American Suzuki is posting $4.2 million in race contingency for the 2012 U.S. road racing and motocross season.

The contingency program is open to amateur and professional racers riding 2011 or 2012 Suzuki GSX-R600, GSX-R750 or GSX-R1000 sportbikes and RM85/85L, RM-Z250 or RM-Z450 motocross racers.

“Suzuki is proud to continue carrying on this long and significant tradition of providing support to our most dedicated racers,” says Pat Alexander, American Suzuki’s amateur support manager. “We are excited about seeing Suzuki riders on top of the podiums around the country, in both Motocross and Road Racing. I have been fortunate enough to see some of the world’s greatest racing talent competing for Suzuki contingency dollars in the past, and I look forward to enjoying that privilege again in the very near future.”

Details for payouts and event dates and locations for the 2012 Suzuki Contingency Program will soon be available at
