Record-Setting Total of Prize Money and Contingency on the Line

MORGANTOWN, W. Va. (May 6, 2019) – Mere days remain until the opening round of the 2019 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship, sanctioned by AMA Pro Racing, and today MX Sports Pro Racing announced that a record total of prize money and contingency will be on the line for the world’s most prestigious off-road motorcycle racing series this summer. Support from the championship’s six competing manufacturers (OEMs) has surpassed $6 million, providing an unprecedented level of funding for American motocross.

“The unwavering commitment from our manufacturers has helped the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship reach an all-time level of contingency support, which will only serve to benefit the hundreds of riders that will contest the Nationals this summer,” said Davey Coombs, President of MX Sports Pro Racing. “The OEMs play a crucial role in elevating the global influence of American motocross, and Pro Motocross provides a platform for manufacturers to showcase their off-road endeavors. Our record sum is also a welcome indication of the overall health of the motorcycle industry.”

Manufacturer participation in the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship is anchored by the factory and factory-supported efforts of Honda, Husqvarna, Kawasaki, KTM, Suzuki, and Yamaha. Each respective brand’s contingency contribution will be up for grabs across the 40-rider fields in both the 450 Class and 250 Class, who will also compete for nearly $1 million in pro purse money.

Details surrounding each respective manufacturer’s contingency programs, including registration and payout, are available online:

American Honda Motor Co.

Husqvarna Motorcycles North America

Kawasaki Motors Corp., USA

KTM Group North America

Suzuki Motor of America

Yamaha Motor Corporation, USA

Reigning back-to-back 450 Class Champion Eli Tomac (Monster Energy Kawasaki) will look to join elite company in his quest for a three-peat, while a wide-open field of 250 Class competitors will each look to claim a vacant title, which would serve as the first for any of these riders. It all kicks off on Saturday, May 18, with the Bell Helmets Hangtown Motocross Classic, followed by a summer-long quest highlighted by visits to the most legendary and iconic racetracks in the country, from which a pair of champions will emerge at the Ironman National on Saturday, August 24.
