Princeton Tec joins AAS for inaugural NAARS racing season


Princeton Tec has been named the exclusive headlamp and flashlight sponsor of the North American Adventure Racing Series (NAARS). NAARS is a premiere international adventure racing (AR) series which hold races all across North and Central America. The partnership between these two active companies will provide the series with headlamps for elite AR athletes as well as prizes for winning teams.

American Adventure Sports was founded in 1997 with the idea to create events and provide products that cultivate a passion for nature and activity. Since then, thousands of individuals have participated in AR events as a way to learn, grow and improve their lives through sport. American Adventure Sports first expanded its offerings in 2009 by opening a retail location in Indiana, PA to provide the tough-wearing outdoor and adventure gear needed by AR participants. The company continued to grow and moved to Greensburg, PA in 2012 where it also now houses a fully functioning in-house video production branch, supports a partnership with local universities, and operates an online store that provides top-of-the-line adventure racing and outdoor gear.

“Adventure Racers don’t call it quits once the sun goes down. There is no stopping,” said Doug Crytzer, Owner and Founder of American Adventure Sports. “This is why we’re thrilled to have such a quality sponsor with the gear that our racers trust at all hours of the day or night. They rely on light for not only their ability to keep competing, but for their safety and wellbeing.”

“PTEC and AAS have been working and growing together for a number of years. We are excited to see the AR series go national for 2013,” said George Chevalier, marketing/ communications director as Princeton Tec.

The NAARS Coalition, consisting of dozens of race directors across the continent, is dedicated to creating synergy and positivity within the AR sport and providing opportunities for athletes and sponsors. As a part of that effort, Princeton Tec will provide a range of lamps for the winners of the NAARS Prime and Prestige level events and for athletes on the NAARS endorsed AR team, TeamSOG.
American Adventure Sports is more than happy to say that Princeton Tec products have been available in its retail location for years and are annually a customer favorite.
