Suzuki Contingency Money Available For GSX-R Racers At Sonoma
Suzuki Motor of America, Inc. has increased the funds available in its 2014 Road Race Contingency Program, and is now paying successful GSX-R racers competing in the three-race GEICO Motorcycle Superbike Shootout. The series opened April 26 at Auto Club Speedway in Fontana, Calif., and moves to Sonoma Raceway in Sonoma, Calif., for the 2014 Arai Pacific Nationals May 3-4.
In both the Pro Superbike and Pro Sportbike classes, SMAI will pay contingency awards to Suzuki riders finishing in the top 10 in each race. And the top Suzuki privateer racer with the most points at the end of the three-race series – in both classes – will receive an additional $2,500. The top Suzuki privateer qualifier in each race will earn $500. The final race of the Superbike Shootout series – the Arai Mountain Nationals – takes place at Miller Motorsports Park in Tooele, Utah, May 24-25.
The 2014 Suzuki Contingency program also covers other road race classes at these three events and at many other races throughout the season. Visit SuzukiCycles.com/Racing for all the contingency plan details, and to sign up.
Suzuki pays contingency awards to racers through Suzuki Contingency Awards Cards. Money is added to racers’ card throughout the year as they compete and win races.
