Geico Motorcycle AMA Pro Road Racing announced today that the $60K Showdown will return to the 2013 AMA Pro Vance & Hines Harley-Davidson Series after a successful launch to the season-ending payout and shootout from the 2012 season.
Adding to the allure of the spec class, the extra funds will come in handy for the teams and racers in what is considered one of the tightest racing series, in terms of close and competitive racing on the North American continent.
Last year's shoot out saw Michael Barnes take the championship in what was then known as the AMA Pro Vance & Hines XR1200 Series in a close battle down to the wire at the season-ending round at the New Orleans Motorsports Park in early October.

Chisum is also a sponsor and supporter of AMA Grand National racer Dan Ingram #31 and the Brush/Eaken Racing 'Dollar Bill Racing' H-D XR750 and Kawasaki EX650 team.
