FRANKLIN, Tenn. (Feb 18, 2010) - Nissan Motorsports today announced its 2010 Racer Support and Contingency Award Programs. The Racer Support Parts Program is once again available to any driver competing in a Nissan vehicle. In addition, drivers competing in a number of designated race series and events are eligible for contingency award payouts. Qualifying series or sanctioning bodies include Sports Car Club of America (SCCA) Road Racing and Solo, World Challenge, Lucas Oil Off Road Series, Redline Time Attack Series, Traxxas TORC Series, the Formula Drift Championship and others.
Drivers must register with Nissan Motorsports in advance for both programs and award claims must be submitted no later than 30 days after the event to receive the contingency payments - which range from $100 for a first place finish in any class of Redline Time Attack competition, up to $1,500 for a SCCA National Championship in a Sentra, 350Z or 370Z. The top contingency award in 2010 is $2,500 for a World Challenge Driver Championship.
Nissan grassroots racers are given a valuable assist through the Racer Support Parts Program, which provides special pricing on Nissan Motorsports Competition or OEM parts. This program requires display of official Nissan and NISMO (Nissan Motorsports International) logos on designated areas of the race car or truck during all competition events. Components purchased through this program are intended for the sole use of Nissan racers on their race vehicles. Copies of the 120-page 2010 Nissan Motorsports Catalog are available now and can be downloaded at www.nissan4parts.com.
For more information on the Racer Support Program, or to order the catalog, contact Nissan Motorsports at 888/833-3225 or email@example.com.
