Air Fence Fund Reaches $130,140 With New Sections Headed For CCS, WERA And F-USA

The Roadracing World Air Fence Fund broke through the $130,000 barrier late Thursday, the new total reaching $130,140 thanks to new donations. The latest contributors include Anonymous at $500, racer Tom Drumm adding $300 to the $100 he donated earlier, Hewitt & Prout Attorneys at Law at $150, father-of-a-racer Fernando Peris at $100, Louis Gagne at $100, racer Peter Christensen & fiance Stasia Moore at $100, racer Paul D. Harrell at $100, racer George Gervasi adding $25 to the $35 he donated earlier, racer Charles Brothers/CMRA at $50, Francisco Prats at $50, Bernis B. Conatser at $25 and Tony Day at $25.<BR><BR>Paul Harrell, the Formula USA Sportbike winner at Willow Springs, wrote, "John, I know that many have told you to go to Hell, but you just might make it to the pearly gates. Thank you for doing something productive."<BR><BR><BR>George Gervasi wrote, "I would like to pledge another $25 in addition to the $35 I originally donated towards the fund for Air Fence. I am giving again so Air Fence can be used at WERA and F-USA/CCS events. I cannot state enough how ground-breaking this campaign was and still is. I think we can look at this effort and truly understand the undeniable power of unity and its ability to change an undesirable situation into a positive direction. Democracy if you will...'Take back the AMA!' Absolutely!"<BR><BR><BR>From Peter Christensen and Statsia Moore: "It's heart-warming and bone-chilling to read the stories of why others feel drawn to donate to this cause. The loss of life and limb has been far too great. There are no words to express how grateful the friends, families, wives, girlfriends, significant others and anyone who knows and loves someone who races are. Thank you for being an 'instigator', John, you are much appreciated."<BR><BR>Tom Drumm of the WERA BBS wrote, "I am glad that this donation doesn't have to be made 'in the memory of' Aaron Yates, Grant Lopez, or Tony Lupo. At the same time, the racers who didn't benefit from this Air Fence drive can rest because someone with vision and a heartfelt genuine concern got something done on a grand scale! Bravo, John Ulrich! I'm a club racer and those I compete with also deserve the best possible protection. So in addition to my earlier donation of $100, I'd like to do ($300) more."<BR><BR>The contributor list now reads: <BR>Erik Buell/Buell Motorcycle Company $5800<BR>Trent Thompson/Paramount Racing $5000<BR>Anonymous $4725<BR>Dynojet Research $3200<BR>Steve Brubaker/Race Tire Service $3000<BR>Willow Springs Int'l Raceway $3000<BR>John Ulrich/Roadracing World $2900<BR>Aprilia USA $2900<BR>American Suzuki Motor Corp. $2900<BR>Ducati North America $2900<BR>Jonathan Glaefke $2900<BR>Susie and Bruce Meyers/BCM Racing Ducati $2900<BR>Wegman Benefit Fund/Gordon Lunde Sr. $2900<BR>Performance Machine $2900<BR>Dunlop Motorcycle Tire Co. $2900<BR>Max McAllister/Traxxion Dynamics $2900<BR>Tom Chauncey/Team Wreckless $2900<BR>Wendell Phillips/Lockhart Phillips $2500<BR>Advanced Motor Sports/In Memory of Dirk Piz $2000<BR>L.A.
