Suzuki announces 2010 race contingency

American Suzuki takes great pride in its longstanding support of motocross racers. That support continues in the 2010 racing season with more than $2.2 million in posted contingency. These funds will be available at 300 events across the country – more than any other manufacturer.

Suzuki will pay the owner of any 2008, 2009 or 2010 RM85, RM-Z250 or RM-Z450 purchased new from a dealership for top 5 finishes at every contingency event, and the top 10 at any of the seven major amateur national events. Those important events include the Lake Whitney Spring National, the GNC International Finals, the NMA World Mini Grand Prix, the Mammoth Mountain MX, the NMA Grand National Championships, the Unlimited Sports Winter Olympics and the AMA Amateur National Championships.

In addition to this generous monetary support, Suzuki will also be providing free trackside assistance at the seven amateur nationals as well as other selected events.

"American Suzuki continues to support motocross enthusiasts like no other manufacturer. Every dollar invested in the Motocross Contingency Program is going to the core of our sport – every local and regional racer who attends their weekly event in pursuit of victory. With the addition of the all-new, fuel-injected RM-Z250 and our race-proven RM-Z450, Suzuki racers across America will have a head start on the competition," stated Brian Noah, Suzuki Motocross Support Specialist.
