Press Release –
More Classes And More Race Series Brings Total To $1.3 Million
Valcourt, Québec, February 24, 2009 – BRP is pleased to announce an increase in its already-extensive 2009 Can-Am™ ATV race contingency program.
This brings the total money available to pro and amateur Can-Am racers to more than $1.3 million USD making it the largest ATV-only contingency program in the history of ATV racing.
The latest race series to be added is the American Woods Racing Championship Series (AWRCS) with a total contingency amount of $58,000 across seven classes in all 10 rounds.
With contingency dollars already available in the GNCC, AMA ATV Motocross, CMRC, ITP Quadcross, WORCS, SCORE, Best in the Desert, NEATV-MX, PAMX and OMA, Can-Am covers every major national and regional ATV championship in North America.
“This reinforces our commitment to the sport and illustrates our effort to reward racers who commit to Can-Am,” says Del Bohlman, Racing Manager for Can-Am ATVs at BRP. “We made a concerted effort to cover all the major series across North America and cover every Can-Am product from Outlander™ to Renegade™ to DS 450™.”
In addition, Can-Am recently announced the 2009 Can-Am X-Team DS 450 Racer Support Program, which allows a racer to get unprecedented access to factory support.
To be eligible for the $3,000-plus in benefits, a racer much purchase a new or unused 2008 or 2009 Can-Am DS 450 EFI ATV within the program timeframe and apply through a participating Can-Am dealer. Full details of the program can be found in the contingency section of the Can-Am X-Team Web site.
