Friday August 18, 2006 (Los Angeles, CA) – SpeedFreaks’ six year anniversary broadcast at Southern California's SpeedZone last month was a Freakin' Succe$$ on all fronts. The Freak Nation came with some fat wallets and left with some big smiles from the silent auction for injured Motocross/Supercross rider Ernesto Fonseca. Ernesto took a hard spill back in March and is partially paralyzed at this time.
It's not over by any means and now the real fun begins. SpeedFreaks have finally stocked up their eBay Store with more Big Freakin' Ticket items for those Freak Nation members that could not attend the anniversary extravaganza and Fonseca Fundraiser in person.
Of all the proceeds raised, 100% of the money will go to the Ernesto Fonseca Fund.
