Kawasaki Posting Over $1 Million In MotoAmerica Contingency

Win A MotoAmerica Superbike Race On A ZX-10R, Win $20,000

COSTA MESA, CA (January 24, 2019) – Kawasaki Motors Corp., USA has announced it will offer some $9 million in Team Green Racer Rewards for the 2019 racing season with the 2019 MotoAmerica Series earmarked for $1,118,950 in contingency.

Kawasaki’s Team Green program pays $15,000 to win a MotoAmerica Superbike race with $10,000 for second, $5000 for third, $2000 for fourth and $1000 for fifth. Team Green’s program pays $5000 to win the Stock 1000 class, $4000 for second, $3000 for third, $2000 for fourth and $1000 for fifth. The payout in Supersport and Twins Cup is $3000 for first, $2000 for second, $1000 for third, $750 for fourth and $500 for fifth. The payout for the Liqui Moly Junior Cup class is $2500 to win, $1000 for second, $750 for third, $600 for fourth and $500 for fifth.

“It’s great to see Kawasaki stepping up with its contingency program again for 2019,” said MotoAmerica President Wayne Rainey. “If you win a MotoAmerica Superbike race on a Kawasaki ZX-10R you will take home $15,000 from Kawasaki and another $5000 from MotoAmerica. Do it twice on the weekend and that’s $40,000. That’s a pretty impressive weekend by anyone’s standards. Kawasaki is also putting up a lot of contingency money in the other four classes: Stock 1000 pays $5000 to win, Twins Cup and Supersport pays $3000 to win and if you win a Junior Cup race you will get $2500 from Team Green. And Kawasaki pays down to fifth place in all of our classes. That’s a solid contingency program that will benefit a lot of our riders this season. We’re anticipating the best season of racing yet for MotoAmerica in 2019 and this kind of incentive for our racers only further ensures that.”

MotoAmerica’s purse payout for the 2019 season is set at $1,430,000 across all five classes of racing.
