WERA: Brian Stokes Wins Honda Cash

Motorcycle Racing

American Honda, the distributor of Honda motorcycles, scooters, ATVs and personal watercraft in the U.S., congratulates 2010 WERA National Challenge Superbike Championship winner Brian Stokes.

The superbike racer took home the $35,000.00 contingency bonus, which American Honda announced earlier in the year as part of their motorcycle-racing program.

Stokes rode his CBR1000RR motorcycle to an impressive seven of eight possible Superbike podiums in route to the WERA championship, including two wins, five second-place finishes and a fourth-place. Amassing 138 points in the championship, Stokes finished a solid 36 points ahead of his nearest WERA Superbike competitor.

Brian Stokes says: “Honda really stepped it up this year by offering such a generous contingency bonus at a time when other manufacturers weren’t offering bonuses,” said the CBR motorcycle racer.

“This was my first time racing a CBR1000RR and I was very impressed with the Honda package. Right off the bat the bike was fast and I was within nine-tenths of a second of the lap record at the first track I went to.”

“I had a great time racing the CBR1000RR and I can’t thank Honda enough for supporting the WERA National Challenge Superbike Championship.”

Keith Dowdle says: “American Honda has been supporting grassroots road racing for many years by offering a solid contingency program that pays real money and keeps riders competing week in and week out,” says the Assistant Manager of the Honda Racing Corporation of America (HRCA).

“From MD250s to CBR1000s, we’ve done our best to cover as many motorcycle riders as possible and we hope to continue that support in 2011 with an even better road race program for WERA, USGPRU and others.”
