THE PIRATE’S BOOTY Dear MXA, If I sponsor a racer and he wins, who gets the money? The racer or the team? Do the teams keep the bulk of the winnings and just sign a deal with the rider so he gets paid whether he wins or not? Thomas A. Klink Jr. via motocrossactionmag.com Good question. If a rider wins a race, he gets all the purse money— not only that, but you, as team owner, will also have to pay him a win bonus (often as much as $100,000 per win). Hopefully, your outside sponsors and bike manufacturer will help you with that. Oh yeah, and if he doesn’t win, you still have to pay him his salary and expenses.
THE GOOD-BUDDY NUMBERING SYSTEM Dear MXA, I’m confused as to how Darryn Durham and Michael Leib have two- digit AMA numbers when neither of them scored any points in the AMA Nationals or 450 Supercross series in 2012. The last I knew, the regional 250 East/West Supercross Champi- onship points did not count toward AMA National numbers because they are not a National Championship series, are held against limited competition and the classes are not open to every rider.
