Following its unveiling of the 2016 Suzuki RM-Z250 motocross bike, Suzuki has announced an overhaul of its amateur race support program. The new more powerful support structure is designed to help build future champions and reward Suzuki racers for their efforts along the way. With an all-new RaceSuzuki.com website, Suzuki Motor of America, Inc. (SMAI) makes it even easier for racers across the country to tap into the millions of dollars of contingency support available.

Powered by Hookit, an innovative digital platform of tools and services, designed to support athletes, brands and sports, RaceSuzuki.com brings a host of unique benefits to Suzuki amateur racers. The new fully mobile website provides an invaluable hub for amateur racers to manage, promote and monetize their ongoing efforts. The site offers robust athlete profiles, with automated race results and earnings updates. Racers can easily track upcoming racing opportunities, and share accomplishments and photos with the Team Suzuki community, conveniently through their PC or mobile device. The site also allows Suzuki racers to maximize SMAI’s champion-approved Contingency Program, offering nearly $4 million in support delivered through numerous U.S. motocross races, series and events – including Arenacross. Finally, the site brings Suzuki amateur racers and Suzuki’s network of regional dealers together more efficiently, where racers can redeem Contingency Program rewards.

“We are excited to be working with Suzuki to power their contingency program and support racers across the country.” said Scott Tilton, CEO of Hookit. “Streamlining the process benefits the Suzuki racers, promoters and dealers and we are honored to be the platform helps bring it all together.”

In another boost to Suzuki Amateur Racing support, SMAI will park its Trackside Support Truck at some of the top motocross racing events of the 2015 season. Suzuki’s Support Truck carries a supply of parts available for riders in need at a discounted price, along with a qualified Suzuki technician to help answer rider’s questions. Trackside Support is currently scheduled to attend the major events listed below, and others will be added throughout the season.

  • AMA Amateur National Championship, Hurricane Mills, Tenn., July 26 – August 1, 2015
  • Soaring Eagle MX, Soaring Eagle Casino, Mt. Pleasant, Mich., August 30, 2015
  • New Jersey Race of Champions, Old Bridge Township, N.J., October 4, 2015
  • Victory Sports Suzuki Top Gun Showdown, Blountville, Tenn., October 11, 2105
