Harley Davidson Contingency Programs for 2024 Race Season Announced

Harley Davidson has always been at the forefront when it comes to promoting motorcycle racing thanks to the rich history of this American motorcycle brand. Though Harley Davidson has no such top-end supersport bikes lineup, the company still enjoys an impressively huge fan base all over the world, particularly in America thanks to its vintage-styled cruisers and baggers lineups. As a keen promoter of moto racing, Harley Davidson takes an interest in facilitating flat track and bagger racing. The company fully supports the American Motorcycle Association (AMA), FIM, and Moto America to take American motorcycle racing to a more advanced global platform.

In addition to facilitating moto racing in America, Harley Davidson has also announced to support H-D motorcycle racers participating in the 2024 race season. As per the sources, the company has announced a grant of $570,000 for the contingency programs to assist H-D riders participating in the events alongside the H-D factory team.

For those unaware of the King of the Bagger series, it is a motorcycle racing event organized by MotoAmerica and AMA, along with several other facilitators.
