Air Fence Fund Tops $158,900 For Road Racing And Nears $15,000 For Dirt Track

The Roadracing World Air Fence Fund has reached $158,900 for road racing and $14,645 for dirt track. The latest road racing donations include $1000 from Sheila Barnes, $1000 from Anonymous, $300 from Thomas Patch, $200 from Ken and Joan Snyder/Team Snyder Racing, $130 from Hal Coughlin/Central Vermont Motorcycles, $25 from Erik H. Mathy, $20 (in addition to his previous donation of $300) from Eric Kelcher and $20 from Carlos Bonds.

With her donation, Sheila Barnes wrote, "My late husband, F. Allen Barnes, was quite a fan of motorcycle road racing and sucked me into the excitement as well. We read your magazine avidly, watched racing on Speedvision and attended races at Road American and Brainerd International Raceway when we could. He was particularly troubled when Joey Dunlop was killed in a racing accident July 2, 2000 (they were near the same age and so Joey was a bit of a hero for continuing to race successfully as an older racer and doing good works as well.). A few days later, on July 5, 2000, Allen himself was killed while riding to work when a vehicle turned in front of him (he was an advocate of the Ride To Work movement.) And a few days after that, I was saddened and shocked to hear that Jamie Bowman had succumbed to injuries while riding his motorcycle at Laguna Seca Raceway on July 7th. So much carnage in such a brief time, wonderful lives snuffed out, all deaths possibly preventable.

"Had my husband lived, I know he would have championed your grassroots effort to raise funds for Air Fence. It has taken me this long to come to grips with his death and what he might appreciated as a fitting memorial. Today is his birthday, and in his, Joey's and Jamie's memory, I would like to contribute $1000 to the Air Fence Fund. If possible, I would like the money used to provide Air Fence at Road America, where we attended AMA, AHRMA, and CCS races, or at Brainerd. However, as long as the money is used to help protect road racers at the many venues in the United States, we would both be happy."


Ken and Joan Snyder of Team Snyder Racing wrote, "Please accept the enclosed check from our winnings at the GNF towards the Air Fence Fund. We really appreciated all you have done for the safety factor of our sport. Additionally, we want to thank you for the support you have given our individual racing effort through the years. "


Hal Coughlin wrote, "I have not joined the AMA because they don't support helmet laws. I may yet join if you people have success with your efforts with the AMA. Keep up the good work and the great magazine."


On the dirt track side, new donations include $1500 from the 7th Annual Flat Track Golf Tournament, $100 from Glynn and Holly Hewitt/In Loving Memory of Darell Davis 96w, and $50 from Pro Plates.
