Ducati and Lockhart Phillips Push Air Fence Fund to $47,558, or Almost 17 Sections

Ducati North America kicked in $2900, and former AMA racer Wendell Phillips of Lockhart Racing contributed $2500 to push our Air Fence fund toward 17 beautiful sections of Air Fence to protect our AMA racers. That's almost 510 feet of padded barrier protection for our racing heroes, sons and daughters, brothers and sisters, friends, and competitors on the race track.

Other donations include $250 from Ducati North America Manager of Racing Operations David Roy, $600 from Team Daemon Racing, and $500 from Jim Davis of J6 Racing, who told Roadracing World that his contribution is in memory of Dirk Piz. Former racer Lucky Deleoni made his contribution of $100 to honor racers Brian Stokes, Adrian Webb and others who have supported him through his fight against cancer.

Since Tuesday, when the "Call to Action" was first posted on the Roadracing World website, donations to the Air Fence fund have poured in with phone calls and e-mails from racers, mechanics and crew, race teams, manufacturers and others involved in the motorcycle industry, as well as racing fans and friends of racers eager to support the cause.
