Event Purse to Increase for AMA Pro Road Racing's Vance & Hines Harley-Davidson Series for 2014 Season

Vance & Hines Harley-Davidson Series Event Purse Increases to $16,500 for 2014 AMA Pro Road Racing Events

Santa Fe Springs, CA, January 6, 2014 - Having completed its fourth consecutive season in AMA Pro Road Racing, the Vance & Hines Harley-Davidson Series has consistently produced some of the closest and most thrilling race action in the paddock, thanks to a format that places emphasis on rider talent and racecraft.
The spec format of the Harley-Davidson Series based on the Harley-Davidson XR1200 motorcycle not only maintains a level playing field for its competitors, but with a rules package that is restricted to minimal modifications, it also remains the most affordable class to compete in at the national level.
