"The HRCA Contingency Program represents a significant investment in the future of racing in America," said HRCA Manager Bill Savino. "Many of todays top Honda athletes rose through the ranks of their sport with the backing of Honda's contingency program and we're proud to support the many competitors who receive our assistance today."
Supercross tops the payout charts with Pro racers receiving $50,000 for a single race win, and Lites Pro racers can earn $25,000 per win. Of special note, this year Honda is offering a $25,000 Championship bonus for both the AMA GNCC and the AMA GNCC ATV XC1Pro class Series Champions.

"Honda is also proud to recognize our sponsor support from Visa," said Savino. "Their debit card program allows instant access to Red Rider Rewards dollars and it's accepted at more than 32 million places." Now in its 7th year, the HRCA Visa program also provides online account access for reward payment and transaction tracking, payment alert via text message or email and 24/7/365 customer support.
