2016 Flat Track ContingencyHarley-Davidson and Flat track racing are two things that have become synonymous with one another. Harley-Davidson Motor Company and AMA Pro Racing have just announced that the very same generous contingency and bonus structure for riders in the Harley-Davidson GNC1 presented by Vance & Hines class will now be available during the entire 2016 AMA Pro Flat Track season.Harley-Davidson has set up a per-race contingency payout, which equals $96,000 throughout the course of the entire 2016 Flat Track season. The top-five competitors who have competed in the AMA Pro Flat Track’s premier division will be awarded a payout based on their placement. The unique part? The payout stands regardless of what brand of bike they compete on. But Harley has also upped the ante for any rider who does happen to succeed aboard a H-D twin by offering a $25,000 year-end bonus to the Harley rider with the highest point total.
Nobody can argue HD’s involvement in AMA Pro Flat Track or their impact on American motorcycle culture. From racing to the streets, HD has created quite the living dynasty for us to appreciate. Jared Mees, the 2015 Harley-Davidson GNC1 presented by Vance & Hines Champion is one of those proud few who have been touched by that heritage directly.“Harley-Davidson has been a part of Flat Track for as long as I can remember,” Mees said. “I’ve been riding the Harley-Davidson XR750 since I started in 2002, and I’ve been fortunate enough to gain their support throughout my career. A lot of what I’ve been able to accomplish has to do with the Harley-Davidson. I’m proud that I ride a Harley.”For more, visit Harley-Davidson Museum.
