Just over 10 weeks are left to purchase a chance to win a one-of-a-kind Buell Ulysses XB12XP and at the same time help support the flat track portion of the Roadracing World Action Fund.
Lloyd Brothers Motorsports, Inc. with support from Foremost Insurance Company, Arai Helmets, and AMA Pro Racing is running a very exciting fundraiser for the flat track portion of the Roadracing World Action Fund, a 501 © 3 non-profit organization with a mission of reducing racetrack injuries by advocating and promoting the use of soft barriers, like Air Fence*.
To get a better understanding or what soft barriers do and why they are so important, go to http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cd6UMGnIktE.
The grand prize in the raffle is a 2009 Buell Ulysses XB12XP that was used as the official Pace Motorcycle during the 2009 AMA Pro Road Racing season. The Buell, which has less than 210 original miles, was donated by AMA Pro Racing.
"AMA Pro Racing is committed to growth of flat track and safety is a major component of that process. We are pleased the Lloyd Brothers team is taking the initiative in organizing this fund raiser to help repair existing air fence and purchase new air fence," commented Dan Johnsen, Director of Flat Track at AMA Pro Racing.
The second-place prize in the raffle is a new Arai helmet donated by www.AraiAmericas.com.
Lloyd Brothers Motorsports came up with the fundraiser idea and has been transporting the Buell to AMA Pro Flat Track races across the country this season, promoting the fundraiser and selling raffle tickets.
"We are excited to help raise funds for soft barriers for use at flat track events," stated Lloyd Brothers Motorsports co-owner David Lloyd. "Soft barriers are invaluable to the safety of racers. We are really hoping that the flat track community will rally around this cause so that we can expand the amount of air fence available for the safety of our racers."
