Begin press release:
MotoAmerica, North America’s premier motorcycle road racing series, is thrilled to announce that Drag Specialties has signed a new three-year agreement to be an official partner of the Mission King Of The Baggers Championship. Additionally, Drag Specialties will also be offering a contingency program for the popular V-twin class.
Drag Specialties is posting $52,000 in contingency money in the seven-round series with eligible riders rewarded for their top-five finishes in each race. The payout is as follows: $2500 for a win; $1250 for second; $1000 for third; $750 for fourth; and $500 for fifth.
Additionally, Drag Specialties will pay $10,000 to the racer who is ultimately crowned as champion of the MotoAmerica King Of The Baggers Championship.
“We are excited to sign a new multi-year sponsorship agreement with MotoAmerica,” said Hylton Beattie, Global Motorsports Director for Drag Specialties. “Our partnership has been successful for both parties so we’re happy to continue for at least three more years. We are also pleased to offer a contingency program to racers in the MotoAmerica Mission King Of The Baggers Championship. The Baggers series fits right into a lot of what we do at Drag Specialties, we’ve seen the rapid growth of the new series, and we want to be a bigger part of it. It’s always our goal to give back to our customers and offering a contingency program to our racers is a perfect way to accomplish this. We’re looking forward to a close and exciting battle for the championship and we will have our semi at the tracks so we can interact with our customers. It will be a lot of fun to watch and we can’t wait for it to get started at Daytona.”
“We’re really happy that Having Drag Specialties is returning as a sponsor of the Mission King Of The Baggers Series,” said MotoAmerica President Wayne Rainey. “And the fact that Drag Specialties is taking it a step farther and offering a contingency program to our racers is a real bonus and really shows their continued commitment to our series.”
