Valcourt, Québec, January 11, 2013 – BRP will provide more than US $2 Million to support its industry-leading Can-Am® ATV and Side-By-Side Racing Contingency program in 2013. Along with additional racing series, more classes added and expanded side-by-side participation for 2013, BRP has included the all-new Maverick 1000R side-by-side to the list of eligible Can-Am ATVs and side-by-side vehicles. Regional and national racers who compete on Can-Am ATVs and side-by-side vehicles in Canada and the United States are eligible for a cash payout through the program for the 2013 racing season.

For 2013 the new Can-Am Maverick 1000R (X rs package pictured) is an eligible vehicle for the 2013 Can-Am Contingency program.

“Racing continues to play an integral role in the Can-Am DNA and has aided product development and innovation at BRP. We continue to offer performance ATV and side-by-side vehicles, like the new Can-Am Maverick 1000R, that appeal to both professional and amateur racers,” said Jimmie O’Dell, Race Manager, Can-Am. “Offering a class-leading contingency program and a amateur racing support program is our way of adding incentive to those racers who choose to compete with our products and join the Can-Am family.”   

By competing in an authorized racing series on an approved Can-Am vehicle, participating racers can be eligible for a cash payout. Cash payouts are awarded to racers who meet the terms of the contingency program and are based on the racer’s overall finish at a qualifying event. Payments are mailed to the participants or the legal guardian. Racers who win a class championship will be awarded additional contingency at the end of the season. An archived  file of complete U.S. and Canadian contingency submission forms and racing series schedules for both ATV and side-by-side racing is available in both English and French here:

Contingency cash is paid out in all major U.S. national racing series, including the Grand National Cross Country (GNCC) series, AMA ATV Motocross series, World Off-Road Championship Series (WORCS), High Lifter Mud Nationals as well as numerous local off-road racing series. The list of qualified racing series has expanded for 2013 to include even more forms of racing, from desert competitions to hare scrambles and endurance events in both the U.S. and Canada.
