Maxxis Offers Over $1 Million Cash in 2010 Race Contingencies

SUWANEE, GA – January 28, 2010 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – Maxxis, maker of the best tires on the market for off-road racing, is offering lucrative cash contingencies totaling more than one million dollars to all ATV and motorcycle racers in eight major U.S. race series.

You read it correctly – CASH! Not just discounts, coupons or free products, but cold, hard cash. And these cash awards are up for grabs in nearly all classes. How could the deal be any sweeter? Well, payouts are available for first through fifth place in most classes!

“Historically, Maxxis has offered cash for certain classes and free tires for the rest. This year, we’ve gone to an all-cash contingency since racers are having a harder time than ever coming up with the money for things like gas, hotels and all other race expenses. And of course, the extra cash will help when they need to replace their well-used Maxxis tires,” said Maxxis’ senior sales representative Harry Tripp.

Payouts range from $25 minimum all the way up to $1,500 for the pro class in certain series. Riders can earn cash in the following series: AMA Arenacross; AMA ATV Motocross Championship; AMA Pro Motocross Championship; GNCC; Loretta Lynn Amateur National Motocross Championships; Maxxis New England ATV MX; OMA Nationals; and WORCS.

Riders must run Maxxis tires on all four wheels for ATV and on the front and rear for motorcycle, and must display the specified number of Maxxis decals on their vehicles.
