Progressive AFT and Thom Duma Fine Jewelers team up for ninth consecutive season
Progressive American Flat Track is pleased to announce that Jeweler Thom Duma (TDFJ) will remain Official Progressive AFT Jeweler for a ninth consecutive season.
Once again in 2022, Tom Duma and his team of world-class jewelers will handcraft bespoke championship rings commemorating the achievements of class champions in the Mission SuperTwins presented by S&S Cycle, Mission Production Twins presented by Vance & Hinesand Parts Unlimited AFT Singles presented by KICKER. This unique honor will again follow the new standard set a year ago in which each solid gold masterpiece will feature the champion’s name and image along with the traditional number 1 and diamond range.
“Tom Duma and TDFJ have been enthusiastic supporters of the sport for many years,” said Gene Crouch, COO of Progressive American Flat Track. “The Championship Rings are incredible works of art, which simply could not be designed and created with this level of passion and expertise without Duma’s deep love for the sport.”
Thom Duma Fine Jewelers traces its historic history back to the 1800s. This history became intrinsically linked to the original American extreme sport when Tom Duma Jr. embarked on a professional career on the flat track from 1976 to 1981. Duma then linked his two passions with the creation of the “Racer Series” line of motorsport inspired jewelry, including steel shoe pendants, motorcycle tire pandora style beads, checkered flag racing jewelry, number pendants racing, and more.
“It is an honor to continue the tradition of designing and manufacturing championship rings for all Progressive AFT classes once again,” said Duma. “I look forward to the new tradition of presenting class champions with their rings next year at the first race of the 2023 season!”
