Clear Channel Entertainment’s motor sportsdivision announced today that their $100,000 bonus award program, which is designated for the privateers, distributing $6,667 at each round to privateers that qualify for the 250cc main event, will be paid per event starting with the New Orleans round.
In an effort to help support privateers, Clear Channel Entertainment will pay the sum earned by the privateers one week after each event. In addition, privateers will be paid their earnings up to the New Orleans event this weekend. “It’s important to keep they journeymen of our sport on the road; therefore, we will begin paying the privateers throughout the season,” said Todd Jendro, director of supercross, Clear Channel Entertainment – Motor Sports. “The privateers have limited resources, so we want to get the money in their hands in order to continue racing.”
