The event is being held to provide support for the ASMF/R2R Mobile Safety/Sports Medicine Unit at the top Amateur Nationals. Realizing that amateurs are the future of motocross, we believe they deserve the same attention as professional athletes while in competition. The onsite medical unit debuted at Loretta Lynn's in 2007 and it provides treatment from qualified trainers and doctors that have a background in motocross injuries. The unit also provides mobile education with information on products that can help prevent injuries.
Each participant can register by building his or her own web site and setting a goal for their self. Friends and family will then be able to log on, search for their favorite rider and make a pledge in their name, either on a per lap basis or a flat amount for participating. The minimum pledge is $1.00 per lap with a 10 lap minimum, and each rider must have a minimum of $25.00 in pledges to participate. Riders may also sign up on the day of the event and have until November 17th to get all their pledges in.
Regionally, all participants are entered into a drawing for 2 Tickets with all day Pit Passes to a 2009 regional SX closest to their home. The winner will be notified on Monday, October 13th. Riders will be awarded prizes based on the number of pledges received. Some of the prizes include Bike Ramps, Leatt Braces, Complete Gear Sets, Kicker Sounds Systems, Honda Generator, and various Kawasaki and Suzuki models. Product certificates will be mailed directly to each participate, once all the pledges have been collected. The top rider nationwide with $5,000 or more in pledges will be eligible to win an MX bike. Cutoff date to be credited for donations will be November 17th, and winners will be notified on Monday December 8th.
