From a press release
issued by Seattle 100 Charities
Danny Eslick, Dane Westby and Jake Holden join Scott Russell at the Seattle 100 Charity Event
2-time AMA Pro Daytona Sportbike Champion and current Michael Jordan Motorsports AMA Superbike rider Danny Eslick is no stranger to the Seattle 100 Charity event. Danny's past appearances have made him a crowd favorite at the long-standing fundraiser in Kent, Washington. Whether riding a sportbike, defying the laws of physics on a Supermotard, or just hanging out in the pits telling stories, Eslick has never failed to impress the event's participants. Seattle 100 Charities is thrilled to have Danny Eslick back at the this year's Ducati Seattle - Seattle 100 - Presented by 2Fast.
The Seattle 100 is also thrilled to announce the addition of AMA Pro Daytona Sportbike rider Dane Westby, aka The Wolverine, to the 2013 event. This will be Westby's first year at the track day fundraiser with Seattle 100 riders and fans expecting him to live up to his namesake! Westby is currently a rider on the GEICO Motorcycle Road Racing team racing a Honda. A DSB race winner, finishing 2nd in the 2012 DSB championship, and a hard earned 2nd in the 2010 Daytona 200, Westby is considered to be one of the next wave of great road racers in our country.
From its humble beginnings at a track day in 2003, there's only one celebrity rider who has attended every Seattle 100 event. His racing career grew from a club racer at the same track (Pacific Raceways) that the Seattle 100 calls home. Factory rides with Michael Jordan Suzuki and Corona Honda highlight a career that includes riding just about any bike in any AMA series. He'll ride anything and he's fast on everything. He's also friendly, funny and a great ambassador of the sport. The Seattle 100 is proud to welcome back Jake Holden!
Headlining the event, the infamous Scott Russell will be riding a specially prepped Ducati Panigale from title sponsor Ducati Seattle. Their Special Projects Group is building quite a machine for Scott to ride and are having fun putting something exciting together for him to showcase his talent.
Proceeds from the trackday will benefit Camp Korey (), a summer camp that serves children with serious and life-threatening medical conditions, who have never had the opportunity to enjoy the typical summer camp experience so many of us have been blessed to have. Many of the kids that come to Camp Korey, have spent the majority of their life in a hospital and after attending the camp, share that it is the greatest experience they have ever had. Camp Korey covers all expenses for the children to attend their summer camps which are held at the incredible facilities at the old Carnation Farms compound in Carnation, WA.
Started in 2003, the Seattle 100 event has given the NW track riding community the opportunity to ride on the racetrack with their racing heroes while raising money for life's real heroes, those battling life threatening or debilitating diseases. Past VIP racers include Ben Spies, Mat Mladin, Josh Hayes, Chaz Davies, Danny Eslick, Jason DiSalvo, Aaron Yates, Jason Pridmore, Jake Holden, Jake Zemke, Elena Myers and others. Participants are asked to raise a minimum of $500 in donations from friends and family for the "ride-a-thon" with a goal of raising a total of $100,000 for Camp Korey. The day ends with an intimate evening banquet, VIP panel discussion, and live auction.
