo added to the design. Our goal is to have it completely wrapped with Rookies of '79 and all participating sponsor logos. Different sponsor packages are available. So far we have Estenson Racing, Indian Motorcycles, Motion Pro, Dunlop, TDFJ, Bi Rite Auto and TCX boots on board. If interested in adding your logo on a vehicle that will be traveling all over the US, please contact Charlie Roberts at 217-899-1811 or Charlie@rookies79.com.
