We understand the passion and dedication that goes into both riding and racing, and we are proud to support Triumph's PHR Performance Team as they take on the challenges of the Daytona 200.

By supporting events like the Daytona 200, the company aims to contribute to the overall development of the motorcycle community and celebrate the thrill of motorcycle racing.

The Daytona 200 isn't the only race that has FreedomRoad Financial and Triumph teamed up. FreedomRoad is just as excited to sponsor the Triumph Racing team in the Pro Motocross season in 2024. Triumph's all new motocross motorcycle, the Triumph TF 250-X, will be raced by Joey Savatgy, Jalek Swoll and Evan Ferry. This racing season started in January and goes through August, promising some amazing races and historic rides across the nation. From California to New York and cities in between, the Triumph Motocross Team will be racing Triumph's new entry into the dirt bike racing circuit with a fury.

"This year is a great year for racing and for FreedomRoad Financial!" said Collins. "We are looking forward to a thrilling 2024 for many reasons, and our Triumph sponsorships are a big part of our excitement."
