For the 2018 BMX Racing season Box Components will be continuing its $80,000 contingency program for Pro, Elite and Vet racers! The program which started in 2017 awards pros who finish in top podium positions and also ran select Box products in those top finishes.
“We are pleased to announce that Box Components will be extending the 2017 #Boxriders contingency program into the 2018 race season for ALL Elite (Men/Woman), A Pro and Vet Pros.
In 2017 we had 13 Riders take advantage of the bonus money Box offered, with a payout totaling a little over $15,000. If you race Pro/Elite and are NOT taking advantage of this program, you are leaving money on the table! To get in on the program, contact Phillip Maxwell at (714) 449-9197 or phil@boxcomponents for more details.”
We think this is an awesome marketing strategy to get the Box name out there even more than it already is. It also fills the void of BMX Racing Pro’s earning more money for their wins. The other part about the program that’s great is ANY pro, elite or Vet rider can get on it, you don’t have to be sponsored to participate. So that means for instance, you can be a non sponsored A-Pro, race any national, win and if your signed up with the Box Contingency program you can get more money on top of your winning purse. Could this be one of the things that bring more pros back to the sport?
Below is a break down of the payouts.
Now there are certain criteria to qualify for the program which are listed below. Riders in the program need to be riding with these BOX parts when they win in order to quality for the payout:
