While Mazda Motorsports’ parts support program may be the most valuable part of being a Mazda Team Support Program member for most Mazda racers, Mazda’s contingency awards program has paid tens of millions of dollars across thousands of racers over the years.

Whether it’s grassroots or pro racing, sprint or endurance, sports car or open wheel, autocross, road racing, time trials, rally or circle track racing, Mazda powers it, and Mazda powers its racers through the best contingency award program in the country.

From prize money valued as low as $100 for a 5th place autocross finish to help keep you on track, to as high as a quarter-million dollar scholarship for the Idemitsu Mazda MX-5 Cup presented by BFGoodrich® Tires champion, Mazda has a comprehensive program built for the weekend warriors to those who aspire to compete in IMSA.
