MOTIV Locks In Dick Allen For Five Years

Dick Allen, who has bowled on the PBA Tour for 20 years and won two titles this season, has signed a five-year contract extension with MOTIV.

Allen, 41, just concluded his best career season on the PBA Tour and picked up wins at the PBA Lubbock Sports Open and the PBA Cheetah Championship. He now has seven career titles and has a 7-1 record in championship matches.

“This year is the best I’ve ever had and arguably this is the best their stuff has ever been,” Allen told FloBowling. “They’ve come a long way. I’m just happy I’ve been able to go with them.”

Allen signed with MOTIV in 2012 and four of his victories have come throwing their equipment. In addition to the two wins in 2019, he won the PBA Chesapeake Open in 2017 and the PBA Maine Shootout in 2018.

“They came along at the right time in my career when I was kind of fed up with the company I was with,” Allen said of signing with the company in 2012. “They wanted to give me what I felt was worth which was more than anyone else had done before. It felt very special to me when they did that.”

Allen’s career earnings on the PBA Tour are $735,808.67 with 2019 being his second-highest season from an earnings perspective. He earned $77,805 this season, second only to his $90,350 earned in 2005 when he picked up a $40,000 payday for winning the PBA Phoenix Classic.
