PICKERINGTON, Ohio -- American Motorcyclist
Association (AMA) Pro
Racing announced today the season bonuses for the Progressive Insurance
U.S. Flat Track Championships. Along with the traditional $100,000
championship bonuses paid to AMA Grand National riders, Progressive
Insurance will pay riders from an additional bonus fund driven by the
number of insurance quotes given to race fans.

Every time a fan calls 1-800-FLAT-TRACK 24 hours a day, seven days a week, visits www.amaproracing.com and clicks on the Progressive banner, or stops by the Progressive tent at a Flat Track race for an insurance quote, Progressive will contribute $1 to the 1-800-FLAT-TRACK bonus fund. The 1-800-FLAT-TRACK bonuses will be divided among all Progressive Insurance Grand National Championship riders who earn national points at AMA Progressive Insurance Grand National Championship races, and will be distributed at season's end.
"The potential for the 1-800-FLAT-TRACK bonus fund is virtually unlimited," said AMA Pro Racing CEO Scott Hollingsworth. "It's up to fans, riders and their families to help this fund grow. All they have to do is take a few minutes of their time to call 1-800-FLAT-TRACK, visit www.amaproracing.com and click on the Progressive banner, or stop by the Progressive tent at a Flat Track race. In the process they'll find that Progressive offers great rates, and motorcyclist friendly customer service."
To boost attendance and support the sport, Progressive has also committed to a direct mail campaign to current customers living in areas near Progressive Insurance U.S. Flat Track Championship races. Progressive is also supporting the national, prime-time, series broadcasts on ESPN2.
