Chuckwalla & CVMA Announce Over $130,000 In Purse Payouts For 2021-22 Season
Southern California, USA – As the Chuckwalla Valley Motorcycle Association (CVMA) approaches its 12th season, it has announced a greatly expanded purse program totaling more than $130,000 for the upcoming 2021-22 season.
Chuckwalla and the CVMA have consistently made improvements to the property, paddock, track surface, medical safety crew, racing structure and now the ultra-competitive CVMA Sunday Shootouts will feature four separate classes. Each class will pay back to fifth place finishing position in effort to incentivize and reward those racing with CVMA.
The CVMA Sunday Shootout purse payouts by finishing position are as follows:
Stock 1000 Shootout (10 laps) – 1st: $3,000 | 2nd: $2,000 | 3rd: $1,500 | 4th: $1,000 | 5th: $750
Supersport 600 Shootout (10 laps) – 1st: $2,000 | 2nd: $1,500 | 3rd: $1,000 | 4th: $750 | 5th: $500
Ultra-Lightweight Shootout (8 laps) – 1st: $1,500 | 2nd: $1000 | 3rd: $750 | 4th: $500 | 5th: $250
American V-Twin Shootout (8 Laps) – 1st: $1,000 | 2nd: $750 | 3rd: $500 | 4th: $300 | 5th: $200
Racers may race in multiple Shootouts each Sunday, but they can only collect one purse per weekend, ensuring that 20 racers will receive a check each round. Additionally, racers may be eligible for contingency programs from CVMA partnered motorcycle manufacturers, tire suppliers, and aftermarket parts companies which will be announced as details emerge.
The Stock 1000 Shootout (CVMA Supersport Open) rules will follow that of the standardized 2021 rulebook of MotoAmerica’s Stock 1000cc class. The other Sunday Shootouts will follow the 2021-2022 CVMA rulebook. Racers must purchase a CVMA Racing license, qualify and enter at least one race on Saturday to be eligible for a purse payout in the Shootouts on Sunday. For more details please visit CVMAracing.com.
“With an average of 175 bikes on the grid during any given round, the racers have spoken, and they love CVMA! To show our appreciation and our commitment to give back to the sport, we’ve decided it was the right time to step up and reward the most dedicated and talented racers in our paddock,” said Micky Grana, President of CVMA.
Kicking off September 24th, 2021, the seven-round CVMA series runs through April 2022. The three-day events include Friday Racer Practice, Saturday morning practice & qualifying, Saturday afternoon racing, and Sunday racing. Chuckwalla’s warm winter climate in the California desert offers the perfect competition and training ground from September to May.
On-site storage options for RVs & race rigs are available to CVMA members for the entirety of the 2021-2022 race season. We look forward to seeing you at Chuckwalla Valley Raceway soon!
