Vance & Hines announced a full slate of contingency sponsorship payouts for the 2021 American Flat Track (AFT) racing season. The program includes payouts for the top five riders in each class for every event. Additionally, there’s also a $5,000 bonus for each class champion. In total, the company is offering riders $73,650 in 2021.
“Our company was born on a racetrack, so we know how hard it can be to fund a racing program. We’re happy to continue to partner with AFT to support all levels of riders in this great American racing series,” said President of Vance & Hines Mike Kennedy.
The leading performance parts maker also partners with Harley-Davidson for the design, manufacturing, and selling of the XG750R motorcycle. These bikes compete in the AFT Production Twins class. Race teams purchase the bikes directly through the Vance & Hines Racing Development Center in Brownsville, IN.
The company’s sponsorship program provides cash awards to the first through fifth finishers in AFT SuperTwins, AFT Production Twins and AFT Singles at each of the 17 races on the schedule. Payouts range from $500 for first place to $50 for fifth place, with $1150 available per class at each event. At the end of the season, V & H will offer a $5000 bonus to the number one finisher in each class.
