Winners of Each of AFT’s Classes to Receive One-of-a-Kind, Handcrafted Piece
DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (April 9, 2019) – Thom Duma Fine Jewelers (TDFJ) – the Official Jeweler of American Flat Track – unveiled today the championship rings to be presented to the each of the first-place finishers for the 2019 American Flat Track season.
The rings are designed by Tom Duma himself in collaboration with his twin sons Cody and Cory. Duma takes pride in designing unique rings each year to honor the achievements of American Flat Track champions. These custom-designed rings are then handcrafted by a team of world-class jewelers who characterize TDFJ’s reputation of quality in its industry.
The winner of the Roof Systems AFT Singles presented by Russ Brown Motorcycle Attorneys class will receive a 14-karat white gold ring, containing nearly two ounces of white gold, that is accented by 1.5 carats of diamonds.
The 2019 AFT Production Twins champion will receive a one-of-a-kind 14-karat white gold ring, containing nearly two ounces of white gold, containing 1.75 carats of diamonds.
For the AFT Twins presented by Vance & Hines athlete at the top of 2019 standings comes a ring featuring a 14-karate white gold ring crafted to resemble twin exhaust pipes supporting an 18-karat yellow gold number plate. This ring, containing over two ounces of gold, houses two full carats of diamonds.
“Tom and the professionals at Thom Duma Fine Jewelers have always provided our champions with stunning pieces of art,” said Michael Lock, CEO of American Flat Track. “The team has surpassed all expectations for this year. These rings are befitting of the lifetime achievement of winning an AFT Championship.”
“It took six weeks of design time to create these rings,” said Tom Duma, owner of TDFJ. “The labor to manufacture them was intense, but then again, look at the all the effort the teams have put into stepping up their machinery this season – I figured the championship rings should be no less a work of art and that they should resemble a Super Bowl ring. After all, the AFT series and championship is the Super Bowl of motorcycle racing.”
