Harley-Davidson: XR1200 Race Contingency

Motorcycle Racing

Harley-Davidson Motor Company has announced a $25,000 contingency fund in support of the AMA Pro Road Racing Vance & Hines XR1200 Series, beginning with the debut round of the series at Road America in Elkhart Lake, WI, June 3-5.

The motorcycle racing contingency program will pay out $5,000 to the top ten finishers in each of the series’ five rounds, with each race winner earning $1,250.

Second place finishers will receive $1,000, followed by $750 for third, and $500 for fourth. Fifth through tenth place finishers will each receive $250.

"We’re excited to support this grassroots racing class with a contingency program that rewards racers deep into the field," said Steve Piehl, Harley-Davidson’s Director of Customer Experience.

"Our contingency fund doubles the generous purse previously announced by Vance & Hines and the AMA and should provide an extra incentive to racers considering competing in the series."

The Vance & Hines XR1200 Series features Harley-Davidson XR1200 motorcycles specially modified with racing kit parts supplied exclusively through Vance & Hines.
