Mickey Thompson Tires sponsors Top Sportsman class at XDA

Mickey Thompson Tires signs up as the new sponsor of the Top Sportsman class at the XDA!

The Mickey Thompson Tires Top Sportsman is a sportsman class designed for the quickest bracket bikes in the country! Most of these motorcycles run in the 7-second zone! This is an E.T. bracket class with a 32-bike qualified field and run on a .500 full tree.

Mickey Thompson Tires Top Sportsman racers just need to purchase a 2-Day Pro E.T. Tech card and will get two qualifying shots on Saturday that count towards the Top Sportsman 32-Bike qualified field on Sunday. On Saturday night, Top Sportsman racers will run in Pro E.T. that pays $3,000 to win. Then on Sunday morning if you make the 32-Bike qualified field, you will run in Top Sportsman which pays $3,000 to win. Those that don’t qualify will run in Pro E.T. which also pays $3,000 to win. In 2018, the XDA will be taking the Mickey Thompson Tires Top Sportsman winner (5th round) and advancing him into 6th round of Pro E.T. to take a shot at an additional $3,000! Now every Top Sportsman racer has a shot at $3,000 in Pro E.T. on Saturday, $3,000 in Top Sportsman on Sunday, and an additional $3,000 in Pro E.T. on Sunday for a total of $9,000 in just one weekend!

Jason Miller (XDA promoter) stated, “I can think of 9,000 reasons to run the Top Sportsman class at the XDA! The bump spot for Top Sportsman generally ranges in the 8.20 – 8.40 range, but after this announcement, it is about to get even quicker in 2018. We have already heard that many racers were stepping up to quicker Top Sportsman bikes next year, and this is going to accelerate that even more. Every single racer that buys a 2-day Pro E.T. tech card will be gunning to qualify for Top Sportsman because they have the chance at twice the money on Sunday if they do! Imagine this… going 5 rounds on Sunday to win $3,000 in Top Sportsman, and then advancing into the money of 6th round of Pro E.T. and you only have 2 or 3 more rounds to go for another $3,000 to win! We predict bump spots will get quicker and quicker at every XDA event, so make sure you are preparing your bike right now to qualify for Top Sportsman. The Top Sportsman class is just a bonus race for the quickest 32 Pro E.T. bikes at the event, and everyone can get in on the action… you just need to qualify!”
