AMA Superbike bosses have revealed a $3.3M prize and bonus fund for 2009 which will see winners of the main American Superbike races walking away with $15,000 every weekend.

The total fund is spread across the AMA Pro American Superbike, AMA Pro Daytona SportBike, AMA Pro SuperSport and AMA Pro SunTrust Moto-GT championships next season, the total posted payout for the 2009 AMA Pro Road Racing season is more than double the total 2008 purse.

"We are pleased to not only offer what we believe are lucrative race purses for our AMA Pro Road Racing championships, but also the opportunity for AMA Pro American Superbike and AMA Pro Daytona SportBike teams to earn even more bonus money through the AMA Pro Road Racing PaceSetter Program," said AMA Pro Racing President Roger Edmondson.


"Our 2009 purse is richer from top to bottom and the PaceSetter program allows our premier class teams to earn cash bonuses while also demonstrating to the competition that they are AMA Pro Road Racing's leaders both on and off the race track."

With the majority of 2009's event weekends featuring dual races for both American Superbike and Daytona SportBike, purse payouts will be based on total points scored in both event legs.

Each of the premier divisions will offer $125,000 purses at each event with $15,000 going to the top points winner in each class. Second through 20th place finishing positions will earn $5,000 while the remaining finishers through 25th position will be paid $3,000. Each level of payout includes $2,500 in PaceSetter bonuses that will be awarded to eligible teams.
