Press Release –
In a sign of its commitment to ATV racing, BRP announced its 2008 Can-Am X-Team contingency program today.
The program will pay nearly $780,000 CAD ($800,000 USD) total to those racers finishing in the top three at nearly 80 rounds of racing across North America in 2008.
We are a company with racing in our DNA, says Del Bohlman, Media Relation and Racing Manager for Can-Am ATVs. ATVs like the DS 450 were specifically engineered to win races; competition drives us to produce a better product, too. This is one way we can give back to those who choose to race with the Can-Am family.
BRP Can-Am is offering contingency for the following series: GNCC, AMA/ATVA MX Nationals, WPSA ATV Tour, CMRC Nationals, CMRC Québec, ITP Quadcross, SCORE and WORCS.
All pro classes and selected amateur classes will see contingency payouts to third place. There are also built-in bonuses for overall championships.
