Vance & Hines NHRA Pro Stock Contingency

Vance & Hines has announced a contingency sponsorship program offering payouts to riders in the NHRA Pro Stock Motorcycle (PSM) class who use the new Vance & Hines VHIL18504V Suzuki-based engine and Vance & Hines carbon pipe.

Riders that meet the requirements will receive $500 for a race win and $250 as a runner-up.
"Terry Vance and Byron Hines made a name for themselves and started this company at a racetrack.  We do everything we can to support racing with great engines and components, and this contingency payout is our way of saying thank you to our riders," said President of Vance & Hines Mike Kennedy.
To qualify for the contingency payment, riders must run the appropriate equipment and have Vance & Hines identification on their bike. The NHRA will determine who is awarded the payments. Vance & Hines Team riders are not eligible for this prize money.
In other news, Vance & Hines is to add six-time NHRA PSM champion Andrew Hines and four-time champion Eddie Krawiec to its NHRA Pro Stock Motorcycle Racing Team for the remainder of the 2021 Season after sitting out the first two PSM events. 


Both Hines and Krawiec will ride motorcycles equipped with Vance & Hines' recently announced VH160VT engine and NHRA-approved Buell 1190RX bodywork. They join three-time champion Angelle Sampey as part of the "winningest team in NHRA PSM history."
"It was hard to sit out the beginning of the 2021 NHRA Season," said Hines, "but both Eddie and I had our hands full at the RDC (Vance & Hines Racing Development Center). It was important for the business that we launch our two new racing engines and the components that our customers need.  When we went to the NHRA events in Florida and Nevada it was great to see our engines perform, but I really wanted to grab my gear and be on the track."
