"Last season the Husqvarna National Contingency Program paid out a serious amount of money to Husqvarna riders throughout the country and our intention is to keep the momentum going in 2009," said Husqvarna Sales & Marketing Manager Scot Harden.
Husqvarna has posted over $180,000 for Husqvarna mounted GNCC competitors alone. The funds will be spread over 25 classes in the form of series bonuses and individual race performance rewards.
"Any way you slice it," continued Harden, "this 2009 contingency program is a further demonstration of Husqvarna's deep commitment to the sport of off-road racing and it is our sincere hope to reward the many riders who support the U.S. off-road racing scene, too."
