Vance & Hines to Offer Largest Race Support Program in Company’s History

The 2022 contingency program is valued at nearly $200,000.

Vance & Hines announced its largest and most extensive contingency support program for motorcycle racers. The contingency sponsorships, offered in partnership with four race sanctioning bodies, has the potential to put nearly $200,000 in the hands of motorcycle racers in 2022. 

The program offers contingency sponsorship funds to riders in American Flat Track (AFT), MotoAmerica, NHRA Drag Racing and XDA Drag Racing. Contingency funds are offered to riders who are top finishers in a race or series and who qualify by using Vance & Hines products and services. Total value of the contingency sponsorship program in 2022 is $198,050. 

“Our company is built on a foundation of racing and performance,” said Vance & Hines President Mike Kennedy. “These contingency payouts are just one of the ways we support riders who use our products.” 

In American Flat Track, Vance & Hines offers funds to the top 10 finishers in every Production Twins and Singles class race and to the top five finishers in each SuperTwins race. In addition, a $5,000 Championship Bonus is offered in each of these three classes. With 18 races on the 2022 schedule, total potential payout in AFT is $110,850. 

MotoAmerica, the country’s preeminent motorcycle road racing series, has expanded its slate of King of the Baggers (KOTB) races to seven and includes Twins Cup races at all 13 of its events. Vance & Hines will offer payouts to the top five finishers in each KOTB and Twins Cup race and offers a $5,000 series Championship Bonus in each class as well. Total available payout in MotoAmerica racing is $44,200. 

In NHRA Drag Racing, riders who finish first or runner-up using a Vance & Hines four-valve Suzuki motor in each Pro Stock Motorcycle class race (PSM) earn a payout, and a rider could also earn $10,000 for winning the championship. Riders using Vance & Hines exhausts for their Suzuki motorcycle in PSM earn a payout for a first or runner-up finish at each event. Total potential payout for NHRA is $34,000. Vance & Hines factory race team riders are not eligible for these contingency payments. 

The Xtreme Drag Racing Association (XDA) series offers 10 classes of racing at six events which run from April through September 2022. Contingency is offered to the top two finishers in each class of each race for using a Vance & Hines exhaust or for head work done by the Vance & Hines Racing Development Center. Potential payout at XDA races is $9,000. 

Specific requirements for earning contingency payouts are managed by each sanctioning body.
