The OEM's pay large bonuses to their riders. When you win a class you also get a large bonus from the AMA and the OEM. The factory racers make most of their money from their salaries (ie. the OEMs), not race winnings./images/icons/wink.gif

Thats why I respect the privateers so much. They are going in under gunned and they're lucky if their money and sponsorship can cover their costs! They are racing for the love of the sport.

I know the guys who took 7th and 14th places at Daytona. Let me tell you, that's a lot of money to start the season with. If every track paid that well, they might be able to compete with the factory teams a little better.

In comparison, the other races don't pay squat. The guy who took 14th this year at Daytona took 10th at Road America last year. AMA paid him $700 for that, and a $1000 bonus for being the first privateer. Does that pay the bills?

To answer that, I'll let you know that it doesn't even come close. If anyone remembers Road America from last year it was redflagged quite a few times. Because of that, the guy I was with was out of race fuel, and couldn't buy any more of the $20 a gallon stuff at the track. We had to use the gas out of the generator for him to complete the race. Little frustrating when all the factory guys are coming in and getting front forks, as well as whole bikes swapped out to get back into the race.
