AMA Pro Racing officials announced today that they have expanded the purse available in the premier AMA Pro National Guard American SuperBike series events beginning at this weekend’s Suzuki SuperBike Challenge at Road Atlanta and continuing through the remainder of the 2010 season, which concludes in September at Barber Motorsports Park.
The expanded prize money payouts in AMA Pro American SuperBike now extend all the way down to 20th place, which is an addition of five additional positions over the previous prize money structure.
"The total weekend AMA Pro Racing prize money available in all three classes is $67,500.00 and the added purse money in AMA Pro National Guard American SuperBike should help our loyal teams and riders," said AMA Pro Racing COO, David Atlas.
This latest purse structure now has AMA Pro National Guard American SuperBike and AMA Pro Daytona SportBike presented by AMSOIL series both paying down to 20th position. Each race pays $2500.00 to win, $1,500.00 for second, $1,000.00 for third, $750.00 for fourth through tenth and $500.00 for 11th through 20th places. This is for each of the standard two races per weekend format per class so a double win is worth $5000.00. The Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca event will only feature single races in each class.
All three AMA Pro Road Racing classes will be racing at Road Atlanta this weekend, visit www.roadatlanta.com for schedule and ticket information.
