Graves Motorsports’ $5,000 WERA Contingency

To celebrate its 20th anniversary, Graves Motorsports is supporting the sport like never before with a new contingency program for grass roots racers in the WERA National Endurance Series.

Graves is offering $5000 for first place at each of the eight WERA National Endurance events in the Mediumweight Superbike class. To assist racers and teams during the series, Graves will have parts and technical support staff on hand at each round.

"We race what we sell and we sell what we race, bridging the gap between the haves and the have nots" says company president Chuck Graves. "This was Graves Motorsports’ original mission statement. Now, 20 years later, we’re still at it–improving our products and boosting our support of motorcycle roadracing around the country."

Competitors can apply for eligibility by signing up for a WORKS-level Graves Motorsports account and by requesting full details from WORKS and YEC parts specialist Weston Gleave by emailing
