MotoAmerica Mini Cup racers will battle for contingency payouts of over $130,000 from Kawasaki, Honda and Yamaha in the 2024 Mission Mini Cup By Motul regional qualifiers and the National Finale at Road America in August.

MotoAmerica, North America’s premier motorcycle road racing series, is pleased to announce that three manufacturers have stepped up to offer cash contingency payouts for the 21 regional Mission Mini Cup By Motul qualifiers and the Mission Mini Cup By Motul National Final. The competition kicks off this Friday and Saturday, March 29-30, at Bushnell Motorsports Park in Bushnell, Florida, and March 30-31 at Apex Racing Center in Perris, California, hosted by 2 Wheel Track Days.  

Yamaha, Honda and Kawasaki will offer contingencies totaling over $130,000 for the 20-plus regional qualifiers taking place across the country and the Mission Mini Cup By Motul National Final that will be held at Road America in Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin, August 9-11.

Kawasaki’s contingency program is the most lucrative of the three with $50,300 up for grabs for Kawasaki-mounted racers in the Stock 110 and Stock 125 classes with payouts of $400, $150, and $100 for the top three finishers of each race in all the qualifiers. For the National Final, Kawasaki will pay $500 to win the Stock 110 class and $1000 to win the Stock 125 class.

Yamaha’s program totals $48,450 and pays $250, $125, and $50 to the top three finishers in all the qualifier events over three classes – Stock 50, Stock 110, and Stock 125 – with $500 going to the winner of each of the three classes at the National Final if he/she is racing a Yamaha.

Honda’s focus in its contingency program centers around two classes – Stock 50 and Street GP.  Each Stock 50 qualifier race will pay $150, $100, and $50 for the top three finishers and $300 going to the winner of the Stock 50 class at the National Final. Street GP will see a payout of $400, $250, and $150 per qualifier race with $800 going to any Honda-mounted rider who wins the Street GP class title at the final. 

“We’re very appreciative of the amount of manufacturer contingency on the cards for our first season of the Mini Cup qualifiers and National Final,” said MotoAmerica COO Chuck Aksland. “It’s great that MotoAmerica, the manufacturers and the regional clubs’ goals all align to get more participants involved in road racing at an earlier age. With the cooperation of all the regional clubs and the support of the manufacturers we are reaching more young riders than ever. The National Final in August is looking to be an exciting event, and we hope in time will become a showcase for all Mini Cup competitors in the future. We’re looking forward to the qualifiers kicking off this weekend and to the Mission Mini Cup By Motul National Final in August at Road America.”
