The following is an industry press release...
Arai Helmets has announced that it has posted almost $125,000 in contingency awards for all sponsored Arai racers for the 2013 AMA Pro road racing and dirt track season.
“We haven’t always talked about our contingency programs,” said Brian M. Weston, Managing Director of Arai Helmet America. “It was just supporting the sport and the racers as we’ve done for so many years. But with so many companies publishing their programs, we wanted to reiterate Arai’s level of participation. Simply put, we want our racers to know we love ‘em.”
To be eligible, a racer must race in a DOT/Snell M2010-certified Arai helmet, and display Arai logos on both sides of the bodywork or fairing and on the leathers. It is not necessary to register with Arai; simply send Arai an invoice with the official podium position, event, and series after a race weekend.
