Double Contingency Rewards Totals $1.3 million for 2010 Racing Season; Orange Brigade Program Announced
MURRIETA, Calif - October 23, 2009 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – Covering 13 national and regional racing series and more than 170 racing classes, KTM is proud to announce its double championship rewards 2010 ATV contingency program that puts $1.3 million up for grabs for novice racers to experienced professionals. In addition to the massive contingency effort, KTM’s popular amateur grassroots racer support program returns for the 2010 racing season buoyed by a new Orange Brigade dealer support program.
KTM ATV racers are encouraged to sign up for the double rewards contingency program at www.xtrm.com/ktm to have an opportunity to stake claim to their share of the $1.3 million. Once all race series schedules are finalized, racers will be able to log on and review the eligibility requirements, race classes covered and earn KTM Cash.
“This is the most comprehensive ATV contingency program to date,” KTM’s ATV Product Manager Chris Vogtman said. “Our double rewards program for 2010 reinforces KTM’s commitment to the ATV product, its racers and the sport. We didn’t leave out any race classes with this program. And, outside of the $1.3 million offered, that is what we are most proud of. We didn’t pick and choose what classes to cover in the 13 series. Any class our ATV can compete in is covered and that’s the way it should be.”
For the second year running, the grassroots amateur ATV racer support program offers racers the opportunity for rider support packages. The racer support program, like the contingency program, is intended for all racer skill levels and riding disciplines. Racers are encouraged to submit their rider résumé to KTMATVracer@KTMNorthAmerica.com, fax 951-600-8866 or by mail at ATTN: ATV Racer Support 38429 Innovation Court, Murrieta, CA, 92563.
In addition to the racer support program, KTM is set to launch its ATV Orange Brigade dealer-assist program that will allow racers the opportunity to ride for and receive support from an Orange Brigade dealer.
“The Orange Brigade dealer-assist program will provide a good foundation for racers to build a relationship with the dealer and receive support,” Vogtman said. “A successful race program starts at the dealership and ends at the race track. The Orange Brigade program will help racers achieve their racing goals. More Orange Brigade details and dealer locater will be available very soon.”
The ATV contingency program, which pays out to fifth place in many racing series, covers the following race circuits: AMA ATV Motocross, Grand National Cross Country, WORCS, New England ATV MX, Mid-South Hare Scramble Winter Series, Extreme Dirt Track Nationals, ITP QuadCross, Texhoma Quad Racing (TQRA), World ATV Motocross Championship Series, TORN (Texas XC), Best In The Dirt (BITD), OMA Nationals and D37 Big Six Grand Prix.
