WHAT IS THE GasGas Motorcycles CONTINGENCY PROGRAM / gasgasracer.com?
GasGas Motorcycles offers incentives for amateurs (dealer credits) and professionals (cash) riders when they earn top finishes while riding GasGas Motorcycles motorcycles at select events across the United States and Canada. This is known as Contingency. There are no fees charged to riders, promoters, or dealerships to participate. GasGas Motorcycles Cash is the website used to streamline the program where riders can signup for the program, find GasGas Motorcycles Contingency events and participating dealers as well as track the awards that have been earned and redeemed.
To be eligible for GasGas Motorcycles Cash, you must have an account on gasgasracer.com. Sign up at the Registration page You will be required to add your GasGas Motorcycles Motorcycle information and some personal information so you can be verified for the program. Any rider under the age of 18 requires the consent of a parent or guardian to participate in the program, which can be provided during the signup process.
  1. Riders should use the same email address that is associated with their contingency account when signing up for/registering for race events.
  2. Your email address is used to associate your race results from the promoters. If the promoter has the email address you used to create your Contingency account, then the results and your account will align and you will have less issues with collecting your Race Contingency.
HOW DO I EARN GasGas Motorcycles CASH?
GasGas Motorcycles pays contingency at nearly 1,000 events / series each year in motocross, off-road, road racing, flat track and Supermoto.

Amateur riders earn cash value credits that can be used to purchase products at any participating GasGas Motorcycles North America dealership. To find a participating GasGas Motorcycles dealer, check your local GasGas Motorcycles Dealers
Professionals can earn Pro GasGas Motorcycles Cash awards which are paid directly through a debit card. The Pro Payment Setup will require you to contact the GasGas Motorcycles Contingency team and provide the necessary documentation in order for them to issue a debit card to you.
To receive a GasGas Motorcycles Cash, you must compete in a National Pro class. Please refer to the series payout page to see which classes payout in cash (they will have the signs next to each amount.)
After finishing in a paying position in a paying pro class at an eligible GasGas Motorcycles Contingency event you will receive a notification on your account dashboard asking you to complete the Pro Payment Setup.
The Pro Payment Setup requires you to download a W-9 (for US & CANADA Riders) or a W-8 BEN (for International Riders), fill it out and attach it along with a photo of your driver's license to gasgascontingency@brandecation.com
Once you complete the process GasGas Motorcycles will issue your check in 1-2 weeks.
Any U.S. citizen or resident alien who qualifies for prize money may be required to pay taxes on the gross amount. W-9 forms with a Social Security Number or Tax ID and signature are required by the United States Internal Revenue Service (IRS).
Any non-resident alien who qualifies for prize money may be subject to Income Tax withholding of 30%, which will be deducted from the prize money as required by the United States IRS.
This means that you only earn the specified amounts for each class / place for the series - not for the individual events within the series. You must finish in the specified place for the Series end overall championship in that class in order to earn the contingency.
