“The Champion Racing Contingency Program will pay up to $1,000 product reimbursement for every sanctioned National Series Racing Champion,” said Mike Reddick, Champion's vice president of sales. “Champion will also pay up to $500 product reimbursement for every sanctioned Regional Series Racing Champion. Cash payouts are based on matching dollars of racer’s total receipts of Champion racing products purchased in 2012.”
