American Suzuki is offering $2.2 million in contingency for motocross racers.

To qualify, racers must compete on 2008 and newer RM85, RM-Z250 or RM-Z450 motorcycles purchased new from dealerships. Competing machines must retain Suzuki logos and have a yellow front fender. Suzuki riders can also take advantage of free trackside assistance at selected events.

“American Suzuki continues to support motocross enthusiasts like no other manufacturer,” says Brian Noah, Suzuki motocross support specialist. “Every dollar invested in the Motocross Contingency Program is going to the core of our sport – every local and regional racer who attends their weekly event in pursuit of victory. With the addition of the all-new, fuel-injected RM-Z250 and our race-proven RM-Z450, Suzuki racers across America will have a head start on the competition.”

Suzuki riders can earn contingency awards by finishing in the top five at events including AMA Arenacross, AMA Amateur National Championship regional qualifiers and other regional events. Suzuki will also award funds to top 10 finishers in seven major amateur national events: Lake Whitney Spring National, the GNC International Finals, the NMA World Mini Grand Prix, the Mammoth Mountain MX, the NMA Grand National Championships, the Unlimited Sports Winter Olympics and the AMA Amateur National Championships.
