With 2022 now well underway, racers worldwide are prepping for the track – and Harley-Davidson is no exception. 

On top of Vance & Hines offering a contingency program (their largest yet) to select racers under certain conditions for American Flat Track (AFT), MotoAmerica, NHRA Drag Racing, and the Xtreme Drag Racing Association (XDA) Series, the American motorcycle manufacturer will also be stepping up their support of racers on their bikes by making more than $500,000 available to select racers of the 2022 season. 

As expected, the pretty pile of green comes with a bit of fine print, with Harley’s press release telling us that those who participate in the American Flat-Track (AFT) Series and the King of the Baggers (KOTB) Class Race will be benefiting from the contingency program.
