2008 Kawasaki Contingency Program Exceeds $13M


With eight new series added to the motocross and off-road schedule of events, there has never been a better time to race a Kawasaki. The 682 earning opportunities for racers to take home some of the $13 million-plus available in contingency payouts, makes it Kawasaki’s largest posting ever.

Joining the comprehensive list of series already included in the Kawasaki Contingency Program are the Baja Brawl, Bluegrass Championship MX Series, Maxxis Endurocross, Memorial Day Challenge, Mississippi MX Championship Series, South Texas MX Dealers Challenge, Texas State Motocross Championship, and the West Montana MX Series.

Adding to the great benefits that Kawasaki has to offer racers is an increase in payouts for Supercross and National Motocross, Amateur Nationals, and select off-road events. Combined with fast and easy payments that go straight to a racer’s Kawasaki Contingency Card, a thriving dealer support program and superior bikes, Kawasaki becomes the obvious choice for racers seeking a larger purse.

Kawasaki’s hassle-free Contingency Card allows anyone to focus on winning between November 1, 2007 and October 31, 2008 aboard an eligible Kawasaki model (2007 KX™65, KX85, KX100, KX250, KX250F, KLX™300R, KX450F, and KLX450R or 2008 KX65, KX85, KX100, KX250F, KX450F, and KLX450R) instead of dealing with bothersome paperwork.
In fact, the entire process is simple. Racers only need to follow these four steps to put money in their pocket via the Kawasaki Contingency Program:
1. BUY — Purchase a new or used 2007 or newer U.S. model Kawasaki.
2. REGISTER — Sign up at any local Kawasaki dealership or online at kawasaki.com. Those registered in 2007 must update their account to be eligible for 2008.
3. RACE — In any contingency paying event.
4. WIN — There is no claim form to file. Payments are automatically deposited directly to a Kawasaki Contingency Card, which can be redeemed at any Kawasaki dealer and more than 32 million MasterCard® retailers worldwide.
