About the NASCAR Prize Money & Decal Program
The NASCAR Prize Money & Decal Program commonly referred to as the contingency program is administered by the NASCAR Automotive Group. The program strives to build strong relationships with high-quality performance-driven brands that are leaders in their respective categories and award money to NASCAR teams via per-race and year-end postings. Competitors become eligible for awards money by displaying partner decals on the front fender of their race vehicles and in some instances use of a sponsor’s product. National series contingency sponsors will contribute over $8.4 million to the NASCAR Sprint Cup SeriesNASCAR Nationwide Series and NASCAR Camping World Truck Series in 2011.
