The Yamaha Motor Corporation is very generously donating a brand new 2008 Raptor 250 to support the RacerX/RiderDown Passion Tour at the Ironman Grand National Championship Series (GNCC) season finale being held this weekend in Crawfordsville, Indiana!
RiderDown will be offering tickets for the Raptor raffle under the Yamaha tent at the Ironman GNCC as well as at several other events over the next month. The tickets are $10 each and a maximum of 1,000 tickets will be sold. If you’re there, come by and get a raffle ticket and help an injured rider up at the same time! The winner of the Raptor will be announced at the GNCC ATV Awards Banquet in November.
“We were caught by surprise when Yamaha called and made us this amazing offer,” says RiderDown President, Bruce Vermeulen. “We would like to not only thank Yamaha for this great gift, but also RacerX, Racer Productions and the GNCC series for their support of the Passion Tour and it’s goal of helping riders up. Without all of them, this would not have been possible for us.”
RiderDown has been very busy this year helping several injured riders including Chris Blais, Doug Henry, Vince Karnow, Chase Borders and many more across the country. Through the efforts and generosity of the off road riding community, RiderDown has been able to bring significant financial and emotional benefits to those riders and families in need.
