VALCOURT, Québec – BRP will continue its Can-Am Amateur Racer Support program and expand its support for side-by-side racing for 2014, in addition to offering $1.4 million in contingency payouts for Can-Am X-Team ATV and side-by-side racing.
Amateur racers who want to partake in the racer support program must buy a qualifying new or unused ATV or side-by-side vehicle and register with an authorized Can-Am dealer. Qualifying ATVs include all 2012 or newer DS 450, Renegade and select Outlander models. Qualifying side-by-side vehicles are 2013 or newer Can-Am Maverick 1000R or 2012 or newer Commander. Eligible racers who compete in applicable regional or national racing series can qualify for a vehicle rebate up to $1,000 for ATVs and up to $1,500 for side-by-side vehicles. Eligible vehicle numbers are limited.
Qualified racers can receive cash payouts based on their qualifying finishes. Payments are mailed directly to the participant or legal guardian. Upon the conclusion of the 2014 season, BRP will also award contingency payouts for overall championships earned. Championship contingency can vary by class and racing series.
Contingency cash is paid out in many major U.S. and Canadian national racing series. Approved series include the Grand National Cross Country, AMA ATV Motocross, AMA HS Nationals, World Off-Road Championship Series, Best In The Desert, ATV Mud Nationals and other national endurance events and regional off-road racing series. The list of qualified racing series in both the U.S. and Canada has expanded for both ATVs and side-by-side vehicles.
