New Aftermarket Contingency Program Posts $2 Million

From a press release:<BR><BR>1-888-FASTLAP/1888fastlap.com Announces $2 Million Racer Contingency Program <BR><BR>1-888-FASTLAP/1888fastlap.com has a new racer contingency program for 2002 that is worth a staggering $2,026,560. This is by far the largest racer contingency program ever offered by any aftermarket company, and may be larger than all the other aftermarket motorcycle road racing contingency programs combined. <BR><BR>Paul Wright, from 1-888-FASTLAP and 1888fastlap.com, says the program will pay back through 10th place in nearly every sprint race in the country. Most racing organizations are involved, including AMA, WERA and affiliates, CCS/FUSA and affiliates, and CRA. <BR><BR>The new program is based on the use of 4 products imported to the US and available through 1888fastlap.com or 1-888-FASTLAP. Racers who purchase and use Kobe leathers, Venom exhausts, FM helmets, and ExtremeTech steering dampers will each pay contingency certificates, and you do not have to have all 4 to get paid, as each product will pay independently of the others.<BR><BR>Last year contingency was available through 1-888-FASTLAP/1888fastlap.com for Kobe leathers, and Paul Wright says those people who bought Kobe leathers last year will still get paid contingency, based on the 2001 program, for a full year from the date they purchased the leathers. To be eligible for the increased 2002 payouts, a new suit must have been purchased after November 30, 2001.<BR><BR>To be eligible for the program you must purchase the products new, return the warranty card, use the products at the races, list 1888fastlap.com and the product as a sponsor, and run FASTLAP decals and product decals on your race bike. <BR><BR>Contingency payouts for Kobe leathers, Venom exhausts, and FM helmets are 1st place through 10th place: <BR>AMA Superbike <BR>$500 - $400 - $300 - $250 - $200 - $150 - $100 - $75 - $50 - $25<BR><BR>AMA SuperSport & 250GP, WERA Nationals, FUSA Nationals: <BR>$100 - $75 - $65 - $50 - $40 - $35 - $30 - $25 - $20 - $20 <BR><BR>WERA, CCS, CRA, regional sprints: <BR>$75 - $50 - $40 - $30 - $25 - $20 - $20 - $10 - $10 - $10<BR><BR>Contingency for ExtremeTech steering dampers, 1st place through 10th place:<BR>AMA Superbike: <BR>$300 - $200 - $150 - $100 - $75 - $50 - $40 - $30 - $25 - $20<BR><BR>AMA 600/750 SuperSport & 250GP, WERA Nationals, FUSA Nationals: <BR>$75 - $50 - $40 - $35 - $30 - $25 - $20 - $20 - $15 - $15 <BR><BR>WERA, CCS, CRA, regional sprints: <BR>$40 - $30 - $25 - $20 - $20 - $15 - $15 - $10 - $10 - $10<BR><BR>The program is designed to pay the largest number of racers possible, and put support in the hands of up-and-coming racers who don't always finish on the podium. To achieve this, each of the four products will pay certificates based on your best finishing position of each weekend race event. Using all 4 products and winning an AMA Superbike race would get you contingency totaling $1800 for that event, and a first place at a WERA regional event would net you $265 in certificates. The certificates are redeemable through 1-888-FASTLAP or 1888fastlap.com towards any of the hundreds of products offered through their catalog or website. With this program anyone has the chance to get some financial support for their racing.<BR><BR>Full details of the program, eligible classes, and more information about the products is available at 1888fastlap.com, or by calling 1-888-FASTLAP. <BR>
