Riders begin earning points for the 2014 MiraMonte Records NHRA Pro Bike Battle at the 2014 Amalie Motor Oil NHRA Gatornationals, the season-opening event in 2014 for the Pro Stock Motorcycle category. The eight riders accumulating the most qualifying points during the seven races leading up to the MiraMonte Records NHRA Pro Bike Battle at the NHRA Sonoma Nationals will earn a berth in the 2014 MiraMonte Records NHRA Pro Bike Battle.

“We’re looking forward to some heart-pounding competition in the MiraMonte Records NHRA Pro Bike Battle,” said Griego, C.O.O. of MiraMonte Records. “We are grateful to increase our presence in NHRA Drag Racing and we believe this opportunity is an excellent way to help showcase the unparalleled action and energy of the Pro Stock Motorcycle category. We can’t wait to roll into Sonoma and see the world’s quickest Pro Stock Motorcycle teams go after the MiraMonte Records NHRA Pro Bike Battle title.”

Riders will compete for a total purse of $68,000 in the MiraMonte Records NHRA Pro Bike Battle in 2014: $61,000 is available for the Battle, while $7,000 in bonuses will be awarded to the quickest Pro Stock Motorcycle qualifiers at each NHRA Mello Yello Series event throughout the Battle series.

The MiraMonte Records NHRA Pro Bike Battle winner will receive $25,000. The runner-up will earn $10,000. The two semifinalists will earn $6,000 each. The four first round finishers will earn $3,500 apiece. Low qualifiers earn $1,000 at each of the seven events in the MiraMonte Records NHRA Pro Bike Battle.

“With MiraMonte Records’ support of this bonus program for Pro Stock Motorcycle competitors, we’re guaranteed to increase the level of excitement in the popular two-wheel category during the famed Western Swing,” said John Siragusa, NHRA senior director of sales. “The MiraMonte Records NHRA Pro Bike Battle will certainly add a level of drama and intrigue to the NHRA Sonoma Nationals and provide one of the best showcases of high performance in the world of professional motorcycle drag racing.”

The 2015 MiraMonte Records NHRA Pro Bike Battle field will be determined during qualifying at 16-events, with riders starting to accumulate points at the 2014 NHRA Sonoma Nationals.
