WHAT IS THE KTM CONTINGENCY PROGRAM / ktmcash.com?
KTM offers incentives for amateurs (dealer credits) and professionals (cash) riders when they earn top finishes while riding KTM 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. KTM Cash is the website used to streamline the program where riders can signup for the program, find KTM Contingency events and participating dealers as well as track the awards that have been earned and redeemed.
HOW DO I SIGN UP FOR THE PROGRAM?
To be eligible for KTM Cash, you must have an account on ktmcash.com. Sign up at the Registration page You will be required to add your KTM 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.
HOW DO I EARN KTM CASH?
KTM pays contingency at nearly 1,000 events / series each year in motocross, off-road, road racing, flat track and Supermoto. You can earn KTM Cash when you a finish in a paying position in a paying class at an eligible KTM Contingency event. For example, 3rd Place in 250 B Modified at Loretta Lynns AMA Amateur National. View the full list of KTM Contingency events at the Events page KTM Cash is awarded once a result in an eligible class / event / series is verified by the promoter.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN AMATEUR & PRO KTM CASH?
Amateur riders earn cash value credits that can be used to purchase products at any participating KTM North America dealership. To find a participating KTM dealer, check your local KTM Dealers
Professionals can earn Pro KTM Cash awards which are paid directly through a debit card. The Pro Payment Setup will require you to contact the KTM Contingency team and provide the necessary documentation in order for them to issue a debit card to you.
To receive a KTM 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 KTM 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 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 contingency_na@ktm.com
Once you complete the process KTM 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.
WHAT DOES "SERIES END PAYOUT" MEAN?
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.
WHEN / HOW DO I REDEEM MY KTM CASH?
Once a verified race result is uploaded (usually within 2 weeks of the event date), you will be able to use your qualifying money at your local dealership.
Amateurs: Once you have your qualified contingency you can use your KTM Dealer credit at any time at any participating KTM dealer to purchase KTM products and other products that will be used for your competitive KTM bike. KTM Dealer credit may not be used for any other manufacturer's bike or parts. To redeem your contingency, let the dealer know you are using your KTM credit and give them your name. The dealer will log in to their account, look up your available awards and redeem them for your purchase. You will be required to provide your pin number before they can redeem any KTM Dealer credit awards. The dealer has the ability to deduct partial amounts from your KTM credit.
Pros: Your debit card will be filled with the new cash awards within 30 days from the time your results are verified and mailed to you.
DOES KTM CONTINGENCY EXPIRE?
Amateurs: Yes, you must use your KTM credit at a dealer within 12 months from when the award was issued. Once the award has expired, it will not be re-issued unless there is a valid reason for it to be re-instated.
Pros: You must submit your pro payment info found on your dashboard within 60 days of the race. Once submitted, the cash will be deposited to your debit card which you can save or use at any time.
