Because of this traumatic event in my life, I have been dedicated to raising fund for The American Heart Association. I host several events a year, including a mini-motocross event. This is the third year we held such an event at my residence. My goal is to have a "backyard" style event with big event feel. The last two years that I hosted this event, it was very successful. It raised over $5000 last year alone for the American Heart Association.
This year, we have brought together some of the best mini riders from the northeast region to compete at this event. Along with those riders, we have commitments from several sponsors who are going to either donate product to raise money in a raffle and/or put money up for rider purse. Some of the sponsors include, Max Machine, 2up Racing, 230 Cafe', TB Parts, JJW Industries, Two Brothers Racing, HJC Helmets, Troy Lee Designs, Parts Unlimited, Toy Tech, ECS Honda, Brownstone Cafe', Koup’s, Rhinesmith Masonry, Turkey Hill, ECS Honda, and Vitamin Water.
The track is being designed, built and test by James Max of Max Machine, Inc. He is a seasoned A rider who has over 20 years experience in motocross. He will be assisted in the design and implementation of the track plans by many others who have been involved in motocross and mini-motocross, as well. It will be one of the best mini-tracks of the year.
This year’s event is coming together as being the biggest backyard mini-motocross race on the east coast. My goal is to raise $10,000 dollars this year for the American Heart Association. With a pigroast and live entertainment from the band Sugarcoat following the race, I’m sure that this will make for a great day of riding and fun for everyone.
