KTM to Launch ATV Contingency Program
With four ATVs in its stable, KTM has stepped up with a contingency program for the 2009 ATV racing season.
To reward current KTM ATV racers who are competing on 2008 or 2009 models, riders will now have the opportunity to earn their share of $529,000 in KTMCASH available in 12 different ATV racing series. KTM says it is the most comprehensive contingency package available to the ATV racer to date.
Once all event schedules are finalized, racers will be able to log on to http://www.xtrm.com/KTM to review the eligibility requirements, rules and series information.
KTM is also offering racers the opportunity for factory rider support packages. Racers are encouraged to submit their rider résumé to KTMATVracer@KTMNorthAmerica.com, fax 951-600-8866 or by mail at ATTN: ATV Racer Support 38429 Innovation Court, Murrieta, CA 92563.
Competitive racers may receive a rider support package valued at up to $6,000 along with a KTM E-Z-Up and select KTM PowerPart or PowerWear items. Résumés will be evaluated on the race series, class and past rider performance. There are a limited number of rider support packages available and résumés should be submitted as early as possible.
“KTM has always supported racing from a grassroots level,” says Kurt Nicoll, director of KTM Racing. “Being involved in ATV racing on the national and regional level is a great way to showcase how competitive our product is.”
The ATV contingency program covers multiple disciplines of ATV racing and includes the following national and regional race series: AMA/ATVA GNC motocross, Grand National Cross Country, OMA Nationals, WORCS, Extreme Dirt Track Nationals, ITP QuadCross, SCORE, Best In The Desert, New England ATV MX, TQRA – Texhoma Quad Racing, Mid-South Hare Scramble winter series and D37 Big Six Grand Prix.
“Providing a full package of contingency and rider support is a great way to reward our KTM loyalists and welcome new riders to the KTM family,” says Chris Vogtman, specialty vehicle product line manager. “KTM is committed to the sport, racing and our ATV product. After a successful first year on the market, our KTM XC ATVs have proven KTM is serious about the ATV business. With the expansion of our ‘Ready to Race’ product line to include the all-new and well-received motocross SX models, it was a natural progression to support racers at a higher level in year two.”
